My Monthly Hero Kit 2/2018 Card #1

I decided to recreate a card I saw on the My Monthly Hero Blog post about this kit.

Would you like to see that card, CLICK HERE.

Except I did not want to quite cut into that beautiful wood grain card stock that was included in the kit so I went threw my embossing folders and found a Stampin Up wood grain folder that also gives a deeper impression versus regular embossing folders.

 I am using a Retired color called Tip Top Taupe.

Cut to the exact card fron 5 1/2 by 4 1/4.

With this embossing folder you only need one cutting plate because its thicker then the traditional folders.
 I am also using some Retired heart framelit dies and my no longer being made Hampton Art Stamp Perfect Tool.

I am just seeing how the sentiment and the leaf stamp will fit inside the heart.
 Using the cordinating Tip Top Taupe ink to stamp.

Which I stamped twice since I was using a stamp positioning tool.

Again using the heart die to line things up this time adding the bird to the leaf stem.
 I just used a small stamp block to stamp the music notes.

I still had to double stamp but it was easy to stamp right over because I can see threw the stamp.
 I am using some 110 pound white card stock as my base and Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere the embossed panel to the card front.


 Choose some enamel dots from my stash.
One of Three finished cards

 Three different shade of enamel dots.

You can see the impression of the embossing folder.
 Close up.

I added dimension with Stampin Up dimensionals.
 Inside of the card, the sentiment is stamped full strength and the bottom images are stamped off once on scratch paper.
Same with the back of the card.
 Front of the envelope.

First Valentine of 2018

Here is a Piggy Valentine I made that would be perfect for a lunch box addition for you little ones.

I got the idea from May May on You Tube. Click Here for the inspiration.

 Take a full sheet of 8 1/2 by 11 inch card stock and cut in half.

Then cut in half again.

You will get four Valentines.
 Score at 2 3/4  inch on the 5 1/2 inch side.
 Flip it over and make a pencil mark at 2 1/8, just a small one.
 Add the paper to your trimmer and line up with the score line and the pencil mark.
 Cut and flip over and do the same on the other side.
 I am using a heart punch for the ears, and the triangle scraps work perfectly to cut out all the ears I need.
 I thought about using an oval for the nose but then I found this scallop oval and knew I wanted that.
 This is a three circle punch I found at Hobby Lobby one day and just love it for ears and eyes.
 I used a scrap Heavy Weight black for the nostriles.

I am using scrap Heavy Weight White for the sentiment.

I cut my stamp and it did not cry, now I can use it the way I want.
 I used Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and only on the edges.

I also rounded with 1/4 inch punch the point.
 A block on top just tell it dries, it does not take long.
Decided to ink the edges with the same ink as the card stock.
 Tombow Mono Liquid Glue and dimensionals to the nose.
Google Eyes, I added the ears to the back.

Stamped the inside too

And the back, and you can see how I glue the ears

Our December Story 2016, Day 23 Extra insert

Alivia saw Santa at the mall and I wanted to do a insert just for that photo.

I am adding a glitter snowfalke using my Fine Tip Glue Pen from Stampin UP.

I then put a candle over it to hold it down while it dries.
 Using some Stampin UP foam dimensionals on the back of a cut out card that I got from a 12X12 American Crafts pad that came from Target.

I wrote my journaling with a Zig pen.
 The green back ground paper is also from a 12X12 Paper pack from Micheal's, their brand called Traditional Holiday.

I am using a circle sticker from a Simple Stories pack to make the corner between the snowflake and the journal card more semitrical.
 I used my We R Memory Keepers type writter to add the dater to a gold journal sticker.
 I attached the journal sticker to a piece of copy paper and before typeing I tested by adding some letters and then adjusting my paper.
I added the date with some foam as well.
 This cute white sparkly wood believe is from the Target $1 spot 2017.

Used Tombow Mono Liquid Glue to adhere that to the picture/paper.
Finished layout

Pink Bird, Prayers card

I was going to enter anouther card challenge but could not think of a new idea so I did a CASE a copy and selective edit card.  I used what I had in my stash to re create a card from Pinterest.

 I started with a Whisper White card stock mat sized 4 by 5 1/4.

I am using the Hero Arts CL866 stamp set and my Hero Arts Stamp Perfect Tool.
 I double stamped each color.

The first Pretty in Pink.

The next layer Sahara Sand.

And the third layer in Soft Suede.
 The eye and beak layer is Versa Fine Black Onyx ink.
 The branch in Chocolate Chip ink.
 I added anouther branch in the top left.
 While my project was still in the Stamping Tool I used a traditional block and stamped two more branches below in the upper left corner.
 The leaves in Lucky Limeade.
 Again useing my stamping block after I stamped the top left one,  it was easier because for the bottom three I only need one leaf so I was able to selectively ink and stamp the leaf I needed.
 I die cut the Hero Arts DC183 in Whisper White card stock as well and inked it halfway in my Pretty in Pink ink pad.

I used a make up sponge to gently dab half the word in the ink pad.
 I soften the middle line by adding more ink with the make up sponge and gently while holding the die cut with one hand adding ink the that middle line.
 I cut a second out and glued them together using a Zig 2 Way Glue pen
I stamped the back with one the stamps in that cordinating set in Chocolate Chip ink.

I also used some scrap foam adhesive to line my main panel.

I made a Pretty in Pink card base.

I used the same glue pen to glue the prayers to the front of the card.

I used Versa Fine Black Onyx ink again to add the sentiment above it.
