Crafty Cards

Isn’t this swap with Hero Arts fun?  I know I’m really enjoying all of the creativity using Hero Arts & May Arts together!!!

I have several cards that I’ve made with my Hero Arts goodies!  First up – ‘Warmest wishes’

I stamped the medium snowflake from 'Enjoy the Seasons' with versamark onto shimmer cardstock  & heat embossed with white powder.  I punched it out & painted it with some radiant pearls.  I created the medallion look with May Arts silk ribbon (sk01) , layered on white crepe paper & glittered the edge.  I then stamped the large snowflake on the shimmer cardstock &heat embossed with clear powder.  I border punched the top & layered it onto some patterned paper (my mind’s eye).  I layered the silver cording (ss31)  from May Arts over the white silk.  I stamped the sentiment with versafine sepia.  I layered all my pieces onto my card base.

The second card I did put most of the stamps from 'Holiday Sayings' to work.

I inked them up in place on their sheet, taking the ‘joy’ stamp out.  I stamped that on my cardstock, then stamped the ‘joy’ first with versamark, then with a glue pad & poured some Martha Stewart red glitter over the top.  I cut my panel to size, then added the very glitzy May Arts ribbon (377-38-14 metallic velvet)  to the top & bottom, and attached to my cardbase.

The next card also uses the 'Enjoy the Seasons' stamps, as well as the 'Holiday Sayings' stamps.


First  I embossed a panel with spellbinders label nestabilities.  I stamped the medium snowflake into the center of the panel & heat embossed with white powder.  I stamped my sentiment below in red, then tied this very pretty May Arts striped ribbon (wb14) around the card base.  I love the simplicity of this one- and the ribbon ties it all together perfectly!



On the next card I put those snowflakes & sentiments to work again!

I stamped the snowflakes on cream cardstock with aqua ink.  The sentiment was stamped in red, and some Hero Hues gems were added to up the bling!  That gorgeous May Arts ribbon (QK39)  really ups the wow factor on this card!

Last up is a rather clean and simple card using 'Magic of Christmas' stamps.


I stamped the large ornament on red cardstock and vellum & heat embossed both with silver powder.  I then cut them both out, using the vellum for the center overlay.  I added some white prismacolor pencil to the ornament also.  I used a small punch on the ‘hanger’ and threaded white May Arts silk ribbon (sk01) through & tied a little bow.  The branch was stamped in black on the cardbase & the ornament added with pop-up dots.  The sentiment was stamped in the lower corner & a prisma fine tip marker was used to draw the frame.


That’s it for me today – I hope you enjoyed seeing these great products used together!!!
