A2z Scrapbooking - Fall is coming


Hi Everyone,

 this post today is for A2zScrapbooking - an online store for Hero Arts products with the main mission of bringing great deals on scrapbooking supplies since 2001 while supporting worthwhile causes in the autoimmune disease area.

As we are into October now I thought a fall themed card is in order.....



I love this new stamp set by Hero Arts, called Color Layering Fall Trees (Cl886). It offers so many options. 


I took the little tree and stamped it repeatedly to make one big tree.  Smoothed the tree out with colored pencil. Then I inked up various leaf stamps in different distress inks, spritzed them with various amounts of water and stamped. Quick and easy and I love the effect!
Lastly I added some watercolor to make the ground and the sentiment. Die cut it with a stitched frame die an mounted it onto colored card stock.



I hope you will get a chance to join our monthly challenge - its all about fall.  Remember - Hero Arts Products are required.  This challenge runs though the end of the month. You have a chance to win a $25 gift card to the a2z Scrapbooking Store.

You are a genius. I hav, and love, this set but it never occured to me to make a grand old tree from it. Honestly, you can't even tell that the stamp didn't come that way. It's simply gorgeous. I'm in awe of your skills.

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
