Hero Arts Winter 2016 Release Blog Hop!




Today is the day!  The new Hero Arts Winter Catalog products are now available in the shop!  We're celebrating with a blog hop!  You should have arrived here from the awesome Kelly Rasmussen's blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Hero Arts blog!

I had so much fun putting my card together.  I managed to use 4 different products from the Winter Catalog, can you spot them?


I was all smiles when I saw the new Coffee Cup Tags and coordinating Frame Cuts.  Yay for a coffee set!!!!!  Let's start from the bottom and work our way up!  I used the Midnight Layering paper for the first 2 layers.  The grey has been stamped with Rings Bold Prints in Charcoal Shadow Ink.  The Banner has been cut from Foliage Mixed Layering Papers and stamped with the new Berry Background.  It has been heat embossed in white.

I inked up the cup in Crimson Hybrid Ink.  All the black ink on my card is Blackboard Shadow Ink, my black of choice lately <-- waterproof for watercolors & markers!  I topped off my card with the Merry Christmas Banner.


My card was inspired by a couple of different challenges:





Hero Arts Giveaway:

Hero Arts will be giving away three $25 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Sunday, August 28 at 11:59pm PT and the winners will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

That's it for me...now it's time to go over to my the wonderful Clare Prezzia's Blog!
