We are so excited to join our wonderful friends at Hero Arts to celebrate their 45th anniversary! Congratulations to Aaron and the Hero Arts team! Thank you all so much for all you do for this creative, crafty community!
We are happy to hop to with so many friends today, you can find today’s full hop list below. This is the third day of the 3 day hop so if you’ve missed the first two days check out the Hero Arts blog for all the hop stops!
We’ve asked two of our long-time Fawnies, Ivy and Nancy, who met in the Hero Arts Flickr group many years ago, to share their creativity and memories with you! And be sure to read all about the the special blog hop giveaways at the end of this post!
Ivy used the Hang in There Potted Plants set from Hero Arts to create a beautiful card to celebrate a new home! She combined the water-colored plants with papers from Spring Fling and Spiffy Speckles!
“I don’t remember how I stumbled onto the Hero Arts blog back in 2008. Am I glad I did! I have met many good friends over the years through the Hero Arts Flickr group! There are some virtual crafty friends that I’ve never met but have gotten to know very well, and many that I have met in real life. Some even local!
Hero Arts is a constant place for inspiration and support! I have learned so much about stamping and I am so glad to be a part of this stamping community. ” Ivy
Ivy shared a peek at her “vintage” Hero Arts wood mount stamp sets on Instagram!
Nancy’s card features old and new Hero Arts sets! She used Teacup Flowers to make the pretty flower arrangement to coordinate with the Spring Fling paper. Then she added a bit of whimsy to the teacup with letters from the 1998 set of Serendipity Letters and Numbers!
“I had the great pleasure to meet so many wonderful friends and learn so much about cardmaking and stamping while participating in all the fun at the Hero Arts Flickr group! Connecting with crafty friends, sharing ideas and comments was part of the fun that Hero Arts sponsored! I’m so happy to share in this blog hop to celebrate 45 amazing years with the wonderful people at Hero Arts!” Nancy
“This is my first Hero Arts stamp! I bought it sometime in the late 1980s to stamp in all of my boys’ books! Unfortunately, after it was loaned to a friend, it never found its way back to me, but hopefully this adorable Teddy Bear Bookplate is still being stamped in little kid’s books!” Nancy
I absolutely love hearing about Nancy and Ivy’s Hero Arts stories. I also met so many wonderful crafty friends in the Hero Arts Flickr group, and I am so grateful to the creative and kind community Hero has created!
