Hero Arts' Succulent Bouquet...again
Hero Arts' Succulent Bouquet... again
Sometimes there is a set that you know will get a lot of love and attention in your crafting, and Hero Arts' Succulent Bouquet is one of those sets for me. I have posted a few projects that I have made using this stamp and die set, and I can see myself using it more and more. I can see it as part of a more masculine card as well as my more usual sparkly/glittery/feminine/bright color cards--it is very versatile. I turned to this set again to make a card for a couple of challenges this week: Sunday Stamps Challenge #261 and Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #410.
In addition to Hero Art's Succulent Bouquet set, this card also features A Colorful Life's Dashing Circles Stencil, Just Squeezed Shimmering Bliss and Esmeralda Green Tonic Nuvo Glimmer Paste (which seems to have been discontinued).
To make the card, I die cut a piece of cardstock with the second-largest die from Gina K's Master Layout 2 die set and sprayed it generously with the Just Squeezed spray and set it aside to dry.
I then stamped the Succulent Bouquet image on white cardstock with Twilight VersaFine Clair and then heat embossed with Ranger's Holographic heat embossing powder. I then colored in the image with orange, light blue, teal and gray Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I added some sparkle over part of the image with my Gelly Roll pen. I die cut the image and an additional 2 pieces of scrap cardstock and glued the layers together for dimension and strength.
that the orange-sprayed background had dried, I used my Dashing Circle
stencil to add the Esmeralda Green Tonic Nuvo Glimmer Paste and then set
it aside to dry.
Once the background dried, I assembled the card. I used some liquid glue to attach the succulent bouquet image to the orange and teal background panel and then added some orange gems from Honey Bee Stamps to the panel as well. Foam tape was used to attach the orange background panel to a white card base.
