Hero Arts Interlocking Gatefold Card w/ Diamond Dies and Layering Stencils!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s create an elegant Interlocking Gatefold card today using lots and lots of products from Hero Arts!

To get started, we can take the beautiful Hero Arts Color Layering Stencils – Tulip Bouquet Set. This set contains 4 layers of stencils so that we can easily do the coloring and shading with our blending brushes and ink pads!

Let’s grab a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth Cardstock to do our blending. We will be using the Hero Arts Small Blending Brushes for this stenciling process and the ink colors today will be using the Hero Arts Core Inks in Green Apple, Fresh Lawn, Pine, Dandelion, Butter Bar and Papaya. These colors will blend together beautifully! We can also quickly spatter these flowers with these same inks!

Now we can begin creating the interlocking mechanism for the front of the card. To do this we will use the fantastic Hero Arts – Infinity Diamond Dies. We will create a frame with these dies by using the largest die and the next smaller die and cut these out 3 times. By gluing the 3 diamonds together we will have a nice solid frame for the interlocking feature! We can also cut the tulips from the smaller diamond die, and this will fit perfectly inside the frame!

Next, we can get started building the card base for our gatefold card and cutting the layers for the card. I’ll show you all of the measurements for cutting and scoring in today’s video!

Now that we have our layering papers cut, we can start the stenciling on these layers. We will be using the Hero Arts – Stencil Square – Stripe! This is a stencil that can be used in a variety of ways but today we will do some simple stenciling using the Dandelion ink and then add ink around the edges with the Papaya ink.

Let’s glue the layers to the inside of the card base and front panels.

Now for the fun part…. let’s add the tulips on the card by gluing only the right-hand side of the diamond and gluing it to the right panel on the card. Next, we can place glue on only the left-hand side of the diamond frame and glue it to the left panel of the card. Be sure to line this up really well with the tulips that you have already glued down.

We can now stamp a few sentiments by using the Hero Arts – Togetherness Flower Bouquet Stamp Set. This set has some absolutely beautiful sentiments and script for all of your cards! y and add an elegant touch to the card!

Shaving Cream Marbling Technique to create Hero Arts Bulb Ornaments!

Hello and Welcome!!!

Watch video tutorial here!!!

Let’s get started by creating some beautiful marble backgrounds using some shaving cream…. yes shaving cream!!! If you have never done this before you are going to get a kick out of this fun and easy process. I’ll show you exactly what to do in today’s video. It’s a bit messy…. but lots of fun!

To do the marbling we will be using the Hero Arts Liquid Watercolor and the Glimmer Metallic Inks. These bottles have a dropper applicator so it will make this product very easy to use.

Now we can die cut some ornaments from this marble paper using the Hero Arts Infinity Dies – Bulb Ornaments in a few different sizes. This will give our ornaments a very unique look! We can use these same dies to die cut the topper in some pretty metallic silver cardstock.

Next, we will add a sentiment to each of the ornaments using the Peace, Love, and Joy from the Hero Arts Ornament Peek-a-boo Infinity Parts set. We will emboss these sentiments using some “Liquid Platinum” embossing powder.

Next, we can create the background for the card using the Hero Arts Bold Prints 6″x6″ – Starry Night Brushstroke stamp. We will ink it using a clear embossing ink and then we will emboss it using the Hero Arts – White Satin Pearl embossing powder. Then we will add some pretty ink around the edges using the Hero Hues Ink Cube in Summer Sky. Let’s also spatter this background with some white paint for a snowy effect!

Let’s also ink the edges of the ornaments using the Hero Hues Ink Cube in Cotton Candy! We can add some pretty blue twine to each ornament and pop up the ornaments with some foam adhesive squares.

Next, we will die cut a pretty branch to hang our ornaments using the Tim Holtz “Holiday Greens” die set. Let’s die cut several of these branches and then glue them together for added dimension! Now we can add some Hero Paste in White Pearl for a pearlized snowy look!

Let’s quickly assemble the card and add a few of the Hero Arts Hero Hues Clear Enamel Dots onto the background, tie a pretty bow and add a few gems to the branch for a beautiful sparkle!
