Summer Blooms: Leaving In Mistakes

Hey friends! I’m popping to share a card I created using the new Coloring Layering Summer Blooms stencil from Hero Arts Summer 2023 catalog release. I’m leaving in my mistakes today! Well…. the mistakes are not TOO crazy but it wasn’t what I was planning but I carried on!


You can watch the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel

Since I go through everything in the video, I will list down below the main supplies used.

I’m starting with the Color Layering Summer Blooms stencil. I’ll be ink blending it with the following inks from Hero Arts:

After ink blending, I stamped the Positive Script background over the top using Wet Cement Core ink.

Since the ink blending did not go as planned, I trimmed out the part I liked using a Hexagon Infinity die.

The sentiment I’m using is kind of DIY. I used part of a sentiment from the Everyday Sentiment set and created the rest with the Luggage Lowercase Alphabet die cut from Black Glitter Cardstock.

I also added a butterfly from the Delicate Butterfly Fancy die, cut from Gold Glitter cardstock.

Another thing I did in my video was use stamped/die cut pieces I already had done. So SHOP YOUR STASH!

To be honest, I don’t normally save extras because I forget about them or lose them but it so happens today, I found the sentiment already heat embossed and the butterfly already die cut. Definitely made the process a lot quicker!

So while this wasn’t exactly what I had planned, I sure do love it!

Hope you did too!

Be sure to also check out the Blog Hop happening now celebrating the new release! You can check that out HERE.

AND…… one more thing ! I’ll be teaching LIVE at the Mixed Media with Hero Arts Stamp Along! You can join us HERE!

Purchase just the class or pick up the bundle.

Don’t let the word “mixed media” scare you. It’s going to be a ton of fun and you will learn soooo many techniques!

Thanks for stopping by!
