Hi everyone. Hi everyone, it’s time for the February challenge at A Blog Named Hero. This month’s challenge is Birthday. I’m always needing birthday cards and this card is one that I could quickly make duplicates of.
I was recently at a stamp retreat, and we had a gift exchange. I received some water coloring supplies and was eager to try them out. I water colored a background with my new shimmery water colors.
Hi everyone, it’s time for the January challenge at A Blog Named Hero. This month’s challenge is Anything Goes. In 2019, I got on the blender brush train and I’m bringing that into 2020!
I used the Spiral stencil with three different distress inks for my background. You can’t really see it in the picture, but I did spray this with shimmer spray. I then used a rectangle die from my stash to cut out the zig zag panel.

Hi everyone, it’s time for the November challenge at A Blog Named Hero. This month’s challenge is Muted Tones. I will tell you that this was a challenge for me, I love bright colors! I think I came up with a card that passes as muted colors.
I started the card by ink blending with distress inks and a stencil on a piece of white card stock.

I started by water coloring on a panel with brown water coloring and then by splattering some brown specks. I then used the largest rectangle die from the Embossed Rectangle set from Kat Scrappiness to die cut the water color panel. I then adhered the panel to my kraft card base.
It’s that time for a new challenge on A Blog Named Hero. This month the challenge is Nature.
When I think of nature, green and brown tones seem to come to mind or yellows and reds for fall. I changed it up and went with some bright colors for my card.
I colored and die cut one of the butterflies from the New Day Butterflies stamp set using pink and purple Copic markers. I found this gorgeous piece of plaid pattern paper in my stash that matched perfectly! I adhered this to my white card base and stamped my sentiment, also from the New Day Butterflies stamp set.
I wrapped a piece of pink and white twine around the card where the pattern paper met the white card base. I embossed a stitched circle from turquoise paper with a tiny dots embossing folder and adhered the butterfly to the circle using dimensional adhesive. To finish off the card, I added a few pink and purple jewels.

It’s Challenge time on A Blog Named Hero. This month the challenge is Inspired by another crafter.
There are so many amazing card makers out there that it was hard to choose from! I choose Jill Hawkins. I seriously think she has never made a card that I didn’t like! Her cards are clean and simple, often contain soft rainbow coloring and stitching.
I started the card by heat embossing the Bursting with Love background stamp with white embossing powder on watercolor card stock. I then water colored using some pretty rainbow colors. Now the part I was most nervous about, I stitched this panel onto my card base using a small sewing machine. I really can’t believe how straight the stitching turned out!
I then die cut the Thanks Message Fancy die out twice in white card stock. I ink blended one of them with pink ink. I wasn’t happy with the way it looked, so I used my second die cut to offset it. This way it shows just a little bit of pink.
This was such a fun challenge. I’m inspired by so many crafters out there. Who are some of your favorites? Head over to A Blog Named Hero to see all the other awesome cards from the design team and join in on the challenge!
