Inspired by Nancy


Supplies: kraft and white cardstocks, versafine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder, black and white gingham ribbon, black button, white twine, white pearls, Hero Arts stamps S5362 Dogwood, S4878 Old Letter Writing, CL380 Truly Appreciated (sentiment), D2129 Vanessa Butterfly, CL383 Antique Engravings (small butterfly)

A few weeks ago the Hero Arts blog featured the Hostesses (fondly dubbed by some as Hosti) and one of them, Nancy, made a card using kraft and white cardstock with all stamping done in embossed black.  HERE it is.  Isn't it a stunner?  Since then there have been many imitations (see HERE and HERE) and today I'm joining the group. 

The Hero Arts Flickr group, for anyone not familiar with it, is a wonderful place of inspiration and friendship!   If you haven't visited lately, you are in for some gorgeous eye-candy.

  6. Lin...I just love this card!!! I am amazed at the Hero Arts flickr group. Soooo much talent and inspiration!! AND Lin thanks for putting the tags on my photo. I will try to get the ink colors for you that you asked in a comment. I did the cards at a class with all supplies furnished and I didn't purchase any of the supplies for that card. I see you are the leader in numbers of photos in the group....awesome!!
