An Inky So Grateful Card w/ Concord & 9th

Hi Everyone! I saw the fun challenge going on at the Where Creativity Meets challenge blog and wanted to play along. This month is all about ink, traditional, stamp pad, ink! Here's what I cam up with.


I used the big circle stamp from the Concord and 9th Lets Chat stamp set to create an inked background using distress inks, and then stamped and embossed my sentiment from their Lots of Blogs stamp set. To finish I added a little bling and mounted onto a piece of colored cardstock.

a2z scrapbooking | Snowflakes & Holly with Hero Arts

Hi Everyone! I'm on the a2z scrapbooking blog today with this fun projects from the new Hero Arts holiday release!


 
 I started but cutting the Hero Arts Snowflake Confetti die from Neenah solar white cardstock, and trimming it down by 1/8" on all sides. I wanted some blue wintry contrast, so I mounted it on some blue bazzil cardstock.

 Next I stamped two of each stamp from the Hero Arts Color Layering Holly stamp set. For the leaves, I stamped the first layer in Hero Arts Green Hills ink, the second in Lime Green, and the last layer in Cup of Joe. I cut all the images out using my Brother Scan N Cut, but you can also get the coordinating dies.

 To finish the card I got everything set up where I wanted it, and used Press N Seal to hold it all in place while I slowly adhered each piece, more on this technique from Laurie Willison / Jennifer McGuire on her blog here. After everything was assembled, I stamped my sentiment in Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and embellished with some sequins, and the confetti from the snowflake die.

a2z Scrapbooking | Hero Arts I'm a Puffer for You

Hero Arts Puffer to You 
 How cute are puffer fish? They're up there with sea horses on my favorite fish list, all though I don't think I've ever seen a puffed puffer, have you?

 I used the new Hero Arts I'm a Puffer for You stamp set to create a a bright and cheery underwater scene. You could totally use a rainbow of non-traditional bright / neon colors for the fish, but I loved the look of the orange yellow so much I went with it for all of them. After I stamped and colored all the puffers where I wanted them I arranged a semi-random pattern of waves and bubbles, before stamping and heat embossing my sentiment on top. To finish I splashed some wink of stella droplets over the whole thing for a glimmering water look. A full list of supplies used can be found below.
