Greetings crafty friends!

Today I present my entry for the March Altenew Inspiration Challenge.  I have so much fun completing this card.

Hero Arts Embossing Challenge

Hello Craft Friends!

This month's challenge is embossing!  I've got that covered!  This Mandela stamp from Hero Arts is one of my all time favorites!  I use it all the time!

I white heat embossed the stamp on a piece of Cougar paper, and blended distress ink in an Ombre fashion.  I also ink blended the edges of the card base to match the main section of the card.  The sentiment is from a set in my stash!

I am entering this card in the challenge at A Blog Named Hero.

Have a wonderful day. Be well. Be creative!

Another Hero Arts Challenge Entry

Hello again crafty friends.  This is my second monthly entry for Hero Arts Challenge.

Hero Arts Challenge Entry

Greetings Crafty Friends!  I have been working on challenge cards this weekend.  I love taking a theme and building cards to fit.  Here is my entry for A Blog Named Hero’s Challenge.

Shadow Card Jennifer McGuie style

Oh my gosh, I was so excited to see Jennifer’s recent video demonstrating how to make this sweet shadow card! It is so easy to measure and assemble! Check it out on her blog.

This one will be entered in Simon Says Wednesday Challenge this week.  I used the bike die and floral, kitty and sentiment stamps from Simon Says Stamps.  The baloons are from Tim Holtz’s Crazy Bird Accessory set.  I love her idea of adding floating elements (baloons) in the center with an acetate strip.

Thanks for visiting. Be well. Be creative.
