When Onlinecardclasses.com announced a card class using one of my favorite stamp companies, I immediately jumped at the chance to participate!
Day 1 : Wood stamps
Unfortunately I do not own any woodblock stamps but this class has taught me to appreciate its “old world” craftsmanship.
Here is the first card I made using a technique Kristina Werner taught us – – stamping on a heat embossed element but using a clear stamp. I pulled out the February 2019 my monthly hero kit for this technique.
For this card I heat embossed using a clear stamp as a decor element on my card. This gave it that extra oomph! that it needed on an otherwise simple card. For the background I used one of the cling stamp add ons from the kit. It’s so beautiful!!
Here is a closer look at my card.
I am also entering this card in the A BLOG NAMED HERO March 2019 Challenge.
Day 2: Clear stamps
The second day focused on clear stamps, with emphasis on the color layering stamps of Hero Arts. Luckily, I had a few of those!
Here are the CAS cards I made for Day 2.
For these cards, I used the color layering Hibiscus and the color layering Sea stamps. I used the HA ombre inks to the layers of the sea. The background is the Abstract Graphic cover die also from Hero Arts.
Day 3: Background stamps
The third and final day, an off-set stamping technique was taught using background cling stamps. For this card, I used the Hero Arts Pearl Strings and Bubbles cling stamps. The underwater creatures and elements are from the HA MMH March 2019 kit.
