Hero Arts Winter Catalog Blog Hop + Giveaway

by May Park-

Hello, and welcome to the Hero Arts 2017 Winter Catalog Blog Hop. If you came from the amazing Michelle Short’s blog, you are right on track! To celebrate a release of 2017 Winter Catalog Collection, I created FOUR cards. Here are what I came up with:

For my first card, I placed my stencil over the A2 size Fog Gray cardstock and applied some Wendy Vecchi embossing paste over the Pop Pattern Stencil on partial areas. Then I applied some gold embossing powder and heat set it to add some texture/shimmer.

I stamped leaves and berries from the Color Layering Holly stamp set on a piece of white cardstock with following Hero Arts inks: Soft Olive, Moss, and Strawberry. I heat embossed the detail layer of leaves with gold embossing powder and fussy cut the leaves using scissors.

Next, I gold embossed the banner, stamped the sentiment in black, die-cut the banner using the Christmas Banner Stamp & Cut. I finished off the card by mounting the leaves, berries, and sentiment banner on the card front using foam tape.

For the second card, I created a random background by stamping the images from the Santa Snacks Stamp & Cut. Then I colored the images with Copic markers and added some dots between the images with Altenew Artist Markers Set A: Jet Black.

Then I stamped the sentiment from the Jingle All The Way Stamp & Cut with watermark ink on a piece of black cardstock. After heat embossing the sentiment with white embossing powder, I die-cut a tag using Hero Arts Numer It Stamp & Cut and pop it up using foam tape on the card front.

I also created a watercolor card using the Angels stamp set. I stamped the images with Intense Black Ink on Arches watercolor paper and watercolored them with Mijello Mission Gold Watercolor Set. I applied some ink splatters to add some interest to my background. The sentiment from the Angels stamp set was stamped in black.

For my last card, I used my favorite cardmaking formula: one-layer stamped background. After stamping the sentiment at the bottom of the card front, I stamped the images from the Winter Silhouettes stamp set with following Hero Arts Inks: Soft Cantaloupe, Green Hills, Soft Brown, Aegean, and Cotton Candy.

That’s all for today. Make sure to visit the Hero Arts Store to check out their brand new 2017 Winter Catalog Collection.

    I love the partially-stenciled background in your first card. I have a bunch of stencils that I use less often than I should, so I really appreciate seeing new and creative ways to use them.
