2011 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop!

Welcome to the 2011 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop! I am so honored to hopping along with these amazing bloggers and with our good friends, Hero Arts! I could help but make quite a few cards with these wonderful new stamps! Check them out below!


I used two new stamp sets and one old fav for these mini cards. I stamped the new Hand Drawn Small Flower F5493 and colored them with Copics in pink, orange and yellow. I stamped the old fav Circle Lace S5319 for a tone on tone background on these Hero Arts layering papers. The sentiment is from the new set Just Saying Hi CL502. I dyed some baker’s twine with antique linen ink to tone down the color and wrapped it around. Add some Glossy Accents to the center of the flower, and these quick and easy mini cards are done!


I am so in love with these new silhouette stamps! They are called 3 Silhouettes LP195, and the other two are just as adorable! I used white card stock to create all of the pieces staining them with Antique Linen, Old Paper and Vintage Photo Distress Inks. I stamped another old fav Old Letter Writing S4878 as the background. I love the idea of these sweet silhouettes as cameos. So pretty!

One more happy card! I created the background by stamping the new Hand Drawn Small Flower F5493 in poppy chalk ink by Hero Arts all over the card base allowing them to overlap. It made such a cool background! The sentiment is super sweet and from the new set Sending Smiles Messages CL490, and the new Flower Swirl Vine K5486 is SO fun to color! I stapled some ribbon with my Tiny Attacher and this cheery card was done!
