Hero Arts Summer Release Blog Hop

Welcome to the…

Hero Arts Summer Release Blog Hop

If you are coming from Lydia Fiedler’s blog you are in the right direction 😀 Today I am very excited to be part of this fun hop which marks the launch of all the new Summer products  in the Hero Arts store 😉

So as part of the celebration, I am sharing two invitations that I specially created for the Summer Catalog. This invites feature two new awesome sets:  Invitation Themes and Party Themes.


These two sets include lots of sentiments, and they can be used to complement each other. Are you having a celebration soon? Well, with this pair you can customize your invitations the way you need.


The designs of the invites I am sharing today are quite simple; on both of them I used a Snow layering paper panel over a mat of Daffodil and Iris layering paper colors respectively.  On the first sample I used a fun woodblock stamp called Piñata which was stamped over the main panel  with  Neon Chartreuse to Blue Ink. I complemented it with some banners from Make a Wish Birthday stamp set, a main sentiment, as well as the information sentiments.


On the second sample, I used some images from a stamp set called Town Essentials along with Neon Red to Purple ink. I also stamped a main sentiment, and information sentiments. On both of the invites I used gemstones as the final touches.

Well, that’ all from me today. Your next hop stop will be the talented May Sukyong ParkPlease be sure to visit all the participant blogs for more inspiration and for the chance to win a fabulous prize:
