All the products included in the kit and the add-ons are amazing,  perfect for your  Winter projects . So here is the card I made using a couple of stamps from the main kit, and the Skyline add-on set:


To create my card, I simply silver-emboss the falling snow stamp over a Snow Layering paper panel. I die-cut the skyline shapes using silver cardstock and I layered them over the white panel.


I adhered the panel onto a card base and I stamped a sentiment over a strip of snow layering paper. I matted it with a strip of a darker blue cardstock strip underneath. At the end, I embellished the card with a few sequins and blue gemstones.

Well, as part of this release, Hero Arts is giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Here is the list of bloggers so you can get lots of inspiration:

  1. Ohhhhhhh…. I like how you did the skyline and the bridge in silver paper. At first it looked like skyline in silver paper and bridge in vellum, but was I happily surprised. This card kit is amazingly wonderful for holiday stamping and die cutting, along with the add-ons. Thanks for your quite inspirational card. Great job.

  4. We recently got a new bridge that looks somewhat
    like the one in the kit. It will be fun using it on
