2016 Valentine’s Collection is Here

Hello and welcome to an inspirational blog hop featuring the 2016 Hero Arts Valentine’s Collection.


This new collection is full of great products that are perfect to create cards and other Valentine’s projects. Of course, as part of this release, Hero Arts has a fabulous GIVEAWAY that consists of one collection of clear stamps and dies from the release.  ONE lucky commenter will be picked from comments left on the participant blogs. You have until 11:59pm PST on Sunday, December 13th to leave your comments. The winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog next week.

As part of the festivities, I created a project using two wonderful sets from the collection:  Love Stamp & Cut and  Floral Heart Stamp & Cut by Lia


… and here is the card that I created with them:


I began by making the background using the Floral Heart shape, some sponges, and a few Shadow Ink colors. Here is a one minute video where you can see how I did it:

After that, I adhered the panel over a black card base. Next, I die-cut the word Love twice from black card stock and from black foam. Then, I adhered them onto the card.  I also stamped a complementary sentiment with black ink. Finally, I embellished the card with some yummy enamel dots.

Well, that is all from me today. It is time for you to continue finding more inspiration:

  1. WOW Mariana, how pretty. What a fantastic idea using the sponges just as a stamp for the background. I really love how you used the heart as a stencil. Great work!

  2. So beautiful and cheery! TY for sharing! Thanks for bringing back a vintage Hero Arts technique! They invented the sponge background, didn’t they?!🙂
