September My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #7 + Giveaway! | Hero Arts


September, 04, 2017

Hello, we are back with another Countdown to Creativity post before launching our September My Monthly Hero Kit and add-ons on Tuesday, September 5th at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We'll be giving away one kit tomorrow morning, before the kit launches, so be sure to comment on every Countdown post! Now, join Yana as she shares a simple stamped background card created with an optional, add-on stamp.

I adore creating my own backgrounds using small individual stamps so to create a background for this card I used little leaf and branch images from the CM203 Color Layering Thanksgiving set, which is an add-on set for this month's kit.

Thanks For Being You Card by Yana Smakula for Hero ArtsI mounted all 3 images onto a clear block at once and used Cup O' Joe ink color for my stamping. I stamped images repeatedly rotating the block every time I made an impression to make this pattern appear random. Next, I added Pumpkin Pie stamped berries (I used tiny circle images from my older Hero sets). 

Thanks For Being You Card by Yana Smakula for Hero ArtsNext, I stamped "Thanks" using the same Pumpkin Pie and Cup O' Joe colors, foam mounted the stamped panel onto the card and added white heat embossed "For Being You" on top.

I love the font on the Thanksgiving stamps. They’re so different and I always like different from everyone else. A beautiful card was made with them. Appreciate your sharing it with us!
