Best Friend, You Hold a Key to my Heart Card | Hero Arts

Best Friend, You Hold a Key to my Heart Card, Hero Arts, Paper Crafters Unite Against Racism, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,My Monthly Hero Kit,January 2022,

Hello dear friends, 

Today's card is part of a special hop where the community of paper crafters unites against racism. If you would like to take part in this wonderful event hop on over to Instagram

The goal of this hop is to continue to raise awareness about anti-racism; to stand with our BIPOC, AAPI, Palestinian, and Indigenous communities, and to encourage everyone to continue learning and to start taking action.  Injustice Anywhere is Injustice EVERYWHERE.  We are all one humanity and should find a way to work towards a more equitable world, in a way that makes sense for YOU.  Silence, inaction, and passivity are detrimental to justice.

I tried to capture the innocence of these two beautiful best friends, who have unlocked each other's hearts and love each other for their differences.


This sweet card features a few of the January My Monthly Hero Kit Add-Ons from Hero Arts. I stamped out the flower girts from Flower Girls Bundle using Intens-ified Black Ink Pad then watercolored them in using Karin Brushmarkers. Behind the girls, I ink blended a heart using a heart stencil that I made by die cutting one of the nested heart dies. Onto the heart, I then glued the chain-linked fence that I trimmed to fit the heart using the Chain Linked Fancy Die

For the sentiment, I combined a few from the Flower Girls Stamp set and the My Monthly Hero Kit January 2022 set and stamped them out using the Intens-ified Black Ink Pad

To finish I stamped out the tiniest heart lock from the Key to My Heart Bundle and glued it to the fence.

I hope to see you all over on Instagram to help spread the love and stop the hate... even if it is only one card at a time!

Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!
Ilda 🤍🤎🖤

January 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit | Sympathy Card | Hero Arts

January 2022, My Monthly Hero Kit,Sympathy Card,Hero Arts,Ink BCard Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,   lending,

Hello friends, feels like it's been too long since my last post. Life has been a bit crazy and my precious crafty time has been limited. Hopefully, that will get better soon.

My card today features the January 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts. This kit is so beautiful and could be used for so many different occasions. 
The kit includes the following

• 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
• 3 Coordinating Frame Cuts
• 4.25″ x 5.5″ Fancy Cover Plate Die
• 1 Key Fancy Die
• 4 Ink Cubes (Key Lime Fizz, Taffy, Green Apple, Cup O’ Joe)
• Red Iridescent Gems

Kit Value: $80
Kit Cost: $34.99

Also, don't forget to check out the amazing ADD-ONS!

Ironically the timing of this kit arrived when I needed it the most. Sadly, a friend and colleague of mine just lost her newborn baby to SIDS. We are all mourning the loss of her firstborn baby boy at work. I pray for her and her family during these difficult times and can only imagine the heartbreak they must be going through.

In honor of her baby boy, I created this card to give to her and her family as they lay his little body to rest today.

To stamp the leaves, I used Splash and Blue Hawaii Ink cubes. The branch, swing, and sentiment were stamped out using Cup O'Joe Ink. The dark brown shade was done using Root Beer ink.

For the sunset background, I ink blended Lemon Drop, Berry Smoothie, and Splash Reactive Inks together. 

I used foam to add dimension in between the layers and finished off this card with a little bit of bling using blue gemstone stickers.

I hope this card inspired you today. I'm sorry that this was kind of a depressing post. Hopefully, you won't be in need of a sympathy card soon. 

Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!

Cityscape Friendship Cards | Hero Arts

Cityscape, New Adventure, Card, Hero Arts, Missing You, Shaker,Ink Blending,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, My Monthly Hero Kit DECEMBER 2021

I am back again today with a few cards featuring the amazing December Add-Ons from this month's Release from Hero Arts.

This first card features the City Window Fancy Die that I turned into a shaker card. To create the sunset background I ink blended Lemon Drop, Berry Smoothie, and Splash Reactive Inks together.

To create the shaker window,  I added acetate to the window opening then lined the edges with foam tape. I then filled the shaker area with a sequin mix and closed it up with the blended background. To finish off this clean and simple card I stamped the sentiment "wishing we lived closer" from the Wherever You Go stamp set using Intens-ified Black Ink.

For this next colorful creation, I combined a couple of the new die sets to create this Cityscape scene. I used dies from the City Park HeroScape Frame Cuts as well as the Tri-fold Edge City Fancy Dies. To make it look like the lights were all on in the buildings I trace the outline of the buildings onto a piece of yellow cardstock and then fussy cut them out. I then layered and glue the die-cut buildings onto the yellow cardstock layer.

Doesn't this remind you of New York City and the views you might see looking from Central Park? I can't wait to visit NYC again. Hopefully someday soon!

I used a bunch of scrap pieces of paper to create the layers for this scene and then backed them onto a piece of Pitch Black Cardstock that I had splattered with Unicorn Pigment Ink. I also used the Unicorn Pigment Ink to stamp the sentiment from the City Park HeroScape that was then heat set using White Detail Embossing Powder.

To finish my starry sky I added a scattering of bubbles.
