Merry Christmas

My Monthly Hero October 2015 by Jayne Nelson for Hero Arts

I am so excited about the My Monthly Hero stamp kit program launching on October 5th! The first monthly stamp kit includes a gorgeous set of layered poinsettia stamps, layered leaves, and two lovely sentiments! The stamps are perfectly sized for holiday cards and gift tags, too!

Just for fun, I created a card using every stamp included in the stamp set … two sentiments, a small and large layered poinsettia, three different layered leaves, and two layered floral centers. I also used all five ink colors, three reds and two greens. I started by drawing very light diagonal lines across a panel of Snow Layering Paper and then repeatedly stamped a sentiment along the guidelines. After the ink dried, I erased the lines and adhered the stamped panel to a card that I made from a piece of Red Layering Paper.

I stamped the second sentiment on a tag shaped piece of cardstock with Versamark ink and then heat embossed the greeting with White embossing powder. Using the new, custom ink colors, I stamped both poinsettia images with a few leaves and then fussy cut around each flower. I adhered the flowers and the tag to the card with foam tape. To finish, I tied a twine bow through the tag and for a hint of shine, I added three green gems to the card.

Wishing you well,
