Sending Hugs – Hero Arts Color Laying Koala Bundle
Hello Everyone. Thank you for stopping by. Todays project is a Sending Hugs – Hero Arts Color Layering Koala Bundle.
Each bundle contains a Color Layering Stamp Set , co-ordinating dies and the necessary ink to layer the stamps with a successful outcome. In most cases four is the magic number. The four inks in this bundle are set AF381 Earth Neutrals Dye Ink (Charcoal, Cup O’ Joe, Wet Cement and Pumpkin Pie). Green Hills from my stash was added , any green would work.
Hero Arts Color Layering Koala Stamp Set and co-ordinating dies are available to purchase separately too. They are the same stamps and dies available in the combo pack. Hero Arts Color Layering Stamps have clear instructions on how to layer the stamps on the back of the stamp set packaging . In addition there are photos of each step and the inks used to achieve each step.
Making the Card:
Starting with the lightest ink and the solid stamp, working toward the darkest shade with the less area to stamp. The inks were used in this order: Wet Cement, Cup O’Joe and finally Charcoal.
The greenery was stamped starting with the branch with Cup O’ Joe and the greenery in Green Hills. These two stamps were stamped three times.
The images were cut out using the co-ordinating dies.
MFT Die-namics Stitched Tag-Corner Rectangle Stax cut a frame with Green Bazzill Premium Card Stock (counting from the smallest die, six and seven were used to make the frame). Reserving the negative space (centre) for the card. A 1/4 x 5-1/2″ strip was also cut and set aside for the inside panel.
A white card stock panel was cut to 4 x 5-1/2 ” for the card front . MFT Die-namics Stitched Tag-Corner Rectangle Stax die number six was used to cut the centre of the panel. This will be used later.
A white Card Stock card base was cut to form a side fold landscape card 11 x 4- 1/2 ” and scored at 5-1/2 ” . Be Creative Tape 5 mm was applied to top and bottom of the card front. Nuvo Pure Sheen Glitter , Green Meadow was burnished into the tape. Removing any excess with a fine brush.
Onto the card front panel. The Tag-Corner frame is adhered to the outside of the the die cut centre, essentially framing the centre of the panel. The white panel is attached with Be Creative Tape 3mm between the Pure Sheen Glitter strips. Foam tape is applied to the white card stock centre and placed back into the front panel. Liquid adhesive is used to secure Bazzil Tone on Tone Polkadot frame centre to the popped up centre of the front panel.
Next the images are added to the popped up centre portion. The larger Koala is added to the right hand side with foam tape for added dimension, the smaller Koala is adhered with Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive below the ear of the larger Koala. Greenery is tucked into the larger Koala’s Hand. Two Greenery sprigs are attached to the bottom left hand side of the Bazzill Premium Card Stock.
Hero Arts Color Layering Koala Stamp Set ” Sending Hugs” stamp was inked with VersaMark Watermark Ink and stamp onto white card stock. Nuvo Embossing Powder, Hot Chocolate was sprinkled over and heat set. The sentiment strip was trimmed and added just below the larger Koala’s foot (bottom right hand side of the popped up green card stock centre )
Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive was applied to the bottom edge of the inside panel. The Bazzill strip that was reserved for later was attached over the liquid adhesive. The inside panel was attached to the inside card base.
Beads were added to the eyes of both Koalas . Nuvo Prickly Pear Sequins and Sparkling Crystals were layered onto the card front. Nuvo Glitter Gloss was applied to the greenery.
That completes this card. Until Next time – Karen xo
