Hero Arts 2016 Catalog Blog Hop

Hero Arts is celebrating the launch of its fantastic 2016 Catalog.  I made a few cards as part of the hop.  You can find the products here.

For the first card, I embossed the gorgeous Antique Rose Stem on vellum cardstock, and tied some white twine to the panel and then adhered it to a striped gray card. 

Made the stripes by applying a Hero Arts White Dauber to the gray card.  That white dauber is fantastic!

And then I made another, because, well pink!

Since I had the stamp out, went on to stamp the Antique Rose with 3 colors of Ranger Distress Stains onto watercolor paper.

The Hero Arts 2016 Catalog is now available in the Hero Arts Store (it's been available at retailers for a few weeks).  Lots of fantastic items in there, particularly if you love flowers!

To celebrate, Hero Arts is having a blog hop and prizes and is giving away four $25 shopping sprees.  The winners will be drawn from comments left across all the blogs in the hop (linked below).  Comment on this post by 11:59pm, Sunday February 14th, and Hero Arts will announce the winners on the Hero Arts blog the following week.  Hop along and comment for more chances to win!

Honored to be among this list of fantastic stampers. To see all their awesome creations, check out the following:
