Our challenge theme this month at A Blog Named Hero is embossing - I chose heat embossing for my card. 

I used the My Monthly Hero Kit from April 2016 for my card today - kit no longer available but many similar stamps are still for sale at Hero Arts.  I embossed the flower and leaves on watercolor paper by stamping in black ink and then heat embossing with clear powder.  I watercolored them and fussy cut because I didn't want an edge around them.  Used a black marker on the edges to cover up the white.  On the card base, I blended some speckled egg DO ink and then spattered with some black watercolor ink.  Glued on the rectangle frame and heat embossed the sentiment which is from the same stamp set.  Did the flower arrangement and done.  I really like how the narrow black frame sets off the flower and leaves.
Try some embossing for our challenge this month - heat embossing, embossing folder, stencil embossing or any other method you may like - they'll all be acceptable and you'll have a chance to win one of two gift cards from Hero Arts.  

Thanks for visiting today.


  1. Lovely card Betth, that black frame is a fabulous touch.

  2. Great card and SO much more effective without that nasty white border on the die cuts! That's the main reason I seldom buy companion dies...besides fussy cutting produces better results. The small black border on the card is a wonderful addition.

  3. The thin black frame looks amazing with your beautiful blossom, Betty!! Love the splatters too!!

  4. Superb card Betty. Love the design and the bold colour on your flowers.


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave comments - they make my day!
