Hero Arts / Winter 2020 Catalog Blog Hop / Giveaways

Happy Holidays2

Hello Winter!
  I am so not ready for winter (I'm a summer girl!) but I am excited to share some holiday creations using some of the new items from Hero Arts!



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

My first card uses the beautiful Snowflake Pattern Cover Plate and while this is not a new product in the catalog, it is new to me!  

Distress Inks in Broken China, Cracked Pistachio, Spun Sugar, and Shaded Lilac were ink blended onto two panels.  The Snowflake Pattern Cover Plate was die cut out of a thick white glitter cardstock which was so hard to capture in the photo!  The Holidays Message Fancy Die was die cut out of the second ink blended panel and then backed with a layer of grey (off set) and then a layer of white card stock for dimension.  It really makes the words pop off the card!

Happy Holidays

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

My second card uses a new set to the catalog........Stocking Bouquet.

Stocking 

Creating the background was done using Versamark ink and several of the images from the set onto kraft cardstock.  My stocking and all its florals were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating Stocking Bouquet Frame Cuts.  After the florals were arranged in my stocking, I added it across a sentiment strip in kraft to look like a mantel.  Stickles (clear) were added for a bit of shine!
