Hi everyone - it's the last day to enter for the chance to win prizes from the 2015 Hero Hostess Blog hop!
You have until 11:59 US PST (Hero Arts time in California!) today 2/22/15 to leave comments on any one of these Hero Arts blog posts:
here from Day 2).
I've had loads of fun creating with some new 2015 Hero Arts goodies - link here to shop from the catalog; it's fabulous!! I mentioned in my hop post that I make a lot of thank you cards - so here I am, back with a couple more quick ones. Here's card one:
This card uses a die from the Thanks Stamp & Cut - love, love love this set! The funny part - yesterday I received an order which I placed on Tuesday for more Hero Arts 2015 goodies. But what do I do?? I immediately ink up the free gift, a stamp from Karen at Art Plus which came with my order. It's a darling Hero Arts flower - don't know the # because there isn't one printed on it and it's not in the online store anymore. I hope someone will recognize it and tell me, but it matches a large HA design block I have around here somewhere.... UPDATE: it's from a 4 piece woodblock set LP206 Words and Flowers with limited availability in the online store (see comments - thanks to my friend Heather for finding it!!)
I colored the flower image with Copic markers, used some Basic Grey Evergreen papers and a card made from Hero Arts designer layering papers, added some gems/pearls - DONE!! This next card is an "almost" one layer. I could've made it a one layer as I have the Thanks stamp in the same set with the Thanks die but instead I went for a die cut made from a scrap of Basic Grey paper - don't ask which line.... When I first received the Thanks Stamp & Cut set from Hero Arts, I die cut a bunch of these Thanks words from many kinds and colors of paper. I sent some to a couple of friends to try too - I like to enable - LOL! Here's the card:
I made a card base from Hero Arts Swallows layering paper and stamped directly on it with a new-to-me background I'm just loving: Tiny Snowflake Grid - this has such a happy, Nordic feel, in my opinion; it's part of the Hero Arts/Basic Grey Evergreen line. Then I stamped one of the little phrases from the Thanks Stamp & Cut set in black over top of the background. I proceeded to eliminate this card from one-layer status by adding the Thanks die cut - oh well... The die cut is very flexible where the letters connect so I have able to arrange it in a bit of an arch - very fun.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope, if you entered for a prize from Hero Arts, that your name gets picked!
