Mixed Media Card: Peace

Hello everyone… It is almost a month Christmas has passed and we ended up with more Holiday themed stamps and dies. Today, I would love to share with you an idea you can stretch your Hero Arts Holiday stamps and dies to make non-Holiday cards.

There are many of Hero Arts Holiday stamps have sentiments that can be used on any occasions the Peace stamp and cut that I used today on my card. I am sharing this project also at a2z Scrapbooking blog.

My card today is also a mixed media card. I use the heat-embossing resist and watercoloring with Ken Oliver Color Bursts on this card.

To create the background I heat-embossed the Hero Arts – Vintage Rose Stem with Versamark ink pad and white embossing powder on a piece of watercolor paper. Then I heat set it with my craft heater.

I sprayed some water mix with Perfect Pearl powder on the paper and sprinkle the color burst powder on it. I dried in between adding colors until I am happy 🙂 Then on my craft mat, I sprinkle some of the Fuchsia, Lime Green, Orchid and Turquoise and sprayed with water to make watercolor paint. I painted the flowers and leaves with them.

Then I dried the whole panel with my craft heater. I stamped the Peace sentiment from Peace stamp & cut set on a piece of vellum with Versafine Onyx Black ink pad, sprinkled some clear embossing powder, then heat set it with craft heater.

I used black cardstock for the card base. Using lots of adhesive on the back of the watercolored panel, I added it on the card base, then I wrapped the vellum around the card using vellum adhesive. And I finished the card with some pearl gems.

a2z Scrapbooking store carries variety of Hero Arts products, including the ones I used on this project today. You can always send a special or custom request to the owner through the store message when you do not see any Hero Arts products that you like. They will get it for you. Also, you will find lots of on SALE/Retiring right now and get extra 15% more of your order of $25 or more (exclude shipping) by using this code: Helen15 (copy paste the code, sensitive case).

I hope this will give you and idea that you can actually use your Holiday stamps for non-Holiday cards 🙂 THANKS a lot for visiting me today and you all have a fabulous day!
