Hello Hello

Hi there my favourite crafty peeps,

I'm very excited to be on the Hero Arts blog today, showcasing a card I made to promote the A Blog Named Hero challenge that started recently.

Here is a sneaky peek of my project

I hope you'll come over to the blog and check it out, and join us for the new challenge!

See you soon!

Embossing time!

Hi there crafty friends,

It's me again!

I'm here with a card I made to go along with the latest A Blog Named Hero Challenge, which is;

 O.K here's my card-io (hah! If only it counted as cardio),

As you can see, I stamped the beautiful  CM261 Hero Florals Magnolia stamp, several times around the edge of the cardstock. I then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. The sentiment is from  Hero Arts too of course.

Now this is the part where I added another hour or so onto my work-time, because I thought it would be a good idea to add some shading to all the flowers. ALL. THE. FLOWERS. I admit, it looks great in the end but boy-oh-boy was I questioning my sanity. 

Anyhoo, for a final touch, I flicked over some gold metallic ink across the card front.

Super easy, and so effective!

So I embossed all the things, now it's your turn!! I'd love to see what you come up with, be sure to join us!

See you again soon,

Linda XO

Some Hero Lovin' of late.

Hi there crafty friends!

Long time no speak.

I've been cuh-cuh-crazy busy lately, as I've started studying again. Just another ball to juggle eh!?

I thought I'd stop in and share with you some of my recent cards for A Blog Named Hero (and some not so recent!).

That's all I'm posting for now, I have an essay to write! EEK!

See you again soon, Crafters
