Hero Arts Summer Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!



PLEASE note that my Hero Arts Season of Wonder Hop post can be found HERE.


Hello and Welcome to the Hero Arts 2018 Summer Catalog Blog Hop!  The new products have been shipping to retailers for a few weeks now but today is the day that everything is available in the Hero Arts Online Store!  You should have arrived here from the very awesome Hero Arts' blog, that's where all the fun starts!

Be sure to visit each blog on the list and leave a little love - Hero Arts will be giving away two $50 shopping sprees in the Hero Arts online store, randomly drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Sunday, May 20th at 11:59 PM PT.

First I thought I'd share one of my cards that was included in the Summer Catalog:


It features the gorgeous CM264 Color Layering Tiger Lily.  I've teamed it up with the CG709 Tropical Foliage Bold Prints.  I love lilies, how about you?  I went with a traditional color palette:


The sentiment has been heat embossed in white.

Next up, one of my favorite new sets, DC231 Alpaca Stamp & Cut.



Isn't he cute?  He's ready to party, armed with a present + cake!

That's it for me, now pop over to my teamie Clare's blog!  In case you get lost along the way, here's the complete hop listing:
