Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal

Hello, and thanks for stopping by Guneaux Designs!  I greatly appreciate your visit, and hope you are inspired by my creations.  My creation for you today is a card that features the Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal Stamp Set.  I made this card in response to a challenge on Splitcoaststampers.com (SCS).

Each Sunday, SCS selects a member of the site to serve as the “Featured Stamper” for the week.  Other members may CASE one or more of the Featured Stamper’s cards and post it into the related gallery.  My card is a CASE of Karen’s (aka. Art Deco Diva) card featuring the same cardinal.  You can see hers HERE.

Luke 20:45-47

“While all the people were listening, Jesus said to his disciples, “Beware of the teachers of the law.  They like to walk around in flowing robes and love to be greeted in the marketplaces and have the most important seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at banquets.  They devour widows’ houses and for a show make lengthy prayers.  Such men will be punished most severely.”

The only similarity between Karen’s and my card is the gorgeous Hero Arts Color Layering Cardinal.  Her card includes different colors, embossing, and stamp. To create my card, I stamped with VersaMark ink the grouping of trees and heat embossed them with a sparkly embossing power.  I sponged Gina K Designs blue ink onto this piece to create the sky and snow banks (which are difficult to see).  I die cut this piece at an angle with an oval die.

Subsequently, I cut a piece of white card stock and dry embossed it with an old Sizzix Impressions Plate. I covered the dry embossed piece with VersaMark Ink, spread a sparkly embossing powder over the piece, and applied a heat gun. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to see both. IRL, it is quite sparkly.

I die cut the center of the dry and heat embossed panel with an oval die at an angle. I attached this piece to the card base and placed the tree scene within the oval. I die cut several eyelet ovals and attached them over the original die cut oval.

To finish the card, I added the cardinal that I fussy cut, green and white pine needles, and Merry Christmas sentiment.

I also submitted this card for the January 2018 Christmas Challenge that is to create a Christmas card with the letter “C” represented.  My cardinal satisfies that part of the challenge.

Again, thanks so much for stopping by, and a special thanks for leaving a comment.

  1. The oval at an angle is really a cool design element! Your cardinal looks perfect, I love how you cut around him with no white edge, then he blends perfectly into the card.
