Stamping

Magic layers!

Did you know that when you stamp on a new Hero Arts notecard using the new chalk ink, a magic layer is formed?

Well I had no idea that this was happening right under my fingertips, until a few days ago! It only requires sandpaper to reveal it.  Here’s a video I created for the Hero Arts blog to show the technique

AND!  Sandwich two flowers between floral wire, add a vase, and you’ve got a cute flower decoration.  Fun!

If you try this technique I’d love to see what you come up with!

Have fun,

    1. Hi Linda! I’m not a paper scientist, but I think it’s a combo of the notecards having a white core + the chalk ink being dye based…but then again, it could just be magic! :)

  1. OH Lisa….Leave it to Creative YOU to figure this Out!!!!  Wonderful Video…..I don;’t have that stamp yet….but you can bet I’ll be trying this TODAY as I have tons of scraps on my floor from Hero Note cards….which I adore…….
    Hugs!!

  2. I made my first card with dimension similar to yours over at Etsy Labs in Brooklyn last week.  The topic was matchbox valentines (so totally darling and whimsical).  For my hubby, I added a black felted flower using baker’s twine to attach it to the button closure.  I will post the final but not now as I don’t want my hubby to see his card!
    Thanks for these charming cards.
