Hero Arts...dreaming of sunsets on the lake


Hello! Today I am sharing a card I made using the Hero Arts July 2019 kit. I knew I had to have this kit the minute I saw the first “sneak peek!”  I have spent many summers enjoying gorgeous sunsets over the water in the UP of Michigan. That is what I had in mind when making this card. My favorite sunsets up North are the skies that turn the water gold and orange.
I used Distress Oxide inks to create the sky and water on this card. I used Squeezed Lemonade, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral. The trees were stamped using the Lime green and Forest ink cubes that came in the kit. My card base is A2 sized, and the stamped panel measures 5.25” x 4”.
Slowly but surely starting to get into a regular “stamping” routine again. It is so good for my soul and I have missed creating on a regular basis. 😊

Banana Split Birthday!

Hello! Today I have a card to share using some stamps and dies from The Stamps of Life. I have had this set in my collection for quite awhile, and have finally found some time to stamp with it. I colored my image with Copic markers and popped it out with some foam dots. Added a paper eyelet border with a baker’s twine bow.
Here is a close-up of the glitter glue I added to the toppings. The perfect finishing touch and just what this card needed.

Heartfelt Creations June Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to the Heartfelt Creations June blog hop. This month I used the Classic Rose collection to create my card. I stamped my roses onto some of the dark red patterned paper from this collection and used the coordinating dies to cut. My leaves are stamped in black onto white cardstock and then sponged with Colorbox Olive chalk ink and then cut with coordinating die. I shaped my flowers and then layered them onto some of the patterned paper. My sentiment actually comes from the Blazing Poppy collection and is matted in black cardstock.

Heartfelt Creations August Blog Hop






This week I made a mini album using the Sugar Hollow paper pad.  I seriously LOVE the paper collections from Heartfelt Creations. They are packed full of everything you need to make beautiful projects. Even when I do a big project, I still have a ton of paper left over. I used a tutorial for this mini album that I bought many years ago, however, there a lot of free mini album tutorials out there on You Tube and on blogs.  I added  plenty of tucks, pockets, flaps and tags to add your photos or journaling.

This mini album is for sale in my Etsy shop HERE.

The hop starts at 8AM EDT on Friday, 31st, 2018 and closes Monday, September 3, 2018 at 11.59PM EDT. The winner will be announced on the Heartfelt Creations blog and on Facebook on Wednesday September 5th, 2018.

My card for this month's hop, features stamps, papers and dies from the Peacock Paisley collection. I stamped my peacock image in Bermuda Bay ink by Stampin' Up onto white cardstock, and cut with the matching die. I layered the gorgeous papers from this collection and popped my die cut peacock image with foam dots. I added some gems to the centers of the flowers and layered a sentiment from the paper collection on top.
I love to color images, but it takes me quite a long time! I love being able to use an intricate image stamped in one color on white, layered with rich colored papers. You can finish with a beautiful card in mnutes. :)

Thanks for stopping by! You won't want to miss the other creations on the hop this month. Below you will find the hop participants and links to their blogs.

December Daily 2017: Day 1

Hello! Can you believe it is officially December? I was excited to start my December Daily album. This year I am doing my album "junk journal" style. For the first page I have used papers and ephemera from Tim Holtz Christmas collection. I added a tea stained doily and some zig-zag stitching. The numbers are from the Heidi Swapp Believe collection.
I will share my cover on another day, but it is made from a package I recieved in the mail. I will bind it all when I am done with the pages. This allows me to more easily sew and stamp on the pages as I go.
If you are doing a December Daily type album I would love to see pics! Share a link in the comments if you would like and I will leave you some love. :)

Thanks for stopping by,

Emily
