Hi Everyone! So I return today bringing you another digital set from Hero Arts called Kiddie Conveyance, super cute set. When viewing this set to buy, I originally thought what an adorable set for a little boy and then realised that there was a cute little school bus in the set and I thought I could make a set of cards that could be given to a teacher using the bus and a few other products.
So downloading the little bus onto my Word page and resizing it to fit onto my card, I copied and pasted it a few times so that several could be printed out on the card stock, once printed I cut 3 of the buses out and set aside. Next, cutting 3 lots of Kraft card stock to form cards I inked up the Hero Arts, Graph Background stamp with Colorbox Ink, Frost White and stamped each card front and set aside to dry. Taking the Ledger stamp from Hero Arts I inked it up with the Hero Arts, Soft Sand and stamped it 3 times onto white card stock, I cut each of the ledger paper to size and punched along the top of each using the Ek Success, Binding border punch and added a light dusting of Ranger, Distress Ink, Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy. Setting the ledger paper aside, I took another 3 scrap pieces of white card stock and stamped 3 sentiments from the Hero Arts, Everyday Sayings and Thank You Sayings stamp sets and stamping around each sentiment using the Hero Arts, Write Your Message, I also stamped 3 times onto white card stock using the ruler from the Hero Arts, Sew Stylish, once the rulers were stamped I took Ranger, Distress Ink, Broken China, Barn Door and Shabby Shutters and coloured in each ruler. I cut each of the stamped images out and assembled each of the cards.
Here is a view of each individual cards:
A cute and quick set for a teacher, incorporating the world of digital images along with my favourite stamping techniques.
Here is what I used to create the cards, you can purchase most of the products HERE.
So I have also a video for you to view, just some goodies that have arrived in the mail:
Hope that this set gives you some ideas for some teacher presents, I really enjoyed making these.
So have a great day and I will catch you all tomorrow.
Hi Everyone! So a very sad day today, today is the last day of my challenge with Jennifer, I have enjoyed my time with her immensely and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for being a truly great friend and a wonderful partner to do a fun challenge with, so thank you Jennifer.
For our last day, Jennifer and I decided to use a different stamp and this one happens to be a digital one, we have used the Hero Arts, Oh Boy!
I decided to place the car (beetle) and the saying It’s a Boy onto my Word page and resize to fit onto my card, I printed it out onto white card stock, and then printed the car again onto Hero Arts, Layering Paper, Punch and Powder. I cut the various sections of the car out and adhered the white card stock to the window section of the car, I added Glossy Accents to make them look like windows. With the sentiment I stamped a message bubble from the Hero Arts, Write a Message around the sentiment and cut this out. Taking Kraft card stock to form a card, I then stamped the Hero Arts, Cling Dot Background stamp that was inked with Colorbox Ink, Frost White over the front of the card. I attached the car and the sentiment bubble to the card using foam dimensionals and to add a little fun to the car I added black buttons to form the tyres and stamped the words Beep, Beep.
Here is another view of the card showing the windows of the car:
There is so many things that you can do with digital designs, and it is another way to have fun stamping, I love to stamp and I felt that there was a way that I could incorporate both to form a fun, sweet card for a little boy.
Here are the products that were used to create the card:
So there you have it, a fun week for you all and I do hope that you have enjoyed the week with us both, I wanted to say thank you so much to everyone for visiting and leaving such wonderful comments, I feel that Jennifer and I will return again to do another fun challenge in the near future.
Now I am heading to Jennifer’s blog to see what fantastic creation she has made.
Hugs to you all, especially to you Jennifer.
Hi Everyone! Just wanted to let you all know that Jennifer and I have postponed the last challenge day until tomorrow at present. Unfortunately, Jennifer is sick and needs to rest, poor thing, so we will be back hopefully tomorrow. Maybe, you could drop by her blog and send some well wishes to her.
Feel better Jennifer, my sweet friend!
So with the night off I was going to share a video with you tonight but 2mins away from finishing uploading to Youtube and it failed, so frustrating and really could say a few choice words right now. I am so tired and don’t have the energy to upload for another 3hrs, so I will try again tomorrow and upload.
Hugs to you all and sorry that there is nothing to view tonight.
Hi Everyone! Jennifer and I are back with Day 6 and sadly tomorrow will be the end of our week challenge, but we hope to bring some more fun in the future. But it is not all over yet so to get Day 6 under way we are using the Hero Arts stamp, Garden Bouquet. I wanted to create a card that had simplicity but also was simple to create.
To produce this card, I used Kraft card stock as the card and taking the Hero Arts, Thank You Sayings stamp set, I left all the sentiments on the clear plastic sheet and inked it up with Colorbox Ink, Frost White and placed the Kraft card stock over the stamps to form a background image. I then cut a circle out of the collection from My Minds Eye, Quite Contrary and stamped the Garden Bouquet in black, I adhered the circle to the front of the card using foam dimensionals. Next, I cut a tag using some white card stock and stamped a sentiment form the Hero Arts, All Occasion Messages stamp set and adhered this also to the card using more foam dimensionals. Lastly, I added some green rhinestones to match.
So there you have it, a very quick card to produce, but one which I hope has an impact.
Here are the products used to create this card:
I just wanted to add a little note that Jennifer will be posting her card for the challenge a little later, so be sure to check back in at her blog to find what wonderful creation she has made for Day 6 of our challenge.
So we will be back tomorrow to bring you the final day, I am feeling sad about this already, but excited yet again to see what Jennifer has created and also your wonderful comments.
Hi All! So Day 5 of the challenge with Jennifer and myself is here and we are bringing you a creation using the wonderful Hero Arts stamp, Dogwood.
I love the botanical look of stamps so when I was able to have this stamp in my hot hands I was delighted to be able to create cards with it. I was also excited when Jennifer and I decided to use it for this challenge.
So taking this wonderful Dogwood stamp I stamped it twice onto white card stock and coloured one of the images in using my Copics and with the other image I only coloured the flowers. I cut each of the images out that were coloured and adhered the flowers on top of the other flowers with some foam dimensionals, I added some Glossy Accents to the centre of the flowers and set this aside to dry whilst I worked on the rest of the card. I took more white card stock and using the Hero Arts, Old Letter Writing stamp inked up with Antique Linen, Distress Ink, I stamped the entire white card stock. I distressed the edges of the card stock and inked over the edges using Brushed Corduroy, Distress Ink, I then attached the flower to the card stock using more foam dimensionals, adding a sentiment from the Hero Arts, Everyday Sayings stamp set under the flower and set this aside. I took pink card stock that was slightly larger then the white and distressed the edges of this and adhered each of the card stocks together. Using Kraft card stock to form the card, I added, yes you guessed it..LOL, white gel pen dots around the edge of the card and adhered the two pieces of card stocks to the card front. Lastly, I added some pink rhinestones to match and dusted the edges of the Kraft card stock with Colorbox Ink, Frost White to soften the card.
Here is another view of the card:
A stamp to have in ones collection as it will always be one of those classic stamps that will never age with time.
Here are the products used to create this card:
So I am heading to Jennifer’s blog anyone want to join me?? Cannot wait to see her wonderful creation.
Looking forward to bringing you another challenge creation tomorrow.
Hi Everyone! So it is Day 4 with Jennifer and what fun week we are having so far, I am so enjoying seeing what she has created with the same stamp and to see all your wonderful comments, this is certainly one way to put a smile on ones face.
So today we create a card using the Hero Arts, Cuckoo stamp set, I love this unique set, it is such a versatile set that could be used to create female or male cards and I think that is value for money.
So you will find today that I am on a roll with using paper piecing and also using the white gel pen…LOL, I really did not do this on purpose it just seem to be the things that I happen to grab for and well before I knew it here was a card that was similar to what I had created before, but I gotta say I love how soft and pretty it turned out.
I took the Basic Grey, Cappella 6 x 6 paper pad and using 4 different patterned papers, I stamped the large cuckoo clock onto each paper, I cut each section out that I wished to use and I adhered each section together and set aside. Next, taking some cream card stock to form a card, and the Hero Arts, Flourish background stamp, I inked it up with some Hero Arts, Soft Sand ink and stamped over the front of the card. I added dots using my white gel pen and taking the cuckoo stamp once again, I stamped it onto the front of the card. I then took the paper pieced clock and attached it to the clock that was stamped onto the card using foam dimensionals. Next, taking some white card stock I cut a piece that fit across the card and stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set, I adhered a piece of soft pink card stock that had been punched with the Ek Success, Scalloped Scallop border punch to the white card stock and then adhered this to the card.
Here is another view of the card:

So I hope that you enjoy the card and that you will forgive me for using the same background…LOL.
