Hi there! I’ve been slowly trying to ease back into doing some stamping for my favorite companies, and today marks the Summer 2020 release for Hero Arts! We are celebrating with a blog hop featuring all kinds of fun inspiration using the new products. I have a super summery project for you using one of the super popular new Heroscapes and a gorgeous new cover plate die, so let’s get started with the details!
I began by die cutting the new Grapevine Window Fancy Die from some watercolor cardstock. I then used Green Apple, Thistle, and Grape Slush Reactive Inks to do some watercoloring, mixing the colors (with the addition of a little Creamsicle) to create the brown for the vines! These inks are great for watercoloring, blending beautifully and layering on top of each other like a dream! I just love watercoloring these super intricate cover plate die cuts from Hero Arts.
I wanted to create a little vignette looking through the grape vines at a hillside vineyard, so I stamped the new Vineyard Heroscape using a variety of inks, adding some bright blue blending for the sky using Aquatic and Neon Blue inks with a blending brush.
I popped up the intricate die cut frame using some foam adhesive, finally adding a greeting from the Vineyard Heroscape. A bit busier than I normally create, but I love how the products work so well together!!
Now, to celebrate this newest catalog release, Hero Arts is giving away one $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, July 5th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week. The more comments you leave, the more chances you have to win!
