Hero Arts Monarch Butterfly Die with Alcohol Inks

Howdy crafty folks! How is your summer going? Mine was super busy but now it is nice and quiet. I am ok with that!

I had some fun with alcohol inks on the silver sparkle paper recently and for today’s card I used the silver foil cardstock. These are both made to work with alcohol ink.

For the first step I took the silver foil finish cardstock and dropped 2 different pearl alcohol ink colors on it. I also used a thing that blows air to move the ink around along with adding some drops of alcohol blending solution. I was really happy with the way the paper looked. I cut out the butterfly using the Hero Arts Monarch Butterfly die which is available in the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy store. You could take out all the little pieces and have more of an outline butterfly but I was so happy with all the color I left them all in. I also die cut the sentiment from that same piece of paper.

For the background I used an embossing folder. I decided to use the debossed side of the paper for the background. I added some drops of the pearl alcohol ink onto the background panel. I attached this to the base of the card which is a dark purple and hard to see in the photo.

I then glued the butterfly and sentiment to the card.

Hero Arts Killer Messaged Mini Card Set

Hi Everyone, Kristina here with a mini card set showcasing the Hero Arts Killer Messages stamp set!
I bought this set mostly for the sentiments. I love the style, the design, and the sayings themselves!
They could be used with or without the other images in the set and they are nice bold stamps.

Here they are in action!

I wanted to make some water-ish backgrounds to go with the shark/whale, so I went with alcohol inks and made 4 different combos using the colors I had on hand. I used ranger glossy paper that I had die cut into little scallop squares, and dropped on my alcohol ink / blending solution and moved it all around until I got the look desired.

Once they had fully dried and treated them generously with my EK Success Powder tool before embossing the images and sentiments with Versa Mark and Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.

I cut the back card panel from the same die and adhered to two together at the top, with a score line for opening. These little note cards measure 3.5×3.5, which I’ll make custom envelopes for, and send off to my friends just for little pick me ups!
