Dreamy Hero Arts Card by Nancy

HELLO FRIENDS! I’m Nancy Sheads from Rowhouse Greetings and I’m here today to show you my latest project featuring dream themed stamps and dies from February 2022 monthly release by Hero Arts. There’s something about this set that’s so reminiscent of Peter Pan or maybe it’s Wynken, Blynken, and Nod who sailed off in a wooden shoe to catch fish made from the stars. Either way, I wanted to bring dreams and fantasy together into my finished card.

Today’s project features: 

  • Dream Accessories Fancy Dies - Hero Arts
  • Dream Messages - Hero Arts
  • Cloudy Sky Scene Dies - Hero Arts
  • Starry Sky Stencil - Lawn Fawn
  • Distress Oxide Blending (see list below)
  • Copic coloring (see marker list below)

To start, I cut a piece of white cardstock to 4.25” x 5.5” for my card background on which I blended Distress Oxide Inks in Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, Chipped Sapphire, and Black Soot. Once I was satisfied with the blend, I set it aside so that the inks could dry.



In the meantime, I cut out the ship, whale and moon from a scrap piece of white cardstock, using the Dream Accessories Fancy Dies from Hero Arts. I used Copic markers to color the ship and whale as shown (see list below).



I knew that I wanted to create a cloud scene for the background so I played with the positioning of one of the dies in the Cloudy Sky Scene Dies from Hero Arts until I had something that I liked and cut it from another piece of white card stock. I stamped a sentiment from the Dream Messages Clear Stamp Set from Hero Arts using Versafine Clair in Nocturne



Then I decided that my night sky needed bright shiny stars so I heated up my laminator and got to work. I placed with the Starry Sky Stencil by Lawn Fawn on top of my ink blended background and applied Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo through the stencil using a palette knife to apply the gel and then a Stencil Pal to smooth it out. After the gel dried to clear, I placed a Deco Foil Transfer Sheets in Silver (shiny side up) on top of the stenciled background. I folded a piece of copy paper in half and placed the entire packet (background & foil) inside and ran it through the laminator. When finished, I peeled off the transfer foil to reveal a sky full of bright stars. 



Once I had all the pieces, it was time to put the card together. I applied Beacon 3-in-1 Advanced Craft Glue to the back of the card front and adhered it to my card base. I applied Crafty Foam Tape by Scrapbook Adhesives to the back of the cloud die cut and adhered it to the bottom of the card. Then I added 3D Small Foam Squares by Scrapbook Adhesives to the back of the whale, ship, and moon to complete my dreamy night sky.


Let’s take another look at the finished card!



That’s all for me today! Hope you enjoyed today’s project!
