Jump Start the Holidays with Hero Arts - video and give away

Hi Stampers! Happy Friday!!!

Today we are hopping to celebrate all things fall and winter - and to rev up your holiday cardmaking motors! We are also joining Lea Lawson during her month-long Crafty Comeback Party. Lea is an amazing designer, and we are thrilled to support her! Tune into her blog every day this month - she began the party on October 7, and there have been many beautiful cards and fabulous giveaways along the way!  To make this party extra fun, we invited along the fabulously talented team at A Blog Named Hero! Lots of inspiration on this hop today.
You probably came here from Lea's blog, if not you can go back to the beginning and start over at the Hero Arts blog. Or look at the full list of hoppers on the bottom of this post.

And from here, you will head over to Jana's blog and expect to be wow-ed! 

Now, onto my card and box! I had to use the cutest Color Layering Penguin for my project today. He is irresistible! I used my MISTI to stamp few penguins using the pack of cubes and embossing powder that coordinate with this set. For my last layer I first stamped with black and then over stamped with Versamark and embossed with the sparkle embossing powder. Then die cut all the little penguins and set them aside. For the box I used 6 3/4" x 11" piece of Pool Layering paper and spritzed with the shimmer spray. I scored the 6 3/4" side at 2" and 5" and the 11" side at every 1 3/4" and you'll be left with 1/2" tab to adhere the box together. For the dome I used the Oval infinity dies as template for scoring (watch the video below).  I stamped the hand drawn snowflakes bold prints and embossed with Sparkle embossing powder. Watch the video below to see how this box came to be.

After I put my box together I adhered the penguin, some vellum on the bottom, sequins etc. While I was at it, since I had extra penguins I decided to make a coordinating card, that is shaker card. 





Prize: 
We will be giving away a $25 gift certificate, randomly chosen from all of the comments left at every stop along the blog hop. To enter, leave a comment on any of the blogs by Friday, November 10 at 11:59pst, and the winner will be announced on Lea Lawson's blog the on Sunday, November 12

IO Stamps Challenge : Haunted Greetings

Hi stampers! 
Welcome to another Impression Obsession challenge. This week the challenge is "Haunted Greetings".  I decided to use the Eat Drink Pumpkin die and make a shaker card. I cut the the pumpkin without the outline from black card stock and sprayed with shimmer spray. Once it was dried I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed with White embossing powder. I adhered piece of acetate on the back to cover the die cut and created shaker and filled with sequins. Using foam mounting tape I adhered to my card base. To finish it off I added some googly eyes to the pumpkin!

Make sure you visit the blogs of the rest of the DT for more inspiration!

Hero Arts : I Love You to the Mewn & Back

Hi stampers! 
Happy Saturday! Sorry for the quietness. Work has been crazy and I was working on projects I can't share yet, so you will need to wait a little longer to see those :P 
But for now I have a card using the Hero Arts Mewn and Back set. Who doesn't like space cats? 
For my card I cut a panel of 4" x 5 1/4" from snow paper. Then I die cut the circle on it and stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and Intense black ink. I stamped the images with Intense black ink pad and colored with Copics. 
On separate piece of paper (4"x4" snow paper) I applied directly Navy ink (swiped with the ink pad) leaving the bottom un-inked. Then inked the bottom using the same technique using the Grape Juice ink and kind of blended both colors. While the ink was still wet I stamped the stars with Versamark ink and dried with the heat tool. Then I stamped more stars and embossed with Sparkle embossing powder. I added some dots(stars) using white gel pen, too.
I adhered the inked piece on top of the note card, making sure it's placement was under the circle window that I made earlier. 
I adhered the white panel with the circle window using mounting tape and arranged the images I stamped, colored and cut earlier. Voila!

Winterhaven Stamp Of Approval is live!

Hi everyone!
The Winterhaven stamp of approval is live for the general public. Since last night when it went on sale for the Stamp Nation members who attended t he PJ party, then for those on the wait list, only 30% of the boxes remain in stock. So hurry up! Head over Catherine Pooler's store to get yours!

In meantime here are few more cards I made using the collection!

For my first card I combined Here We Come A- Caroling and Tis the season (the little dots).  I used one of the trees in the set to create my background. I stamped with variety of non traditional ink colors (Aquatini, Melon Ice and It's a Girl), then added the little dots using It's a Boy, Limey Rickey and Party dress inks. For the sentiment, I stamped it with Versamark, then by mistake I embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I stamped it again and embossed with white and repeated the procedure few times until I got nice, solid and raised image. I cut a circle and adhered to my card. I added some Clear Nuvo Crystal drops to finish off my card.




For my next card I created a background using the Tis the Season set using Rockin' red, Lime Rickey, Grass Skirt and Garden Party Then stamped the little dots with versamark and embossed with gold. I created the frame from gold foil card stock using the Good Stuff dies and the Joy using the Joy wreath dies. I adhered to gold foil card stock panel, then white note card. 



For my last, but not the least card I used again both Tis the Season and Here We Come A Caroling sets. I cut mask for the poinsetia and dry embossed the tag from Good Stuff die set. Then masked around it, added the poinsettia mask and sponged around with Aquatini ink pad until I was satisfied. Removed the poinsettia mark and stamped the poinsettia. Then removed all masks. I stamped the sentiment in versamark and embossed in white, then moved my paper a little bit in the MISTI and stamped the sentiment again, this time I applied clear embossing powder. I added some White Nuvo Crystal drops. I sponged the edges of white panel using Aquatini ink, then adhered my panel onto it. to finish I adhered the whole panel onto white card note.
