Hero Arts | Color Layering Palm Trees 3 Ways. Video

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

The palm trees are very easy to align and depending on if you have or don’t have coordinating dies, there are a few ways you can stamp them. I used Lime GreenForever GreenSoft Brown and Cup o’ Joe inks for most of my stamping.

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

SHAKE YOUR PALM PALMS CARD

I white heat embossed a new Leafy Bold Prints background on Peony cardstock, stamped and die cut the palm trees to create a scene for my card. One of the sentiments in this set reads “Shake Your Palm Palms” and this gave me an idea to create shakeable palm trees. I used a mini wobble spring to attach additional leaf layers to my palm trees to make them shake or wobble.

It is an easy trick, yet your cards become interactive and instantly get that wow factor.

PALMTASTIC CARD

For my next card, I ink blended a sunset background using Hero Arts new Reactive Inks and also cloud dies from the Color Layering Sea & Sky set. I used Grape SlushThistleTaffy and Creamsicle ink colors and cloud masks to make this background. I also added a stamped palm tree.

I adhered two little banners around it that read “Thank You” and “Hello There” created using Hot Air Blooms set.

SENDING A BIT OF PARADISE

My last card idea for today features some different color combos. Even though the palm trees are green in nature it doesn’t mean we can’t stamp them in some other color on our cards. I’m a big fan of using different, non-typical color combos for my projects and for this card I picked Tide Pool and Mint Julep to Emerald Green Ombre ink. For this card, I stamped the top view as if you were looking down at the ground from the sky and you’d only see the leaves of the palm trees and not the tree trunks.

To create the top layers for the palm trees I used embossing powder in Brass. I love this trick, instead of using a darker color of ink I just heat emboss the top layer in a beautiful color of embossing powder.

Have fun stamping!

    1. Love that shake your palm palms card! Great for birthdays and graduations. Novel and so cute!

    1. The colors you blended for that sky … absolutely beautiful! Love that purple. And what a great idea to have the banners looking like they’re wrapped around the palm trees! Your description of the monkeys as “cheeky” … spot on!!! Thanks for the video, Yana. I’m not interested in layering stamps, but I sure do enjoy watching your videos using them. Lots of tips.

    1. Cute now I know how to use my dies keep the ideas coming Yana
