Hero Arts September 2017 My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway

by May Park-

Welcome to the Hero Arts September 2017 My Monthly Hero Kit Blog Hop. If you came from the amazing llina’s blog, you are right on track! To celebrate a release of  September 2017 My Monthly Hero Kit, I created two cards with a stamped background.

For my first card, I created my own stamped background using the sunflower images from the main kit. I only used the bottom layer with non-traditional sunflower color to create my own unique look of the floral background.

FYI, I used the following ink colors: Raspberry Jam, Soft Pink, and Limestone. To add some details, I added some white dots on the center of each flower using a white gel pen. Then I filled in the gaps with some tiny dots using the Grapevine marker from Altenew Artist Markers Set A.

I stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts Thanksgiving Table Stamp Set on a piece of white cardstock with black ink then I drew some square frame around the sentiment with a black pen. I finished off my card by cutting out my sentiment and popped it up on the card front using foam tape.

For the second card, I stamped the vine image from Hero Arts Vine Pattern Bold Prints Stamp with Soft Brown ink on an A2 sized Earth Layering Paper.

Then I stamped the leaves from Hero Arts Color Layering Squirrel Stamp Set in soft brown. After adding some dots between the images, I added the sentiment to finish off my card.

    Very nice cards! I like that you creatively made the sunflowers non traditional colors, they look great. That vine looks super nice too. The more I see it used the more I like it.

    I love the background stamp. It is way to pretty to hide in the back, thanks for making it a focal point.

    May, both cards are just lovely, but I’m really in love with the color combo on your first one. Your dotting technique really adds to the design.

    Ahhhh, love May’s signature dotty background! I wish I had enough courage to try it, but I don’t know if I could get the spacing so even. Both cards are just terrific and I can’t possibly choose a favorite!
