How To Make An Angle Flap Card--A Blog Named Hero August "Stretch Your Stamp" Challenge!
(8/30/2019 Update: Here's a new YouTube tutorial!!) The video link and supplies are linked below:) This also features Hero Arts stamps and dies.
Hope you are enjoying what is left of Summer! My pneumonia is slowly going away. I promise to get some fun YouTube tutorials up soon!
Fall will be here before you know it, so I decided to pull out some Fall colors of Distress Oxides and my Hero Arts "Grateful Leaves" stamp set. (The supplies are linked (afil) below. I really appreciate it when you use them and the links on the right side:) Thank you!!!)
This month's "A Blog Named Hero" Challenge" is to Stretch Your Stamps! This leaves set is a color layering one, but I only used the "bottom" one (without any detail.) I used several Distress Oxides and inks, by applying and blending them with daubers on my stamp to get a "blendy" look. This was on watercolor paper as I originally intended to watercolor.
Then I sprayed with Shimmer Mist and that kinda made the background "fade back." I flicked gold ink to liven it up a bit. I used coordinating card stock. The base is cut from an 8.5 x 11" sheet on the diagonal. Next, I scored one corner at 4.25 and the opposite at 5.5"
I used a stitched rectangle die to cut the orange mat, cut on diagonal and adhered to base. Then used a smaller stitched rectangle to cut background. I cut that on the diagonal and adhered.
Next I used a Pretty Pink Posh stitched leaf die in the card base color, then daubed on some gold and red ink. I stamped the sentiment in red.
I hope you will join the challenge and maybe win a prize in the drawing!
Here are the supplies I used:
