Hero Arts | How to Layer Color Layering Poppy (& Mistakes in Cardmaking). Video

Hello, friends! Today I have the next episode from my monthly “Color Layering with Yana” series to share featuring some beautiful poppies from Hero Arts. As you look at my cards, chances are, you’ll notice that one of the cards has a big typo. Things happen. I didn’t notice the typo until is was way too late and haven’t had the chance to actually fix it on my project (heck, it even appeared like this on the Hero Arts blog!). But I wanted to acknowledge the fact that the typo is there 😀 . Happens to all of us, right? Tell me, what was the biggest mistake you’ve ever had on a handmade card?

The typo aside, here are the cards I made to share with you today using the Color Layering Poppy set.

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

CARDS DETAILS

When we think of poppies, we probably imagine beautiful red flowers. But poppies come in all sorts of colors, not necessarily red. You can easily use your other ink pad colors from Hero Arts to stamp poppies in yellow, pink and peach colors!

For my cards today I went with several Spring color combinations and very simple card layouts. I used:

I also tried using Orchid and Grape Juice inks, but these ended up being just a tad bit too dark for my taste so I didn’t use those flowers. All of the green pieces were stamped in Moss.

After stamping my images I used coordinating dies and cut them out in my die cutting machine. I kept my cards very simple.

For my first card I die-cut letters to spell “missing you” (alas, making the typo) using coordinating dies from the Luggage Tag Alphabet set; I cut them from white and black cardstock, layered and offset slightly.

For the background panel for this card and also one other card I used White Woodgrain Cardstock – it has a beautiful woodgrain texture and works really well for clean and simple cards. I added a sub sentiment that reads – “you are really the best“. I ink blended a piece of white paper using Rose Madder ink to have it match in color to the stamped poppies on my card and once it was dry I heat embossed a sentiment in white embossing powder. I also used sequins from the Champagne sequin mix and added a few here and there on this projects.

My card #2 features same poppies but on a stem this time – there are 2 stem images in this set and a coordinating die that will cut one of them out. I arranged them as if growing from the base of the case and added a beautiful sentiment heat embossed in gold over top.

For my last card for today I used one of the Hero Arts Woodgrain Envelopes, I actually cut it to use the paper as the card front.

I did that because I wanted to stamp a sentiment directly on the card background and had I used regular woodgrain cardstock it would not have looked good, as the texture on that paper is quite pronounced and it would have interfered with stamping. The texture on the envelopes is not as pronounced, so stamping on it wasn’t a problem.

I hope enjoyed this fresh look at the Color Layering Poppy stamp set and my card ideas today!

Have fun stamping!

    1. Yana these are so pretty and bright. I love everyone! I especially like these bright colors against the WHITE with a touch of black. So crisp and clean. I do have a question on the Missing You card ; … is the – I N G – in Missing intentionally rearranged – I G N- ? It still draws interest even if it was an ooops. Hugs

    1. WOW, gorgeous poppy florals. Thanks, Yana, for the excellent tutorial on layering. I know this will prove very helpful when I’m trying to get these layers lined up. I also loved that you showed your oops moments. We all have them.

    1. Lovely flowers that really pop. They even pop off the card – the black and white layering on the lettering is great. Thanks for such beautiful examples.
