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.

050916web_invites3

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:

Today’s Card: One of a Kind

Hey there! Today I am sharing a card that I based on the design of  the current CAS(E) this Sketch contest (#170). I really liked their design because I thought it was perfect to feature some of the new HA products included in the 2016 Summer Catalog: Hipster Animals and Glasses Bold Prints. I have to point out that all the new HA products will be available at the  HA online store as of May 11!

043016web_oneofakind

I created a card base with Grenadine Layering Paper (Blush Mix). After that, I stamped  the Glasses Bold prints image with Intense Black ink (one of my favorites). I also created another panel from Snow Layering Paper, and I trimmed this one into four uneven parts following the sketch. I adhered two of those parts onto the card base, and then I stamped a sentiment from another fun set called Hipster at Heart with  Intense Black ink. I put Glossy Accents over the letters  to make them puffy and let them dry.

043016web_oneofakind2

To create the focal point, I cut out a 2″ circle from Midnight Layering Paper and I adhered it over the card. Then, I stamped the dog  and hat images over a piece of SSnow Layering Paper  with Intense Black ink. Additionally, I stamped glasses over the dog face, and colored the image with markers. I Die cut the hat and dog images with their matching frame cuts, and then I pt Glossy accents over some of the dog details. Finally, I layered the two pieces over the circle and embellished the card with some enamel dots.

Here you can see the complete new HA Summer Catalog:

Hero Arts Summer Catalogs Sneak Peeks

Today’s sneak peeks are all about adventure. Among the new products included in the 2016 Summer Catalog, there are many fun stamps that are just perfect to create greeting cards or document your journeys…

041116web_advenbegins

The card that I created for today features a clear set called The Adventure Begins, which I love because includes different fun images and sentiments. To create this card, I began by stamping  a woodgrain background over a card base (Foliage Mix Layering Papers) with Moss Hybrid Ink. Then, on a piece of Snow Layering Paper, I stamped the tent along with the sentiment with Black Intense Ink, and the pines with Moss Hybrid Ink.

041116web_advenbegins3

Additionally, I stamped the tent over a piece of red card stock, and I trimmed the image with scissors. After that, I adhered the piece over the panel.  I matted the panel and adhered it over the card base. Finally, I embellished the card with gemstones and hemp.

Hero Arts Summer Catalog Sneak peeks

All the new Paper Layering products by Hero Arts are simply fabulous. Today we are sharing sneak peeks of some of those products that are included in the new 2016 Summer Catalog.

041116web_grateful

My card features the Paper Layering Daisy with Frame. The daisy itself is a pop-up die, that gives the paper a 3-D effect.  I have to say that I really love the frame part. This one allows you to create an independent shape if you need to. This way,  you have the freedom of placing the flower anywhere you want. I  think this daisy is just perfect for a scrapbook page 😉

041116web_grateful2

For this card I used Sunshine Mix Layering Paper and I  layered the flower as follows: frame + daisy w/frame + daisy w/frame. I colored  the center of the flower with ink and a sponge dauber and then, I layered the three shapes.  To create the background I used Foliage Mix Layering Paper, the Bold Daisy Stencil, ink and a sponge dauber. The sentiment Grateful was gold-embossed , and at the end I added some gemstones and pearls.
