July My Monthly Hero Card

Hero Arts July My Monthly Hero Club sets are Awesome!!  If you are like me and adore flowers, this one is for you.  I paired this set with the Avery Elle's Horizontal Stripes Die.  It just came Saturday and I couldn't wait to use it.

The Flowers and containers were stamped with Versafine Black ink  on Canson Multimedia paper.  Coloring with Tombow markers on this paper is fabulous!  It was very easy to blend.  Topped the flowers with Wink of Stella and added Glossy Accents on the butterfly.   The sentiment was stamped by curving the the stamp on a block and using Wilted Violet Distress Oxide ink then die cut with a Spellbinders banner die.

This card's sentiment was stamped and embossed, then cut with a punch.  Also both purple pieces were raised with pop dots.

Have a great day and keep on crafting.

Sympathy Cards with New Technique

First of all, I love watching new technique videos on Youtube.  Jennifer McGuire is my favorite and today I'm showing you my take on her technique.  The link to her video is here.  I highly recommend visiting her site, you could spend days watching all her crafty goodness!

So, I love making cards, but it's very sad when the reason is loss.  A family member passed and a very good friend lost her husband, both were very unexpected.  Instead of struggling to design a card, I poured my love for these people into making the cards.

Here's my card, I made two of these...

The stamps and dies are a flower building set from Altenew called Camillia.  The prayer sentiment is from Hero Arts called Prayers Stamp and Cut.  I chose to use the new Distress Oxide Ink Wilted Violets for the flower and three different colors of green from my stash.

Keep on crafting and have a great day.
