Creating Backgrounds Using A Small Sized Stamp

Hello! I created this card to participate in Stay Crafty With Hero Arts Challenge. The challenge theme is Self Care, a project just for me. I don't think this challenge is limited to using Hero Arts products only but I did challenge myself to just use Hero Arts. I will never forget HA for these are the products that I started with as I began my journey to paper crafting.

I also created this card thinking that I would love to receive a card like this. With everything going on with life right now, this card can definitely lift my spirits especially if I receive it without expecting it.    A little bit or a lot of kindness will ease out any uncertainty that lies ahead.

Back to the project, I looked at my HA products and came up with this design. I am using a letter stamp from the Hero Arts Acts of Kindness stamp set. I stamped this on a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Neenah Solar White card stock using Memento Black Tuxedo ink. I stamped this randomly to cover the whole panel. I heat set this to dry. I colored the envelopes with Copic markers.

For the focal point I die cut a vellum with the HA Floral Stamp & Cut By Lia. I die cut a heart slight larger than this floral heart using HA Nesting Hearts die. I used a dark shiny pink card stock for this solid heart to layer on the back of the floral heart die cut.

For the sentiment, I heat embossed it on black card stock using HA White embossing powder. I snipped off the edges to create fish tail edged banner.

To put the card together, I embossed a black card stock with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles Wafer die. I die cut the letter background panel with an American Crafts scallop edged die. I adhered the vellum floral heart to the dark pink heart. I adhered this to the center of the letter stamped panel. I adhered the sentiment strip to the center of the floral heart. I added Nuvo and Stickles to the heart on the letters. I set this aside to dry.

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a SAFE, blessed, brilliant and creative day!
