Paper Crafts Crew 308 – Hero Arts Home for the Holidays
Welcome back to the Paper Craft Crew Challenge! This week we have an sketch challenge. I had tremendous trouble getting a card made this past week. I dunno, I had one of those weeks where nothing worked. Originally, this challenge was supposed to be last week, and it’s just as well because the card I started sucked. I knew I wanted to use the new Hero Arts Home for the Holidays stamps and dies, but how to make a fun holiday card was just eluding me.
So when the date got moved, I was relieved. But that just meant I had to try again this week. I decided to riff off a card I made before a couple of years ago and do all white with touches of blue so that I could also enter it in the current challenge at A Blog Named Hero. Lookie:
GOJUS! I started out with Hero Arts Home for the Holidays set, stamping in Ranger Wendi Vecchi Archival Sky Blue ink.
I created my little scene using the stamped pieces and the Snowy Drifts dies from Hero Arts.
I used Hero Arts Snowflake Edge behind this piece with a little bit of Darice Blue Sparkle tape. For the base of the card, I used the new Wood Grain Texture die from Hero Arts.
I added some pretty sequins and some Wink of Stella to pump up the bling! I love building little scenes like this, and Hero Arts Home for the Holidays is the perfect set for that!

Stampin Up! links go to my buddy Wendy Weixler’s website. She doesn’t pay me, but I’m always happy to send business her way! You can, of course, change to your own demonstrator if you prefer.
Buying through these links costs you nothing extra but remits a small percentage of the purchase price to me, which helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you.
