Hello, friends! Sharing the next episode from my monthly “Color Layering with Yana” series featuring Color Layering Iris from Hero Arts.

The Iris stamp set features a large beautiful iris flower, a leaf, and a stem. The flower and leaf have three layers each – an outline, a solid layer, and a detail. The stem has solid and outline layers.

Welcome back for another episode of the Color Layering with Yana video series! In each one of my monthly videos I explore different ink pad and embossing powder color options for Hero Arts Color Layering sets and will hopefully inspire you to stamp! These videos are published on Hero’s blog and Youtube channel on Mondays following the My Monthly Hero Blog Hops and I’m sharing them on my blog as well. 

VIDEO TUTORIAL

Watch my video tutorial below or on Youtube to learn how I made the cards I’m sharing today.

CARD DETAILS

These types of images are easiest to align when you stamp the outline first. I used a MISTI stamping tool to do my stamping because I’ll need several irises for the 3D decoupage technique.

I used the following ink colors for the stamping:

  • Black for the outline;
  • Fresh Peach and Ombré Light to Red Royal;
  • Soft Pink and Ombré Pink to Red;
  • Passion Flower and Ombré Hydrangea;
  • Lime Green and Forever Green.

Having stamped the flowers, leaves and also stems I cut them out with the help of coordinating dies. To create the 3D decoupage look you need to layer parts of the image over the original image with the help of foam adhesive. Looking at the iris, I see several ways I can cut it up and layer to have that beautiful dimensional effect.

Cutting it apart and layering also gives me a unique opportunity to create multi-colored irises, something that does exist in nature, but impossible to do, or rather very hard to do, when stamping. The two things you’ll need when doing the 3D Decoupage are a good pair of scissors to cut the image parts out and the foam adhesive, of course. You can go with just two layers, or you can go with three or even four layers if your image allows it. Doing three layers hit the sweet spot for the irises and so I made each with about three layers. I love how this allowed me to add more color and add more interest to my flowers without too much effort.

In regards to foam adhesive – it is best to use thin foam adhesive for projects like this unless you don’t plan to have too many layers, as adding a lot of layers using regular foam adhesive will result in a bulky die cut.

Cards with 3D decoupage are best hand-delivered or mailed in a box to preserve the 3D effect for the recipient.

To create a card and card front I dry embossed a sheet of Dove White cardstock with the help of the Graphic Deco stencil. I cut panel to 4 1/4 x 5 1/4” and adhered it to an A2 card base made from Pebble cardstock. Using glue I adhered flowers and leaves in place in the center of the background and used foam adhesive squares in a few spots to pop some of the elements on the card. I made sure not to add any more dimension overtop the existing 3D decoupage items.

The sentiment was heat embossed in white embossing powder on the same Pebble cardstock, cut to a skinny strip and foam mounted on the card. Lastly, I used Champagne sequins to dress this card up.
