Video: Vineyard HeroScape | Color Layering With Yana Series

by Yana Smakula July 06, 2020 5 Comments

Hello, Hero Arts fans! Welcome back for another episode of the Color Layering video series!

In this video and episode, we are taking a closer look at the new Vineyard HeroScape stamp set.

Watch the video tutorial below to learn how I made the cards I'm sharing today.

If you’re having a problem viewing this video, please try watching it HERE in HD on YouTube.

The Vineyard HeroScape stamp set has 4 layers to stamp the vineyard scene. This set, like other HeroScape sets from Hero Arts, has additional imagery to help you build scenes and diversify the cards. There are also 4 sentiments included in this set to help you finish your cards.

Hero Arts is fantastic at offering coordinating dies, and this set is no exception. The set of dies that coordinate with the Vineyard set cuts out the vineyard scene, as well as all of the other images in this set, including tiny wine glass and wine bottle!

On the Hero Arts blog, you’ll be able to find HeroScape ink charts - these are very handy and have helpful ink color suggestions for stamping the HeroScape images. I encourage you to check those charts out.



I started by stamping images on the Hero Hues Dove White premium cardstock. I love this paper, it is very thick and perfect for stamping.

I stamped the following:

I love to use ombre inks for stamping solid images such as these as they give additional details with ease and make the images appear a lot more interesting.

I cut all of these images out using the coordinating dies. I also created sky panels for these cards using Mist cardstock. I trimmed each panel to 3 3/4 x 5”. A sentiment was picked for each card and I planned my scenes.

I combined these images with the images from the Mountains at the Lake stamp set. I seem to be using the images from this set for every HeroScape card I make lately! They are great scene building sets and add a ton of interest to a card.

Some simple ink blending was added to the sky to create clouds. I love to use Unicorn White pigment ink for this - and I have shared this technique in my previous videos. You simply dab the white ink onto the panel creating fluffy clouds. If you can, use various size ink blending tools, for various size clouds. I prefer to use the edge of the tool so that I’m adding semi-circles to my background and not full circles as you would if you dab the entire ink tool on the paper.

Next, I used my Hero Hues side folded cards - I love using those for my cards and just foam mounted my panels onto the cards.

I love to mix and match my HeroScape sets, so I added a partial Lavender Field die-cut to one of the cards. You can add other fields like this, not just the lavender field, it can be a tulip or a sunflower field.

I hope this video has given you some stamping ideas to try with your color layering stamp set from Hero Arts.

Have fun stamping!

I don’t know when it happened, but I have not purchased any die cuts since there is a lack of color around the cut piece. Another words, I don’t care for the white framing around the cuts. I just don’t like the look, I think it looks sloppy.

Oh wow ! I love Yana’s card. She is a pro of colours, how to use some colors which match together and make a wow effect.
Thanks for sharing. Love the HeroScape collection. Layering stamps are my favourite ones in general. Yours are stunning. <3
