A Blog Named Hero: Clean Up Your Act!

Hi friends! Danielle here with a card for the next A Blog Named Hero challenge. This might be my favorite so far :) Clean and simple!

I know, I know, it's early for holiday cards but I have been trying to brainstorm ideas for some Christmas cards now, so I'm not flailing at the last minute. This challenge was perfect excuse to test some of my ideas, because clean and simple is a must when mass producing (at least for me!). Here is one of the options I came up with...

I love this little Hero Arts reindeer!  I paper pieced his sweater, and then paired him up with the "reindeer approved" sentiment from Neat and Tangled's Santa's Notes set. Lately I haven't been able to resist my flair buttons, so I threw one of those on their too for something fun!  Here is a little close up

While I do love this card, and it is CAS, there is a little too much work involved (twine, paper piecing, button, etc) to mass produce. Although I might make a set with different sweaters and buttons to give as a gift :)

Be sure to play along! You have a chance to win $25 to Simon Says Stamp!



  1. Absolutely delightful!! I adore EVERYTHING about this card, Danielle!

  2. What a perfectly adorable card, Danielle! I love your all your elements, but I HAVE to have those buttons! I am addicted to all things BUTTON!

  3. Wow! Danielle this is sooo adorable and gorgeous! LOVE everything about this card :)

  4. I love how you cluster elements on one part of the card and still maintain CAS.

  5. OMG, this is SOOOO freakin' adorable!!!!! LOVE this card!!! Just picked up this Hero Arts stamp set at Michaels last week while in Michigan!!! And hey, you used KRAFT instead of white!! (; Beautiful work as always!

  6. Genius. Adorable reindeer in a sweater, a chevron button (swoon), the mound of snow behind him, and a clever use of a N&T stamp to create a background. Your cards are so inspiring!!!
