Hello everyone!! Kymona here from Kreative Kymona, with a fabulous Thank you card, that combines two Hero Arts products, which is what our current challenge is all about!!
Guess what I’m using, the same stamps that I used on my last project. I love these stamp sets and I wanted to show you a different way you can use the same stamps.
The difference this time is I’m not coloring the flower, I’m coloring the card stock to match my flower. Yes, color your cardstock!! I love this technique.
Take a look:
(Sorry for the blurriness, I was hand holding the camera and shaking was inevitable.)
Whenever I don’t have matching cardstock to go with my inks, I create it myself by coloring the white cardstock with that color ink. In this case, Hero Arts Orange Soda.
Now take a look at the card I created:
I needed that cardstock to match the edges of my flowers. Now are you wondering how I was able to get my flower to have a darker edge. Well, this technique isn’t new, its the Rock n’ Roll.
For the card base, I stamped the flower with Hero Arts Soft Granite Ink to cover the entire card front.
I stamped the flower on the white cardstock a couple of times and layered it on top of my created Orange Soda cardstock.
I stamped an extra flower, fussy cut it outs and adhered it to the front white card panel with foam adhesive.
I stamped the sentiment using the same Rock n’ Roll technique as well to keep everything constant.
I added Hero Arts Diamond Gems to the center of all of my flowers. I also added Clear Wink of Stella to the cut out flower.
There you have it. The same supplies-different card!
What do you think? I hope you decide to give these techniques a try!
