Hero Arts / Spring 2020 Release / Blog Hop

Paper Layering Plant and Stand2 

I'm excited to share inspiration using some of the new products that are available NOW over at Hero Arts.  This is part of the Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop going on today!

I had so much fun creating with these sets that I have three cards to share!



Shop the entire Hero Arts Collection.......HERE!


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

My first card uses the Paper Layering Plant and Stand for a masculine card for my husband.  He recently won an award for writing a commercial for radio.  This will be perfect!  

I die cut many of the leaves from three different colors of cardstock along with some free hand stems.  My pot was die cut and distressed with some grey ink.  It was added with foam adhesive nestled inside the triple layered cardstock for the plant stand.  Everything was adhered to a white notecard that was ink blended with Broken China Distress Ink and a thin cardstock strip to ground my image.  I added a simple black die cut 'Congrats' from the Congrats Happy Stamp & Cut.

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

My second card uses Zest Wishes........this set just screams SPRING to me and fresh lemonade!

Zest Wishes 

I kept this incredibly CAS by using some black/white washi tape for grounding my images.  The lemons were Copic colored and die cut.  On the black dots of the lemons, chunky glitter was added.  My lemon slice was adhered with foam adhesive.  A few tiny gems were added and a simple sentiment was stamped below the washi strip.

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

My last card uses the Watering Can and Flowers Fancy Die to create a card for any occasion!

Watering Can and Flowers Fancy Die

My white notecard was prepped using Broken China Distress Ink but masking off the bottom two inches.  Doing this does two things.  It leaves a spot to stamp the sentiment and creates a CAS area to add my watering can embellishment.  The tulips were Copic colored and arranged in the watering can along with some die cut leaves.  To keep them in place, they were taped to the watering can on the back.  The watering can was adhered with foam adhesive since there was so much dimension already from the tulips/leaves.  To finish this, a simple sentiment, from Hello Stamp & Cut, was stamped in black ink.

Congrats to your Hubs and Happy Valentine's Day! Love all three cards. I think that watering can full of flowers is too sweet. Hero has outdone itself again this year, I have absolutely drooled over this catalog for days. I have to budget myself somewhat so my first purchase will be the Heroscapes, sunflowers...
