Hello friends, happy Friday!
This month we’re focusing on using our favorite Hero Arts products, and so today I’m using one of my favorite Hero Arts products – their background dies. I took one of their newest background dies, and tried to use it as many ways as I could think of. Background dies are amazing but it can sometimes be hard to figure out how to use a background die, so let’s look at just some of the options.
First, let’s look at a 2 cards for 1 option, using the hearts infinity die set (another great product!) to cut out the background die to give some new shapes to the background. I did some watercolor on watercolor paper, then die cut using the background die, and then cut out the heart. I used the positive and negative pieces to make the following cards!
And then, to use the whole background die, you can use a more subtle color, and then use another image as a focal point.
And if you want to be super subtle, you can use it for a white on white background, and give some interest to a mostly white background.
And then, to break up the intense-ness of background dies, you can cut it up to get some white space in between. This one, I cut in the middle, and added some glitter paper and Nuvo Drops in the white space.
And then I played with some patterned paper, and it turned out really great! I would definitely recommend this die with patterned paper if you have any scraps you’d like to use.
I hope these inspired you on how to use background dies, and also for thinking about your favorite Hero Arts Products!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
