{Two Many Cards Video Series} featuring Hero Arts: Birthday Celebration + Giveaway!

Hi, everyone! Kalyn and I are back with our video series, Two Many Cards. If you missed our other videos in this series, check out the original post HERE, which explains how and why we're sharing our own unique take on the same products. 

Today, we're featuring Birthday Celebration by Hero Arts! This fabulous set is perfect for birthdays and other celebrations. I love the solid images and coordinating dies, which make it perfect for stamping when you don't want to colour. The dies make it easy to create pop-ups and recessed images perfect for making shaped shakers.

I used several different techniques on this card and I go into detail about that in my video. I used five of Hero Arts' fabulous ombre inks, including three ombre neon inks, which are my favourite ink colours of all time. They're so vibrant and pretty!

I used Ombre Neon Chartreuse to Blue for the martini, Ombre Neon Red to Purple for the party hat and bottom half of the sentiment, Ombre Neon Yellow to Orange for the cupcake, Ombre Tide Pool to Navy and Ombre Mint Julep to Emerald Green for the balloon string.

I combined Ombre Neon Chartreuse to Blue and Ombre Mint Julep to Emerald Green to stamp the fizz above the martini. The word 'Celebrate!' was stamped with Blackboard Mid-Tone ink. I double-stamped it, first on the panel and again on the cupcake so I could place the cupcake perfectly on the panel.

I used Hero Arts Sparkle Embossing Powder on the cupcake for added visual interest and created a shaker from the balloon to give this card a fun element.

I added a strip of silver glitter cardstock to the left side of the card before adhering the panel to the card base. The silver complements and highlights the crystal star sequins.
