Welcome everyone! Thank you so much for stopping by.
Today I’m sharing a card created with the Cozy Town stamp set from Hero Arts. Sometimes small images can be tedious to color but I’m going to show you how I quickly colored up my houses to create a simple Christmas card.
I’m also sharing all of the steps in a video over on the Hero Arts Youtube channel.
I’m starting with a piece of Arctic card stock. I stamped the Hand Drawn Snowflakes in embossing ink and heat set with Sparkle embossing powder. This will add a subtle background to our card without taking away from the images which will be the focal point.
I choose a few houses and the set of pine trees from the Cozy Town stamp set and stamped them in Intensified Ink. Instead of coloring each house differently which can be tedious and time consuming, I used a C2 and C0 marker. By just using a couple neutral colors, I saved myself time and still had a little dimension by adding the shadows.
To add contrast to the card, I stamped a sentiment from the Cozy Town stamp set onto Cranberry card stock with Embossing Ink. Then heat embossed with Hero Arts White Detail embossing powder.
After trimming the sentiment down, I added to the front of the card panel with foam squares. I added the houses above the sentiment with a tape runner and the center house with a foam square.
My stamped card panel is added to a white card base using the Hero Hues Side Folded cards.
