Hello friends!! Today I’m joining Hero Arts March My Monthly Hero Release and Blop Hop!! I have to tell you, Hero Arts has done it once again, this kit and release is amazing!!
If you are like me and are pretty much obsessed with all of Hero’s Heroscapes Sets then you must get this month’s kit!! Included in this kit is a gorgeous Heroscape Stamp Set that creates a stunning Japanese garden!
To create this card first I stamped the second layer or details layer for the ground in Emerald Green Shadow Ink onto Meadow cardstock. Next, I die cut the ground out with the matching landscape die. I then ink blended the bottom portion of the ground with Emerald Green ink. Next, I stamped the second layer for the tree first in Taffy Reactive ink and then partially in Rose Madder Bold Ink onto Peony cardstock. I then die cut the tree top out with the matching die. Once die cut, I then ink blended the bottom with Taffy Reactive Ink. Next, I die cut the trunk out of Chestnut cardstock. I then ink blended the trunk with Cup O’ Joe Shadow Ink.
I then stamped an A2 panel of Mist cardstock with the Waves and Clouds Bold Prints stamp in Soft Pool Shadow Ink. Next, I die cut the panel with a circle die from the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies. I then die cut the ground layer with the same circle die and adhered the ground and the tree to the circle. Next, I stamped a sentiment onto the circle in Intenser-ified Black Ink.
I then adhered what remained of the Mist panel onto an A2 top-folding card base. I then adhered a white panel measuring 5 1/2″ x 4 1/8″ onto the card front. I then trimmed off a small portion of the circle with a pair of scissors, then added foam squares and adhered it to the card front.
Next up is a card I created with the Dreams Will Blossom Stamp Set which is part of the add-ons for this release.
First, I stamped the flowers in Intens-ified Black Ink onto bristol paper. I then watercolored the flowers in with several Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
- Leaves: 126 + 346
- Petals: 873 +723
- Center: 725
- Stamen: 020 + 985
Once colored I then die cut the flowers out with the matching dies. Next, I ink blended at the top and bottom of an A2 top-folding card base made from Peony Cardstock with Taffy Reactive Ink.
I then smooshed ink down onto my works surface, added a small amount of water and then added ink spots. Next, I trimmed some Dove White cardstock to 3″ x 3 3/4″ and then stamped a sentiment in Intensified Black Ink. I then adhered the panel onto the card front and then added the florals with foam squares. Lastly I finished the card with some sequins from the Pink Pop Flower Sequins Mix.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my cards! Be sure to check out the rest of the hop and leave some comments along the way for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate!! Enter by Sunday, March 8th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
