Hey friends, Jessica here with a fun love-themed card featuring lots of products from Hero Arts! It would be perfect for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, or just to tell someone how much you care!
This was a really fun card to create and my inspiration came from crafty organization!….I’ve spent the last few days organizing and swatching all of my ink pads. When I got to my ombre inks my swatch stamp wasn’t big enough to give me a good color representation so I swiped them on larger pieces of cardstock instead. I practiced swiping the ink pad on scrap paper to make sure I was getting nice even coverage and loved the look so much that I used it as inspiration for my card!
I started off by stamping the line of hearts in a random pattern and heat-embossed them with clear powder. I used my MISTI to help me keep the hearts in a straight line. Next I swiped my pink to red ombre ink pad across the panel. I intentionally pressed hard at the start and lightened the pressure as I swiped. I also did a second slightly offset swipe to get a nice blend of colors. I used a paper towel to wipe the excess ink off of the embossing which left the hearts nice and white before flicking some gold spray across the panel.
I trimmed the panel down to get a nice clean inked edge and adhered it to red cardstock. Then I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of vellum and heat-embossed it with gold tinsel embossing powder. I cut the vellum into a fishtail banner and adhered it to the card with vellum tape. Finally I added some red and gold enamel dots and hearts for a little dimension and sparkle!
