I, just like everyone else, have been inspired by some recent ombre shading using a stencil inspired by Kristina Werner and Jennifer McGuire (just search YouTube, you’ll find their videos. :D). I used some MFT Steel Gray card stock as my base and sponged on the gray/black inks in THIS set over the Bold Floral stencil. I die cut the LOVE multiple times from Hero Arts red card stock and layered together; sponged on some Unicorn ink on the top portion of the top LOVE word and once dry, coated in glossy accents. I embossed the small sentiment on vellum, adhered it all together on a red card base and added a black enamel heart.

Just saying’

Merry and Bright Hero Arts
I never get all of my holiday cards done in time, so the new Hero Arts release was a great
excuse to start now! And why not start with a shaker card!

This card was super fun, and fairly simple, here’s what I did

Stamp & Emboss background onto red cardstock (4 1/8 x 5 3/8)
Cut out circle window for shaker card with circle die
Create frame with scallop circle die & above circle die in center
Create shaker using your favorite shaker method, I use the Fuse tool
Before filling, Stamp sentiment in White Stayzon ink
Fill and secure shaker pocked to front card panel
Adhere front card panel to main card base (4 1/4 x 5 1/2)

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.
