It’s very helpful for me and my work, thank you for encouraging me.
Let’s go back to my card.
I began to stamp the strawberries on Hero Arts white cardstock using pale tomato ink for the first layer, then I used royal red ink for the second layer which is a shadow.
I got those colors in a ink set and in the July monthly kit, but while I was preparing this article, I find that if you prefer small ink cubes, you can find both in this set : rose petals dye cubes.
For the leaves part, I first used Key Lime Fizz reactive ink ( I got mine from the amazing kit from
July 2020, as there were 5 mini reactive ink cubes in the kit, it worth the value !) and then for the second leaves layer, I used Green apple reactive ink. If you like mini ink cubes, or your want to try the reactive inks (my favourite ones), Hero Arts just released the new sets of 4 mini ink cubes.
You have the 2 greens that I used here in this set : nature palette reactive inks .
The beautiful strawberries are done, as I didn’t have the strawberry frame cuts, I fussy cut them with a pair of scissors but it would have been better with the die. 🙂
For the second part, I die cut two circles with the circle infinity dies
One from Kiwi cardstock and a bigger one from Cranberry cardstock.
I glued the stawberries with some precision glue on the Kiwi cardstock and then glued it on the Cranberry cardstock.
To finish the card I cut and folded Hero Arts white cardstock to create my card base.
I stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set on the card using green apple reactive ink.
I glued the circle on my card and that’s it ! So fun to create and it’s a nice card to send to someone to create a smile. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed this time here and that you’ll have fun creating cards too.
