Hero Arts Color Layering Stamps | Creating Backgrounds | 5 Card Examples

 

Hi everyone,

In today’s video and blog post, I’m sharing five cards featuring Hero Arts’ Color Layering Stamps. For these cards, I’m sharing several ways to incorporate subtle background techniques so that the stamped image remains the star of the card.

For the first card, I am using Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Butterfly stamp, set onto a lightly inked background.

For the Monarch Butterfly, I am using Hero Arts Bold ink in Summer Sky for the lightest shade, Indigo for the mid-shade and finally black dye ink for the outline and the darkest shade.

Hero Arts Color Layering Gold Fish Stamp combined with a Hero Arts Ring Bold Prints Background stamp handmade card.

For the second card, I decided to create a stamped background by using a Hero Arts Ring Bold Prints Background stamp with Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink. This background reminds me of sea bubbles and is paired perfectly with the Hero Arts Color Layering Gold Fish.

For the “Gold Fish” I used Altenew Crip Inks in Frosty Pink for the lightest shade, Coral Berry for the mid-shade and Grapevine for those small details in the darkest shade.

Hero Arts Color Layering Betta combined with a Hero Arts Ring Bold Prints Background Stamp handmade card.

For this card, I followed the same card design as the previous card, changing only the cardstock color for the background panel. This time I chose a teal cardstock and did some tone on tone stamping with the Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink.

To complete this card, I am using the Hero Arts Color Layering Betta Fish with Lawn Fawn dye inks in Narwhal for the outline, Wild Rose for the most solid stamp, and Lobster ink for all of the details.

Hero Arts Color Layering Rose Stamp combined with a Sunny Studio Dapper Diamonds Embossing Folder handmade card.

This was the most involved card out of all of the cards I made because I stamped out several colors of the Color Layering Rose by Hero Arts.

Yellow Rose: Altenew Crip inks in Buttercream (light), Warm Sunshine (medium) and Caramel Toffee (dark)
Pink Rose: Frosty Pink (light), Coral Berry (medium) and Ruby Red (dark)
Teal Rose: Lawn Fawn inks in Minty Fresh (light), Merman (medium) and Peacock (dark)
Purple Rose: Lawn Fawn inks in Fresh Lavender (light), Grape Soda (medium) and Juice Box (dark)

And for the last and final card for today, I am creating a little sea scene using a Hero Arts Reef Border and Fancy Frame Die.

After I die cut the Reef Border from Neenah 110 lb., I added several layers of cardstock to pop up the die cut and adhered it to an inked background.

To complete the ocean scene, I added the Color Layering Sea Turtle stamped in Lime Green, Green Hills and Forever Green Hero Arts Ink.

Pretty Pink Posh | Clean and Simple Strip Inlay Cards |

Hello everyone,

Today’s cards are all about clean and simple card designs. I’m incorporating a strip of ink blended inlaid cardstock in the cards today for a bit of color and a few adorable images to complete these cards.

Pretty Pink Posh Stamps with an ink blended inlaid strip on a clean and simple card design.

I die cut three panels of 110 lb. cardstock using a large stitched rectangle die and strips of Bristol smooth cardstock that I will use to ink blend some Distress Oxide inks.

Pretty Pink Posh Wild Roses stamp combined with Distress Oxides Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey inlaid strip on a clean and simple card design.

For the first card, I cut a vertical section out of the panel to create the space for a strip of cardstock to inlay. For this card, I combined Squeezed Lemonade and Wild Honey Distress Oxide inks and blended the inks on the Bristol smooth cardstock strip.

After coloring my images with Copic markers, I used the coordinating dies to die cut the images out. I arranged the flower images in the bottom left- hand corner and added the sentiment to complete this card.

Copic Color Combination

Flowers: RV04, RV02, RV00, RV0000, Y19, Y11, Y00
Leaves: G19, G17, YG07, YG05, YG03, YG01

The second card features the adorable little koala bears, which I colored with my Copic markers and used my ScanNCut to cut the image out.

The diagonal inlay strip for this card was created by ink blending Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkin and a little bit of Vintage Photo on the edges.

Pretty Pink Posh Koala Friends stamp combined with Distress Oxides Fossilized Amber, Carved Pumpkins and Vintage Photo inlaid strip on a clean and simple card design.

For the third and final card in this set, I used two images from Sea Friends and arranged my image elements horizontally across an ink blended inlay strip.
