Hello, everyone! My laptop decided it was a good time to break down couple of days ago and my hubby was trying to fix it since Saturday. He fixed it on Sunday, it worked like normal on Monday and than broke again. So that has set me back a little bit as I was hoping to get some more blogging done and share this project earlier during the week.
But thankfully, my laptop is back to normal and I can go back to my usual blogging routine. Fingers crossed its not going to break again as I need to finish so many videos by the end of this month (working on a card class).
So I’m finally sharing my card using Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember(R) Hero Arts exclusive stamp set. Its a smaller set that also includes a die.
I started working on this card by heat embossing a Leaf background image onto Cream cardstock using Hero Arts White Satin Pearl embossing powder. Its a new color and I find it to be very pretty. It is more of a clear powder, not so much white, but it does give your images that beautiful satin pearl finish. Unfortunately, photos don’t do it justice, so be sure to watch my video below to see this embossing powder in action.

I die cut the word Prayers using Hero Arts die and stamped a word Prayers on top using Simon’s Catkin ink. Because this is a clear stamp it makes it easy to aligh on top of the die cut. I also cut 3 stitched maple leaves and colored them using same Catkin ink (I have another card using these dies here).
The word Prayers was also die cut out of fun foam. I added 2 layers of double sided adhesive (to the back and to the front) using Scrapbook Adhesive’s by 3L Adhesive Sheets. I love using those to make sticky die cuts. The top layer of adhesive was used to adhere the stamped cardstock die cut and the bottom layer was used to adhere the entire piece onto my heat embossed background.
I tucked the die cut leaves under Prayers, added a small stamped “sending you” sentiment, I stamped it using Vintage Sepia ink and dressed this card up using Fall Sequin Mix from Neat & Tangled. The panel was foam mounted onto Simon’s Card Base, which was trimmed down a bit to match the proportions of the die cut panel.
