Pop of Color


I am sharing a card I made using an old Hero Arts ink and a new Hero Arts stencil.  I've received this very pretty Hero Arts stencil from Michelle Lupton, my fellow A Blog Named Hero Facebook teammate.  And I want to link this card to the August Challenge of A Blog Named Hero - Pop Of Color.

To create this card, I first lay down the Delicate Petal stencil onto a white panel.  Then sponge Soft Leaf all over.  Then I stamp the sentiment.  Next I die cut twice the heart (from the So Sorry stamp & cut set) using thin card board and glue it together, and use this to dry emboss the raised heart shape.  I adhere the panel onto a card base, and lastly I die cut the 'thanks' using hot pink card stock and adhere to card.  The hot pink 'thanks' is my Pop of Color!

Summer vacation aka Pool time

Happy August everyone!!!

I am anxious to share my Summer Vacation card for Die Cut Diva's August challenge.  So let's get right to it.

Ahhhhhh nothing speaks summer vacation to me more than this!!  :D  And I wish I am that young too!!  Hahaha!  This adorable digi stamp is called Pool Time Ali by Simply B Stamps.

I color her using coloring pencils, and paper pieced her bathing suit.  To make it looks like she partly submerged in water, I adhere vellum.  The rest of the card is pretty much self explanatory.

Here's a close up:

The speech bubble is from the Hero Arts Yes Stamp & Cut set.  Sentiment is from the Weather Related clear stamp set by A Creative Journey with Melissa.

Thanks for stopping by.  I wish you a lovely day!!

Hello everybody,

Do you think what is happening in your life affects your creating thoughts?  And your work reflects your mood?

If you say Yes, then you would understand why my card may be a little sad today since there is a recent death in the family.  But life goes on.

A Blog Named Hero's July Challenge is Masculine.

I've made a no frill CAS card.

Since I don't own too many 'masculine' stamp, when I make this type of card, I rely on pattern paper to help me out.  I choose pattern that is less flowery, neutral in color, and/or has some graphic elements on it.  And to add interest without the bulk, I use ombre inks.

What's your tips on creating masculine cards?  Would love it if you'd share.

Hero Arts stamp: Forever (from the Stamp Your Story collection)
Hero Arts ombre ink: Mint to Green, Tide Pool to Navy
Memories dye ink: Grey, Sand

Thanks for stopping by.  Cherish today and everyday!
