A Blog Named Hero - Embossing Challenge
Hello crafty friends!
It’s Linda from A Blog Named Hero, and I’m ridiculously excited to be here today, to introduce the new challenge on A Blog Named Hero
It’s seriously made an impression
This can be dry embossing or heat embossing, we don’t mind, we just want to see your creative flag fly.
I wanted to get a bit crafty (crafty like a fox I mean), so I decided to use my new Thanks Message Fancy Die
, to emboss a print onto the cardstock panel.
I ran it through my diecutting machine multiple times, using the embossing pads to create a repeated impression.
After trimming my card base down, I then diecut a ‘thanks’ from a panel of watercolour cardstock that I’d made gorgeous using the Hero Arts Liquid Watercolours in Strawberry
, Deep Ocean
. So easy to do and so beautiful! Just drips onto some pre-wet cardstock and then mist again to blend!
I diecut a second ‘thanks’ from black cardstock, to really make the colourful diecut pop. I adhered the two together, slightly off-set to create a shadow effect.
I compiled my card together, attaching the embossed panel using foam tape to make it nice and dimensional. For a final touch, I added some Nuvo drops, and an additional ‘mini-sentiment’ from the Many Everyday Messages
stamp set, which I heat embossed on black cardstock with the one-and-only Hero Arts white embossing powder
I do hope you’ll join us
! We’d love to see you all getting crafty.
See you again next month!
