Stretching Your Hero Arts Holiday Stamp and Dies

4 Comments

Hello everyone…Helen is here today. Christmas has passed and we ended up with lots of new Holiday themed stamps and dies. Today, I would love to share with you an idea you can stretch your Hero Arts Holiday stamps and dies to make non-Holiday cards.

There are many of Hero Arts Holiday stamps have sentiments that can be used on any occasion like the Peace stamp and cut that I used today on my card.

My card today is also a mixed media card. I use the heat-embossing resist and watercoloring with Color Bursts on this card.

To create the background I heat-embossed the Hero Arts – Vintage Rose Stem with Versamark ink pad and white embossing powder on a piece of watercolor paper. Then I heat set it with my craft heater.

I sprayed some water mixed with Perfect Pearl powder on the paper and sprinklde the color burst powder on it. I dried in between adding colors until I was happy 🙂 Then on my craft mat, I sprinkled some of the Fuchsia, Lime Green, Orchid and Turquoise and sprayed with water to make watercolor paint. I painted the flowers and leaves with them.

Then I dried the whole panel with my craft heater. I stamped the Peace sentiment from Peace stamp & cut set on a piece of vellum with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad, sprinkled some clear embossing powder, then heat set it with craft heater.

I used black cardstock for the card base. Using lots of adhesive on the back of the watercolored panel, I added it on the card base, then I wrapped the vellum around the card using vellum adhesive.

I finished the card with some pearl gems.

I hope this will give you and idea that you can actually use your Holiday stamps for non-Holiday cards 🙂
