Hero Hues Reactive Ink Collaboration with Jenny Hall

Hello stamping friends! Are you feeling blendy today? Well, my good friend, Jenny Hall, and I decided to do a collaboration with the Hero Hues Reactive inks.

She created a panel and sent it to me to create a project with.

And I made a video of the whole thing! Check it all out here.

I believe the inks Jenny used were Lemon Drop and Splash. I used a bunch of stuff from Hero Arts.

The Reef Border fancy die is so detailed and beautiful, it takes center stage.

And there is lots of shimmer on this, thanks to Clear Wink of Stella.

Simple Galaxy Texture

While I was looking through my stash for a good sentiment for a project the other day, I stumbled on the Milky Way fancy frame die from Hero Arts. I had just received the July 2019 Wacky Holiday of the Month stamp set from Kindred Stamps, and it happens to be World UFO Day. A match made in the heavens!!

Isn't he adorable?! I haven't colored anything is a while, I hadn't even realized that I missed it.
Copics used:
  • Alien: YG21, YG03, YG25, YG17
  • Spaceship: W1, W2, C00, C2, B16, B28, R46, 437

I did a video of the card process, so check that out for all the details.

The galaxy patterned paper I used was from the Kindred Stamps Space Heroes limited edition box that came out last fall. It is really heavy, like 110# cardstock! I had not used any of it before, but this project seemed the perfect time to start.

I used the Marbled TurnAbout from Concord and 9th with White Satin Pearl embossing powder to create the textured oval behind the Milky Way fancy frame die cut. I can't say enough how much I love that embossing powder. Pure magic! There are several marbled background stamps you could use for this technique, and I have linked a few below.

The black cardstock is embossed with a retired Stampin' Up! embossing folder, but Kaiser Crafts has an almost identical one. It happens to be on clearance at right now!

I used a sentiment from the Space Heroes stamp set (which again, was a limited edition) with Versafine Onyx Black ink. The spaceship is stamped with Weathered Wood Distress Oxide.

One of my favorite alien movies is Independence Day, what's yours?
