Day 4 of the Trio Challenge

Welcome to Day 4 of my Trio Challenge with my girls Kathy and Lucy. Today we will all be using a Hero Arts Digital Flower

In Photoshop, I shrunk the flower to a smaller size and repeated it all over a 5.5"x4.25" piece. I then printed two larger flowers. I covered one of the large flowers with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink and then sprayed it with perfect pearl water. I then inked the other with Grass Chalk Ink and cut out leaves. Easy and fun…

I love digital stamping. It rocks. And just because you use digital images to create something doesn't mean it has to LOOK digital. :) Here are a few of my favorite Hero Arts digial sets…

See you tomorrow. Happy stamping.

    Jennifer, this note is about older ideas/techniques you’ve presented; using the Fiskar’s stamp press and saving the cello bags the HA cling and clear stamps are in to stamp on with Stazon Ink. Using the Spiderweb background stamp from HA, the stamp press and stazon ink, stamp the web on the larger cello bags and an easy, fast, and economical Halloween treat bag is made. I’m putting a couple little bags of candy and a decorative pencil in the bags. The kids will pick out which bag they want because of the pencil design. As you would say “easypeasy”! Thanks for making the treats a little more special this year. I probably would not do this if our area had a lot of kids, but there’s only about 15 – 20 kids.
    Again, thanks for all your good ideas and the time you put into giving them to us!!

  14. So gorgeous, love what the three of you created today – all so different yet all amazing. TFS

    This is beautiful. Haven’t tried
    digital yet, but re-thinking that
    after seeing thses cards!!!!

  16. Jennifer,
    Is your printer ink waterproof? My concern with using the distress inks and perfect pearl water was that the digital design might smear. Any tips?

  17. LOVE it. Another FAB card.
    You sure know how to rock the digis Jennifer. (Said with STRONG American accent)

  18. Love your card! I will have to try digital stamping!

  19. You just gotta test yours – mine is fine with the techniques.

  20. cher

    soooooooo pretty! one day I will try the digi kits…so afraid I wont be able to use them right! hate the puter skills I dont have lol…but I love this card!

  21. Tona

    I’m not a digi paper crafter but your card is really pretty.

  22. Gorgeous card today! Love the color of your main flower! So beautiful! :)

  23. Do you print your digi images on a laser printer? If not, how do you get the inkjet printed image NOT to smear when you ink it? I can’t get mine to work… Humph!

  24. Deanna T.

    Thank you Jennifer…I loved the flower card so much…went to 2 Peas and bought it. the HA-Flower Faces kit..there are what look like duplicates, but some have this in front of the name ._ it is a dot and underscore..they will not open..can you tell me what they are for?
    Thanks so much for the tutorial..I will love working with the Flower Faces.
    Hugs, Dee

  25. Sue D

    Very pretty–the flower just pops against the black and white background.

  26. Beautiful card. Now off to check the others.

  27. Kathyc on SCS

    I just love all three projects today! I didn’t realize that HA had such a great selection of digital images; I may have to try them out!

  28. Kelley

    I’m just getting started on the digital stamps. The ones I’ve gotten are a lot of fun. Thanks for sharing.

  29. Effective and very pretty card – thanks for sharing the ‘how to’ – much appreciated! x

  30. I’ve never tried digital so thanks for the inspiration!

  31. some ink jet printers are ok – mine happens to be.
    just email your file to your local office depot or kinkos or whatever and they can print on whatever paper you want for 10 cents. laser!

  32. i am not sure – but the 2peas customer service will be quick to help.

  33. Great idea using photo shop to make the card base and the look is awesome. Very pretty. I have never tried digital and wouldnt know what to do. Maybe you can show a video on this sometime? Thanks for all you do show.

  34. Genius! Love this design!

  35. love the flower background. beautiful card, Jennifer!

  36. Mendi Yoshikawa

    WOW! WOW! WOW! This is absolutely stunning! I really love the bold, graphic feel and the color combo! This one is going into my scraplift file right now. :D

    I really love the digital stamps too and I saw that 2Peas has gotten some new ones since the last time I peeked. Love how you can resize them and their great affordability!

  37. Bonnie

    Wow, what a beautiful card !! I have never tried anything digi yet, but after seeing yours and Lucy’s card I am pretty tempted, but I do not have photoshop or similar program, is it still possible to do simple projects?? Thanks for all the great inspiration.

  38. you can open and resize them in word!

  39. Beautiful, Jennifer. The coloured flower looks very striking on the b&w background!

  40. How beautiful! And what an easy card to make. I’m definatly going to have to make some like this! TFS!

  41. Paula I

    I love using digi stamps as well, the storage alone is a huge plus! And they’re so economical, you really can’t beat it. I used your technique recently. I’m making gifts for friends and one for myself, since we are all cancer survivors and now have a lovely memento symbolic of our journey. I colored a large butterfly with tattered rose then sprayed it with perfect pearls…stunning in person. These were attached to a picture frame with a cluster of smaller butterflies and a journey sentiment. The girls just loved them. Thanks for sharing.


    LOve the b&w background with the red and yellow.

  43. Ann I.

    Just beautiful!
