Earth Day Celebration!

Hello readers and Happy Earth Day to you all! Did you know our Earth has over 6 billion people living on it?! How incredible that there’s something that can support all of us! Well, in honor of the Earth’s day today, we asked a couple pretty snazzy designers to make some “recycled” or “reused” cards for us! Check them out- the designers went above and beyond what we were even thinking!

This card is by Danielle Walls! She did the “Earth Day” theme in three different ways! First, she reused a card layout she’d already done in the past. Then, see that corrugated paper? It’s a Starbucks Cup Sleeve! Talk about recycling! And finally, obviously the loving tree and sentiment speak to the theme! Check out Danielle’s blog for fun tutorials and lots of inspiration!

Next up is a recycled project from Linda from Papertracer Blog! Linda’s blog is always fresh with artsy and creative projects! Linda, along with our next designer Mary Dawn, just recently started A Blog Named Hero– a blog dedicated to loving Hero Arts Products! Check them out for super fun challenges and awesome Design Team projects!

For these two matching recycled projects, Linda almost used as much recycled as she did new! She used a cardboard box for the embellishment and gift tag, a button from an old shirt, left over string, a doily from underneath a cake, the smaller doily is from a cafe, a paper bag that used to hold Easter Eggs, and the zipper is from packaging that new bed sheets came in! Whoa! Such simple items to create these two beauties!
Supplies you can use with recycled items to create a similar look:

This card is from Mary Dawn, the ever inspiring writer of the My Pink Mexico blog, and like I said before- co-starter of A Blog Named Hero! I really like the twist Mary Dawn did with this card.. she took the acetate cling stamps come on, and used her Silhouette to cut a Hero Arts Stamp pattern out! That is the screen pattern she used! How clever! If you don’t have a Silhouette, you could always use a craft knife to cut the acetate into a desired pattern!
Here are additional supplies used:
