Remembrance Day card using Hero Arts Layering Poppy

7 Comments

Hello everyone, it’s Erica on the blog today with a card inspired by the British Remembrance Sunday’s red poppy. Remembrance Sunday is held on the closest Sunday to the 11th in the month of November and is the British Memorial Day. I’ve just realised I’m a month early but oh well, let’s call it ‘extra gratitude’ given the tumultuous events of the world recently.

The Hero Arts Color Layering Poppy with the Poppy Layering Ink Cubes are a match made in heaven, which those Hero Arts peeps planned beautifully. Sneaky indeed!

The first thing I did, which is what I always do with a new layering stamp, is to go nuts with stamping. Over and over again! Usually I’m trying different ink colours but as these are perfectly matched there is no guessing game, leaving you with more stamping time.

I ended up with something like 15 poppies in different sizes after using the Hero Arts Color Layering Poppy Frame Cuts. I never have claimed to be able to rein myself in…. Anyway, setting all my poppies aside I started on a background and wanted to keep it quite simple to make sure the poppies are the focus. On an A2 card sized water card panel I swished some green water colours around, you can use Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Twisted Citron or Hero Arts Green Apple Hybrid Ink if you don’t have any water colours. I also added a few stems in green ink.

On a small banner, I heat embossed one of the sentiment from the stamp set ‘heartfelt thanks’ in gold embossing powder. There is this one Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder  and if you don’t have a heat gun, here is a link to one in the shop. I thought the sentiment was pretty perfect as this is a card is for all those who have served and given the ultimate sacrifice for all of us and our freedom.

With that and one last thank you to everyone who’s been or is in service, I am so grateful for all you do and have done!
