4 Cards from Hero Arts June Kit

Hi Y'all! 

After spending a few weeks out of town I finally got the chance to create with the June Hero Arts Card Kit. This kit is my favorite kit from Hero Arts. I loved the colors, size and variety of the stamps.

I created four cards using this kit, using glitter, embossing and also acetate that I embossed on. So much fun creating these cards. I hope you enjoy!

Have a great day!



I created beautiful backgrounds using rubber bands that my son had laying around the house wrapped around a Lawn Fawn Acrylic block. They were so easy and fun. There are so many possibilities for using rubber bands.

Check out the video to see how this easy, beautiful card came together. Supplies listed below. .

MFT Camp Create Day 5 Glitzy Glitter

This is the final day of MFT Camp Create. It has been a lot of fun creating using different styles and themes. I have also learned new techniques along the way from the video's on the MFT Blog

For the last day Glitzy Glitter I decided to create  a simple card using the MFT Big Hugs Die and MFT Large Desert Bouquet along with Elizabeth Craft Designs Turquoise Glitter and Ranger Gold Embossing Powder.

First, I stamped three of the flowers from the stamp set with Versamark embossing ink after using my EK Success Powder Tool to keep the embossing powder only on the image that I want to emboss. 

Second, I adhered my panel, which is Neenah 80 lb to an A2 card base. The base I used in the video is Neenah 110 lb, however after the video I decided that I wanted the base to be black so I used Lawn Fawn Black Licorice Cardstock cut to A2 size for the final card.

To create the glitter letters I adhered three rows of 1" Scor Tape to the bottom of a piece of Neenah 80 lb. Once the three rows…

Texture Shaker Card Using Bo Bunny Glitter Paste


Every Monday Simon Says Stamp has a blog challenge, this weeks challenge is texture. I had purchased Bo Bunny Orange Citrus and Sugar Glitter Paste a few months ago. I created a background using the orange citrus and a stencil. When I saw the challenge I decided it was time to make a card with it. (Any excuse to make a card 😃)

This paste is so much fun to work with. It goes on smooth and after it dries it does not flake like some glitter paste tend to. The sugar paste is fun because you can add any color ink to it and create your own custom color. I have attached a video using the paste below.
I decided to make a shaker card using the My Favorite Things Shaker Flower Die-Namics along with the MFT Circle Shaker Pouches. The pouches make creating a shaker card so easy. MFT designs them so they fit with their circle dies and shaker die-namics. After cutting the flower out of Hero Arts Cerulean card stock.  I coated the flower with the Bo Bunny sugar glitter paste using a craft spon…

Graduation Thank You Cards

Hello Y'all!
Last Saturday my middle child graduated from high school. I can't believe I only have one left to go. Time truly does fly! My son was blessed with gifts and cards from many family and friends which equates to Momma's reason to make cards. Yeah! His school colors are yellow and blue. I started by creating the background using Lawn Fawns Hats off to You stamp set. The graduation cap was the perfect size. I created some backgrounds using Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80 lb card stock. Heat embossing with yellow Ranger embossing powder. Next, I adhered the background to Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110 card stock cut to A2 size.

I chose to use the All About You dies from the Concord & 9th May release. Love this release! At the time of this post they still have the complete sets available here  to purchase. The June release is fabulous also. I will definitely have several post using this release.
Back to this card.. the "You"die from the set cuts …

Father's Day Card for My WVU Fan Daddy

Happy Sunday! 

Although I live in Texas and my father now lives in Kansas we are originally from West Virginia. We are all forever blue and gold Mountaineers. My father is a huge fan so the idea of creating a WVU Father's Day card for him sounded like so much fun! I ordered an adorable stamp set and die from Technique Tuesday. If you haven't checked out this company you should! They are awesome! They have so many great "out of the box" stamp sets and dies. I will include a link to their site at the bottom of this post. For this card I used the Mister Man stamp set from TT and the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy

I began by stamping several ties out in Lawn Fawn Blue Jay ink. After coloring the ties with Copics B26 and B28 I stamped the WVU letters on each tie in Versamark ink with my Misti  so I could heat emboss the letters using Ranger yellow embossing powder. I am a lazy crafter. I will always spend the extra money to buy coordinating dies so I do not…
