So, today’s video shows how to take a die cut and give it fun texture and shine… and also create a window…

(Supplies can be found in the thumbnails at the end of this blog post.)

I am head over heels in love with this new Hero Arts Palm Die. I love the detail and size! And by adding the Distress Inks and Croco Clear Crackle, you can achieve such fun texture.

Here is a better look at the clear crackle finish on the die cut. I wish you could see it in real life. Such a cool, shiny texture

The Five Lines Background stamp is great for just about any card… especially masculine ones. Works great tone-on-tone, too.

And the greeting is a classic one in a classic style

Hero Arts’ newest release includes stamps, dies, inks (new Shadow Ink colors!), daubers and mists. You can find then all HERE. Don’t forget the code up above!

Here are the new dies and stencils – some good ones here:

And new inks! Love that there are new Shadow Inks. (Notice that some colors are only available in the cube sets. The Black is a soft black that gives a solid look when stamped. Great for the look of chalkboard or for a background.) Also, new pastel daubers (great for soft wash backgrounds) and mists:

Now for the new stamps! A good mix of clear, wood and cling:

See you soon.
