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.

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!

Hello Bluebird / Portrait Pals

Portrait Pals 

Hello everyone!
 It's time to celebrate the newest additions to Hello Bluebird.  Today is the last day of inspiration before all the adorable sets release for February!


I am such a fan of critter stamps.  Introducing some new critters.......Portrait Pals!  These pair easily with the new Photo Stack Dies.

I Copic colored my Koala, Tiger, and Elephant and die cut using the coordinating dies.  I ink blended some Twisted Citron Distress Ink in the photo frames and added my critters.  I ink blended some die cut foliage, Tropical Foliage Die, and added them behind my critters.  I added my black Polaroid frames, a few gems, and two stamped sentiments from Typed Everyday.

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

It's Easter time soon and we have Easter Wishes, Easter Word Die, and Egg Window Die releasing this week.

I started my card with a piece of white woodgrain cardstock and ink blended Tumbled Glass Distress Ink in the upper and lower portions of the paper.  A white panel was die cut using the Card Front Element Builder and Bundled Sage Distress Ink was blended in from the center (I didn't care about harsh lines in the center because I will be die cutting the Egg Window out of the center.)  When die cut with the Egg Window Die, I was left with beautiful soft green foliage.  I added this panel with foam adhesive to my woodgrain cardstock.  

The sentiment and bunny were die cut from Rose Gold Glitzy Cardstock and added to the card.  To finish the sentiment, I rose gold embossed the 'blessings' under the die cut Easter.  As finishing touches, I added a fluffy white pom pom for a tail and some Expresso gems from Pretty Pink Posh.

Hello everyone!
 It's time to celebrate the newest additions to Hello Bluebird.  We continue to share the adorable sets releasing for February!


Get ready for Easter with some adorable sets coming out this Friday!  Easter Egg Hunt is just one of two sets releasing.

Nothing screams spring more than gingham!  I started with stamping a pink background using the Country Gingham Background.  I added some die cut grass and clouds using the Grassy Knoll Dies.  My frame was done with the Gallery Frame #2 Dies and was lighted brushed with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.  My images were Copic colored and added with foam adhesive for dimension.

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

Today's card is probably my favorite of the release!  I LOVE this new set called Tutti Fruiti.  My husband and I LOVE margaritas and thought this would be fitting for Valentine's Day!

I had so much fun stamping all the fruit from this set, so stay tuned there will be more coming soon!  For all my fruit, I used Avery Elle Pigment Inks (or Fresh Inks if you have them).  Pigment inks give AMAZING coverage for solid stamps.  No splotchiness that you get from some dye inks.  

I paired my limes with one of my all time favorite die sets from SugarPea Designs called Postage Stamp CoverPlate.  I die cut all the hearts and postage stamp out of cardstocks and layered them onto a striped paper from Spots & Stripes Brights Paper Pad.  I stamped little sentiment strips and hand trimmed a banner edges.  I tucked them behind my limes (that were embellished with coarse glitter from Avery Elle) and added a few lime green gems!
