One Layer Holiday Cards
#1 - Using inks and stamps
For the ornament, I stamped the layering ornament in: Hero Arts Royal Red, Hero Arts Strawberry, and the final layer was stamped in VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder. The sentiment is from the same stamp set and stamped with VersaMark Ink and Recollections Snow White detail embossing powder.
#2: Colored Pencils
#3: Watercolor Painting
#4: Kitty in a stocking...Oh My!
As soon as I saw this Fluffy Stockings Stamp Set on the Hero Arts website, I had to have it. I first used Hero Arts clear embossing powder to heat emboss the Hero Arts Christmas Poster background stamp onto a Hero Arts kraft A2 sized card. I then stamped the kitty image onto Neenah Solar White cardstock using Hero Arts India Ink and then colored it in using my Copic Markers. I used Wink of Stella on the stocking to add shine. On the stocking cuff, I colored it with VersaMarker and then heat embossed Hero Arts White Puff powder to give the cuff a raised, puffy look. I die cut the sign from Cricut Labels and Such set, trimmed the edge with Krylon Gold Marker and heat embossed a sentiment from the same stamp set using WOW gold embossing powder.
When making multiple cards and a lot of them, here are a few takeaways I picked up from this process.
