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!

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!

DECEMBER 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit | Hero Arts

DECEMBER 2021, My Monthly Hero Kit,Hero Arts, | City Scape, Missing You, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Hello, my friends!

The December 2021 My Monthly Hero kit is live!  So I can finally share a couple of cards featuring the new kit. This month's kit is all about cities and neighborhoods. Perfect for those moving, traveling, missing you, thinking of you friendship cards, and many more themes. This month's theme also reminds me of how much I miss traveling and seeing different cities. 

For this card, I stamped the background using Unicorn Pigment Ink onto Pitch Black Cardstock and heat embossed the lines with White Detail Embossing Powder. I then fussy cut a roofline and attached this city scene to the ink blended card panel that I had blended out the sunrise using the inks included in the kit. The sentiment was stamped out using an Intens-ified Black Ink Pad with a few stamps from the included stamp set. To finish I added a few sparkly sequins.

For this next card, I made the entire background panel using the full stamped image that I cut to A2 size. I repeated the same process to stamp the background using Unicorn Pigment Ink onto Pitch Black Cardstock and heat embossed the lines with White Detail Embossing Powder. I then chose one of the little houses and stamped the house using a red piece of cardstock, fussy cut it, and glued it to a strip of paper that I had stamped out another sentiment from the included set.  I then used foam tape to add the house and sentiment onto the card panel.

To finish, I added the hey! using the same Intens-ified Black Ink Pad and then used the coordinating bubble die from the included die set and popped it in place. Finally, trimmed down the entire panel and added it to the card base. 

Looking at this card now, I realized I forgot to add some bling😱! I never do that!!! Shhh, don't tell anyone... it's our secret!

Christmas Present Card Set | My Monthly Hero Kit for NOVEMBER 2021 | Hero Arts


Christmas Present Cards, Card Set, My Monthly Hero Kit, NOVEMBER 2021,Hero Arts, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Hello, my friends!

I am back again today with a second blog post, this time for my first post as an official team member of the Hero Arts Global Team! YAY!!!πŸ’ƒ

My cards feature the My Monthly Hero Kit for NOVEMBER 2021 which is already SOLD OUT! What!?! Can you believe it?! Wow, that went fast, so I hope you were one of the lucky ones to get your hands on one. Also, remember there are the Awesome Add-Ons that are still available! I will be sharing a few more cards throughout the month using them as well. So let's get on with sharing these fun cards.

The idea behind this card set was to make the cards look like Christmas presents. All the cards came together using the same process, I will explain the first card and then share the differences along the way so I am not repeating myself.

For this first card, I pieced together the Santa. 
  • To his hat, I used pieces of white glitter paper
  • Stamped the sentiment on his hat using Intensified Black Ink
  • Added color to his nose and cheeks using RV10 Copic marker.
  • Added white gel pen details, and drew tiny eyelashes with a black detail pen.
  • Tied the Holiday Twine onto the Hat Loop.

For the card base and panel.
  • Stamp the Merry Christmas Sentiment on the card panel using Versamark Ink.
  • Then rub the surface of the card using perfect pearls confetti white to give it a hint of shine.
  • Trim a couple of pieces of white glitter paper cardstock to create the illusion of the ribbon tied onto the present (whatever width you like). 
  • Trim panel. 
  • Pop Santa over where the area the "ribbon" crosses on the bow.
  • Attach to the card base using a foam tape layer.

For the Snowman, the only unique difference here is that I used the inside earpiece of the deer antler die-cut to create a nose for "Frosty".

To the background, I used the lined stamp to stamp out the line on a green piece of cardstock using the Green Apple Mini Reactive Ink

For the Reindeer Card, I stamped the background again with the Dots stamp with Versmark Ink and added the Perfect Pearls over top. For the "ribbon" I used silver glitter cardstock.

To the nose, I added some Glossy Accents and then sprinkled Fine Glitter over the top while it was still wet. The antlers also have a layer of glitter using the Sparkle Clear Lacquer Pen.

And finally last Elf Card. The difference here is in the background as I used both stamps and two different colors.

Added details include gold and silver gelly pen details, and white gem stickers to the points on the hat.
