Our challenge this month on A Blog Named Hero is CAS - clean and simple - white space, one focal point, few layers and easy to reproduce.  I made two cards, both same design but with different colors and stamps.


I began by taping the edges of my card base with one inch Post-It tape - then blended color.  After making sure all my inking was dry, I stamped the new Christmas Rose on the blue background and the new Holly Berries on the green one.  I used Versamark ink and gold embossing powder on both cards.  Added the sentiments - both from the new Holidays Stamp & Cut - and a few embellishments - done!  Plan on making more of these in different colors - fast and easy!

Join our challenge on Instagram #abnhseptemberchallenge and tag @ablognamedhero. Be sure to enter by 26 September for a chance at one of two gift cards from Hero Arts!
