Follow Your Heart with A2Z and Hero Arts

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my latest project featuring Hero Arts products found at A2Z Scrapbooking.


I had a good time with this one as it uses a favorite technique of heat foiling. I used a panel from Creative Vision Stamps and some of their Blade foil to do the background panel. The Monarch Fancy Butterfly die is from Hero Arts which is cut out of white cardstock as well as silver glitter cardstock. The sentiment is stamped using VersaMark clear embossing ink and heat embossed using Silver Glitter Powder.

I wish the photography really showed the amount of shine on this card.

Hope you have an awesome day, visit over at A2Z and see what we the rest of the designers have been working on.

Thinking of You with Die Cuttin' Divas

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. Let me just say, nothing like realizing at midnight when your post is supposed to go like at 6am, the project you made is NOT the project theme. SO, the original project I made last week for today's post will be used next month, when it actually fits the theme. NOW... For my "Thinking Of You" project for Die Cuttin' Diva's...

picsart_08-27-12.10.54This is probably the fastest and Clean and Simple card I have ever made, It took me longer to find my "Thinking of You" sentiment die, and the perfect paper for this project than it did to put it together.

SO, from the DCWV Blossom's and Butterflies paper pack I cut down a panel to 4" x 5.25" which I used ScraPerfect Glue to adhere to my a2 card base.

I ran my "thinking of you" die through my Vagabond using 110 lb Recollections cardstock and adhered that, along with 3 Rhinestones from Button's Galore to my panel. With that my card was complete.

I really do feel like I cheated this card was so easy to make, however, sometimes a Clean and Simple card is what is needed for the occasion.

Please join us over at Die Cuttin' Diva's for the "Thinking of You" challenge this week.

What does Fennec the Fox say?

HEY, that's what Fennec the Fox Says!!!


For my first A2Z project this month I used the Fennec the Fox stamp set to make this adorable card. I have a friend who I talk to all the time when I have trials going on, and she always makes time to listen.


I had fun making this card, I started with a plain white card base and used Distress Oxide Inks in Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber to blend my background. I did use the Fossilized Amber around all 4 edges of the base as well. I used an oval die from my stash to cut out the space for the blend to come through. I used Hero Arts Intense Black Ink to stamp my images and cut them with the Scan N Cut.

I colored my images using Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers and adhered them all down using ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever.

I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and with that my project was complete.

Hope you have an awesome day, come back and see what I have for my next project on Tuesday.

Encouragement Blog Hop

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with the fun project I made for this amazing Blog Hop that was put together to help encourage crafters from all areas and skill types to join in and have fun.


For my project I first did an ink blended background using Distress Oxides in Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron and Wilted Violet. I used my blending brushes to blend out this background and just love the way this turned out.

I used the My Favorite Things Playful Peacock stamp set to stamp  out the image and sentiment using MFT Extreme Black Ink. I used my Scan N Cut to cut out the Peacock image and then colored it with Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers.

In putting the project together I popped each of the segments up with foam tape. The final touch was sparkle gems by Button's Galore.

I really hope you have enjoyed my project, next up in the hop is Simone James and a video she has made for us on YouTube.

Have a Crafty Day!!!
