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!
Ilda 💙

Does Some Bunny Need a Hug Card - Guest Designer for Whimsy Stamps



Hello there, today I have the pleasure of guest designing for Whimsy Stamps.
As soon as I saw this cute little Hugs Bunny set, I just knew I had to add it to my collection. I find hugs always make things better, especially when it comes to my kids. But, many times even adults need a hug too, especially when times are tough or someone just had a rough day. I'm pretty sure this set is going to be very loved.

Does Some Bunny Need a Hug Card - Guest Designer for Whimsy Stamps by ilovedoingallthingscrafty

To make this card, I started by stamping out the bear and bunny image on a piece of watercolor paper, using Blackout ink. I then masked the images and stamped out one of the wreaths from the Farm House Wreath set. Then I colored the images in using Tombow Dual Brush markers and blended the colors out with a water brush. The sentiment was stamped out using a white pigment ink on black cardstock, and then I heat set with white embossing powder. Finished the card by adhering the panel to an A2 top folding card and then added some sequins, Wink of Stella sparkle and glossy accents as a finishing touch.

Tombow Pens Used: 158, 177, 225, 772, 800, 942, 990, 992, N15

Here is a close up of this adorable embrace 💓

I love how simple and sweet this card turned out and hope you did too. One of the hardest kinds of cards I find to make are sympathy cards, yet I think a card think this would be perfect just by changing out the sentiment. Thanks so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate it. For more inspiration using Whimsy Stamps please visit their Blog.

Happy Crafting  Everyone,
and since today Monday and usually the hardest day to get through, I'm sending HUGS to all 😊

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card


Today was a sad day for me...
I said my goodbye to a long time friend, colleague and mentor. I had worked with Jan for almost 20 years. She was super smart, so funny and sarcastic, beautiful, and one the best Nurses I've ever worked with. She was for a very long time our Charge Nurse and go to person for all our questions and always someone I looked up to and admired.  When I first started at the hospital one day at lunch, I remember a comment Jan made to me. She said that I looked like I was just a kid and that I could be her daughter, (she probably would of had to have me at 16, lol) but from that point on she became my work mom. Today was her celebration of life and though she left us too soon, she had a beautiful one. I will miss her terribly as we all will at work 😪 

So on to today's card...
As sad as the situation is, I always like to look for the beauty in things, and as I made this card I thought of Jan. I think Jan would of loved this card and hopefully her family will too.

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card

The card was actually quite simple to put together. I began by stamping out the background with versamark ink and then added some Raven embossing powder and heat set it, then die cut my panel.
Next, I cut out the prayers word die 4 times. To the top prayer die I stamped the coordinating stamp on top again using versamark ink and this time used gold embossing powder and heat set it. I then stacked and glued 3 of the word dies together. Finally I cut out the velum layer, stamped and heat set the images and then glued the prayers in place. Right behind where I had glued the prayers stacked dies, I then glued the last die cut behind the vellum. This created a larger surface area to adhere the vellum layer to the front panel and it also lifted the vellum off the card ever so slightly.

Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card

To the inside, I just finished the card with this simple sentiment.


Hope this card Sending Hugs and Prayers Sympathy Card has inspired you today.
Goodbye Jan 💔
