Cris here, and today I bring you a couple of cards.
When I saw the name of our current challenge, I just wanted to play along. But I have to say that I got a bit sidetracked.
You already know how much I love using my Silhouette, and THIS cut file from Hero Arts was calling me. I had to use it!!!!
So I die cut it out of white cardstock and colored it using my distress inks. The heart and sentiments are from a gorgeous set (The Write Stuff: Love Story) from our collaboration this month, the amazing Winnie & Walter!
And I have another card for you. I like camera stamps, so the one from The Write Stuff: Picture Perfect, from Winnie & Walter had to be inked!
The sentiment is from the set You Make Me Smile, from Hero Arts 😉
For the background I used some of the words and simbols from the same Winnie & Walter set. They are super cute!
As you can see, I didn’t really follow the challenge, but I wanted to play with the letters die cut, and with those mini words from the camera set 😉
But you can still play along and win a gift certificate for the amazing Simon Says Stamp!
Thanks for stopping by!
Hello everyone! It’s Teresa here today with my solo post for September. I can’t believe Summer is already over and another school year has begun. This week is super busy for me at home and at school because my mom is undergoing a major surgery and I will have to be her primary caregiver until she recovers, since I’m the oldest in the house.
With the new school year I know some of you who have young children will also feel overwhelmed and anxious, because this is when they tend to have temper tantrums! For some of you, it may mean a new schedule to follow as your school-day routine needs some adjustments. All these worries and stress can leave us frustrated, or unmotivated to do other things such as crafting. I am definitely feeling the lows in my crafting recently and wanted to share how I got through it with you all! What helped me the most was talking to one of my good friends about what I’m experiencing and let me tell you, it did wonders! We all have our highs and lows and I’m so glad I made the time to sit down and have a good long chat with her. I encourage anyone who is going through good moments or devastating ones, to share those emotions with someone you trust. You will be surprised at the encouragement and support you get. For this, I had the motivation to make these cards today. This month we are featuring Winnie and Walter stamps so be sure to use them if you have some!
And remember that no matter what, there will always be a rainbow after the rain 🙂
I’m here to announce the winners of our August challenges!
thanks to our gorgeous sponsor, as always!
See you again soon
It’s Sarah here and I am so excited to be playing with both Winnie & Walter and Hero Arts products today. If you haven’t already seen we have a great collaboration with W&W this month here at A Blog Named Hero.
I absolutely LOVE Winnie & Walter – their stamps are so fresh and cool. If you haven’t already come across them, definitely check them out!
For my cards today I wanted to focus on using sentiment stamps in different ways than just a straightforward sentiment to finish a card. I wanted to use them as an integral part of the card design and here is what I came up with:
On this card I used the sentiments from Hero Art’s Joy to All Christmas sentiments set to create the background. I really like how that looks! The fabulous Christmas trees are from W&W’s It’s A Wonderful Pennant set – so fun. I used non traditional Christmas colours of aqua, pink and grey and blinged it up with some glitter cardstock and Wink of Stella on the trees.
I hope you like my cards and will look again at your sentiments to think of fun ways you can incorporate them in to your card designs. Now is the perfect time as you can play along with our current challenge – Spell It Out For Me.
