Our challenge this month is vellum. Which is actually a great challenge, because using it usually presents one. As in, “how will I adhere this”? Well, I might have come up with a card design based upon the idea that I could not find my vellum adhesive. Ha!

Niki has a $20 gift voucher to a2z Scrapbooking to give away – all you have to do is share your first ever Hero Arts stamp in the comments of her post. So that is what I am doing today!
I combined by first Hero Arts purchase (the Happy Birthday to You stamp), white embossed onto some black cardstock, with one of my most recent Hero Arts purchases (the Bold Floral stencil). Some Distress Ink sponging and a few sequins from Pretty Pink Posh make for a simple birthday card!
I hope you will share your first ever Hero Arts stamp with us on our Facebook Page – Niki can’t wait to give away the voucher!
Niki will be choosing the winner on June 20th.
And don’t forget, our challenge theme for June is:

Hi friends – welcome back for another fun collaboration between Hero Arts and Lil’ Inker Designs – lucky me, I already had some fun things in my stash from Lil’ Inker’s which made this card oh so fun to create!

I chose their Vintage Flowers for my card which I stamped and embossed in gold on vellum. Made masks so I could make a bouquet and then fussy cut it in one piece.
Linda here, and I wanted to share another card I made that goes along with our current challenge of
I used a combo of Hero Arts inks and our collaboration partner for this month,
Its tough to see in the light, but I’ve used my wonky stitched dies around the edge of the vellum and the black topper piece.
So the black part, is actually a top folding notecard, that I trimmed around 3 inches off the length of. I still scored it at the traditional 5.5 inch mark, so that I’d have a kind of ‘flap’ (for lack of a better word).
I used Hero Arts Soft Pool, Soft Sky and a tiny bit of Navy Shadow Inks right at the bottom, blending them upwards from the bottom of the panel of white cardstock, which is sitting behind the vellum.
To finish the card I just stamped and heat embossed the sentiment, and added some aqua enamel dots.
Hope you like it!
We’d love to see what you make for the challenge, so come on and let’s see what you’ve got!
See you again soon!
