The Most Wonderful Time – Hero Arts Holiday Card

Hero Arts The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

 

Hi Friends! Back today with more Holiday inspiration. Winter will be here before you know it so keep cranking out those Christmas cards! I really wanted to use this gorgeous sentiment stamp. I don’t usually buy wood block stamps, but I had to have this one.

For my background, I repeatedly stamps holly from the Hero Arts Color Layering Holly set, using gold embossing for the final layer, and outlining in a very light blue.

For my sentiment I used a stamp-a-majig to position and stamp in versamark ink, before heat embossing with white embossing powder. Lastly, I mounted everything on same dark red cardstock.

Color Layering with Hero Arts Holly and Snowflakes

Hi Everyone! Kristina here today playing with some goodies from the Hero Arts Holiday Release!

Hero Arts Snowflakes and Holly

I started but cutting the Hero Arts Snowflake Confetti die from Neenah solar white cardstock, and trimming it down by 1/8″ on all sides. I wanted some blue wintry contrast, so I mounted it on some blue bazzil cardstock.

Next I stamped two of each stamp from the Hero Arts Color Layering Holly stamp set. For the leaves, I stamped the first layer in Hero Arts Green Hills ink, the second in Lime Green, and the last layer in Cup of Joe. I cut all the images out using my Brother Scan N Cut, but you can also get the coordinating dies.

To finish the card I got everything set up where I wanted it, and used Press N Seal to hold it all in place while I slowly adhered each piece, more on this technique from Laurie Willison / Jennifer McGuire on her blog here.

After everything was assembled, I stamped my sentiment in Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and embellished with some sequins, and the confetti from the snowflake die.
