Merry Christmas Ornament Card | Hero Arts

Merry Christmas Ornament Card, Hero Arts,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,  Christmas card,Elegant,heat embossing, gold,glitter,

Hello, my sweet crafty friends.

Today I am sharing this beautiful Merry Christmas Ornament Card featuring a few sets from the Hero Arts Awesome Add-Ons that are still available. If you love heat embossing and a simple design this one is perfect for you.

I began by preparing the Pitch Black Cardstock panel by using an anti-static powder duster. I then stamped out the top and bottom using the first layer of the Color Layering Merry Christmas stamp set with Unicorn Pigment Ink. I then used white embossing powder to heat set the first layer. I repeated the previous step twice to get a good white embossed layer for the next step. Next, line up the top detail layer of the stamps, this time inked the stamp with Versamark ink and then heat set it using gold embossing powder.

Cut out the ornament using the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies. Stamp, heat emboss the top of the ornament, and fussy cut it out. Glue it to the top of the die-cut circle "ornament". Pierce a hole through the top to add the gold thread through later.

Stamp out the background panel using Versamark ink, and heat set it using gold embossing powder. Trim the panel. Attach it to another black panel to create a shadow and to tie the colors together. Now pop the ornament in the center of the panels using foam tape. Secure the gold thread behind the panels. Use foam tape to adhere the embossed panel to a gold piece of Glitter Paper Holiday Sparkle cardstock cut to A2 size and then attach it to the card base.

Finish off the card by adding a few gold pearls and a bow to the top of the ornament as a finishing touch. 

I hope you got some inspiration for your Holiday cards today. Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting!

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.

Hope you got some inspiration from today's Chinese New Year Galaxy Card. It makes me think of one of my best friends, who was Chinese that I lost earlier this year to Cancer. Actually, now that I think about it, it was 6 months to the day today 😭 She was the one person I would always wish Happy Chinese New Year too. I really miss her πŸ’™ but I know she is up in the sky (somewhere in the Galaxy maybe) and will receive my message!

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

Snowmie Holiday Cards | Tonic Studios Stamp Club Release Hop

#tonicstudios, #tonicstudiosusa, #tonicstudiosstampclub,Snowmie Holiday Cards, Mini Slimline Cards,Tonic Studios, Stamp Club, Hop, Winter, Holiday, Christmas,Ink Blending, Tags, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Hello Friends, and Happy Friday! 

It is time for another Tonic Stamp Club Release Blog Hop and this time is all about the cutest Snowmies!!! Perfect for the upcoming winter and Holiday Season!

If you have already joined the hop you should have arrived from Iliana's Blog.  I will link the complete hop list and giveaway details near the end of this post. I have 3 projects to share today so let's get started.


Here is a closer look at this month's Snowmie Stamp and Die Bundle. Plus this month you get a FREE coordinating Snowmie Stencil with your purchase!


Both my cards today are Mini Slimline sized 3x6 inches. This first one features the adorable Rainbow-inspired Snowmie Family sending warm Holiday Wishes.
To make this card I began by stamping out the images, coloring them in with Copic markers, and then die-cutting them out with the coordinating dies. The rainbow dotted tree was inspired by my friend Bobbi, who is an amazing colorist and I thought this was a fun and unique way to add color to the tree.

I then blended onto a mini slimline panel Broken China, Mermaid Lagoon, and Prize Ribbon Distress Oxide Inks and then spritzed the background with water and picked up the droplets with a paper towel to lift some of the ink. This just adds to the snowy effect. 

Another thing I did was to create a Snow Bokeh stencil by using 3 circle dies from the Slimline Envelope Creator Die Set, and blended white pigment ink over the top part of the panel. Slightly overlapping the circles to create the bokeh effect. Look closely at the sky part for them they are faint but there for extra detail. 

To the background, I applied a layer of falling snow using Worn Linen Expanding Mousse.

The sentiment was stamped in white pigment ink and embossed in white onto black cardstock. Then the rest was to glue all the elements in place. The snowflakes come from the die set. The really fun thing about these die sets is that they come with so many extra dies to stretch out the possibilities!

My favorite part of carmaking is adding embellishments and finishing details. The crystals on the snowflake centers, the white gel pen details, the glossy accents on the nose and buttons, and the chunky glitter on the tree along the bottom of the card. Yes adding these take a little more time but they are what makes your card stand out!

I am in love with this next rainbow-inspired cutie! What is it about rainbows that just make you happy?! I can't explain it but whatever it is I know it is why I do it! Rainbows bring me joy and it is why it is my favorite color!

This next mini slimline was done exactly the same as the previous card only in a vertical layout. Obviously, the images are different but the techniques were the same. To this sky, I added Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink along the top and I left the bottom white to give it the snow illusion.

This time, rather than using snowflake die-cuts I stamped them in white onto the background.

The bottom sentiment snow hill panel I added was a happy mistake. I actually stamped a different sentiment underneath on the card panel which wasn't the stamp I had wanted to use. So to cover it up I created a hill for the sled to sit on and added the new sentiment instead.

Did you notice the mini slimline envelope I placed under each of the cards? They come with the two pierced plate designs and fit these cards perfectly as they measure 3.5x6.5 inches. These envelopes are part of the new also just released Slimline Envelope Creator Die Set. They also come with a bunch of tag builder dies. So I thought it would be fun to make a bunch of Christmas rainbow gift tags.

If you look closely each tag was either finished using the coordinating Snowmie Stencil or I used the pierced plates from the Slimline Envelope Creator Die Set to add details. I also added the For You and the snowflakes that were die cut using holographic cardstock. Under each colored tag is another white tag with a pierced edging so that you can write who the gift is for.
