2009 Hero Arts stamps

Hi everyone! The brand spanking new Hero Arts stamps have arrived in the store. We have demo boards to show you how to use some of these new stamps and make a card.
Here's a gift card that I made several weeks ago. I used all Hero stamps.
This froggy is so cute! I've used him in many of my projects. A picture of the gift card inside of the card. The background stamp is called holly flourish and I embossed it with clear embossing powder. This is one of my favorite background stamps to use for my holiday projects. I'll leave the card at the store so you can see it. Have a great day everyone!

Maddie card

Hi everyone! How's your Christmas shopping going? I haven't started yet but I'm hitting the malls today. I hope to get most of it done. Here's a card I made using the new Spellbinders nestabilities label one die. This is one of my favorite dies so far besides the classic circles. And because the dies nest, you can create all kinds of projects using this set. I started off using the Sizzix kit #2 to make the card. I embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflakes folder. Stamp is by Dandelion Designs and colored with Copic markers. Maddie's clothes is glittered with stickles and I used liquid pearls on the white parts of her clothes. Liquid Pearls is another favorite item that I love using these days. Stamp a sentiment inside the card and its ready to be mailed. Well, have a great Saturday and Happy Holidays!!!

Dear Santa...

Hi everyone! Here's a sample of a card using the new peek-a-boo windows die from Sizzix.I recently got myself a Janome mini sewing machine so I could add some stitching on my cards and layouts and here is my first attempt on sewing on a card. It actually saves on putting adhesive down to hold the pieces together. The dear santa words and the snowman are from the new Christmas deco strip Sizzlit dies that were made for this XL peek-a-boo window die.And see, the windows flap open and you can put a message or diecuts or photos etc. under the flaps. I actually wrote a message under each flap and put a photo of our grandson Zack uner the last flap. This would make a nice Christmas card to send to family and friends. The sample is at the store so if you get a chance, check it out next time you're shopping there.
Don't forget about the giveaways we are having at the store. And it slipped past me that the entry is with a purchase.
Happy Thursday!!!

Merry whoo...

As soon as the new Spellbinder dies arrived at the store, I grabbed a bunch of them. This card was made using the curvy rectangle megabilities. I used the fold method to turn this into a folded card. The owl stamp is a Penny Black stamp that we had a bunch of and now it is gone. The branch is a Sizzix deco strip die called bird and branches and the word Ho, Ho is from a new Sizzix deco strip die called advent #1 or it could be #2, 3 or 4. If you haven't been to the store lately, you should stop by to enter the drawing which ends this weekend. Edit - it is actually next week Friday and there will be 2 winners. Plus, the Hello Kitty Big Shots came in and it is the cutest machine so far.
Don't forget, that we have gift certificates in case you don't know what to get someone this Christmas who crafts a lot. And if you ever have questions about something you saw on the blog or in the store, please send us an email.
Happy Christmas shopping!!!
