My fourth entry for the Hero Arts Holiday card challenge.  I really need to get some new Hero Arts products, I have used the Owl Christmas set on four different cards now so you can see a bunch of different things you can do with just one product. Hero Arts has some really nice products out now that I would love to get.

I decided to make this one a shaker card so I used the new Memory Box Tree Branch Circle die for the shaker portion of the card. I cut around it with a circle die and then a thin frame around the circle.  I filled it with some glitter and sequins.  I colored my owl with colored pencils and then fussy cut it out and mounted it on top of the peace sentiment which is also part of the Owl Christmas stamp set. I mounted the shaker portion on top of some matching polka dot paper and then added it to the front of my card base.  The card is a square card about 4.5 by 4.5 inches.  I tied a little pink twine bow for the front of the owl.  I finished the card off with some peacock liquid pearls on a couple of the polkadots.

Another entry into the Hero arts holiday card challenge.  I used the same Owl Christmas stamp set and I also used the Holly Flourish background stamp which I heat embossed using clear powder. It gives it a nice tone on tone look. I used my copic markers to color the owls and then fussy cut them and raised them up on dimensional stickers. Some red sequins in the corner mimic the Holly berries.

Hero Arts Holiday card series entry.

This is my first card for the Hero Arts Holiday card series.  You must use a Hero Arts die or stamp set on your cards and I only have two stamp sets so it might be a little tricky getting some variety but I shall try. This card uses the layering bird and branch stamp set. I stamped a mountain background scene behind my new Tree Branch circle die from Memory box.  Then I stamped and fussy cut out the layered bird on top of some bough branches from my Tim Holtz Holiday greens die cut set from Sizzix.  I mounted it all on top of some plaid paper and added some enamel dots.

I know it seems early for Christmas cards but when you hand make them you have to start early, especially when your trying out new products.  This is the new winter unicorn stamp and die from Lawn Fawn.

I love the sentiment on this set “All I want for Christmas is You (and a unicorn). A peak at the inside of the card, very simple.  Used my stitched rectangles from Avery Elle to make a couple of patterned paper panels to layer on top of each other.

THIS IS THE FRONT OF THE FROSTY FAIRY FRIENDS POP UP CARD I MADE.  I STAMPED AND DIE CUT THE IMAGES USING THE NEW FROSTY FAIRY FRIENDS STAMP AND DIE SET.

I USED COPIC MARKERS TO COLOR THE IMAGES AND THEN ADDED A LITTLE CLEAR WINK OF STELLA ON TOP TO HIGHLIGHT THE IMAGES.

THEN YOU OPEN UP THE CARD AND HERE IS WHERE THE MAGIC REALLY HAPPENS. I USED THE SAME STAMP AND DIE SET FOR THE IMAGES  AND THEN I ALSO USED THE NEW STITCHED HILLSIDE POP UP DIE FROM LAWN FAWN TO CREATE MY SILVER HILLS. I LOVE THIS DIE, IT WAS SO EASY TO USE .

I USED AN EMBOSSING FOLDER ON THE LIGHT BLUE PAPER IN THE BACKGROUND FOR A WINDY SKY LOOK.  THEN I STAMPED A SENTIMENT FROM THE SET ON THE BASE OF THE CARD. LOVE THE DIMENSION THIS POP UP DIE GIVES YOU. CAN’T WAIT TO MAKE A BUNCH A MORE.
