Hello! Earlier this month, I shared my first project as a Guest for the Stay Crafty with a Blog Named Hero challenge. The theme is “Hip to Be Square.” You can check out that post HERE. Today, I went in a very different direction with the style of my card and gave it a Craftsman or Mid-Century vibe. Think…if Frank Lloyd Wright made a card, it might look like this.

I wanted to literally think outside the box with this, while making my squares, so I grabbed the corner stamp from the February 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit and stamped it twice to create a square. I had inked it up with Shady Lane VersaFine Clair ink and colored in my square with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens. I repeated this process a few times and then cut out all of my squares.
I really liked one of the border stamps also from that same kit, so I stamped it on to brown cardstock and heat embossed it with a metallic green powder. Then I attached 4 of the squares directly on the cardstock, and popped up the 5th with foam. I stamped out a sentiment from the May 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit and added that on top. Then the panel was adhered to a white card base.
I love the vibe of this card. I really like the colors and the architectural feel it has. I’d like to give a huge thank you to Hero Arts for having me as a Guest this month. This challenge was definitely though-provoking, but I had a fantastic time creating both of my cards. I hope you’ll join the challenge.
