This first card I made using some of the images in the Beautiful flowers stamp set by #SSS. I colored them in with my Zig clean color real brush markers. I trimmed that piece down and mounted it on top of a piece of the patterned paper from ModaScrap that came in the kit. I layered the Happy Birthday sentiment also from Simon that I cut three times and then stacked and glued together, I applied some novo shimmer on top for some sparkle. I mounted those words onto two coordinating pieces of ribbon( I made a mistake in stamping and had to fix it somehow so that was my solution, I think it worked pretty well). I stamped wishing you with tuxedo black ink from Momento above the Happy Birthday words and then finished off the card with three colors of Nuvo crystal drops apple green, violet galaxy, and sweet lilac. I mounted the entire piece on top of a top folding a2 size card 4.25 by 5.5.
The second card I used the Sizzix embossing folder and a piece of the gold foil paper both from the kit. The dimension on the embossing is amazing. I stamped and embossed the sentiments onto strips of paper and them mounted them with foam tape. I tied a piece of black and white bakers twine around the bottom portion of the card and then topped it with an epoxy heart from a previous Simon kit. I added this panel onto a top folding white card base a2 sized 4.25 by 5.5. I think it will be a pretty wedding card.
For my first card using the SSS monthly card kit I used the ink cubes included and stamped some of the flower images from the stamp set and then coated them with clear embossing powder. I cut a circle from black card stock and stamped one of the greetings from the set and then white heat embossed it. I attached it to the front of the card and then added a few of the puffy stickers included in the kit around the edge of the black circle. I cut a piece of the patterned paper form the kit slightly bigger than the stamped piece and adhered it to the top. I adhered the whole piece to a top folding white A2 size card base. Super simple and easy adding only products from the kit.
I loved making this card. I cut a label shape from a piece of white card stock and then stamped around the edges with stamps from the kit using the ink cubes included. I mounted that on a slightly larger piece of the patterned paper from the kit with foam tape and then adhered that to a top folding white card base. I used the heart word and shadow die included in the kit to cut out the word with white paper and then ink blended on top. I cut the shadow from black card stock and then adhered the two together and placed them in the center of the label shape. I also stamped in black ink the little sentiment above the heart word die cut. I adhered the puffy stickers around the edge of the cut out shape and then added an acrylic heart sticker to the lower corner and then placed a few dots around with black Nuvo crystal drops. That finished off my second card, both were super easy and pretty much used only items from the kit.
These are the items that are included in this months kit. They kits are really fun because you get to try lots of new products and it’s such fun to go to the mail box and find a package of happy mail.
THIS IS THE 2ND CARD I MADE USING THE #HEROARTS #MYMONTHLYHERO CARD KIT. I STAMPED AND DIE CUT THE IMAGES FROM THE STAMP AND DIE KIT INCLUDED IN THE KIT AND THEN LAYERED THEM BEHIND SOME LAYERS OF HILLS AND GRASS. IN THE BACKGROUND I USED A STENCIL NOT INCLUDED IN THE KIT TO ADD A LITTLE INTEREST. I STAMPED THE GREETING FROM THE CARD KIT IN BLACK INK. I FRAMED THE CARD WITH A PIECE OF PINK CARD STOCK AND THEN MOUNTED IT ON A WHITE CARD BASE THE A2 SIZE SIDE FOLDING.
My first card I used the stencil included in the kit to add butterflies to my white base piece. I used the New Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks Squeezed lemonade and Mermaid Lagoon that were also included in the kit. Once I applied one color I shifted my stencil a bit to give a kind of shadowy effect and made some of the butterflies green by combining the blue and the yellow inks. I stamped the butterfly trail and the greeting from the stamp set in black ink. I stamped a solid butterfly from the stamp set and then fussy cut it out and adhered it to the card. I mounted the white base onto a yellow 5.5 by 4.25 top fold card base. The card was finished off with some clear Nuvo drops, I applied the drops on top of the little dots of the stamp so they took on the color of the ink.
The second card I stamped with white embossing powder and then colored the images with my water brush and Tim Holtz distress oxide inks. I stamped the butterfly twice and cut out the second one and applied it over the top of the first with some dimensional tape. I stamped a couple solide butterflies with some versamark ink just for light inages in the background. I stamped a greeting from the set in black and then added the whole white panel to a piece of the patterned paper included in the kit and affixed the whole thing to a top folding 5.5 by 4.25 card base. I finished the card off by adding some clear Nuvo drops to the buds on the leaves for some shine.
This last card I started out applying some texture paste to the butterfly stencil and then cut a strip and added on top of the two layered doilies. I used another piece of the patterned paper from the kit to cut a label to add my sentiment on to with purple ink. I also added a turquoise felt flower to the butterfly strip and then added more clear Nuvo crystal drops. The whole piece is added on to a piece of purple striped patterned paper from the kit and added to my card base, which again is a top folding 5.5 by 4.25.
Hope you like these, I had a blast making these using different techniques. If you have any questions or comments leave them in the comments section. Have a great day.
Made two cards using the Hero Arts My monthly hero card kit for February. The first card I stamped and embossed the feather stamps from the kit with white embossing powder and the did an emboss resist with my distress oxide inks in a rainbow order. Next I stamped the bird and branch images using the inks that came in the kit and then die cut them with the dies. I adhered them on the panel with foam tape and then added some sequins from a previous hero arts kit and then added a dot of Ranger black enamel for the birds eye. I trimmed my whole panel using a stitched rectangle die from Avery Elle then adhered the whole thing with foam tape to a top folding white A2 size card base.
The second card I die cut some eggs, nest , and leafs from the My Monthly Hero kit. I inked the edges and then wrapped some white eyelash yarn around the nest to look like nesting material and then added the eggs inside. I adhered some more brown twine on the outside of the nest and then added the flower and leaves. I spritzed the whole nest with some gold spray that was from a previous months kit. I then used some Spellbinders decorative curved squares to cut a couple of layers of paper from blue and green card stock. I layered those with foam tape and then added my nest on top. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in gold which was from a stamp set by Crafty Secrets. I added the whole thing on top of a piece of blue mulberry paper and then affixed that to a white top folding card base that measures 5×5.
Hope you like them, I had a lot of fun making them.
Crafty card I made using the #SSS February card kit and Crafty Friend stamp set. I used the orange patterned paper from the kit as my base and then added a piece of white card to stamp my scissors and dotted line with stamps from the kit in a rainbow color using Tim Holtz distress oxide inks. I then stamped the hello greeting using another stamp from the set and then mounted on top of another label I cut from black and white striped paper. I mounted that with foam tape and then added the scissors wood piece from the kit on top. In the top right corner I cut a couple of banners from patterned paper and then stapled them in place. I finished off the card by adding some dots with my perfect pearls in Pumpkin color to match the orange patterned paper I used for the base. I then mounted the whole thing on a top folding white card base for a finished A2 size card.
Another card made using the January card kit from #SimonSaysStamp. This time I also used my new die from #spellbinders #NeverStopMaking I love the die cut as a stand alone or as an inlay as I used it here.
Two cards I made using the #simonsaysstamp January card kit Favorite Person. The kit had so many cute products included with it. On the aqua card I thought that silver would look better with the patterned paper I was using from the kit so I embossed the sides of the piffy sticker embellishments with silver to match(they had a gold trim on them). I also cut a heart out and embossed it twice with silver embossing powder and stamped the sentiment from the stamp set with the same silver powder.
The black and red card is my favorite, I used my window die to cut out squares and then I cut the patterned paper piece from the kit into small squares and backed them with gold glitter squares and them mounted them in the window frame with foam squares for dimension. Then I cut some other pieces from the patterned paper to use as banners and hung them from the window ledge. I topped that off with a red heart from the sticker pack that came with the kit.
What a fun stamp set included in this card kit, what am I saying everything in this card kit is super cute. Everything I used on this card is from the December kit. So much cuteness.
