BlogHop_700

Welcome to the Hero Arts Launch Party Blog Hop! If you are coming from talented Lucy Abrams‘ blog, you are in the right direction!

This hop is a celebration of the brand new Hero Arts website, which was launched on Tuesday, as well as a creative showcase of the new 2015 Holiday Collection. One of the things that I want to point out is that Hero Arts has a new shipping policy:  FREE shipping on US orders of $50 or more! No code needed. Isn’t that great? Anyway, there is more….

••• GIVEAWAY •••

Hero Arts is giving away one GRAND PRIZE $100 shopping spree. The winner will be randomly chosen from all of the blog hop comments received by 11:59pm PST on Tuesday, September 8th. Please check the Hero Arts blog for the announcement of the winner.

Well, for this special occasion I made a couple of cards featuring some of the new products. It was hard to decide which products to use, since all of them are fabulous! At the end I decided to use a pretty woodblock stamp along with a Stamp & Cut set to create this card:

090315web_joyI have to say that the new Ombré inks are simply amazing. I stamped the Poinsettia with Berries woodblock stamp using Lime to Forever Green Ombré Ink…. and I just love how pretty the solid images look! Then, I die-cut the word Joy from layering paper and foamy. I also stamped some complementary words with Black Dye Ink, and I embellished the card with some red sequins :)

Here the complete list of supplies to create this card:

Poinsettia with Berries
Joy Stamp & Cut
Lime to Forever Green Ombré Ink
Black Dye Ink
Blush Mixed Layering Paper
Snow Layering Paper


My second card is quite simple and features another fabulous set that belongs to the Kelly Purkey Collection. This set is a  3″ x 4″ clear set called Kelly’s Noel. I also used the Lime to Forever Green Ombré Ink for the pine trees, and Black Dye Ink to stamp the sentiment. This sentiment is included in a 4″ x 6″ clear set called Animal Blessings. At the end, I added some yellow gemstones as embellishment.

This is the same technique of the second card presented on the video, and let me tell you that it is really fun to make these backgrounds. I used the Mum Cutting Set by Lia, as well as a stamp set called Friends. The Ink is Bubble Gum MId-Tone Shadow Ink, and Black Dye Ink.

Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another project.

Thanks for stopping by   :) Have a wonderful crafty rest of the week!

Instead of just using one color for the butterflies, I created a tricolor gradient effect with Shadow Inks. The color combination that I used is Fresh Peach, Soft Vanilla and Mint Julep.  The die cut shape is called Delicate Butterfly Fancy Die, which is currently one of my favorite shapes!  I also used Black Dye InkDaffodil Layering Paper and some pretty sequins :)

Well, that’s all from me for today, I will be back soon to share another project.

I created the background of this card using different colors of ink and stamps from Color Layering Graphic Flowers and Congrats Stamp & Cut sets. This last set, is one of my favorites right now. I like that you can combine the sentiments with complementary words and that you have the option to die cut the main sentiment :D

Well, I hope you have a great weekend! Thank you for visiting! :)
