A Blog Named Hero – Christmas Quickies

Hey there!

Popping in to share a quick set a mini Christmas cards. I made these for the Christmas event over at A Blog Named Hero. This week they’re featuring quick Christmas projects.

These little cards came together super fast thanks to the amazing Hero Arts Brush Stroke set and the super fun neon inks. Each card measures 3″x 3″ and I think they took me about 2 minutes each – like I said, super simple!

Stamped Notepad

Hey friends!
Just a quick post tonight – exhausted after an early start at a Christmas fair today – had to wake up at 5:30 to guarantee I could shower before the little one got up for the day.

Anyways, I’m over at A Blog Named Hero today sharing a simple little gift idea. I picked up a square notepad and stamped the sides with some lovely Christmas trees. I know there are companies that make these pads specifically for stamping and that would have worked a little better, but it still worked fine. Nothing ground breaking, but a nice little teacher’s gift or something along those lines.

The other project I’m sharing is a wine bottle tag – I always make tons of these around the holidays – my friends all love them and they are the perfect way to dress up a bottle when you are being hosted for dinner or a party.

A Blog Named Hero challenge – Victorious Vellum

Hey there!

Today is my last guest post at A Blog Named Hero – it has been great to be a guest – such great girls full of inspiration! I’m sharing a card for the new challenge – to use vellum. Vellum is definitely the come-back kid of 2013! I used vellum back in the day when I started scrapbooking, but it started gathering dust until recently.

I colored the vellum with Copics and punched out circles. Because the vellum is colored, I was able to run it through a Zyron without the adhesive showing through. I added a stamped sentiment, patterned paper and stapled on some twine. This is a super easy card and gets you a lot more mileage from clear vellum.
Make sure to check out the rest of the DT inspiration and join in the fun. There is a great Simon Says Stamp gift certificate up for grabs too!
