Hero Arts Postage Stamp Inspired Cards

by | Aug 26, 2019 | Blog, Happy Thoughts, Hero Arts, Ink Blending, Video Tutorial

Hi there, crafty friends! Today I am sharing a couple of postage stamp inspired projects. One is featured on my blog here and the other is over on the Hero Arts blog with a video tutorial. The video features the card found there, but can certainly be applied to create the project I am featuring here, as well. (Links to both near bottom of post.)

I was inspired to create these projects by the postage style images included in the Stamped Just For You clear stamp set. It is super fun with stampy images and a load of inky sentiments!

Recreate this card by popping a Postage Stamp Infinity die cut in Dove White cardstock onto a Dove White top folding card base with dimensional adhesive. Die cut an Infinity Heart into a slightly smaller rectangle. Crimson ink blend a piece of cardstock a smidge larger than the heart opening. Blend dark and the bottom, up to white.

Stamp sentiment in Intens-ified Black ink near bottom of rectangle and then pop, again with dimensional adhesive, onto card. Die cut Azalea Infinity Heart and pop into place. Coat Azalea heart with a clear sparkle pen and then with a Crystal Clear Lacquer pen for a glassy finish.

This project and envelope, with a video tutorial, is up on the Hero Arts blog HERE featuring many of the same items in this post. I’ve also used the Luggage Tag Alphabet and inks in shades Dandelion, Deep Ocean and Orchid

Thank you for spending a few minutes with me today, and a big crafty hug to those who choose to shop my links. It isn’t much, but the amount doesn’t really matter. Link activity is a great indicator that the projects I am investing time and resources into is connecting with my audience and inspiring you to create. I appreciate you all! Happy crafting!

xo, Janette
