Greetings crafty friends! I am thrilled to share that I am a new Design Team Member for A Blog Named Hero, a dream come true. A little bit about me – I live in the midwest and have been having so much fun playing with paper and making and sharing cards! I have linked all of my channels and sites here: YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, and Blog. I would love to have you follow and subscribe.
The challenge this month is Anything Goes. Check out the deets here. Join in the fun and be eligible for one of two gift vouchers from our beloved sponsor!
I used the Die DI649 Leaves and Vines for the background on both cards. I’ll start with the Floral card.
The green background was created by ink blending Hero Arts inks: Green Hills, Green Apple, Lime Green and Fresh Lawn on a piece of white cardstock. After die cutting, I attached the green leaves to a white A2 card base. The flowers from CM372 Tropical Flowers were stamped in black ink and colored with Copics. I fussy cut out the images for layering.
The flowers were layered on the front, with a stamped Thank You from CM251 Hand Drawn Every Day Messages. One flower and leaf was attached to the strip for dimension. I did add two addition cardstock strips under the sentiment.
Check out the quick video for this card here:
The next card uses the same background die with a twist!
This card started with an alcohol ink base from my stash. I cut the Leaves and Vine Die 3 times from white cardstock and glued them together for dimension.
The sentiment was white heat embossed using a sentiment from the Tropical Flower Stamp set.
As you can see, I trimmed a few of the center leaves from the white die cut to allow the sentiment to show through prior to gluing to the alcohol base.
The last step was to mount on an A2 white cardbase.
