Sweet Birthday Wishes
Hi there! Welcome to the Copy a Designer challenge for A Blog Named Hero. I made a quick and easy Sweet 16 card for my cousin, and was inspired by a card from Emily Midgett.
That is the card I made, easy, right? I used the Journaling Numbers die set from Neat & Tangled. Then I colored the numbers with a Copic marker, and then applied Honey Gold Nuvo Glitter Drops to the die cuts and set them aside to dry.
While they were drying I used the sentiment from Hero Arts Color Layering Ice Cream stamp set and stamped that on to some pink cardstock. After I let the numbers throughly dry I used a glue pen to adhere them to the card front. Adhered that to the card base and added some sequins to finish the card.
There’s a close up of the numbers, I really like how they came out. And the best part is that you can make these in an unlimited combination by using various coloring mediums and different glitters on top. Super fun way to get your mojo going if you’re in a rut, just make a bunch of these for future use.
And here is the card that was my inspiration. I just love it, and I tried to do it justice.
I hope you’ll join us for this month’s challenge. Up for grabs is a gift certificate to Neat & Tangled.
Thanksgiving is Coming!

We have a new challenge over at A Blog Named Hero today, and it’s all about Metallics! I didn’t used to be a fan of gold, I was more of a silver gal, but lately, I’m just loving everything that’s gold in the crafty world.
I used a great sentiment stamp from Hero Arts and surrounded it with a wonderfully whimsical stamp from a Neat & Tangled stamp set.
I stamped this on vellum cardstock and embossed with gold embossing powder from Hero Arts. Adhered that to a scrap piece of cardstock with some gold thread, and a few drops of glossy accents along the edges, underneath the solid circle image, just to keep the edges down. Then popped that up on foam for dimension. I really didn’t want to jump on this foam bandwagon, but I have, and frankly, I love it.
Please hop on over to the blog and join us in this fun challenge. It’s sponsored by the wonderful Simon Says Stamp, and they’ve offered a $25 gift certificate to the winner. Very generous of them, and we thank them very much.
We have a new collaboration staring over at A Blog Named Hero, and this is my first project. Come take a look.
