2013 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop

Welcome to …


Today I am joining this fun Blog Hop showcasing the new 2013 Hero Arts Catalog 🙂 If you are coming from Kelly Goree’s blog, I am sure that by now  you are full of inspiration after visiting so many blogs of talented designers, right? …And if not, please hope over the Hero Arts blog to start the fun 😉 As always, Hero Arts will be giving away several prize packs, with winners randomly chosen from ALL of the blog hop comments received by midnight PST on Monday, December 17 🙂 Please notice that my comment link is located at the beginning of this post, right below the title↑↑↑ 😀

So here is my first design for the hop:


I couldn’t resist stamping those darling owls…They are, along with the heart and sentiment from a clear set called: Howl Are You (CL675). The branch is from Love Jar (CL673) and the background was created with a fabulous woodblock stamp called (S5637) 🙂

And here is my second design…

This card features two woodblock stamps: Scalloped Flower and Thinking of You sentiment. I created a colorful background by stamping several times the flower using different color of inks… I just wanted to make my card  look happy 🙂

Anyway, I hope you liked what I have created for this special occasion, now is time for you to hop over the…

  12. The little pair of love owls on the branch are adorable! The eyes really add a lot, as do her flirty eyelashes. The bright flowers are screaming “spring is on its way!” even though we haven’t even reached the official start of winter yet. Both cards are fun and wonderful.

  13. I love the owl card it is so cute and creative …i never would have thought to use the branch from the jar stamp like that …..the thinking of you card with the flower is so cute too …

  14. Both cards are lovely, but I fell in love with those adorable owls for the Hero Arts set! You did such a great job with them, love the eyes. . . Lol! This has been a fun hop, filled with inspiration and now I have to win so I can afford all the stamps I want! Thanks for hosting us.

  15. Both background stamps look so lovely! The first one is subtle and elegant, while the second is bold and floral. I love what you did with the owls; those googly eyes are darling!

  16. You always amaze. Both cards really showcase the new Hero Arts stamps. I particularly love the second card which is so colorful and has the “make your own patterned paper” look.

  17. These are both phenomenal cards. I confess a weakness for the owls on the branch…so sweet. The colors you chose are wonderfully warm and vivid. And the background is fabulous!

  18. great card… i saw the dot background stamp in person, but didn’t like it – it looks way better used than plain in person… thanks for sharing

  19. Totally cute cards. The jewels on the branch, the sleepy eyes on the owl, the pattern on the heart. Great look! I’m loving that dot background stamp. And that flower card is just so happy. Who wouldn’t want to receive that? Thanks so much for brightening my day!
