Black Cardstock, Colored Embossing and Fun Dies with Hero Arts


Aloha all!  It’s Niki G. and I’ve got a fun way to use those awesome Hero Arts Paper Layering Dies (today I used the Pineapple).  All you need is some embossing powder and a Versamark pen (or a Q-tip dipped in Versamark).


I wanted the colors to pop, so I went with black cardstock and some colored embossing powders.  I used the Versamark pen to color areas of the die that I wanted the embossing powder to stick.  I first colored in the leaves with the pen and covered in Zing! Leaf embossing powder and heat set.  Then I colored in the pineapple and covered in Judikins Egyptian Gold powder and heat set.  The results are super cool!  I really wanted something bright to peak through the die and went with a bright pink card base.


Our latest challenge is to use those Hero Arts die cuts, so for my sentiment I used Hero Arts Congrats Stamp and Cut and gold foil paper.  To complete the sentiment I heat embossed it to match the pineapple.

And a closeup…


Come join us for our latest challenge!  Hope to see you there!!

MAHALO for stopping by!
