Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut with Gel Print Background
I’ve been having a blast playing with my Gel Press and Gelli Arts plates. The trouble is using all the cool papers I’m creating! Recently, I bought some Dina Wakely acrylic paints and used a retired Hero Arts Background, Spice Market, with some of the papers I made, so I pulled out Happy Stamp & Cut from Hero Arts along with the Rose Stem stamp and turned a gorgeous piece of gel printing into a card!
And since it fits in with the current challenge over at A Blog Named Hero, I’m playing!
I did these papers on copy paper instead of card stock, so I had to apply it to a piece of card stock for body. I then cut out the piece with the Infinity Rectangles dies and stamped the Rose Stem stamp on top with Memento Tuxedo Black. Originally I had thought of trying to add color to the rose, but honestly, it doesn’t need it.
I love these colors, and you can see that Spice Market stamp there among the grunge!
For the “Happy Anniversary” piece, I used a piece of Berry Sorbet card stock from Papertrey Ink because it was an almost exact match for the Blushing shade of acrylic paint I used in the gel print. I cut the Happy from the Happy Stamp & Cut out of Neenah Solar White and added some Wink of Stella over top for a bit of sparkle. I love how this turned out! I’ve got a lot more papers I can use, but it’s so fun to make them I definitely won’t wait until I use them all up before I make more!
Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used compensated affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Ellen Hutson LLC, Scrapbook.com, Gina K, Joggles, My Favorite Things, Ranger Ink, Hero Arts, My Sweet Petunia, and Blick Art Supplies. Buying through these links keeps your purchase price exactly the same, but I get remitted a percentage of your purchase, which helps me continue to run this blog and buy new stuff to show. It’s a win/win/win!
