Hero Art + Reverse Confetti Collaboration Hop

 



Reverse Confetti is collaborating with Hero Arts!  We're super excited to be hopping with them with a super special stamp set:

Hero Arts is celebrating 45 years and counting. To honor our beloved industry, we have teamed up with some of our favorite friends, and have together released co-branded designs focused on friendship, giving, and community.

Born with creativity in her blood, Ellie, daughter of Reverse Confetti owner, Jen del Muro, designed this uplifting and versatile multi-step floral set for the Hero Arts Partner collaboration. Both have a passion for equality and equity, and proceeds from this stamp set will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign. We hope that this stamp set will inspire you to create beautiful cards for those that you care for and love.


We are giving away $50 gift cards to TWO lucky winners, drawn from comments left across the blog hop. One gift code will be to the Hero Arts store, and the other to Reverse Confetti. Comment on the hop by Thursday, February 25th at 11:59pm pst. The more blogs you leave comments on, the more chances to win!

Your should have arrived here from my teamie Jeanne's blog.  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Hero Arts blog.

Here's how I was inspired:


I designed two cards with two completely different color palettes.  The first one I made is the Hello, My Dear Friend:


The Reverse Confetti inks I used:

Peach | Buttercup
Lime Green | Avocado
Iced Aqua

I love how this one turned out.  The sentiment was stamped in Stone.  I wanted the blooms to be the star of the show.


While I was designing my first card, this second design came to me and I couldn't wait to dive into it:


I was inspired by a watermelon color palette:

Piggy Bank | Flamingo

Lime Green | Avocado

Cardstock:  Flamingo | Lime Green

Hero Arts White Embossing Powder

Keeping things real, the center melon isn't perfectly stamped.  I decided that it reminded me of true watermelons, how they aren't always perfect.  It goes along with that beautiful sentiment.

I can't wait to hop around and see how everyone else was inspired!  Next up is my teamie Candice's blog.  In case you get lost along the way, here's the entire listing:
