hero arts 2013 catalog blog hop!

Oh my, oh my I can't believe I am taking part in the Hero Arts 2013 catalog blog hop! Someone pinch me LOL. Hero Arts products are totally fabulous, the people are the best and I am so honoured to be taking part todayHopefully as part of the hop you've arrived here from Sally Allnock's blog if not pop by Hero Arts to start at the beginning so you don't miss anything.

For my first hop card (there's two!) I just had to break out the new Hero Arts Tweed Pattern (S5654); I just love Hero Arts background stamps and this guy is no exception! I've finally finished my Christmas cards (yey) and so I wanted to really hit some fun, bright colours with this background. I got out a bunch of Distress Inks and patted them onto my craft sheet before squirting with a solution of perfect pearls then I squooshed my stamp into the sparkly ink and stamped onto white card.





I seriously love how this came out! Bright, fun and if I show you a angled picture you can see where the perfect pearls really shines.


The sentiment is from a really cute set; Hero Arts Fantastic Birthday (CL677). I coloured the stamp with Distress Markers and stamped onto a die cut panel which I popped up with foam adhesive. A little bit of twine and a few die cut hearts and stars to finish :)

For my next card I wanted to use the Hero Arts Fantastic Birthday (CL677) set again.  Along with the sentiment I used above and a couple more to boot there are also a bunch of the cutest images. I pulled out this little cake for a sweet birthday card :)




I stamped the cake with Memento ink and coloured with Copics before adding glossy accents to the topping, waiting for that to dry (patience test) and then added some Stickles sparkle to the sprinkles. Here's a closer look - I hope you can see the sparkle and shine.


Aren't those different fonts just so great together!

Now here's the fun part for you - leave a comment here (and for more chances to win on the other blog hop participants too) and Hero Arts will be giving away several prize packs, with winners randomly chosen from ALL of the blog hop comments received by midnight PST on Monday, December 17.

I am really enjoying this Hero Arts Blog hop! There are so many wonderful inspiring creations with the stamps. I am drooling over some of them...I am thinking I need to get some of the background stamps, especially the tweed and hexagonal ones!
