Hero Arts: Hello Beautiful

Hi stampers! 
Happy Monday! Hope you all had a good weekend. I am back today with a card using some of the new Hero Florals stamps. They will be available in the Hero Arts store on May 16th, but it meantime you can find them at your favorite Hero Arts retailer. 

I used Mum, Mum Stem and Rose stamp and cut sets for my card. Stamped the mums in intense black and watercolored using Daniel Smith paints. Once it was dry I stamped the sentiment and embossed with ultra fine embossing powder. I sprinkled some gold mica watercolor and added Champagne sequins, then adhered to black note card.

Here Arts: You're My Cup of Tea

Hi stampers!
I am back today with a second post. This time I have some Hero Arts goodness for you featuring the Woodland Tea Party stamp set. I stamped the images using Intense Black ink then hand cut them, because I didn't want the white border around them and used black pen to color the edges, so there was no white showing at all. I die cut the border from black card stock. 
Using mini blending tool and Soft Yellow, Butter Bar, Soft Pool and Tide Pool inks I did the background, once it was completely dry I stamped the sentiment. Then assembled my panel and adhered to black top folding note card. 



Visible Image and MISTI blog hop + Giveaway!

Celebrate Friends Stamp of Approval release

Hi everyone!
The Celebrate Friends Stamp of Approval is live for the general public. Since last night when it went on sale for the Stamp Nation members who attended t he PJ party, then for those on the wait list, only 30% of the boxes remain in stock. So hurry up! Head over Catherine Pooler's store to get yours!

In meantime here are few more cards I made using the collection!

For my first card I used the Celebrate die along with WooHoo and Punctuated Party set. I drew a circle with pencil and filled it with the smaller images from the sets. Then using coordinating copic markers to add little dots. When the ink was dry I erased the pencil marks. I die cut the Celebrate die few times and stacked them up and adhered to my panel. Stamped "let's" on black card stock with Versamark and embossed with White Embossing powder. Assembled the card. 


For my next card I used Punctuated party and created a pattern using the images from the set. Stamped the sentiment and adhered to a coral card base. 





Hero Arts: Color Layering Nasturtium-stamping on dark card stock

Hi Stampers!
Happy Tuesday! Today I am sharing few cards featuring the stamping on dark card stock technique. Little white ago I made a video with the same technique but different stamps and inks, so I have that one below if you are wondering how this technique is done in "real life" for your reference. 

For my cards today I used the Hero Arts Color Layering Nasturtium set along with Prayers, Hello and Thanks Stamp and Cut sets. I started by stamping the first layer of the stamp (flower and leaves) with Unicorn white ink, once it was completely dry I stamped it again with Soft Pink/Butter Bar ink. You will need to make sure that you don't remove your stamp from your MISTI before stamping the second time (when you use colored ink). 
After my panels were done, I stamped the sentiments using Versamark ink and embossed with White Embossing powder, then stamped the accompanying sentiment using pink/red inks. All supplies are linked at the bottom of this post.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope you are inspired to do something creative today
