Hero Arts Layering Stamps - Two Ways!

A couple months ago I won this awesome Color Layering Bird and Branch stamp from Scrap Shotz, an online scrapbook and card making supply company based in Calgary AB! I love these layering stamps and it was so fun to play with a couple colour combinations. I'll definitely be spending more time with these!

Here are a couple cards I made using them -

I played around with some of the inks in my stash to see how they layered on Specialty Stamping paper. The first layer of this bright guy turned out really weird, lol, so I stamped another and popped him up! I love playing around and even if things don't work out I can either usually salvage it or chalk it up to a learning experience. It's been sooooo cold here lately - we've had a week of temps feeling like at least -25*C so this card made me remember that eventually spring is going to come ;)

These beautiful sequins in the Let's Be Mermaids Sequin collection from SpiegelMom Scraps matched my card perfectly!

I layered the main stamped panel on the BoBunny Believe papers from the 6x6 paper pack. I love the 'mixed media' look of these papers! I love this sentiment that would make anyone feel perkier.

For my second card I created a different look - going for a Christmassy feeling card. I really like the blues stamped together.

I used the Holly Berries Sequin Mix from SpiegelMom Scraps for this card - this has been one of my favourite mixes to use this season!

I added a layer of that awesome BoBunny paper, punched on top with a notebook punch and wrapped with twine before popping up my stamped panel. The cardbase is actually a silvery shiny paper, adding to the Holiday feel.
