Fabulous Fridays with Kate - Hero Arts Stamp and Texture Embossing Sets

Kate's video today shows some of the great possibilities from this new Hero Arts/Sizzix collaboration.

Don't just stamp your paper.....don't just emboss your paper, but use this combination set to emboss your stamped image.

The sets are versatile and work with your Cuttlebug, Spellbinder's Wizard or, of course, your Sizzix Big Shot compatible products.

Kate's video suggests the use of chalk in for this type of work and, in addition, my experience is that this product/technique works well with white or color core paper.

The product comes in several patterns including Christmas, holidays, botanicals, and florals...all, of course, available at

Take a peek at this weeks video from won't be disappointed.

This card is from the Hero Arts Blog using the Birds N Trees product

You can see how the images are raised right where they are cool is that.  This card also uses the letterpress feature of these sets....the embossing folder itself is inked (in this case with light blue) to apply the color only to the areas that will not be embossed.  First the trees are stamped in green on the white paper...then the background blue is used with the embossing folder letterpress style....this puts the blue background in and embosses the trees...all at the same time.

Hope you enjoy this Fabulous Friday with Kate ....the second installment from Guest Designer Jessica Danger will be posted tomorrow.
