Watercolor and Floral Hero Arts Die

Aloha and happy Thursday friends!  Have you got your hands on the latest Hero Arts products for 2017?  You can find most of them in the a2z Scrapbooking store!  I snagged the fabulous Hero Arts Floral Border with Frame Fancy Die  which die cuts a BEAUTIFUL oval shaped border with pretty leaves, flowers, and even sweet little butterflies!  Check it out…


I was going to keep it simple and just die cut from white cardstock, but I had my Derwent Watercolor Pencils out and was in the mood to color!


The blue background was created with Distress Inks in Tumbled Glass, Salty Ocean and Mermaid Lagoon.  I then stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Birthday Messages in Hero Arts White Embossing Powder.  I wanted a little more dimension and used a coat of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Gloss White to accentuate the handwritten look.

For the final touch I decided to get fancy and flicked on some Finetec Gold paint for a touch of shimmer.

The die is really gorgeous and you can check out my Instagram @stampnhi for a different look using the die.  I can definitely see myself using this one a lot!  Perfect for any occasion!!

Simple Masking for the February Challenge

Hero Arts Layering Florals
This months challenge theme is masking so I thought I’d share some super simple masking techniques that DON’T require masking paper or any special supplies. You can use simple copy paper or post-it notes!

All you need is some standard shape dies and something to create the mask.
For the card on the right I die cut a small oval out of a full adhesive post-it, placed in on the card front, did a little ink blending before repeat stamping floral images around the mask!

For the 2nd card, I cut a piece of copy paper to 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 and cut an oval out of the center to create a mask, and repeat stamped floral images on the inside the time, creating a background.

Now, I’d love to see what you come up with! Link it up into our February challenge for
your chance at a $25 gift card to the store!
