VIDEO | Decorate Die-Cuts with Stencils

Hello there, today I have a card and video to share using the Hero Arts Balloon Bunch Fancy Dies. I am adding details to them using ink blending and stencils. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off by die cutting the bouquet of balloons from the Hero Arts Balloon Bunch Fancy Dies from Hero Arts Deluxe Smooth White Cardstock. I then cut the individual balloon four times from the same cardstock. I added ink blending to the individual balloons first, using a Hero Arts Medium Ink Blending Brush and Hero Arts Core Inks. 

I then added ink blending to the balloons in the bouquet, making sure to mask off the strings so that they remained white. I used Dandelion, Ultra Pink, Amethyst and Aquatic on the individual balloons, and Papaya, Bermuda and Aegean on the ones in the bouquet. I then placed the Hero Arts Sparkle Weave Stencil on top of each balloon and blended the same colour inks on top, to add the pattern onto the balloons. 

I adhered the individual balloons on top of the ones in the bouquet (I did have to cut a little of the bouquet pieces off for them to fit, you can see that in my video below) using Hero Arts Precision Glue XL. I added horizontal score lines onto a US A2 sized card base made from Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock. The balloon bouquet was then adhered on top using thin foam tape. 

I stamped the 'happy birthday' sentiment from the Hero Arts Folk Art Stamp Set onto Pitch Black Cardstock using Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip and adhered to the card with more thin foam tape. I die cut three butterflies from the Hero Arts Flower Pattern Cover Plate using white cardstock and adhered them to the card. To finish, I embellished with Hero Arts Black Enamel Dots


Here is the video showing how I made the card:
