Encouragement Cards, Feel Good Cards

You Are Valued, Important, Appreciated | A Blog Named Hero August Challenge


Hi there, I hope you’re having a lovely day!  Can you believe it’s already the middle of September? And, the middle of the month means there’s a new A Blog Named Hero challenge!  This month’s challenge theme is “Inspired By Another Crafter.”

My card today is CAS(e)d from Julie Ebersole who is one of my favorite designers.  I love her clean and simple style.

I started by stamping the large floral from the Hero Arts and Gina K. Designs Friendship Blooms collaboration stamp set using Hero Arts Pink Tourmaline ink.  This ink was from a My Monthly Hero Card Kit from year before last and I picked this color because it closely resembles the Hero Arts Plum cardstock.  I stamped onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock and then set it aside.

For the sentiment, I cut strips of Pesto, Mustard, and Plum Hero Arts cardstocks.  Then I used white Hero Arts embossing powder to heat emboss sentiments from the You are Loved stamp set.

I trimmed the strips and then used Post-It Tape to temporarily hold them in place while I aligned them.  Then I flipped them over, added foam tape to the back of each strip, and adhered them to the card front.

Thanks so much for visiting!
