Hero Arts Hello in Pink to Red Ombre

Hi friends, welcome back!

I made this uber CAS (clean and simple) card – so quick, so easy and just think of all the color combos you can use! Wouldn’t a set of these cards in a variety of colors be a beautiful gift? Since we are using shades of red this month, I used two ink pads – Hero Arts Intense Black and Hero Arts Pink to Red Ombre. I very lightly sponged on some pink at the bottom and let it fade out towards the top.

I stamped random flowers and leaves from two stamp sets – For You Flower and You’re So Lovely. I used two layers of micropore tape for my baseline of stamping but some of the ink still seeped through; that’s okay, it’s handmade and not every single card can be perfection, RIGHT! I added a few pops of black to compliment the sentiment and finished it off with 3 enamel accents. So easy peasy!

CAS Watercolor Card ‘Thinking of You’

Hero Arts Yes Stamp and Cuts
Hi Everyone! Kristina here today with a super quick and simple watercolor card!
I started with a piece of ranger watercolor paper. Working on the smooth side (tape down) I wet the entire paper very generously. Next I used my prima watercolor pencils to add a very soft watercolor background. I pulled color directly off the pencil with my paint brush and painted it onto the paper. I heat set to dry, then added some random water droplets, which I sopped up with a dry cloth and heat set again. My stamped images are from the same set. Hero Arts “Yes” Stamp and Cuts. One stamped directly onto the water color paper, and the other cut out and popped up with foam tape.

There are a few days left to enter our CAS challenge for the month of July!
