Hero Arts stamps were used in a couple of different ways on this whimsical layout by Danielle Quarmby. First, she stamped the 'Indie Bloom Star Blooms' design on two different patterned papers, one time using black ink and the other using a teal. Both pieces were then coloured with water-soluble crayons before being layered over the background of the layout. Gesso, impasto and spray inks were used to create an artistic background, blending over and around the stamped pieces of patterned paper.
A second stamp design, 'Indie Bloom Butterflies & Wild Flowers', was then added to the page once the gesso and ink were dry. In addition to the other elements layered around the page, they created a nature-filled theme with the grassy strands and small butterflies. Danielle, who doesn't usually think of herself as a stamper, was surprised at how much she enjoyed using the Hero Arts stamps to add a unique feel to her project.
Can you put up with Louise blithering on again on how wonderful Hero Arts Stamps are for your layouts???? LOL. Take it from us here at Aussie Scrap Source, she loves them!! Louise has posted before about their versatility, and with this layout it is proved once again. Louise has taken a Christmas themed stamp set, and used it to showcase a photo of her gorgeous young friend Jessica frolicking in a field of flowering Canola.
Jennifer McGuire is a master of stamping and cardmaking and we’re always thrilled to be able to share her projects on the Aussie blog. She has created all of the above different looks with the same Indie Bloom ‘Butterflies and Wild Flowers’ stamp, showing just how versatile a single image can be.
To create the stunning flower that features on her card design, Dawn McVey used 3 different flowers from Hero Arts/Basic Grey's Luscious Bold Flowers stamp set and stamped each layer on white card before cutting each flower out and inking the edges with distress ink. Each layer was adhered with foam adhesive for lots of dimension.
Nichol Magouirk created this adorable card using Hero Arts' In the Garden stamp, stamping with a glue pad and then adding flocking powder to show off the design.
Here Shari Carroll has used some of the Basic Grey Hero Arts stamps in combination with Basic Grey patterned papers to create a cheerful friendship card!
