Hero Arts Monogram Card


Just a quick card tonight. I had something else prepared to post, but sold out of the stamps used on that card today, so I had to "punt"!

This card with created with the new Hero Arts Monogram Clear Design stamp set. If you like monogrammed cards, you MUST see this set!

Honestly, this card really WAS quick and easy! I stamped the "M" on white cardstock, then using my frame, I stamped over it using Opera Pink VersaColor ink. Because the stamps are clear, I didn't need a stamp positioner. I used JudiKins Detail Clear embossing powder to emboss.
The stamped image was trimmed, then layered twice in colors to coordinate with the designer paper.

I wish I knew the name of the designer paper, but it just was a scrap I had in my stash, so there was nothing printed on the back.

The green ribbon is Offray, which I found at Walmart. I layered it with a little pink ribbon I found at Michael's.

So simple...so quick and easy.

I LOVE monogrammed cards, and this set has so many possibilities. You will probably be sick of it before I finish exhausting all the options available.

So....that's it for me. Thanks for stopping by. I want you to know that I read every comment, and they are all greatly appreciated.
