HA blog POST

Hello, everyone! I hope you all are having an amazing day. When I made this card a few days ago it was a warm, "summery" day... But, as I write this post I'm sitting all cozied up on my couch with cold, fresh air blowing through my windows and screen doors. It seems that all of a sudden the weather has turned and "snuggle weather is here." With the arrival of fall's crisp air it's also time for a new Get Crafty With Hero Challenge. The card I've made today is to kick off the new Fall themed challenge where you get to use your favorite fall colors. Head on over to the Hero Arts blog to play along.

For today's card I inkblended a piece of white cardstock using Lemon Drop, Creamsicle and Fruit Punch reactive inks. I let the ink dry completely before moving on.

Next, I used the Victorian Stencil to add some Hero Paste to my background. I peeled the stencil off and cleaned it immediately. While the paste was still wet I covered it with gold embossing powder. I used a heat tool to heat emboss the paste but I was careful not to get my heat tool too close to the paste so I wouldn't bubble it. I cut my background down to 4'x5.25' and used foam tape to add it to a sand cardbase.

I finished my card off by adding a leaf from the Autumn Leaves Fancy Dies and a sentiment from the Autumn Messages stamp set. The sentiment was heat embossed on vellum using Onyx pigment ink and clear embossing powder. 

Ok, guys, that's it for today! If you'd like to play along with the Hero Arts Fall Color Challenge head over to the Hero Arts Blog to play along!

Have an awesome day!
