- I started by inking Citron Distress Ink on the background. I wanted the bottom to be darker and then fade upward.
- Next I created my scene. I used the following stamp sets and colored with Zigs: My Monthly Hero January 2019 (shoppe and bike), Altenew Garden Grow (table and bird), My Monthly Hero April 2017 (dog), Life Time Tea set.
- I embossed the sentiment: Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Ride and then assembled the card.
UPDATE: I was very pleased to learn that my card was selected as a \”Cut Above\” winner at The Paper Players.
Hello and thank you for stopping by! This week it is Feminine Anything Goes at Watercooler Wednesday. Heidi is our hostess this week. Check out our website for more artist cards and details on the challenge.
I LOVE scene cards, so when I saw Hero Arts January 2019 kit I had a ton of card ideas. This particular card is for Mother\’s Day. It took a bit of time to make, but I love the end result.
- I ink-blended the Stamper\’s Anonymous Bricked Layering Stencil for the Background.
- The shop scene was stamped on Bristol cardstock and then watercolored with Tombow Dual Tip markers. Everything was die-cut and then arranged on an A2 card with foam tape.

UPDATE: My Mother\’s Day card was chosen \”Top 5\”in the Allsorts Challenge! 🙂
I came up with an idea to combine two of my favorite Hero Arts sets: My Monthly Hero January 2019 kit and Hero Arts Fun in the Rain.
The pup from this set looks like my mini-Aussie so I colored her with markings like my \”Scout\”. I think it is so cute that she has a raincoat on and I thought this would be perfect for a Spring card.
Since this is an easel card, I die cut some thick leathery textured paper from The Paper Company. I used black paper to simulate a blackboard and then heat embossed with a bold birthday sentiment to get that chalkboard look.
I am really pleased with the way this card came together.
I am entering this card in:
Cardz4Guyz \”Let\’s Get Messy\” – For me, I always make the biggest mess with embossing powder. No matter how neat I try to be, little bits of powder wind up all over my work surface!
The Male Room \”Spring\” Challenge – This cute pup is sporting her raincoat for the spring showers.
Thanks for stopping by!
I\’ve combined two of my favorite stamps sets (My Monthly Hero: April 2017 and January 2019) to create this pink scene confection. The card is girly and feminine and is for one of my BFFs.
I started by applying Distress Ink Spun Sugar over my bricked layering stencil. Next I stamped the Hero Arts Images, colored with Copic markers and then die cut.I\’d left the \”window\” uncolored, and after die cutting, I applied Distress Ink Spun Sugar with a hint of Pickled Raspberry.Then I assembled my scene using foam tape.
A Blog Named Hero Challenge I love this card because it combines two of my favorite Hero Arts Stamp Sets: My Monthly Hero April, 2017 and My Monthly Hero January, 2019.
Addicted to Stamps Photo Inspiration– I was drawn to the color scheme in this photo inspiration: pinks, aqua and neutrals with a hint of purple.
Dar and Diane \”Pink and White Challenge\” I was drawn to the soft pink, white and gray on the mood board.

I wanted to create a valentine that would appeal to men and thought a cute \”scene\” card featuring two dogs trying to get together in a florist shop would be fun. One dog is peering out over the window sill as the other dog is using a crate to try and climb inside.
To create my scene, I combined the January 2019 My Monthly Hero kit with two pups from MFT\’s Lucky Dog stamp set. I love both sets! First I created a background using Tim Holtz Stamper\’s Anonymous Bricked Layering Stencil and Simon Says Stamp Hybrid Stone ink. The stencil was not quite wide enough for the full card so I stenciled the right side and blended toward the middle, then stenciled the left side blending so that my A2 card was fully covered. I think the bricks turned out well.
Next I stamped (on Xpress It paper), colored (with Copics) and die cut the images with my new Gemini Junior. I then embossed the sentiment on the window. Using foam tape, I adhered my scene to the background.
- I am very pleased that this card was selected “Top 5” in the Allsorts Challenge:
- And Pile It On Sweet Sprinkles Award.
