Received my new Hero Arts kit today and couldn’t wait to start playing. Double D has a What is your Christmas style challenge on this week. Like one of my stamping buddies I don’t really think I have a particular style. I just like trying things out, but this card leans to the more traditional style.


My kit included both stamps and dies so it was fun to pick images and create a scene. As the door opens I decided to stamp a welcome underneath it with the animals in the doorway. Not seen on photo, but there is a cat as well as the dog on the mat. I marked the door with pencil on the card base so I could get correct placement for the images. coloured them with a combination of pencils and brush markers. Die cut the door front and shaded in the bricks with pencils. Used brush marker for the door and sakura pens for the lights and the wreath. Made silver door handle and letter flap.

    1. Thanks Judy – my hubby has said that if I do another one he will create a small photo of our own dog to put behind the door. That gave me an idea and I am now thinking that perhaps I will make these for next year but put ourselves and the dog behind the door.

    1. Thanks Gayle – I had such fun playing with my new set. I did one with stairs but haven’t posted it yet. I think I like the Hero Arts kits as I loved the jungle one too.


  1. Thanks Diane – I really enjoy the challenges you come up with. I like the mood boards because they allow for a lot of creativity.
