Hero Arts November Contest

Ok, so today Hero Arts started their November Contest.  You can check out the details HERE.  One of the options is to make a card with bling.  I LOVE BLING!  So I was very excited to see what I could come up with.  I had it in my head that I needed to make a card for a relative that lives far away to send her for Thanksgiving. This is what I came up with.

It's so hard to capture all the sparkle in pictures, isn't it?  

I haven't decided on the inside sentiment yet.  I'm thinking either "we're part of the same family tree." or something simple like "for you." 

Here's the details. I used DCWV papers. The striped background paper is from the "Green Stack."  It doesn't come with the glitter on it.  I wanted to make this card with extra bling, so I used my atg gun to run glue lines along the card and then covered them in glitter ( Barbara Trombley's Original Art Glittering System, Ultra Fine Nirvana Transparent...to be exact.)  I cut the tree from the Cricut Alphabet cartridge that came with my Expression 2. I added lots of Hero Arts bling with the blue gemstones and used the Hero Arts Fanciful Swirl Alphabet stamps to make my sentiment.

Thanks so much for looking. I'd love to hear your comments. 


  1. I just love glitter and bling and your colors are so cheery!! Wish I could use my cricut right now,....unfortunately my desktop is on the blink so I can't.

  2. You recently became a follower of my blog and I had to pop over and see yours - you are brand new! I hope you are having fun with it. I just recently started following the Hero Arts contests and hope to be doing more of them. I wished that I remembered to use my Cricut more - but it is in a different room. I love your swirly tree!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. It really means so very much to me.
