A Hero Arts Retailer



Hello everyone!  Greta here & I’m very excited to bring you my first card as a member of the a2z Scrapbooking Supplies DT. Those of us in the U.S. will soon be celebrating Thanksgiving.  I wanted to show you that non-holiday stamps can be used with holiday colors to make a card.

A2Z Nov1

I heat embossed the Leafy Vines & sponged on 3 Distress Inks.  Then I dry embossed the panel & sponged it with gold ink before inking the edges brown.  The sentiment is stamped on a scrap, trimmed into a banner, sponged with gold & edged with brown.  I wanted the card front to be a bit softer, so I also sponged it with gold.  Hero Arts gems provide the embellishment.  Our challenge this month is Anything Goes, so grab your Hero Arts products & play along.  Check out the store and use my code, GRETA15, for 15% off a minimum $25 purchase.

Embossing Folder: Darice Fall Leaf Background

Ink: Delicata Golden Glitz, Distress Inks Gathered Twigs, Scattered Straw, Dried Marigold & Shabby Shutters
