Hero Arts Merry Christmas

** 12/6/17 Winner at Word Art Wednesday! **

Hi everyone! Hope those of you in the States had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Today is my post day on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and I’m happy to share a DT inspiration project using the Hero Arts A Natural Holiday Digital Kit, and what an amazing array of digital images! OMG, love this kit! I also used the Hero Arts Christmas Messages stamp set for the sentiment inside. Yep, I created another Christmas card… thought I was done last week, but I still have a few more planned! I LOVE this time of year!

I started with the tree background from the A Natural Holiday Digital Kit which I resized and recolored to light gray. I overlaid the deer, cardinal and sentiment (more images from the kit), resizing and recoloring each as I added them. I trimmed the panel and layered it on black cardstock, then adhered it to the card base.

I stamped a sentiment from the Christmas Messages stamp set on a white panel layered on black cardstock. Loving how this turned out, and it was quick and easy!

Hero Arts Merry Christmas

Hi everyone! Happy Thursday – hope you’re having a great week! I’m posting on the a2z Scrapbooking blog today and I’m happy to share a DT inspiration project using the amazing Hero Arts Holiday Ornaments Stamp & Cut and the Hero Arts Christmas Messages stamp set! I created another Christmas card for my growing pile, lol! I really love this time of year!

I cut some green glitter paper with a stitched rectangle die for the background and adhered it on some white fun foam. The gold border on the bottom is the negative space leftover from a scalloped border that I plan to use on another project. I thought the negative space yielded some cool interest.

I stamped the ornament from the Hero Arts Holiday Ornaments Stamp & Cut set, embossed it in gold and cut it with the coordinating die. I used a red artist pitt pen to color in the open areas. I stamped the mistletoe and bow (also from the Holiday Ornaments Stamp & Cut set) on white cardstock and cut them with the coordinating dies. Finally, I stamped the sentiment (another stamp from the Holiday Ornaments Stamp & Cut set) on white cardstock, embossed it in gold and cut it with a fishtail sentiment strip die. I attached the ornament with gold cord, adhered the rest of the elements to the background, and then attached the background to the card base.

For the inside, I stamped a simple greeting from the Hero Arts Christmas Messages stamp set on a layered panel.
