A Blog Named Hero Challenge #1: Thank You

A Blog Named Hero is having their first challenge: Playing Favorites. Hero Arts is one of the first stamps companies I purchased since I started crafting and I decided to join in the fun.

Envelope Pattern stamp has been one of my favorites. I just love the subtle texture it gives as a background not just on cards but on scrapbook layouts.

Here is my card:

Delicate blossoms has been another of my favorites. I've seen so many beautiful creations using this stamp set. I've gotten it not too long ago and decided it was time to get it inked up. The flowers were stamped with versamark and white embossed on pattern paper. Added some shading using distress inks. Also popped up 2 of the flower petals for dimension.

This is also one of the fastest card I did. I rushed through thinking that the deadline was by 8pm EST this very day. Ha...

Supplies Used:
Papers - PTI Smoky Shadow
Pattern Paper - Blush by My Mind's Eye
Inks - Ranger Distress Worn Lipstick, Fired Brick, Crushed Olive, Colorbox Frost White, Versamark
Stamps - HA Delicate Blossoms, Essential Messages
Others - Zing Embossing Powder White, MFT Mixed Banners Die, Pop Dots, WRMK 1/2" Corner Chomper
