Hero Arts 2019 Catalog Blog Hop...




Hello there and welcome to the Hero Arts 2019 Catalog Hop!  There are so may fabulous new products in the catalog and I have several things to share!  Keep scrolling to see my projects, to check out the full blog hop list and also to see how you can win a prize! 

First up, here is a card using the new background stamp called Mail Jumble Background....

IMG_8538

Instead of using it as intended, I cut up some of the envelopes and added them to a white card base with foam tape.  I added in a little sentiment from the new set called Sending Smiles by heat embossing on a little banner to add another pop of color.

This next card uses Flower Garden Bold Prints....

I stamped this one in black ink and then added in some color using Copic Markers.  I die cut the new hello die in black fun foam and black card stock for a 3D sentiment.  The new word dies in the catalog are some of my favorites!

One last clean and simple card...

I used the Abstract Graphic Texture die on the card base of this card.  I added in a butterfly from the Color Layering Monarch Butterly sent.  I adore this set and how beautifully it colors up the image with different layers of ink.  Last, I die cut a a rectangle of vellum using the Rounded Rectangle Infinity Die  and heat embossed the sentiment.  I added that to the card front with foam tape to finish off the card.
