New Hero Arts website, plus 2015 Christmas products!!

Hero Arts launches its new website today and we're excited for this great new look, plus 2015 Christmas products! Be sure to check it out for amazing inspiration, a fabulous blog, and all sorts of fun new stuff. I'm fortunate to already have some of the new release, with more on the way - I just love Christmas anything and can always find way too much to add to my stash. Here's my card for today:

Christmas Cheer with Holly


I used a new clear set called Holiday Greetings (CL890). Just love this set - 7 fabulous sentiments and all sorts of little bits to make a background or, as I did here, a masked off sentiment. Well, it started as masked but I used the wrong tape and ink bled through - I hate when that happens! So I did my sentiment on a separate panel which I edged in Elmer's silver marker (got it at Target - love!) and popped up with foam tape. Wish my photo had truer colors - the bottom half is actually closer to real life. The mat for the white panel is a piece of Bazzill Gemstones cardstock - more of a silver - looks blue in the photo, oh well....

You can also see a couple more cards I made with 2015 Hero Arts Christmas products here. Many thanks to Hero Arts for their wonderful products and daily inspiration on their blog!! Congrats on a great new look to the website!

This also fits Karren's challenge over on Merry Monday where we are to use holly on a card. Stop and check out all the inspiration over there too. Thanks for stopping!!
