Hero Arts 2018 Catalog Blog Hop



I am super excited to be joining in with so may creative ladies today, in sharing the new stamps and dies from the 2018 Hero Arts Catalog.  If you are following along on the hop, you are stopping in here from my sweet friend, Heather's blog.  Today, I have one card showcasing a new set and one card showcasing a stencil and stamp and cut that is already available.  

This first, clean and simple card, was created using the new set called Layered Topiary Stamp and Cut....

Untitled

First, I scored the top and bottom of the card base every half inch, leaving the middle open for the stamped image and sentiment.  I stamped the topiary top bottom and middle, die cut each piece and then popped them up on foam tape.  I added that sentiment in last, to finish off this simple card.  I did go back in and add a little Copic color to the Topiary pot.  I love that it added to the color and gave it a little depth.

This next card, was fun to make.  I masked off the card base every 3/4" and then added in some ink blending over the Delicate Petals Stencil...

I added score lines to the edge of each stenciled area for a little texture.  Next, I stamped the blooms and leaves from You're So Lovely and added then to the card front.  The sentiment is one of my favorite from Hero Arts Stamp and Cut line.  I first die cut happy in white card stock, then again in black fun foam.  I attached it to the card and then stamped birthday right below in black ink.  The black provides a unique and fun contrast from the rest of the bright white card base.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects today.  Your next stop on the hop is over to an amazing crafter, Claire Prezzia.
