CAS design using Hero Arts’ So Sorry Stamp and Cut

Hi, Cindy here to share a CAS design using Hero Arts’ So Sorry Stamp and Cut set.  Even though this set was design for the Lasting Hearts effort, it is really versatile and you could use it for many occasions.  I did a card that could fit any of the following categories:  friendship/sympathy/everyday hello.




My process:

  • Use pencil and lightly mark the vertical center line and a horizontal line 1 inch about the bottom edge of white card base.
  • Stamp the small string of hearts from the So Sorry Stamp and Cut set using Hero Art Ombre Ink: Butter to Orange along the horizontal line.
  • Stamp the rest of the pattern above the first stamped line.  Let ink dry.  Gently remove the pencil mark with an eraser.
  • On water colour paper, dab Pale Tomato, Neon Pink, Neon Orange ink randomly and spritz with Perfect Pearl solution to create a watercolour look.  Once it’s dried, add Pearl acrylic paint on selected parts, let dry.  Press Ombre Ink (Butter to Orange) ink pad all over and let dry.  Die cut using the large heart shape die from the So Sorry Stamp and Cut set, then use one of the smaller heart shape dies  from the same set to create the negative space as shown.
  • Stamp sentiment using Hero Art Ombre Ink: Butter to Orange, heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
  • Adhere die cut heart with form adhesive.

A Fall Muse – Shaker Card

So I’m walking through Kroger the other day, getting some groceries, when out of the corner of my eye
I see the most gorgeous display of this68627944945466pNow, I didn’t need coffee, wasn’t out. Normally wouldn’t spend this much.
But I bought it. Because it was pretty. Props to Starbucks packaging department.
On a side not it was darn good coffee, but I digress.

So as I’m staring at my overpriced coffee box waiting for the first cup to brew I thought.
Well, that would make a pretty card! Then this happened.

Fall Shaker Card Hero Arts
The first task was finding a medium that would stamp well and onto dark cardstock.
After trying several things I landed on Mementoluxe Pigment ink.

Then I needed a good stamp set to try to recreate the pattern on the box and my
Hero Arts Flower Garden set. You could easily recreate this for any season and with other great stamp
sets such as the Let Love Grow layering set, Happy Day Flowers set, or for Christmas the Build a Wreath

To make my window I started with an oval spellbinders die just to trace the shape in pencil.
Using that as a guide I stamped my assorted flower images, and then used a craft knife to cut out the window.

My shaker pocket was assembled with the Fuse Tool and prior to filling, I used some red Stayzon ink
to stamp “Fall” under where my Happy die cut would go. I adhere my pocket with some Tombo Xtreme and mounted
it onto a shade lighter cardstock base and glued on my Happy sentiment.
