Hello to you all! Today I am over at a2z Scrapbooking with a card using the delicate Hero Arts Beautiful Day Agapanthus stamp set. Use my discount code Karen15 to get 15% off your purchase of $25 or more.
May Flowers is the theme for the monthly challenge. I love to use my floral stamps so this is one of my favorite types of card to make.
To start the card I stamped one of the bunches of agapanthus along with the stem and leaves and heat embossed with gold powder. I used my Misti to get things lined up nice. I used Bristol paper for this because I was going to use Zig pens on it. I learned in a class that this is the best paper to use with the Zig pens and I find this to be true. So I colored the flowers, stem and leaves practicing some things from the class I took.
I cut out the flowers and mat using Hero Arts Oval dies. The mat is a purple color which might be hard to see in the photo.
For the background I decided to heat emboss with the same gold powder. I used the other flower bunch in the set to stamp and heat emboss on each corner.
Then comes the sentiment which was the tricky part. I first die cut the words. Then I turned them upside down on the Versamark ink pad. I sprinkled on the gold embossing powder then moved them to a piece of paper. I decided that leaving them on a piece of paper and heat embossing from underneath was the best so the words would not blow away when I was using the heat gun.
Then it was just adhering everything to the card.
I entered this in the May Challenge over at A Blog Named Hero. The theme this month is celebrate.
