Welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts Holiday Blog Hop! Today we are featuring some of the fabulous products from the 2014 Holiday Catalog and hope to give you lots of inspiration for your holiday card making.
My card features the Peace Poinsettias clear stamp set. This gorgeous flower is perfect for many coloring techniques and I chose to use Distress Inks to create a watercolor effect
This stamp set also has a coordinating die that will help speed up your holiday card making, but I didn't use the die in the traditional way today. I trimmed out the flower and leaves by hand right next to the embossing so there was no border. Then I used the dies to die cut the flower and leaves on a white panel. When the flower is inlaid, you are left with a gap that will allow the color of the card base to show through. So fun!

Welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts + A2Z Scrapbooking Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating A2Z
Scrapbooking as a new Hero Arts digital retailer. Currently, A2Z offers a selection of our
digital goodies, but in the coming
weeks, they will be adding to their collection and stocking the entire
range. So artists from A2Z
and Hero Arts have teamed up to provide you with a whole host of
inspiration and fun using these digital products.
First, I printed the sentiment in black on white cardstock and the blue constellation background onto vellum.
Then I die cut the medium sized star from the Stylish Stars Frame Cuts to create a window on the sentiment panel. I also die cut the same star on my card base, so the vellum star would be visible from the inside of the card as well.
The small scattered stars are from the Star Background Fancy Die. I just colored them with a rainbow of Distress ink colors and covered them with Glossy Accents.
And here's what the card looks like opened...
