Hero Arts | Season of Wonder Release Blog Hop



Although the Hero Arts Winter release has been available at your favorite retailer, today marks the day that it is available in the Hero Arts Store!  They're celebrating with a blog hop and I'm thrilled to hop along with them!

You should have arrived here from Clare Prezzia's blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the fun, which is the Hero Arts Blog!

Be sure to leave a little love along the way - They're giving away two $50 shopping sprees to the Hero Arts online store, randomly drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Sunday, August 26th at 11:59 PM PT and they will announce the winners the following week.

I have three projects to share so let's get started, shall we?!  My first card is one of two that are published in the Season of Wonder 2018 catalog:


It features the LP460 Angel Trio.  It's been teamed up with the CM192 Offbeat Holiday Messages and the DI487 Bird and Banner Fancy Die.  Do you spy the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies and the Star Confetti Fancy Die?  To add pops of color, I used the PD114 Liquid Watercolor - Indigo.

Next I have a project that features the CM281 Christmas Mice:


She's been stamped with Intense Black and colored with various alcohol markers.  I used the frame from the DI527 Deer and Ornament Fancy Die.  Do you spy the DI531 Woodgrain Texture Fancy Die, that's a must have!

My final project was something I had been thinking of since the August My Monthly Hero optional add-ons became available:


I masked off the mountains from the CM289 Ski Holiday set so they could fit in one of the cups from the new  Cups and Handles Infinity Dies.  Do you see the CG749 Floral Doily Bold Prints has been clear embossed on the cup?  The track for the ski gondola has been heat embossed in copper.

Your next stop is the awesome Amy Kolling!  In case you get lost along the way, here's the complete hop listing:
