Hero Arts / Celebrating 45 years! / Giveaways!



Hello and Welcome!  
I am so excited to be celebrating 45 years of Hero Arts!  It's their anniversary and they have released a new summer 2019 catalog.  It is full of stamps from the vault and some new ones too!  


Hero Arts has been one of my favorite companies over the years.......since I starting stamping, Hero Arts wood mounted stamps were some of my firsts!!



**********************************

I love the Seas the Day Seagulls stamps and I've paired them with the Wave & Sea Confetti Die.  

I ink blended a white panel with blue ink and die cut with the Wave & Sea Confetti Die letting some of the pieces fall out.  I wanted the scattered look to the die for a sky and adhered this panel to a white note card.  I Copic colored the images and die cut using the Seas the Day Seagulls Dies.  I hand cut a piece of kraft cardstock for my "beach" and added "sand" with Copics E44, E43, and a white pigment pen.  My images were added with foam adhesive and a sentiment was stamped in the lower right corner of my beach.

CM276 Seas The Day Seagulls
**********************************

Let's hop around and see what everyone has made using the summer catalog!!  See below for prize information!


Winners will be drawn from people who leave comments along the blog hop over the three days - comment all three days for more chances to win! Comment by Sunday, June 2 at 11:59pm PST, and the winners will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
