A blog named Hero, Sparkle & Shine

I love Hero Art Stamps a lot and I am a subscriber from the Monthly Hero Art Kit... The new one will be come next week, some people have her kit already... but as an subscriber in Europe I have to wait... I shorten my waiting time to play with the current challenge and use an older My Monthly Hero Kit.... 

I play with the current  challenge:

The theme is sparkle and shine.... The DT made beautiful cards to inspire. One of my teacher (Amy Shulke) I had in a course wrote also an E-Mail and supported one of the DT Member. Her name is Cynthia Whitlow... She made a wonderful card and inspire me... As I visited her blog I found also a amazing video... check it out if you have fun to watching :)  So I decided to made a card with an flower.


How I made the card?

I used follow ingredients for my card:
  •  Distress Oxide Ink (tumbled glass, salty ocean, peacock feathers), water
  • My Monthly Hero Art Kit from September last year 
  • Danke (means thanks) Die  from Create a Smile
  • Embossing powder bridal Tinsel (sparkle effect), white embossing powder, Versamark 
  • different inks for stamp the flowers
  • Prismapencils for making effects/ deepness
I cut out a paper 11x4 Inch and score it by 5.5 Inch. This is my card base and I want to made a CAS (clean and simple) card. After than I stamped the flower, with the different colors. It should be bright colors. Than I masking the flower, also the side, that I can distress a strip (I eye catch this). I love to play with colors like Distress Oxide Ink, after than I splatter a few water drops on the paper and take the rest with a kitchen towel. Now I cut two silver stripe, to bring more sparkle/ shine into my card and add this right and left from the distress area. The side with the flower is a little be tricky... With my Prismacolor I can give more deepness to the flower, so they looks more realistic.  At last I die cut the word danke 5 times and glue this together. I stamp the word "vielmals" with Versamark and embossed it with white powder. The die cut word "Danke" I stamped the Versamark on the hole word and bring the shining powder (bridal tinsel) on this and glue it on my card. 



Danke vielmals means in English Thanks so much :) and I would also say thanks so much for visit my blog and for your lovely comment... 






MFT Summer School Ombrè

Hi, at this time the Summer School by MFT is running and you can win some cool stuff. If you don't win, you will have fun to create something...




the theme today is:



Stephanie Klauck shows in her video two cards with an ombré effect. I think she shows also the Monochromatic. Both cards looks great. I use the ombré effect to made an underwater scene with the cutest otter I found in my stuff. 

I used the stamp set "Otterly love you" from MFT, also Distress Oxide Ink (tumbled glass, salty ocean and peacock feathers), Masking tape for the otter and Zig Real Color brushes for color my animals.



How I made my card?

I cut out my paper 4x11Inch long and score it by 5.5 Inch. After I show, which size rectangle size I need for my underwater scene. Than I masking it with my tape (I use pink from Tesa, a soft tape, I saw it by my friend Nicole Vögeli, an amazing card crafter). I stamped my image and thought it will be great to have a second in the same area. So I spend my tape to stamp it in the corner. I closed the corner with my tape and made masking for my stamps. After I prepare the images for the Ombrè technique I started with my lighter color tumbled glasses, than say ocean and at last peacock feathers to made the ombré effect. Before I move the masking I splatter water on my card and use a kitchen tool to remove the rest. Now I color my otters with my Zig clean color brush. 

I add the eye's, blush, hearts and glossy Accent, also the sentiment. 


So my card is finished and ready to play with this wonderful challenge. 5 days with lot of fun are going to end and I loved what I made in this time.

MFT Summer School Rainbow

Hi, at this time the Summer School by MFT is running and you can win some cool stuff. If you don't win, you will have fun to create something...




the theme today is:



Stephanie Klauck shows in her video, how she made rainbow cards with paper stripes. I love rainbow colors, this is one of my favorite. I decided me to play again with the Witch Way is the candy stamp set to play...

I used the stamp set "Witch Way Is the candy?", rainbow color paper, also You Die from MFT. I made 3 cards...



How I made my card?

At first I searched my paper, used rainbow colors... (violet, pink, red, orange, yellow, green and blue). I use pattern paper... bright colors. I made the same like Stephanie shows in her video. After than I think about, what I want to make with. 

I cut the word YOU (You Trio from MFT) out from the color sheet and put the word on a A2 card base. before I glue it I decided me, that I want to made a card with a sentiment from the Witch Way is the candy? stamp set and use the "I am Bats about you"... Maybe you can help me and write in the comments below, what it means exactly (because English isn't my mother language and I have no idea. I put around the sentiments the cute little bats and finished the first card...


How I made my card?

Now I have the negativ color sheet and thought it will be nice to made a card with them too. This time I glue the color sheet on my card base and add a sentiment from SSS You got this. This is a very easy card. For e better effect I add a few drops from Studio Katja and card is finish.


How I made my card?

Now I show you my last card for today. I use the scrap with an stamp from WPlus9 friends for all seasons Spring and stamp the umbrella. I color a lightly shadow in the scrap and fuzzy cut it out. I made a frog masking and stamp the umbrella directly on the card base. After I removed the masking I colored the frog with my Prismacolor pencils and add a few grass. At last I find this sentiment from the SSS stamp set  You Got This. 

Now you can see all cards again

I hope you have fun to show the cards and let you inspire :)

MFT Summer School Visual Triangle

Hi, at this time the Summer School by MFT is running and you can win some cool stuff. If you don't win, you will have fun to create something...




the theme today is:


Barbara Anders shows in her video, how she made one card with Visual Triangle.  This is like a path for our eyes. She said that you should use a trio of common elements or simliar color, placed as if at the points of a triangle. Ok, I thought about my first card, I made already cards with this visual triangle, but normally I don't think about this. At this card I decided me to use again the same stamp set from MFT.

I used the stamp set "Witch Way Is the candy?", Distress Oxide Ink, Gansai Watercolor and Prismacolor pencils. 


How I made my card?

I cut my paper in 11x4 Inch and fold it by 5.5 Inch. So I have my card base. I also prepare a paper I think it was 4x3Inch to made the Distress Ink background. I use Distress Oxide Ink (spun sugar, seedless preserves, salty ocean, black scoot). I begin with the lightest color and going to the edge with darker color. After Distress, I use my pencil to water color splash with white, gold and sclera to made a night sky with a lot of stars.
I stamped the pumpkins and the cat and color with my Prismacolors. I use silver glitter paper under the night sky. arrange the pumpkins and the cat in an triangle form, also add a few crystals gems on my cards (should be stars).


...so cat looking at them.  I search a sentiment who will fit and found one from Altenew Stamp set Kind Words.

At last I finished my card.

MFT Summer School Focal Point

Hi, at this time the Summer School by MFT is running and you can win some cool stuff. If you don't win, you will have fun to create something...




the theme today is:



Karolyn Lancon shows in her video, how she made the focal point. She use two examples. I love her really cards and she inspire my to try the Die embossed and distress background.  I love to play with the same stamp set like Monochromatic

I used the stamp set "Witch Way Is the candy?", Distress Oxide Ink and Prismacolor pencils. 


How I made my card?

I cut my paper in 11x4 Inch and fold it by 5.5 Inch. So I have my card. I use a Die from Waffle Flowers Lacy Lars 2 and embossed it on my paper, after than I use a similar paper and cut it (I use a second for masking). After masking my card i use Distress Oxide Ink (spun sugar, twisted citron, also a little black scoot), to made the landscape. I also use cloud and grass stencil from MFT. I glue black and white paper stripe from my stuff on both sides and the background in the middle on the card base.  I stamped the witch and the frog on pencil paper and colored with my Prismacolors. I decide me to color other eye, who will fit to the face... to give the character a little more live :) After the coloring I fuzzy cut the images, because I haven't the dies from this stamp set.



Now I look, how I arrange the images on the card, before I stamp the sentiment and finish my card, I also add  the images with foam tape.
