Hero Arts | Color Layering Water Lilies – Thinking of You Card

Hello! I’ve been playing with my Hero Arts stamps – stamping and trying out some of my new sets and simply enjoying the process and I made this simple Thinking of you card featuring Color Layering Water Lilies stamp set.

CARD DETAILS

I knew I wanted to create a unique background for this project and I wanted it to be a bit dimensional, too. So I started by applying gold glimmer paste by Tonic Studios through the Abstract Waves stencil. I had very little paste left in my jar, enough to create only a partial print.

Instead of using white cardstock for my background (I was running very low on white at the moment so I challenged myself to use other colors) I used Simon’s Fog. I was debating whether I should use gold or silver glimmer paste, but because I wanted this card to be more warm rather than cold, I used gold and saved silver for another project.

I set my background aside and started working on my flowers (I did use my heat tool later to speed up the drying time – I kept it moving not to overheat the paste and prevent it from bubbling up).

I used Hero Arts suggested ink color to stamp flowers – Water Lilies Layering set (or Soft Pink, Bubble Gum, Red Royal and Butter Bar). I used my mini MISTI to help align and double stamp most of these images.

To stamp leaves I used Lime Green and Moss colors.

There are coordinating dies available for this set, so I used them and cut my flowers and leaves out in my Platinum 6″ die cutting and embossing machine.

I foam mounted my glimmer paste background onto an A2 top folding card base using fun foam and started adhering flowers and leaves on top creating a floral cluster. I used foam adhesive and glue to create different levels of height.

I also heat embossed Thinking Of You sentiment in gold embossing powder (I did use gray ink first as I thought it would be a good match to my cardstock color, but decided I needed to add a bit more gold) and foam mounted sentiment strip onto my card. Lastly, I added several white enamel dots using Nuvo Crystal Drops in White.
