How-to video: Three artsy cards

Happy Sunday everyone!

Have you all seen the new Hero Arts collection “Stamp your story”? Love it, it’s so artsy and you can use it not only on your art journals but on cards too. Yesterday, I’ve been playing with my new Hero Arts goodies and here are the cards I came up with!

You can see a better photo of each card below

CARD #1: “Thinking of you”

Simple stamping and watercoloring. This is a quick and easy to replicate card. All you need to do is change the sentiments or the color of the flower and you have a set of cards in no time.

CARD #2: “You color my world”

This is a another quick card. You just need to choose all the rainbow colors out of your ink pads and you are ready to go. This is another quick and easy design that is great to mass produce. Make a production line. Put all your cards in an row and just stamp every color to every card before you go to the next. I think the design is versatile and can be used with any sentiment.

CARD #3: “Happy life”

Now this is a card for that crafty friend of yours! Not easy to replicate but super fun to create!

Thank you all for visiting today! Have a great and creative day!

    What fun! I am a huge Hero Arts fan…fun for me to see what you did here. I’m all proud of myself because I used all Hero Arts products on a Project Life scrapbook layout recently…it was so much fun!
    But back to you….love these 3 cards…love the new artsy look to the stamps they’ve come out with and you did, as usual, wonderful cards with your things. Always enjoy my Sunday morning cup of coffee with a spoonful of Vicky added to it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Once again you take my breath way with your creative talent. Do you just look at a stamp set and see the design or do you have a pattern that you look at and go I have the perfect stamp for that? thank you for being inspiring to all of us up and coming creative types.

      hi Heidi may,
      what I do is the first one! I look at the stamp and go from there. I usually keep my desk clean and have only a new stamp set in front of me. After staring at it for a couple of minutes everything comes together. I have the general idea on my mind before I start shooting the video. Nothing comes as easy as it looks in the video. Remember, video editing makes everything look flawless but it’s not! LOL!

    Awesome, as usual. Love the masking technique-must try that this week! And the little ‘artsy’ flower is just too cute. Have a great week. TFS.
