Hero Arts Christmas - A Few of My Favorite Things

Here is a set I made using the Archivers/Hero Arts stamp and die set with lots 'o glitter, as a matter of fact my dog Duffy is still wearing the glitter! I am submitting these under "A few of my favourite things". The stamping on glitter technique is one of my favourites for the holidays.

Hero Arts Archivers Stamp and Cut ornaments
Hero Arts and Sizzix embossing folder
Inks Hero Arts - Red Royal, Navy, Cornflower, Tide Pool, Green Hills and Charcoal
Pearls and gems all HA mixed accents - Blush, Foliage, Sea and Neutral
Sentiments Papertrey Ink
Again, lots 'o glitter!

To make the ornaments I used double sided tape sheets. Glued one side to thin plain white card stock, die cut the ornaments then removed the tape covering from the top part and glittered the surface.  Sprayed with glue to hold the glitter in-place.  This is from a tutorial I saw on Barb Engler's blog last year (see link here).

Thanks for taking the time!


  1. I love the way these turned out--beautiful cards!

  2. Hi Kim. It has been so long since I have been here and to be honest I thought that I had already been a follower, but guess not. I am now though! Lol. Love your card set sweetie.l love all the texture and those Christmas bulbs are amazing. Love all the glitter and glam of this set. Your design is great and the power of 3 is done really does the trick here. Thanks for sharing another way for me to use this stamp set. I haven't been playing along with Mr. Hero challenges for some time now and I think that I must break out the stamps and jump into this contest before time runs out. Thanks for the inspiration. I hope that your all dried out down your way, it is less wet up here. Can't believe that you live so close. Maybe we need to get together for coffee sometime. Great to meet other NB gals. Take care
