Hero Arts 2019 Catalog Blog Hop & Giveaways


Hello!  Welcome to the Hero Arts 2019 Catalog Blog Hop!  There is so much inspiration and gorgeous work to be seen by the talented Hero Arts Design Team and special guests. 



There are many new products and I am sharing just a few of them so make sure to follow along the blog hop below!!  I have 3 cards to share.....let's get started.

Flower Garden4

My first card uses the Flower Garden Fancy Die and the new Hello Message Fancy DieI started with a white notecard and ink blended Distress Inks in Twisted Citron, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Shaded Lilac, and Squeezed Lemonade onto specific areas.I layered a white die cut Flower Garden over the top.  

I added a die cut Hello Message Fancy Die ink blended with Worn Lipstick.  This was layered over a vellum strip and white gems were added for some sparkle.

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

My second card uses the Flower Garden Fancy Die in more of a bold way by die cutting it out of black cardstock from Hero Arts.  Adhered the die cut to a white panel and layered it over a pool color cardstock from Hero Arts.  I would encourage you to try the cardstock Hero Hues sampler pack.....you can feel the thickness and slight texture.

Flower Garden

I added my sentiments from the Smile Stamp & Cut and trimmed the banner at an angle.  My photo looks speckled but it's actually been sprayed with lots of Sheer Shimmer Spritz.  It's gorgeous IRL.

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

My third card uses a new stamp set called New Day Butterflies and I've paired it with the Abstract Graphic Texture Die for a very CAS card.

New Day Butterflies

My butterfly white black heat embossed so I could water color using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  I added it to a white notecard that was layered with the Abstract Graphic Texture Die done in white.  A simple black sentiment strip and a few gems finish this card.

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

And did you see the new Mail Delivery stamp set that was a collaboration with all the stamp companies from Creativation's Stamping Village?  100% of the net profits made from this collaboration will benefit The Dreaming Zebra Foundation.  I've made some envelope labels using white sticky paper!

Flowers and butterflies. . .what could be better?

Gwen Simmons said...

Amy, loved the flower die cut card! I initially thought they were small die cuts adhered to your distress oxide smooshed background base, but then I realized it was a cover plate type die cut. How ingenious of HA!!! TFS and clarifying my faux pas! 😘✨👍🏾

Very lovely and beautiful cards!!

Teri Smith said...

Amy you've made 3 beautiful cards. I like the way you used the Flower Garden Fancy Die in white on top of that soft blended background & how elegant it looked. Then, wham! the boldness of it in black on white card stock. Great idea! Then there is the butterfly. sigh... The Abstract Graphic Texture Die was a perfect choice for the background I think because in the summer I'll stand in the yard & watch a butterfly & they zig & zag in their flight looking for just the right place to land. Thanks!

bj martin said...

So pretty! Love all the soft colors!

Laurie B. said...

Beautiful cards! Great examples of dramatically different looks from the same die.

Using that die shows how versital it can be. Must add that to my wish list! Thanks for sharing.

Unknown said...

Amy - you encourage me to create - even when our lives are busy and seem "full". Your cards are classy and are achievable with the limited time that a busy Family Practice solo practitioner, Mom, several community service projects, etc. - could actually achieve! Thank you so much!!
