The Hero Arts Sparkle Border Set is so fun and versatile and I know I’ll
be using this set for more than just Christmas!
Here’s how I began…
A quick and easy way to color them was to use a sponge dauber and ink!
I used the oval die cut to create a window to place the sweet little image from Lawn Fawn.
die cut with its matching die, and adhered with foam tape.

When do you start making Christmas cards? Do you do them all the same or all different? I think I’m starting to feel a bit panicked since weeks go by so fast. Since it is October already I think I have to really sit down and get to work 🙂
I made today’s card with an amazing new stamp set by Lawn Fawn called Ready, Set, Snow. Lawn Fawn is our collaboration partner this month and this it’s a perfect stamp set for Christmas cards. Super cute and versatile.
I used the super tiny snowflakes and stamped them with Soft Sky and Cornflower inks and them clear embossed a few of the as well. I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts and the village and Santa on a piece of vellum and embossed it with white embossing powder. I added just some colour with pencils and stamped stars. I sponged some blue ink in bottom right corner and then I glued the die cut label on that part.
I like this card because it looks simple at first but there are lots of details to it. I hope you like it too 🙂

It’s beginning of a new month and that means new collaboration. In October we have an amazing partner. The one. The only. The Lawn Fawn. I know. How amazing is that!? We got to play with their new stamps and pattern papers and you can see some really inspiring posts from our design team all month long. Thank you, Lawn Fawn!
I’m starting with and adorable winter scene that I built with new Ready, Set, Snow stamp set. I manipulated the snow line stamp to make snow drifts, added the village in the distance and two adorable snow men in the front. Sentiment is from Hero Arts Sparkle Borders stamp set that I stamped with black ink and brushed some Perfect Pearls over it immediately to make it shine.
I coloured everything out with my Inktense pencils. I just touched a damp paint brush to the tip of my pencils and painted directly to paper. My card base is not watercolour paper so I didn’t do much blending and fiddling with my colours.
My final touches were stamped snowflakes, Liquid Pearls on trees and roofs and some extra snowflakes made with Liquid Pearls and Stickles. I also added two strips of new Let’s Bokeh in the Snow pattern paper to frame my scene and I have my first Holiday card made 🙂
I hope you join us for our collaboration posts in the next few days and get inspired by our amazing design team and Lawn Fawn.
Have a great day!
Gayatri here today with a Christmas card using Hero Arts stamp set.
Here is my card first.
I love the Holiday Petals and Leaves stamp set from Hero Arts. It has a lot of images to use not just for Christmas cards but also to make fall card. Just beautiful images in both solid and outline so you can stamp the solid images using coloured inks and stamp the outline in black and colour them with different medium.
Of course I wanted to colour but I also wanted to combine with solid images. Thinking outside the box, I decided to use a grey cardstock as my base. The grey cardstock is Fog cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I started with black heat embossing the sentiment on the centre of the panel. then white embossing some images and black embossing others around the sentiment. Love the combination of black and white embossed image as well as solid and outline images. To colour the images, I have used distress markers, Festive Berries, Peeled Paint, Pine Needles and Peacock Feather. Then I applied some clear shimmer on the flowers. The subtle contrast of these images against the grey cardstock is beautiful. Something different than the white or kraft base. Hope you like it.
I simply adhered this panel on the red card base. I like the colour red peeking out on the sides and complements the red flowers and berries. Finally I have added sequins from Classic Christmas mix from this month’s collaboration partner Pretty Pink Posh.
Hope I have inspired you to start your Christmas card collection for this year. I have listed all my supplies below for you.
Thanks for stopping by today!
