A Blog Named Hero Instagram Hop!

Welcome everyone! Today we are hopping along on Instagram for A Blog Named Hero’s 9th Anniversary! How fun is that?! This is also the beginning of a new challenge… Anniversary (how fitting).

For my card, I decided to go a little more masculine. I see a lot of comments saying how hard it is to make a card for a male. So hopefully this gives you a little inspiration. I used a favorite technique of mine which is an eclipse.

I created a galaxy background on a panel of Neenah Solar White using Summer Sky, Passion flower, Grape juice, Utra pink and Raspertty Jam. I simply ink blended random spots onto the panel. I then covered the panel with Blue Reactive ink along with Distress Ink in Black Soot. I used these two inks so they would react with water creating “stars”. For extra “stars”, I used some Perfect Pearls mixed with water and spattered them onto the panel.

I then placed the girl stamp (mine was actually from an old kit but Hero has a wood mounted stamp if you don’t have the kit) and heat embossed. This Love You Stamp & Cut XL is amazing! Look how it fills the card so nicely. I used it to cut the panel along with cutting extra pieces of white cardstock to add dimension for the eclipse. These pieces were all adhered together with liquid glue and attached to an A2 size card base. Finally, I added a layer of glossy accents to the letters to make it stand out just a bit more.
