Repeat After Me! "A Blog Named Hero's" July Repetition Challenge!


I'm finally back crafting a bit!  Hope you are doing well!  The complete tutorial is at my YouTube Channel linked below.

Our "A Blog Named Hero" challenge this month is "repetition."  When I started in the 1990s (horse and buggy days for stampers) repeating was a daunting task.  Although there are other ways to repeat now, the MISTI tool was a game changer for me and most every other stamper I know.  So may new techniques!  A higher price point than some tools, but save up because it's worth it!

Today I used a tiny stamp from Hero Arts "Color Layering Sea and Sky."  I'm not great at scene building, so was glad to find a use for this Adirondack chair!  Once it's set up (I'll show you on YT tutorial--hard to explain here) it's easy, peasy!  I stamped on the smallest Trinity Mini-Slimline Die rectangle, then layered on the medium one with yellow cardstock, then layered onto the largest black rectangle and adhered to a mini-slimline base.  I added a few embellishments and I was done.  One of the cards is actually a salvaged boo-boo!  Guess which one!  The answer will be in the tutorial!  

Be sure to enter the challenge for a chance to win one of two generous Hero Arts gift cards!!!

The supplies are linked below (AFIL-Thank you so much!):

Take care,
