Color Layering Seahorses

Hi there, crafty friends!   Kimberly here with you today to share some cards using one of Hero Arts' fun new layering stamp sets!  I love layering sets.....they're such fun to use and experimenting with different colors is half the fun!


I created a shaker card with the MFT Pierced Circle die, some acetate and microbeads I found in my stash!   I stamped and heat embossed some of the shells onto my backer piece. I stamped the seashell and seahorse and fussy cut them out and added them to the edge of the shaker element.   

I prepared the card base by cutting a piece of paper from the MFT paper pad down to 4.25' x 5.5' and added Distress Ink to the edges.   I spritzed on some water to add to the ocean-feel of the card.    I adhered my shaker element  to the card base and added some of the fun new Nuvo drops Vanessa has in the store!  

I stamped the sentiment, also from the Color Layering Seahorses stamp set, onto another piece of patterned paper from the MFT 6x6 pad - it fit absolutely perfectly!   I trimmed the strip and added it to the card base.

For card #2, I wanted to play with the colors Amanda chose for this month's BRI Mood Board.  Aren't they yummy?!?!

I fussy cut another stamped seahorse and added some Glossy Accents to create a shiny focal point for my card.   This one was super simple to put together - I used the same patterned paper,  cardstock and Nuvo drops! 

I hope you've enjoyed my cards today.   Be sure to check out the Mood Board and play along - these are colors I probably wouldn't have worked with otherwise, and I love how it turned out!    See you all next week!  :)
