Hero Arts 2017 Spring Catalog Blog Hop!




Hello!!  The Hero Arts Spring Catalog products are now in the Hero Arts online store!  We are celebrating with a hop!  You should have arrived here from the wonderful Wanda Guess' blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning which is the Hero Arts blog!

Hero Arts will be giving away three $25 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Tuesday, February 21st at 11:59pm PT and Hero Arts will announce the winners the following week.

I was so excited to design some projects for today's hop, my theme is Parisian!


I'm featuring  CM145 Ooh La La:




First up is my Bonjour card:



I combined the Ooh La La stamps + coordinating Frame Cuts with the Nesting Circle Dies.  I kept everything clean + simple but simply had to make those sunglasses have green frames💚

Next up is my Oui, Oui mon cheri card:


I stamped the French Treats out on a watercolor panel with Chalkboard Dye Ink.  I colored the images with Zig Clean Color Markers.  Do you see a bit of the Blush Mixed Layering Panel and gold glitter cardstock?

Speaking of French Treats, I took a macaron class a couple weeks ago and this last weekend my girl and I whipped up a batch:


We learned a lot and have some ideas...so be on the look out.  For our first batch, we love the added sprinkles!  They are Hazelnut with Coffee Buttercream.

That's it for me...up next is my fab teamie, Clare Prezzia!

In case you get lost along the way, here's the full hop listing:

I am in love with all of these new layering stamps! If I could I would buy them all! It’s so hard to choose a favorite, they are all fantastic! I would say it’s between the peacock and the poppy. But the coy and water Lilly are great too.
