Hero Arts: You brighten up my day



Have you seen the new Hero Arts Fun in the Rain set?  It's an Add-on set from the February My Monthly Hero.  It sold out pretty early but looks like it has been restocked!


Oh yes, Hero Arts now has Ombre' Sequins!  Funny, my finished card isn't anything like how I envisioned it.  It wasn't even going to be a shaker card but spied the sequins on my desk and things quickly changed up.  

The Hero Arts Coffee Cup Tag Frame Cuts are so fun to use without the stamps.  I stamped and colored that sweet bear first and then cut the cup out.  Do you see the subtle raindrops that have been stamped in Soft Pool?  

Originally I was just going to adhere the cup to a white base but didn't like the white on white so as I was digging through stuff, I came across some American Crafts bags.  I remembered I use to make shakers with them.  I use my bone folder to lift up all the seals so that I can run it thorough the Cuttlebug.


Can you believe that we're nearing the end of February?!

  6. That bear and cup are so sweet, Amy!! I can see the subtle rain he's sloshing through, too. What a fun shaker card; everyone love them, and I think it was so clever of you to use one of those AC bags. The kraft really sets off those pretty sequins, and the white cup. Love this one. Have a good week. Bev
