Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Inlaid Die Cut

Howdy! I am here today with some shimmery butterflies. Oh wait that was last month. How about a birthday card for you!

Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch Clear Stamp

When I thought about making this card the inlay technique and using some of the Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Ink came to mind. So here we are.

For the butterflies I put some drops of the purple and the blue Hero Arts Glimmer Metallic Ink on a kraft sheet along with a tiny bit of gold. I spritzed the inks with water. I brushed the ink on paper and let it dry. Then I stamped the Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch on the metallic inks using just the detailed layer. I cut those out with the Hero Arts Color Layering Monarch matching die. Two butterflies were cut out of the white background paper so that I could inlay the purple and blue butterflies in those spaces. I just love the shimmery look of the metallic ink. The purple and blue come together in the pack.

For the flowers I mixed a little gold Glimmer Metallic ink with some Hero Arts Dandelion and Orange Liquid Watercolors. I painted that on paper and when it dried I stamped the flowers from the Color Layering Monarch stamp set. Then they were die cut.

The sentiment was die cut.

Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop with Nesting Tea Cup

Once again we are joining the Fall Coffee Lovers Bloghop, and we are a sponsor for the hop!

Today I have a fun card to share with you.  I used the Hero Arts Nesting Tea Cup Infinity Dies and created a faux shaker card using the inlaid die cutting technique.   A faux shaker card?!  Yes one without acetate nor sequins/beads/bits.

 

Instead of using sequins and beads, I placed a stamped panel instead in the area where the sequins would go.  So when the card is shake, the stamp panel shifts you see parts of the image only.  I have a small tutorial on my blog Escape To Stamping.  Take a look on how I put this card together.

The Nesting Tea Cup Dies are really fun.  I made a layered shaker card using the set, you could take a look here.  Besides using it all your coffee/tea/hot chocolate projects, the largest die is perfect for a shape card.   See this post.  Also I think this set would be perfect to make a mini book, a recipe book, perhaps cup shape ornaments?!  I’ve even made a charm for my planner, see this post.  Lots of possibilities!!  🙂  Check it out at the a2z Scrapbooking Etsy store.
