Video: Adding Texture & Shine… + Hero Arts Discount Code + Giveaway!

Hello! I have a lot to share today… including a video showing how to add texture and shine to stamped images… a discount code for the new Hero Arts products… and a giveaway.

[All supplies are linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post. To watch the video in HD on YouTube, click HERE.]

I am always looking for new and/or easier ways to add fun finishing touches to my projects. Today I show how to cover stamped images with a coat of WOW Ultra High Clear Glossy Embossing for a ton of texture and shine. So easy! (You could always use several layers of regular clear embossing powder or Glossy Accents for a similar look.) I used the new Hero Arts Holly Jolly holly stamps for the technique. This stamp set is unique in that it has a stamp for the holly outline and the solid holly image. That way you can use them apart or together. So versatile. LOVE. (They also have a poinsettia set like this. The supplies are listed at the end of this post – just scroll down.)

Isn’t that shine great? I also added some gold shine with drops of Hero Arts Gold Mist. (It turns out this stuff is hard to get – more should be in stock soon.)

The other new Hero Arts stamp I used is the Dotted Grid Background. Only a little bit of it shows on the red, but it is a dynamite stamp.

I wanted to also mention that I am having a lot of luck with using the Inkadinkado Stamping Mat. The tiny bit of cushion it gives seems to help me get better results when stamping solid images.

  3. You always do such awesome cards! I don’t know about others, but it’s so hard to pick just one favorite as soooo many of them appeal to me…but I’d have to say that the Holly Jolly set that you highlighted would be a favorite. See so many possibilities with it.

  4. Just lovely, Jennifer! I could watch you stamp for hours!! Such a hard decision, but I think I would choose the ‘Thankful for You’ stamp set. It’s perfect for letting family and friends know just how special they are to me! β™‘

  13. This is a beautiful card. I love how the stamp set has different stamps for the layers on the leaves. I would like to see the poinsettia one.

  14. Very Nice Card! Thabnks for showing the instructions on making it. It looks very nice & I like those stamps very much!

  15. Beautiful product line, but when has Hero ever let us down. For some strange reason, that stamp set, Christmas Crystals really caught my imagination. I have no idea how to use it, and would love to see your take on that. Outstanding video as always. Love those holly leaves.

  16. My three favorites are the winter mini ink pads, the background stamps and the reindeer stencil. Thank you again for the wonderful card and sharing your techniques with all of us. I think the release is getting me into the holiday spirit.

  17. I simply loved those holly leaves. Thanks for a chance to win, and I love your videos. Hopefully I will be able to replace my computer so I can see it better. My phone is good but not great.

  18. The Merry Christmas Tree stamp is my very favorite of this release. Thank you for the great video. I really need that embossing powder.

  19. I have 2 favorites in the release, the Crystal, and the Family & Friends stamp sets. I am into background stamps currently, so the Basic Grey background stamp will be an addition to my wish list, too. Not to forget the Wow! Ultra High Clear embossing powder. I saw you demo the Ultra High Gold, so I am just in awe seeing the dimension created by this powder after heated.

  20. These stamps are all lovely, I think Hero Arts make the best stamps. My favourite from this lot has to be the Merry Christmas Tree. The Night Snowflakes and Poinsettias set are really nice too though. Thanks for the chance to win πŸ™‚

  21. I really like the new hero arts winter sparkle ornament stamps. Thanks for all the great idea and techniques you do!

  22. I don’t know if it is a international giveaway, but just in case my favourite product would be the Merry Christmas reindeer stencil or the christmas tree cordinating stamp and die.

    And your card…. Awesome!! I wish I had at least half of the products you used to create my own!

  23. Hello, itΒ΄s really hard to choose just the one product …. e.g. I love Merry Christmas Xmas tree stamp or the Christmas small tag or the Christmas tree stamp and die set or those amazing background stamps….. I could continue to count out the whole catalogue πŸ™‚ … I definitely love the most Crystmas crystal stamp set ! It is so modern and unique and it would be great for coloring with watercolors! I wish I could win πŸ™‚
