Good morning, and happy Sunday! Today, as a current member of the A Blog Named Hero team, I have the honor of taking part in a blog hop to celebrate A Blog Named Hero’s 5th anniversary! Some illustrious former team members, as well as some A Blog Named Hero friends, are getting together with the current design team to bring you a massive blog hop, complete with some absolutely incredible prizes from some of our previous sponsors. (More on those later! 😉 ) You can see the full hop list on the A Blog Named Hero blog, and you should have arrived here from the incomparable Jennifer McGuire. I’m so happy to be a part of such a fun celebration and in such talented company!
On to the projects!
Hero Arts creates some of the most luscious backgrounds. Truly, their super detailed background stamps are just one of the things I adore most about this company. (Their environmentally friendly business dealings also rank up near the top. Look on your Hero Arts packaging for their environmental mission statement. Love it!) So, for both of my projects today, I have chosen to work with my favorite background stamps for some emboss-resist technique, as well as my favorite flower stamp from Hero Arts.
This project features the Spice Market background. It’s absolutely one of my favorite images. The detail in this stamp is just incredible. I started by heat embossing the image using white detail embossing powder onto an A2 panel of pale gray card stock. I wanted a subtle pattern, but not quite tone-on-tone, and the pale gray card stock helped achieve that. To bring out some of the phenomenal details of the background, I did some ink blending around the edges with Soft Granite and Charcoal inks from Hero Arts. For the floral swag, I used my favorite Hero Arts flower set: Color Layering For You and the matching dies. I cut the flowers from yellow card stock, because white die cut edges on a colored background drive me nuts, then stamped the layers in Papertrey Ink’s Harvest Gold and Hero Arts’s Butter Bar inks. (I chose to ignore the first, most solid layer of the stamp so that the edges of my die cuts remained tidy. #ihavestampingocd) The white flowers were die cut from white card stock, with the detail layer stamped in Soft Granite. The leaves were die cut from the same pale gray as the A2 base, and again stamped with Soft Granite. My greeting, from Lia Griffith’s Hello Spring by Hero Arts, was heat embossed in white onto a rectangle of vellum. I adhered the vellum to my assembled floral swag, then popped it up with dimensional adhesive. The final step was to add some yellow sequins here and there in my flowers to round it out.
My second card for today uses my absolute favorite background from Hero Arts… the Lia Griffith woodgrain background. I adore this background. It’s just stylized enough that it doesn’t scream rustic and primitive, but rather simple and trendy. I again heat embossed this background onto some pale gray card stock using white detail embossing powder, then blended some Soft Granite around the edges. I love how this looks… very faux bois. I again stamped the flowers on yellow, white, and pale gray card stocks, this time making large white blooms stamped with Soft Granite and Charcoal inks, and small yellow blooms stamped with Butter Bar ink. After I had created my flowers, I die cut the Hero Arts Floral Border Fancy Frame from some charcoal colored card stock, then arranged my blooms on it and popped the whole wreath up using dimensional adhesive.
For the greeting, I used the Hello Stamp ‘n Cut, die cutting three of the “hello” from white card stock and adhering them all together to create a dimensional die cut. The coordinating “you brighten my day” was stamped on a strip of white card stock and adhered again using dimensional adhesive. A few shimmering white sequins finished it off and added a touch of sparkle.

Beautiful cards! Lovely color combo with the gray and yellow! Ha, I too dislike the white edges around solid colored images on a colored background. Not exactly the pop I want to create. 😉 It’s usually the reason why I don’t bother with a lot of the new flower dies. Your tip to use coordinating colored paper for the image when using the die makes so much sense! Thanks for sharing your beautiful designs and tips!
