Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop
Welcome everyone to the Hero Arts Hostess Alumni Blog Hop! I'm so excited you're joining us for this two day event. You should be arriving for Emily's blog.
The Hosti's have gotten together to feature projects using products from the new 2016 release and winter catalog.
My first card uses the Happy Holly Days Stamp and Die Set. I love all the greenery in this set, perfect for so many different styles of cards.
I heat embossed all my stamped images with Hero Arts Brass Embossing Powder. It's my first time trying it and is now a favourite. I'll be using it on a lot of my holiday cards this year. After embossing and die cutting I coloured in my pieces with Zig Markers.
For the red piece I stamped the Holiday Florals Bold Prints Stamp with red ink on red card stock and used a Sakura glitter pen to add red dots on the background. Then it was just a matter of assembling the card and adding a sentiment.
On my second card I used the Color Layering Cardinal as my focal image. Half the fun is experimenting with different colour combos for the bird. The colours on my bird are Ranger Pink Gumball, Ranger Classic Cherry and Memento Love Letter.
I die cut a circle from white card stock and white heat embossed the Woodgrain Bold Prints image on it. I also heat embossed branches from the Happy Holly Days set with green glitter embossing powder and used them to frame the bird.
For the strip of green I used Versamark to ink the edge of the cardstock, sprinkled it with the same green glitter embossing powder and heat set. I finished off the card by adding my sentiment.
