Cards Distress Spray Stains Hero Arts Honey Bee Stamps

Hero Arts/Honey Bee Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop

Welcome everyone! I’m excited to be a part of the Hero Arts & Honey Bee Stamps Collaboration Blog Hop. We are sharing inspiration today using the new stamp set You Are Amazing! Hold on to your hats and maybe grab your sunglasses for this one.

I’ve been playing a lot with Distress Spray Stains and this is a background I created that I thought would be great for this stamp set.

Along my journey, I’ve learned that the Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock works the best. It can really hold up to the amount of liquid I apply.

I heat embossed the image and sentiment from the set You Are Amazing in white embossing powder. I make sure to prep the panel really well with an anti-static powder tool so the embossing powder won’t catch everywhere.

There are so many encouraging sentiments on this set that it was hard to pick.

I made a DIY ink pads using baby wipes and Hero Arts Liquid Watercolors.

I stamped the heart image with my DIY ink pad onto white 110 lb cardstock.

Super cool right?!
