Heat Embossing with Hero Arts Beautiful Day Agapanthus


Hello to you all! Today I have a card with some heat embossing using the delicate Hero Arts Beautiful Day Agapanthus stamp set.  May Flowers is the theme for our monthly challenge if you would like to join in. You don’t have to twist my arm to make a floral card.

Hero Arts Beautiful Day Agapanthus

To start the card I stamped one of the bunches of agapanthus along with the stem and leaves and heat embossed with gold powder. I used my Misti to get things lined up nice. I used Bristol paper for this because I knew I was going to use Zig pens on it. I learned in a class that this is the best paper to use with the Zig pens and I find this to be true. So I colored the flowers, stem and leaves practicing some things from the class I took.

I cut out the flowers and mat using Hero Arts Oval dies. The mat is a purple color.

For the background I decided to heat emboss with the same gold powder. I used the other flower bunch in the set to stamp and heat emboss on each corner.

Then comes the sentiment which was the tricky part. I first die cut the words. Then I turned them upside down on the Versamark ink pad. I sprinkled on the gold embossing powder then moved them to a piece of paper. I decided that leaving them on a piece of paper and heat embossing from underneath was the best so the words would not blow away when I was using the heat gun.

Then it was just adhering everything to the card.
