Hi there! Today, Hero Arts is officially releasing their Spring 2020 Catalog, and it’s chock full of beautiful images and fantastic new dies! (And can I just say how excited I am for the super classy new black Hero Arts MISTIs that are going to be released very soon?! Be sure to sign up for notifications for when they come in stock!) We’re having a big blog hop (with prizes) to celebrate. You should have arrived here from Caly Person, and your next stop is Janette Kausen. I have two projects to share with you today, so let’s get started with the details!
For my first project, I used the brand new Hero Florals Tulips and Oval Woodgrain Frames Infinity Dies to create an ultra-springy project. I began by stamping the Hero Florals Tulips flowers and butterfly using Intens-ified Black ink on some Copic-friendly white cardstock, then colored the images using some colorful pink and yellow Copic markers. I die cut the images with the coordinating Tulips Dies.
Next, I die cut the Oval Woodgrain Frames Infinity Dies from some more white cardstock. I blended a bit of Bubble Gum ink in the center of a white A2 panel using blending brushes. I then adhered the white frame in the center and arranged the tulips, adhering all of the die cuts using foam adhesive. Finally, I added a greeting from Hero Florals Tulips on a strip of white cardstock, flagging the ends.
For my second project, I used the new Bookcase Peek-A-Boo stamp set to create this colorful pink card, complete with kitty and bibliophile mouse! I began by stamping the main bookcase image, kitty, and little mouse using Intens-ified Black ink on some Copic-friendly white cardstock. I then used my Copic markers to color the books using various shades of pink and fuchsia.
Next, I die cut a little black frame using the new Square Infinity Dies and added it to the card front using foam adhesive. I stamped the greeting from Bookcase Peek-A-Boo and added it and the cute little animals using foam adhesive. I just adore the amount of detail that is included in this stamp set!
Well, that’s all for my projects today. Now for some fun giveaway information:
