Hero Arts Winter 2020 Catalog Release Blog Hop

Hello and welcome!

Today we are celebrating the launch of the Winter 2020 Catalog Release in the Hero Arts store with a fun inspirational Blog Hop. As of today, you can see and get all the new fabulous Winter products at the HA store. Very exciting! Check it out:

Winter Catalog 2020

As part of this hop, I created two cards. For the first card, I used the Color Layering Gingerbread House Combo. This combo includes a stamp set and matching frame cuts. The color layering stamp sets are a lot of fun to play with and the Misti Mini Hero Black or the Misti Regular Black are a great help when using this kind of stamps.

So, I created a plaid background and then, I adhered this panel over a folded card. Next, I stamped the cute gingerbread house using different colors of ink. Additionally, I stamped the small images and I die cut all the images.

I continued to stamp the sentiment over a white cardstock square and I adhered it over the card with foam tape. I adhered the house and other tiny images also with foam tape to add dimension. Last but not least, I finish off this card with some enamel dots and some Glaze details.

The second card features the Fawn and Friends Combo and I paired it with a sentiment from a set called Comfort and Joy Messages.

This time I created a subtle background over a white panel. I adhered this panel onto a folded card . I also used the Staircase Fancy Die to be part of the background for the cute friends there. The doggie and kitty were simply stamped with black ink, colored with watercolors and die cut with their matching frame cuts.

I complemented the card with a sentiment an some gifts images also included in the Comfort and Joy Messages set. I colored those too and I finish off my card with some Glaze details and some enamel dots.

  6. The Fawn & Friends set I find really cute with many uses year round. Your cards are cute with the seasonal sentiments. Thanks for sharing.

  7. There are so many beautiful designs on the hop… but I have to admit it was Wonderful to see a more traditional card. I love that darling gingerbread house!

  9. I love the nostalgia you brought into the gingerbread house with the plaid background and the candy spilling off the white focal panel. That gingerbread set is a must have, and it has to be against red plaid. I can’t see it any other way now.

    • I love both of your cards, but I gotta say I’m head over heels over the kitty and puppy card!!! Love that you pulled the staircase from a previous release.

  10. Such sweet cards (pun intended)! I have always loved gingerbread houses. Love your use of the staircase to create a scene with those cute pets. Thanks for sharing!

  11. Thank you for giving me some much needed inspiration Mariana. Your cards are great, and I definitely need that gingerbread house. 💗

  12. Both cards are adorable. That gingerbread house is really cute, and who doesn’t love a little pup and kitty on a Christmas card!

  13. Lovely cards! I especially like the last one, and am crazy about the stair case die. It is perfect for Christmas but also so many other occasions- a wedding, graduation, etc.

  14. What sweet cards! I particularly love how you beautiful colored dog and kitty are waiting for their owners to get up Christmas morning so the present opening can begin– so cute and creative!

  15. The gingerbread house is so very cute and the dog and kitten are adorable. Wonderful cards – so cheerful and colorful! Thanks for sharing!
