Hello friends! I'm excited to help Hero Arts introduce its January 2023 release, which is all about love --and it includes some great new digital products! I love digital designs: They're versatile, inexpensive, easy to work with, and take up ZERO storage space in my overstuffed craft room.
How I made my card: I printed the Italian script heart in black onto lightweight card stock using my laser jet printer and cut the page down to 4.75X6.75 inches and ran it through my Minc machine with gold toner foil. You can skip the foil if you don't have a Minc or a laminator, but if you do. . . . Foil All The Things!
Next I inserted the "you fill my cup" sentiment into the whipped cream topped mug, and printed and foiled it and, after coloring it with my Copics, fussy cut it and put some foam pieces on the back to add dimension to my project.
I made a copy paper reverse mask to fit the large heart image and used Cotton Candy core ink to ink blend that big Italian heart. Going a little too heavy-handed with my blending in one spot helped create dimension since I had to make some other deeper-colored sections of the heart. I love these happy accidents!
I positioned the popped up mug at the bottom of that big heart, and plopped the whole panel onto a light gray (Hero Arts Granite) 5X7 (A7) card base. And that's the card. I'm calling it "Cappuccino Dreaming."
I'll be back later this month with some more Hero Arts cards using their new digital images.
Until then, Happy Creating--I can't wait to see what you make!
