Good evening and welcome to our first A Blog Named Hero Challenge for July! We’re using this gorgeous photo as our inspiration and we can’t wait to see how you are inspired!
I love the way it turned out but geez it was HARD to photograph! Before I tell you how I made it, here’s a close-up of the background and the sentiment. The sentiment is quite sparkly up close though it looks fairly dull in the above photo.
For this card I started out by stamping the Hero Arts Tiny Flags background stamp onto a piece of white cardstock with Versamark Ink. Then I copied the image with my laser printer onto a piece of black cardstock. I placed a piece of ThermOWeb rainbow foil transfer sheet over the image and ran it through my laminator without a carrier sheet. Once it went through the laminator I peeled off the transfer sheet, oohed and aahed a few times (*ooh shiny!!*) and then set it aside to work on the sentiment!
I took a sheet of Stick-It Adhesive and peeled off one side. I adhered that to a scrap of black cardstock and then ran that cardstock through my Big Shot with the Simon Says Stamp Big Hello die. I peeled the other piece of adhesive off and covered the sticky die-cut with Glitter Ritz microfine glitter. Once it was covered I placed a piece of scrap typing paper over the die-cut and burnished it with my bone folder so the glitter wouldn’t rub off.
To assemble the card I trimmed the rainbow foil panel down and adhered it to a card base of black cardstock. Then I used a few drops of Multi-Medium Matte to attach the sentiment to the panel and then added a sprinkling of Glass Slippers sparkling clear sequins because there wasn’t nearly enough sparkle on my card…ha!
I hope you’ll join in the fun and create something rainbow-inspired for the challenge! The challenge runs until July 19th and we look forward to seeing your creations!
