A special "how to" From Hero Arts:
"You Light Up My Life"
|You Light Up My Life Card Sample by Nancy Taylor for Hero Arts|
CH173 Hearts Accent Pearls
CH202 Pewter Metallic Decor
MS204 Colorbox Chalk Queue - Pumpkin Patch
PS572 Earth Folded Cards
LP176 Decorative Lamps
White cardstock, twine, scissors, paper trimmer, yellow colored pencil, adhesive and a fine point black marker
Instructions (from Hero Arts):
Stamp all the lamps in a dark brown ink from the Pumpkin Patch Ink Queue. Trim each lamp into the same size paper.
Stamp the lamp with the leaf base in a rust colored ink queue on a separate piece of paper. Cut out the shade and around the leaves (leave a bit of color around the leaves as you cut). Glue the shade and the leaves over the matching images on the lamp. Add metallic décor accents to each of the circles on the base of the middle lamp. Using a black fine point marker, add a chain (out of little dots) to the remaining lamp and a bit of yellow (to simulate light) with a colored pencil. Attach a pearl heart to the end of the chain.
After gluing the lamp images to a wide strip of Latte cardstock add a few wraps of twine around the bottom of the card securing the twine with a knot on the front of the card.
Whenever you are going to add gemstones, accent hearts or other items with sticky back, try not to add over colored pencils. The pencils leave a bit of wax on the paper and the accents may not stick as well.
