Floral Beauty

Hello!  The Crafty Nurse here with a little Hero Arts inspiration for the May "Tone on Tone" challenge at A Blog Named Hero.


This month we are collaborating with GinaK Designs, who not only has a great store, but provides hours of amazing video content so be sure to visit and learn some amazing stamping techniques.

For my card today I used the April Hero Arts Kit, which sadly is already sold out and usually happens quickly, so grab them when you can.  This kit comes with a stunning floral set that has both pop-up and standard dies to match.  There was also a Daniel Smith watercolor sampler giving you a chance to test several colors.  Once you try these quality paints, you'll absolutely love them.

Tone on Tone 3-5

I hope you'll join us at A Blog Named Hero for our May Tone on Tone Challenge! We can't wait to see your entries.  Happy Stamping!!

My Friend

Hi Everyone! 

Ilina's here today with a card using some wonderful products from this month's sponsor GINA K Designs
This month's challenge is tone on tone, so I used the larger flower image from the Made with Love stamp set to stamp on my Aqua Mist card base with soft pool ink. As well I used the same ink to stamp on white card stock for my focal point, and on top I stamped a sentiment from Better With You set then die cut it and added some Hero Arts clear gemstones. 
Hope this card inspires you to create something and enter this month's challenge ;)

Pink tone on tone

Michelle here today, with a tone-on-tone card for this month's challenge. I usually think of tone-on-tone as being soft, pale and subtle. Not when the base colour is hot pink!

I sponged white pigment ink over the Large Lotus Pattern stencil for the background. I white embossed the sentiment on some vellum and cut it out with a stitched circle die.  I added some mid-pink and pale pink enamel dots, and used them and the sentiment to hide the liquid adhesive to attach the vellum to the card.  
Make sure you visit the first post of the month (see the link at the top of the right sidebar) and link up your own creation.

 Thanks for visiting :)

Welcome to May and welcome Gina K!

Hi friends!

I'm here to introduce yet another fantastic collaboration company! Gina K has been a favourite of ours for such a long time, since starting card making, I've been watching her videos on Youtube to learn lots of new techniques!

So this month our theme is

I stamped the flowers from Gina K, using Red Royal ink from Hero Arts, I then added some dark red shades in the centre using my Prismacolour Pencils. For the sentiment I took two Hero sets and created a custom phrase.

Thanks for stopping by today!! Don't forget we have a new challenge this month and  you have until the 29th of this month to enter!

See you again soon!
