I’m thrilled to have joined a new design team. For the awesome a2zscrapbooking shop. Here’s a little sneak peak of what I’ve made as a little welcome card. Please go to their great blog and check us out. I think you’ll be very happy with what you see.
The newest challenge at A Blog Named Hero is #43, Inspired By… meaning inspired by a Hero Arts designer. Since we are also collaborating with Mama Elephant, I combined both into one card. So much fun!
I then covered the stamped pieces with versamark and clear embossing powder, and then heat embossed. Did this three times per bird. Absolutely love the finished look on this. It’s a small little work of art. Makes me happy.
I was thrilled to be able to use this “new to me” starburst stamp in today’s challenge. I’d been wanting to try an acetate card, and decided this stamp would make it happen.
- Don’t use your stickiest adhesive here. I love my ATG gun, LOVE it. It’s such a strong adhesive though that if the card stock even touches the acetate, it’s DOWN. And if you don’t have it in the proper position, you’re not going to be happy. (ask me how I know…) So I switched to a regular tape runner. Worked perfectly.
- Use your stampamajig! Oh my gosh, when I figured this out, I monkey clapped like Julie Ebersole! Just place your acetate card in the corner of the ‘jig, then place that corner of the card stock down first. The rest falls into place perfectly. (Read the following in a sing-songy voice.) It is awesome!!!
Using the great Hero Arts “World for Taking” stamp, and creating my own background on watercolor paper. Had so much fun. And that stamp embosses beautifully. A little twine to wrap it up and it’s ready for an envelope.
