{a2z scrapbooking} Hero Arts Wishing Well Shaker Card



Hi Everyone!! I'm over on the a2z scrapbooking blog with my 2nd project for the month. This one uses my favorite stamp set from the 2018 release, Wishing Well, which can be purchased in the a2z store. Links and Shopping discount below.

Here's my process

I created a basic shaker card with a rectangle die and some fun foam, filled with sequins an adhered down to a card base which I had colored blue with some copic markers. I stamped, colored, and cut a ton of images from the Wishing Well stamps set, and decorated the front of my card. I stamped a sentiment down at the bottom, and added some Nuvo Drop accents just for a little interest at the bottom.

Trying Concord & 9th Turnabout Stamps

So how cool is the turnabout stamp concept. I've had this stamp for a little bit now and now that I've used it I'm smitten & want them all! It's the ultimate solution for a multi-colored background stamp!
I used mine to make a piece of patterned paper to use on my card.


My card design was inspired by the sketch challenge at Where Creativity Meets c9 for March. I cut my background into 1.5 inch strips, and then mounted onto black card stock. I didn't want to cover too much of the beautiful florals with my sentiment, so I choose vellum with just a small piece of white card stock behind to distinguish the sentiment from the background.



I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment several times to get a nice impression. For some finishing touches I used some clear & white nuvo drops to add little enamel dots.
I can't wait to play more with this stamp and tons of other color combos!

Until next time...
