Here is the December Hero Arts card kit for 2016. Although I like the kit I was having trouble finding the inspiration putting together the 10 cards. Some came naturally and turned out really well, while other cards were not so hot, lol. For the process video and a list of supplies, click here.
For the card below I stamped out each image and used my Xyron Sticker Maker to add adhesive to a sheet of vellum. It turned out perfect as I was able to attach my vellum and not worry about where I was going to add adhesive and if it was going to be seen.
For this card I did some quick ink blending and splatter.
This card….. I have no words, but looking at it I think I was channeling a 5 year old…. I hate it, LOL. Keep scrolling!!!
For the card below I used some of the washi tape that came in the kit that is really cute! I love the sun ray (for lack of a better term) die that came in the kit.
My plan for the card below to watercolor a certain way took a turn and I had to scrap my original plan. I used a scallop edge die and heat embossed the cheers stamp for my sentiment.
This card is my favorite! I love this gold foil cardstock that came in the kit. I heat embossed some images in gold embossing powder and they went so well with the paper
Hey guys! So I am lumping 3 days of my holiday card series into one post today to make things a little easier and to catch you guys up!
For day 15 I used a Unity Stamp Co. stamp called, Love Bug Christmas. I water colored the image using Distress Inks and I really like the way it turned out. Since I did a previous holiday card with a red truck, I decided to paint this one yellow.

On to day 16! I used another Sunny Studio stamp set called Merry Sentiments. This was another layering stamp set and if you know me, you know I love my layered stamps! If you would like to see the process video, click here. As always you will find a list of supplies there too.
Finally day 17… For this card I used Hero Arts Santa’s Elves. This stamp set is sooooo cute! I colored them with my Prismacolors and used the MFT Peekaboo die to make it appear they are behind the card peeking out. Love this card. If you want to see the process video, click here. Enjoy!
Here is day 11 of my holiday card series. I used the lovely Hero Arts Cardinal Layering stamp set. I used Lawn Fawn inks and a Recollections Paper Pack for the glittery wood grain background. The video lists the inks I used and in what order. I also mentioned in the process video that I will be doing a layering stamp series sometime early next year. So stay tuned!!
Here is day 5 of my holiday card series. I used the beautiful Hero Arts Layering Deer stamp set to create this winter scene. To see the process video and links to the supplies I used, click this link: Process Video
Stay tuned for day 6 coming very soon! Hopefully I can complete my series before Christmas!
Welcome to day 2 of my holiday series. Today I wanted to do a snowflake card with some blues and purple distress ink. I got my color inspiration from a card I saw online and I really like how the colors blended and turned out.
I used Lawn Fawn’s Put a Bow on It to create a bow which was not my original plan, but turned out pretty cute. I used the same glitter paper to create the snowflakes.

Welcome to day 1 of my 12 Days of Christmas tags series. For day 1 I thought I would keep it fairly simple with the Hero Arts Coffee Cup stamp set that is perfect for tags. I used Lawn Fawn inks to stamp up my images. I used Hero Arts white puff embossing powder for my whip cream creating a little bit of dimension.
Below are pictures of each color of tag with a little description. If you want to see the process video as well as links to the supplies I used, click link below.
I used Lawn Fawn Lobster for the red tags with red twine. Red Lobster is one of my favorite red inks!
I thought I would try something different and used black card stock with Yeti, Lawn Fawn’s white pigment ink. It looks like a chalkboard in this picture. Although black may not be ones first thought for gift tags, there is some beautiful wrapping paper out there where the black tags would match perfectly.
For the green tags I used Lawn Fawn’s Noble Fir. It is a beautiful green, but some of the detail on the words cup was lost. My ink pad may have been juicier than my other inks. Still looks lovely!
The blue ink was Lawn Fawn’s Blue Jay and my absolute favorite! The dark rich blue with the green holly is beautiful. The word cup stamped out nicely with no loss in details.
