Stamping with Colored Pencils and Hero Arts

I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend! We got one day off from the non-stop rain so we spent the day relaxing in the park, so it was pretty perfect :)

I just found out about this contest/challenge for Hero Arts so I jumped on the card making immediately. The rules are to use either a flower in your card, make an ATC, or use colored pencils, and of course incorporate a Hero Arts stamp. I don't have many large HA flower stamps, so I focused on working with colored pencils for pretty much the first time ever.

Enjoy browsing my latest projects!

Very simple card. Peacock and phrase both Hero Arts stamps. I shaded the birdie with pencils, this was my first one, woohoo!

A happy Hello giraffe! All stamps from Hero Arts, and giraffe and butterfly shaded using colored pencils. I punched out flower embossed yellow paper to match the giraffe spots (Thanks Kari for the emboss folder!) and also embossed the side.

Smile with the Shroomies! Hero Arts stamps used, all mushrooms, 'smiles', and border flowers. Colored in with pencils, and some red stickles added to the middle of the stamped flowers. I used my EK Success flower border punch on the edges.

Smile Crocodile! I think this ended up being my favorite! Crocodile stamp, phrase, and butterfly stamp from Hero Arts. I colored the animals with colored pencils. The scallop was shaded with a matching light green ink. Corners are punched with a Fiskars 3in1 corner punch, with little bling bits added to the middle.

There is no one like you special ducky card. Line the ducks in a row with Hero Arts stamps and colored with pencils. The yellow ducky also has orange Stickles on his beak and wing. I embossed a light blue paper strip with bubbles (for water!) and then shaded the top part of the water with different colored blue inks, and a white chalk on top.

Just had fun with this one, a "Hi" glittery peacock card. Texture embossed with this gorgeous big flower folder and glittered up pieces of the flower with stickles and Martha Stewart glitter and glue. Colored in the peacock with pencils. I really like how the colored pencils look on the Kraft paper!

Thanks for browsing! Enjoy your Sunday :)

  1. These all look great! I think my favorite is the croc too, but I also love the peacock. The colored pencil looks lovely!

  2. You've been busy!!! This has really inspired me to colour in some of my stamps with pencils. Not sure any of my hero arts stamps are appropriate for the challenge though. Your crocodile and Hi peacock are my favourites!!x

  3. You did a wonderful job girl. Once again - you are welcome for the folder. It was my pleasure doing a nice thing for a nice person! :o)
