A Blog Named Hero - Christmas Celebration 2015

Hi everyone! I’m so honored to join the A Blog Named Hero as a special guest today. With their 10 days of Christmas card series, they share every day inspirations from the team and guests.

Here is my card for today:





For this project, I wanted to feature the "Merry Christmas Reindeer" stencil from Hero Arts (that you can get at the Hero Arts store or at Simon Says Stamp). I decided to create a card using non-traditional Christmas colors. First, I traced the outlines of the deer with a sharp pencil onto a watercolor panel. I then colored the deer shape with watercolors and inks to create a beautiful rainbow effect. Next, I heat embossed the "Christmas" sentiment from the Hero Arts Merry Stamp & Cut set with white embossing powder onto black cardstock and I fixed it to the panel with 3D foam pads. To finish off my card, I adhered the watercolored panel to a top-folded card base and I added three tiny wood stars.

My lovely friend Linda Trace also made a wonderful card that you can see on A Blog Named Hero. I'm so happy that we are featuring our cards together!!! ^_^

Today is the last day of that celebration. So don’t forget to head over to the ABNH blog and check the latest postings to see all those wonderful projects. 




Have a wonderful Christmas time…
