Stepping up Sentiment Stamp Sets + Video

Hello there, crafty friends. I’m excited to share my first Hero Arts project as part of their creative team. I have two cards to share today that feature how to step up sentiment stamp sets…

You can watch the video on how these cards came together HERE or click on the video below…

For the first card…

I cut THIS die from masking paper. This way I can mask off the sentiment that I want to highlight. After I inked up THIS stamp set using Pool Party ink, I removed the masking strip and stamped the sentiments on an A2 sized piece of Deluxe Smooth White Cardstock. I temporarily taped that sentiment strips die on top but instead of cutting out the sentiments, I ran it through my die cut machine with an embossing mat to add texture and dimension. Next, I stamped the bear from THIS Winter Mail Critter stamp, colored it with Copic Markers, and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I adhered all the elements on to a note card created from Cherry cardstock. 

For the second card…

I did the same process for the background but this time I stamped on Peony cardstock using Taffy ink. I repeated the process and masked off the sentiment I wanted to highlight. I ink blended on top of the background using THIS Sun Background Stencil. I ran the stencil on top of the background through my die cut machine with an embossing mat to add dimension to the pattern. I stamped the house image from THIS Winter Town Cheer Stamp Set and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I added all the elements to a note card created from Pitch Black Cardstock.

I finished off the cards by adding a coat of Sparkle Clear Lacquer Pen and Crystal Clear Lacquer Pen for some sparkle and shine. 

I hope this video has inspired you to step up those sentiment stamp sets.

Thanks for spending some time here today. Happy crafting!
