Hello friends!! I’m so thrilled to be participating in Hero Arts’ 2020 Catalog Blog Hop!!
There are so many new exciting products and Hero Arts is releasing a new black MISTI and MISTI Corners!!
The first card I am sharing today features the Tulip Field Heroscape stamp set and frame cuts. I love all the new Hero Arts horoscopes there are such a fun and easy way to create a beautiful scene!
To create this card I first stamped the tulip field in several reactive inks (Grape Slush, Berry Smoothie, Key Lime Fizz, Green Apple, & Fog) and then die cut it out with the matching die. Next I created a mask using the infinity circle dies and contact paper. I placed the mask down onto an A2 panel and then ink blended a sunset (Blue Hawaii, Splash, Grape Slush, Taffy, Creamsicle, & Lemon Drop). Once I finished ink blending the sunset I then splattered some white paint and then removed the mask and ink blended the sun with Lemon Drop.
Next I stamped some hot air balloons and then die cut them out with the matching dies. I then stamped a sentiment in Intens-ified Black ink onto the blended panel. Next, I trimmed the panel and the field down 1/8″ and then adhered both down onto an A2 top-folding Pitch Black card base. I finished the card by adhering the balloons.
Next up is a card featuring the Lines and Swirls Texture Fancy Die and the Congrats Happy Stamp & Cut set.
For this card I first created the background by ink smooshing a rainbow of reactive inks (Fruit Punch, Taffy, Orangesicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, Pool Party, & Blue Hawaii) on to an A2 panel of watercolor paper.
I then ran the panel through my die cutting machine with the Lines and Swirls Texture Fancy Die. I then popped up different portions of the panel by pressing underneath and then adhered the panel down onto an A2 panel but avoiding adding adhesive to any of the portions that I had popped up. Next I trimmed my panel down 1/4″ and then adhered it to an A2 top-fold card base made from Dove White Cardstock.
I then created my sentiment by stamping the a sentiment from the Congrats Happy Stamp & Cut set in Soft Granite on Dove White Cardstock. Next, I trimmed the sentiment down to a strip. I then die cut “Congrats” out of Dove White cardstock and then heat embossed it in silver embossing powder. I then adhered the “Congrats” to the sentiment strip and then added doubled-up foam tape to the back of the strip and adhered it to the card front.
My last card features the beautiful Hero Floral Tulips stamp set and Frame Cuts as well as the Watering Can and Flowers Fancy Die.
For this card I first stamped several images from the Hero Floral Tulips stamp set in Intens-ified Black ink on Bristol paper. I then watercolored the leaves in with reactive inks (Taffy, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, & Fog). Once I had finished coloring the images in I then die cut them out with the matching dies.
I then ink blended on a panel (4″ x 5.25″) of Dove White cardstock with Pool Party Reactive Ink and then splattered with water. Next, I stamped my sentiment in Intenser-ified Black Ink and then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folding white card base.
Next, I die cut the watering can from the Watering Can and Flowers Fancy Die set out of Pebble cardstock. I then ink blended on the watering can with Wet Cement ink. I then filled the watering can with the flowers and leaves and used foam squares to hold them in place. I then finished the card by adhering the watering can and the butterfly to the card front.
I hope you all enjoyed my cards! Thank you so much for stopping by!
