Floral Hello

Color Layering is a fun technique that lets you use inks to build your stamped images.
Today I'm sharing a card using Hero Arts Color Layering Graphic Flowers.

I grabbed a bunch of mid tone inks and stamped flowers in different shapes and colors,
and added a few leaves from the set.

Originally, I planned to make a one layer card, but decided at the last minute to
die cut the largest flower and pop it up for a bit of interest. I die cut the "hello" and stamped
the remainder of the sentiment. A few gemstones finished off the card.

Are You Playing Tic Tac Toe?

You have a few more days to enter Hero Arts Tic Tac Toe Challenge
and win a $30 gift voucher to the Hero Arts Online Store!

From the graphic I chose the vertical row on the left and made a shaped card.
I was a huge fan of shaped cards and every shape of Spellbinders was my best friend.

The background stamp is Lia Griffith's new woodgrain and I watercolored
the butterfly after gold embossing it.

To create a shaped card, cut an identical piece for the back and score about 1/2"
from one edge to create the "hinge". Apply adhesive above the score line and join
the two pieces together at the top. Your card should stand nicely.

And did you notice that I gave my Hero Arts gemstones some love?
They were the perfect touch of bling!

Visit the challenge gallery for inspiration and link up your project(s) by June 30th.

CAS(E) this Sketch 129

Here's CAS(E) this Sketch 129 brought to you by Michelle W.

Here's my take on it.

I was tempted to turn the sketch but stuck to the original with some dies
and a sentiment from My Favorite Things.

The watercolored, gold embossed feathers were sitting in my stash of die cuts
so I tied them together and adhered them to the card. The sentiment was gold
embossed and I rounded off the bottom of one corner. Done!

Visit CAS(E) this Sketch to see how my teammies interpreted the sketch
and join us if you can. Link up your project(s) by Thursday, July 2nd.
