Hero Arts Hydrangea note cards (set of 4)

Hi everyone! It’s almost Friday, lol! Today is my post day on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and I’m happy to share a DT inspiration project using the Hero Arts Color Layering Hydrangeas stamp setHero Arts Hydrangea Layering inks, Hero Arts Hydrangea Frame Cuts and Hero Arts Intense Black ink. I created a gorgeous set of four CAS note cards that are blank on the inside.

Before I get to my project details, I want to mention that quite a few of the Hero Arts color layering stamp sets have sold out recently in the a2z Scrapbooking store and unfortunately this was one of them. I work ahead and had this card made prior to this stamp set selling out, but I have good news – you can special order it at no extra cost when you order your other Hero Arts stamps from a2Z Scrapbooking!

These cards were super easy. I stamped the hydrangea twice in the light and dark purple inks in the layering ink set, then twice again in the light and dark blue inks (also in the ink set), and cut them all with the coordinating frame cut die. I then stamped four sets of leaves in light and medium green inks, and cut those with the coordinating frame cut dies.


I used the positive and negative edges from the notebook border die cuts that I used as a strip accent beneath the hydrangeas. The positive edge is what the border is supposed to look like when it’s cut, and the negative edge is what’s leftover – which I turned upside down for a little interest on two of the cards. I added the hydrangeas on top of the strip and then finished the card fronts with random dots of Crystal Drops.
