Hero Arts | Color Layering With Yana Video Series – Color Layering Fox 4 Ways

Color Layering stamp sets from Hero Arts have been favorites of mine for years. I am always anxiously looking forward to a new release to see what new sets there are for us to play with (and I’m always amazed at the imagination and creativity of the illustrators behind these sets). They never disappoint!

That being said I’m very excited to introduce a new, special feature for Hero Arts blog and Youtube channel called “Color Layering with Yana”. In each one of my monthly videos I will explore different ink pad and embossing powder color options for Hero Arts Color Layering sets and will hopefully inspire you to stamp! These videos will be published on Hero’s blog and Youtube channel on Mondays following the My Monthly Hero Blog Hops and I’ll also be sharing these videos on my blog as well.

COLOR COMBO #1

Let’s start with Hero’s suggested color combo for this set which is Tangerine, Caramel and Black (please note, I am using Black as the 3rd color for every one of my combos today).

After stamping my fox onto white cardstock (I used my MISTI stamp positioner to help my align the layers) I cut it out with the help of coordinating dies in my Platinum die cutting & embossing machine and dressed up with the help of a bow tie stamped in Soft Brown ink.

To create a background for this card I Brass heat embossed Forest & Deer Bold Prints background onto brown cardstock, foam mounted panel onto an A2 white card base, foam mounted the fox, added “Hey Foxy” sentiment heat embossed in white and embellished my card using Sunshine Ombre sequins.

COLOR COMBO #2

To create the next card, Happy Fall, I used Ombré inks in Autumn and Sand to Cup O’ Joe as well as black. I love how much more detail I am able to get when using ombre inks – I love the added shading that my image gets.

Once again I cut the image out using a coordinating die, foam mounted my fox onto an A2 card base covered with woodgrain white cardstock, added a few Pumpkin stamped leaves and embellished with sequins. Very simple & easy to make Fall card.

COLOR COMBO #3

My color combo #3 included Wet Cement and Soft Granite to Black Ombré ink pads and is one of my favorites for this particular image. It’s a great combo for masculine cards, too.

I dry embossed a yellow cardstock panel with an Abstract Waves stencil and blended Caramel ink on top. Don’t know how to dry emboss with stencils? Watch this video.

Next I stamped Hello from the “Hello Stamp & Cut” set in black ink, foam mounted my fox, dressed him up in trendy glasses and embellished this card using same Sunshine sequins.

COLOR COMBO #4

My final color combo included Soft Brown and Cup O’ Joe inks. To make this card I freehand cut a mask, blended Soft Sky ink to create a snowy hill and foam mounted an adult and baby fox.

I saved best for last as this card turned out to be my favorite! I also embellished it using Ombre Ocean Sequins. Perfectly simple card with Winter!
