Another Christmas Card

When I went to my crafty retreat in early October, I brought along a few holiday stamps in case I was inspired to make a few holiday cards. One of those stamps was a Hero Arts star image. I can't find it online anywhere, even at the Hero store, so I guess it's discontinued*. That's really sad, because mine has never seen ink.

As I was rummaging for something in my "I really should put this away" area, I re-re-discovered the still-uninked stamp, and was suddenly inspired to use it.

This is what came out:

I stamped the star onto one of my Gelli plate panels with Delicata gold ink, then heat-embossed it using some SU gold embossing powder.  Waaaay back in the beginning of my stamping voyage, I was told to get a really good color, you should use gold ink and gold powder together. I think that worked here.

I fussy-cut the star, and declared it a match for Hero Arts Pool layering papers. It's attached with some foam tape.

The sentiment is from a set made from my pal Heather's handwriting. I love it! The sentiment was also stamped in Delicata gold and embossed with SU gold.

This was actually a pretty easy card to make. I might make a few more. :)

I'm sending this card to Iliana, creator of the MISTI. She has something up her sleeve, and all you have to do is send her a Christmas/holiday card. Details can be found here.

Thanks for stopping by!

*Thanks to alert reader Lindsey for finding the stamp at the Frantic Stamper: 

Some of the stuff I used:  Hero Arts K5610 (can't find it online anywhere), SU gold embossing powder, and the following:


  1. Love the stamp that finally got inked and the gelli print!

  2. I found it! It's oh so gorgeous here with the gold embossing and gelli plate artistry.

  3. So pretty -- I love the colorss


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
