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!

Lovely Layers Rainbow Rose | Valentine's Day Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Lovely Layers, Rose, Rainbow,Valentine's Day, Card,Honey Bee Stamps,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,Ink Blending,Atelier Inks, Inkon3

Hello, my dear friends, and Happy New Year!!!

Yes, this is my first post for 2022 and of course, I had to start off with a Rainbow Rose inspiration๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜

Today's card could be used for any occasion, but I did pair it with a "love you" sentiment from the new Bitty Buzzwords: Be Mine to make it a valentine's Day Card. 

CARD RECIPE


To begin I die cut all the pieces for the Lovely Layers: Roses and then Ink Blended each layer of the petals using Atelier Inks from Inkon3, see thumbnails below.


For the petals, I first used Goddess Green Ink and then went back in with Trinity to darken some of the petals and stems.


I used foam tape to build up the petals of the rose, leaving the center free of foam so that I could add glue to it and pinch it together with reverse tweezers until the glue dried. This gives the rose some fan-like dimension. And, yes this does make the card super bulky. So this would be one card that would have to be hand-delivered or you'd have to put it in a "box of roses". This rose would also look amazing in a frame too! Check out my previous lovely layer frames HERE.

For the background, I used a few of the stencils from the Layered Lace Layering Stencils to add Moonstone Paste and create some glittery borders on the card front.

The "love you" stamp comes from the Bitty Buzzwords: Be Mine set that was stamped on black cardstock using white ink and embossing PWD. It then was die cut using one of the smaller banners from the Sentiment Banner Dies.

To finish this beauty, I added some of my favorite sequins for even more sparkle and shine.

I hope I didn't disappoint you with this rainbow rose creation. I am absolutely in love with it and hope you are too!

Cheers to You Bokeh Card | Honey Bee Stamps

Cheers to You Bokeh Card, Honey Bee Stamps,birthday,New Year's,Ink Blending,Bokeh Background,Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Hello, my friends, and Happy Monday! Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday weekend. Sadly I had to work but was able to enjoy a couple of Christmas Dinners with my friends and family.

As we approach the end of the year and this card reminds me of all the twinkly lights of the season. Today's Bokeh Background Card could be used for so many occasions, a birthday, a retirement, just because, New Year's, really any excuse to celebrate a friend! So let me tell you how this came together.

CARD RECIPE

To create this card I began by blending the background circles using the Polka Dot Background Stencils and various distress oxide inks, see colors listed below. The blending was done on a dark blue textured panel. Once the Polka Dots were done I then went back and added black soot distress oxide ink around the edges to intensify the background.


Next, I die-cut 4 layers of the Cheers Dies and the You Buzzword Dies, 3 layers from black cardstock, and a top Silver Glitter layer. They were then stacked and glued together onto the background layers that were cut from vellum.

To complete the sentiment I stamped out the "to" in white ink using a stamp from the Cheers stamp set.

Finally, I finished off this beauty by adding all the sequin bling!

I hope you love this Cheers to You Bokeh Card as much as I do. Thank you all for the support throughout this past year. Today's post will be my last for 2021. I am definitely in need of a break and will be taking this time to enjoy myself with the family. See you all in 2022! 


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