A Blog Named Hero with Simon Says Stamps

Happy Holiday everyone!

I am here with A Blog Named Hero and this month we are collaborating with Simon Says Stamps  to help celebrate their fabulous Die-cember release!  Our challenge this month is "Winter Holiday".  I am using the newly released die from Simon Says called "Everglade Collage".  The penguin is from Hero Arts called Baby Penguin Color Layering stamp set.

Here is how I put my card together:

I die cut the Simon Says Everglade Collage wafer thin die which measures 4.4 x 3.25.  I cut another piece of cardstock the same size as the die and used Tim Holtz distress oxide ink Salty Ocean for the background.  I sprayed the background with some water and then added some Sheer Shimmer Spritz Spray Sparkle to give the background some shine.  I used foam tape and put the die cut image and distress background together and then adhered it to the card.

I stamped the penguin with the coordinating colors which are Hero Arts Soft Granite, Charcoal and Black.  I die cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it to the card.  I stamped and die cut the hat and popped it up on the penguin and added the bow tie which I die cut out with plaid paper.  Isn't this penguin the cutest?  This is a must have in your stash!

To finish the card, I added the sentiment which I stamped with versamark on black cardstock and embossed and heat set with Hero Arts white embossing powder.  I die cut it out and used foam tape and added it to my card.

I hope you get a chance to play along with this month’s challenge! All you need to do is use at least one Hero Arts product on your project and follow this month’s theme, "Winter Holiday".
