(a2z scrapbooking} Hero Arts Color Layering Butterflies

Hi Friends! Yesterday I was on the a2zs Scrapbooking Blog playing with my new set of Hero Arts Color Layering Butterfly Stamps. I decided instead of layering I wanted something a little more bold, but simple, so I only used the background layer of one of the butterflies to repeatedly stamp assorted color butterflies in Hero Arts Dye Inks. I used the same ink colors and my new Clarity Brushes to color a strip of trimmed off paper the same colors as the butterflies, and used that to line the edge of the card after mounting on some glitter paper. Popped on a sentiment, and there you have it!

Hero Arts Color Layering Bird 

Happy Tuesday friends! Kristina here. Today I'm playing with the Hero Arts Color Layering Bird and Branch I needed a masculine birthday card, and thought Mr. Birdie would fit the bill. I really wanted to use the sentiment "Whats the word Bird" but needed it to be a birthday card, so I hand wrote the rest in. I could have also used a digital stamp or typed/printed. I like that the set comes with a few different options for the branch (Leaves vs Flowers) so you could easily make the a feminine card as well.
My original plan was just a simple one layer card, but I decided it was a little too CAS for me, so I grabbed a postage stamp die and ran the finished card through my die cutting machine, followed by cutting 3 additional squares of the same die to pop it up. I went with some blue inks from the Lia collection, but I think you could get some crazy fun birds mixing up the colors with some of the Hero Arts layering specific ink cubes
