A Blog Named Hero Week - Day 3

Hey everyone!  We're already over half-way through our collaboration week with A Blog Named Hero.

They are showcasing projects created with Neat & Tangled stamps and we're playing along with their current challenge, Metallics.

First up today is Sveta:

Hello everyone!

This days I'm thinking about my abroad friends more often, miss them very much! So my idea was to create a card showing that I'm thinking of them no matter where they are.

I choose Origami Map Die and gold cardstock to create main focus of my card. To pin my location (more or less) on the map I used tiny heart from Hand Stitched Dies and inserted a little piece of silver foiled cardstock.

We're all communicating via web, so I decided to show it with lines using  Across the Card stamp set.

Finally, I chose Crystal Clear Sequins to add accents to my work.

I hope that you'll always be connected with all your friends and relatives in your hearts, no matter if you are together or apart!

Yana is also sharing today:

I started working on this card by creating a small rectangle using new Neat & Tangled Bokeh circles. I selected Soft and Lovely and adhered them onto a piece of white cardstock using specialty adhesive sheets. To trim off the edges I used a Stitched Rectangle die and cut this piece onto a nice rectangle and foam mounted it onto a white A2 card base. 

I also die cut a Hello word out of Gold Mirror cardstock, heat embossed a "you make life sparkle" in gold embossing powder and adhered those onto the rectangle. To dress up this card I also added several enamel dots in blue and two gold hearts created using Hand Stitched dies.

Beautiful cards ladies!
