Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with a a2z Scrapbooking Challenge. The theme this month is Getting To Know You!!

Take a look at my card:

Here’s how I created this card:

For this card I masked off a portion of the card with post-it tape.

Then I used Distress Ink Wild Honey and Broken China and blended them together using the ink blending tool.

After that, I stamp the butterflies from Hero Arts Layering Butterflies stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black Ink, 3 times. Then I stamped the sentiment using the same ink.

Once that is complete, I added small white dots using a gelly roll pen to enhance the butterflies.

Clean and simple design!

Take a look at my card:

stencil-hello-a2z

I had so much fun this weekend playing with my Gel Press Plate that I had to create a card using it.  I added paint to the gel press using a brayer.  Then I placed the plate on top of the card front.  After that, I placed the stencil on top of the gel plate.  Then I added the ink on top of the stencil using a brayer.  I removed the stencil and placed the gel plate on top of the card front creating a textured look on the card front. Then I die cut the sentiment hello out of white cardstock and adhered it to the card front.

Pretty cool!

Here is how I created this tag:

I gather all of my supplies needed to create a tag:  Hero Arts Joyful Tiding Tag Set, Hero Arts Raspberry Ink, Hero Arts Black Ink, Lucy Abrams Ivory Sequin, We R Memory Keepers Fuse Tool, We R Memory Keepers Photo Sleeves,  and Tombow Mono Adhesive Plus, We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and a ColorBox Art Dauber.

I die cut three tags so that I could stack them on top of each other.  Then I used the sponge dauber to add some color using the Hero Arts Raspberry Jam Ink.

Once the top tag was inked to my liking, I adhered the two additional tags with Tombow Mono Adhesive Plus.

Once all of the pieces were in place, I used the Mini MISTI to stamp the sentiment on the tag.

Place the finished tag inside the plastic and line the die up over it.  Use Washi tape to hold it down.  Then you want to glide the fuse tool around the die, sealing it.

Once you add the sequin is added inside, seal the top of the tag the same way you did the body of the tag.

Punch a hole using a We R Memory Keepers Crop-a-dile and string a piece of string.

Nice and easy! Super cool to create!
