• Ombré Hydrangea

    I love the variety of inks that Hero Arts offers. It’s so fun to see the transformation of the Color Layering images. Today’s card is a good example of unexpected color combinations. Isn’t the Color Layering Hydrangea stamp set beautiful? The leaves are stamped with Lime Green Shadow Ink and then layered with Green Apple. I was surprised […]

    You're My Pick by Jessica Frost-Ballas for Hero Arts

    Good morning! Jess here with a card using one of the add-on sets from this month’s My Monthly Hero kit, Produce and Seeds, along with the beautiful Artistic Dahlia wood mount stamp.

  • Happy Birthday Hummingbird

  • Video: How to Color Antique Roses with Colored Pencils

    Recently I’m really into coloring with colored pencils. For today’s coloring project, I used the Antique Rose stamp which is a great stamp as it has large petals to color. It also includes some shading so it makes my guess work for shading easier. When you use colored pencils, it’s good to start with light […]

  • Birthday Wreath

    I often find that certain stamps I pass over quickly become one of my favorites to use. Such is the case with the Antique Bee and Flowers. I’m not sure if it’s just that it’s a woodblock stamp, and because I store mine in drawers, they end up being rather “out of sight, out of mind.” In any case, when I did take it out to play, I had some fun.

  • Prayers and Love

    Today’s card is one you can share with a loved one who is going through a time of sadness or loss. Although this type of card can be difficult to make, I find it a bit easier to create several in one sitting and keep them on hand. A simple and elegant look is often […]
