Jump Start The Holidays with Hero Arts

Hi.. Friends.. Welcome to my blog..     
       Today we are hopping to celebrate all things fall and winter - and to rev up your holiday card making motors! We are also joining Lea Lawsom during her month-long Crafty Comeback Party. Lea is an amazing designer, and we are thrilled to support her! Tune into her blog everyday this month - she began the party on October 7, and there have been many beautiful cards and fabulous giveaways along the way!

Prize - We will be giving away a $25 gift certificate, randomly chosen from all of the comments left at every stop along the bloghop. To enter, leave a comment on any of the blogs by Friday November 10 at 11:59 pst and the winner will be announced on Lea Lawson's blog on Sunday, November 12.

Now coming to my cards for the hop

  • I placed stencil on a white panel and applied distress oxide inks. Left it to dry.
  • Then placed the stencil again but offsetting a little, then applied versamark ink and clear heat embossed.
  • Then I applied grey distress oxide ink on top of this.
  • Trimmed the panel a little and foam mounted it on the top folding card base.
  • I stamped sentiment and and trimmed one side.
  • Added few strands of copper embroidery floss and foam mounted sentiment.
  • Added few enamel accents in copper colour.


Here you can make out the shine of clear heat embossing.



  • Its a very simple card.
  • I used another Hero arts stencil and various distress oxide inks.
  • I shifted the stencil halfway before applying next colour.
  • Then i trimmed the strip in 2 and foam mounted on top folding card base.
  • Stamped sentiment in black and fussy cut only bottom of it and foam mounted it too.
  • Added few accents in copper to embellish the card.

Faux water colouring - Card#4

Hi.. Friends..

Here i am with The ton stamp again. Previously I had created 3 cards (Card 1 , Card 2 and Card 3 ) with the same stamp set so its continuation of that series (sort of).

I love effect of water colouring but i never achieve it. So i find ways to get it. Here I stamped my image layers on a water colour paper with distress inks, then Spitz  water with mini mister few times and then let water to do its job.

Just For You

Hi.. Friends..
Thank you visiting, this month at A Blog Named Hero we are collaborating with Chibitronics, if you are new to this company then let me tell you something about the company, they make cool adhesive LED lights which we can use in paper crafting. They offer the starter kit too which includes a book with detailed instructions.
This month at A Blog Named Hero the challenge theme is Interactive, so make any interactive card like shaker card, slider card, bendy card etc,. Check out the inspiration of Dt here Part 1 and Part 2


Now coming to my card. I was so excited to make a card with Chibitronics LED lights and at the same time I was scared alot as I never wanted to use up the lights batteries in trail and errors ;) .

Then I felt like keeping the design simple so that I can make full justice to LED.

  • I die cut a rectangle white piece and used heart die on the same panel, I then die cut another smaller heart from the heart die cut. I used same heart dies to cut a red card stock. 
  • I glued a vellum piece on the back of rectangle piece and then adhered smaller heart shape on the front. 


  • This is how I wanted to place lights along with battery house.



  • Then I taped down copper tape, I cut it into half so that I have enough room for 2 tapes. This is how circuit on my card looks.



    • Now to hide the tape showing through vellum I glued red Heart shape and glued smaller heart on the back of white heart shape.
    • This is back side of the card front. I did this so that it aligns perfectly.


    • This is the card base with red outline heart shape glued. I went over board with foam tape .




    • Card base and card front. I had stamped sentiment from Hero Arts, Just For You.




    • At last my card





    • This is how it looks, I really wanted red to glow up like this.



    Hope you liked it. Don't forget to enter your card in this month's challenge.
