Key To My Heart Card | Hero Arts | IG Hop

Hello Friends, hope you had a wonderful crafty weekend!

Today's card is part of the Hero Arts Global team, Instagram Hop. If you would like to join the short hop click HERE to get started and you could win one of 3 coordinating stamp and die sets that I will be giving away! (More details over on Instagram.)

So let me tell you how this pretty came together!
CARD RECIPE

To begin, I used the Chain Linked Fancy Die to die cut the front of the card base, this creates the see-through part of the window on the front panel. I then opened up the card base and glued a piece of acetate to cover up the opening. To finish off the inside of the card I die cut another white card panel using the Chain Linked Fancy Die and then lined it up with the opening and then glued it in place, sandwiching the acetate piece in between.

Next, I die cut the Chain Linked Fancy Die again this time using silver cardstock, and glued it to the acetate front. I then attached two locks to the fence that were die-cut from the Locks Fancy Dies.

To create these sparkly no line colored Peonies, I first stamped out the Peonies Bunch using Contour Ink. (Leave the stamp in the Misti as you will need it for another step later on). I then blended out the fowers using the Layering Peonies Bunch Stencil and a rainbow of Reactive Ink cubes. 

Next, I placed the image back in the Misti and used a powder bag to ensure the ink was dry, and then re-stamped the image using the Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. To make the stamped sparkle embossing stick, I first applied a Sticky Embossing Powder and heat set it, then added the sparkle powder. I then die-cut the flowers using the coordinating dies for the Peonies Bunch and added them to the bottom of the card front, trimming off pieces that hung over the card base.

For the sentiment on the inside, I used Intens-ified Black Ink Pad to add one of the sentiments from the Key to My Heart stamp set.

Thank you for stopping by and until next time... I hope you can join me over on Instagram for this fun hop.

Happy Crafting dear friends!
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!
