Spring Card Camp Day 4 Card 2

Here is the extra card resulting from using the image cut out to form a window on the card from the previous post.  On this card, I used a 3D embossing folder from Sizzix called Tropical Leaves.  It teamed up very well with the Hero Arts kit used on this card.

Take a look:


Spring Card Camp Day 4

Today’s tutorial is on using a window card to create two cards from one stamping session.  This technique requires using a stamp set for which you have matching dies.

I went looking through my “new” drawer, hoping to find something that I hadn’t used yet that would fit the bill.  I found what I was looking for in the My Monthly Hero Kit of December 2019.  I must admit that it wasn’t my favorite kit when it came out but its theme of taking care of the earth (and the people on it) has become nearer and dearer to my heart as this pandemic drags on.

I have to divide this post into two separate posts again, as it is necessary to show both the inside and outside of the first card on this post.  The next post will show the  second card resulting from “saving” the cut-out image from the first card.

Once again, I think these cards turned out well and has had the added benefit of me liking this Monthly Hero Kit more than I thought I did.



What………..not a Christmas Card

Once again I sit here in disbelief that I haven’t done a blogpost since December 8th.  At least it adds to evidence that I feel like I have been in a non-stop tornado for weeks.  It should be slowing down now, but I am gearing up for my trek south for the winter, so it is still a whirlwind for me.

I wanted to make a few cards as samples for Scrapendipity before I left.  It felt good NOT to be making a Christmas Card.  I thought I would make a couple of cards with the add ons from the December Hero Arts Monthly Kit.  The main kit while lovely, would not be on my personal favourites list.  I did like several of the add ons and had a hard time just picking a couple to be sent with my kit.

The one I am showing here is the World Window Fancy Die.  I wanted to make a Valentine’s card that wasn’t too “pretty” or mushy.  To achieve this, I stuck to earthy colours and reined in the bling (ok just a bit).  I really like the outcome.
