Have you seen that A Blog Named Hero are celebrating a Christmas extravaganza! All through November there will be daily Christmas inspiration from companies we all love including, of course, Hero Arts! I’m joining in today as part of their cards week. Through November there will be all sorts of fun with weeks dedicated to gifts, decor and Christmas quickies!
I love the little snowman from Hero Arts’ Snow Much Joy set so he had to be on my card today! I stamped him in Memento tuxedo black and then coloured him with Copics. I added white enamel polka dots to his scarf and black enamel to his eyes to bring them to life. Some glossy green holly and red pearl berries finished him off nicely :) He’s mounted onto a panel of light blue card stamped with some thin stripes in Versamark and then white embossing paste added through the Falling Snow stencil from Simon Says Stamp. While the embossing paste was still wet I doused it in a lovely coat of glitter :) The snow banks were made using the A2 Curved Edge die from Simon Says Stamp and the foreground snow drift was decorated with a lightly inked then glittered Kate snowflake from Simon Says Stamp. The sentiment is from Hero Arts’ Holiday Conversations set. Phew! There’s a lot going on in this little 3.5×5 inch card LOL.
Thanks to A Blog Named Hero for asking me along today :) Make sure you keep a daily check on all the fabulous inspiration there this month!
