Hey hello, and welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts Handmade for Christmas blog hop. Here’s the list of the amazing artists who are hopping today — I’m so happy and honored to be among them.
Lisa Spangler <<< you are here :)
Now that the bookkeeping is out of the way, on with my cards!
Stamp & Cuts
Today I have two cards to share with you! Both of the cards are made with stamps and matching dies from the Stamp & Cuts collection.
The dies and stamps come packaged together and there are so many great designs to chose from! Here you can see the ones that I used:
Now, how about a closer look at the cards? :)
Let It Snow
The snowflake card uses the Let It Snow Stamp & Cuts set. I started off by stamping a blizzard of snowflakes with tide pool ink on a pool notecard.
Then I cut two windows out of the front, stamped two more snowflakes, cut them out, and adhered them behind the windows. I added one more snowflake to the front and that was that!
I also used a pool notecard for the tree card, only this time I reverse folded it so that the pool part was on the inside.
Next I die cut some trees out of the front of the card, then stamped more trees, cut them out, and layered them over top.
So cool, right?
Hero Arts will be giving away one GRAND PRIZE that includes an assortment of stamps, inks, stencils and dies valued at over $75. Two $10 Hero Arts Online Store gift cards will also be awarded. The three prize winners will be randomly selected from all comments received on the participating designers’ blogs, so the more comments they leave along the hop, the better their odds of winning. The giveaways will close at 11:59pm PST on Thursday, Oct 2, with the winners announced on the Hero Arts blog on Friday, Oct 3.
Keep on Hopping
