I was honored to be a Hero Hostess (facilitator on their Flickr Group
) back in 2011. Thanks to Hero Arts for including me in their Hostess family and on this fun hop!! I'm delighted to showcase some new goodies from their 2016 winter catalog. I found so many great products I couldn't resist. One such item - Kelly's Winter Planner; I just love the little winter icons in this set. I started with the bitty Christmas tree and Merry Christmas sentiment, adding them to the new Infinity tag dies (they are amazing!). The Infinity Rectangles dies made layering a breeze! And I just had to use a PEACE die cut (my new favorite word die). I must mention how much I love Hero Arts Layering Paper - I have every color but especially adore the Pool used here.
Ink - Tim Holtz Dusty Concord Distress Ink, Ranger Archival Watering Can by Wendy Vecchi
Next up - a card with CG697 Blizzard Bold Prints
- my new favorite background! I just love the 6x6 size and it's so perfect stamped on the card base behind the gold embossed ornaments from DC186 Ornaments Stamp & Cut
(layered on a piece of bokeh paper). The Let's Be Merry sentiment came from CM100 Christmas Messages
- I just love this set for its variety. More layering paper - I used Pine for this card base.
And finally, here's a shaker card using the darling mittens from CL999 Holiday Mittens
. The sentiment comes from DC193 Kelly's S'mitten Stamp & Cut
. The Rectangle Infinity dies helped immensely when creating my shaker!! The shaker elements are a mix of sequins and chunky glitter I bought at Michael's. The vellum covering the shaker window came from a Hero Arts monthly card kit; it's not available in their store.
