Hero Arts 2010 Catalog Blog Hop!

Welcome everyone to a very exciting day!!! It's the Hero Arts Blog Hop featuring over 30 artists showcasing a variety of beautiful 2010 stamps!! I'm so honored to be a part of this day along with so many talented stampers! If you have come directly to my blog and would like to start from the very beginning of the blog hop, please re-direct to the Hero Arts Blog now!

Let's start off with my first project....when I first saw the Girl Holding Flowers Stamp, I was so thrilled and couldn't wait to use it...she is so cute:

Fabulous girl with flowers2

And so perfect for all the little princesses in your life and can be used for almost any occasion throughout the year! I made several variations with this stamp but chose this project below to show you. This is a Letter Block Art project that features the Girl Holding Flowers plus 2 additional new stamp sets:

DREAM letter blocks

Here is a close-up view of the individual stamps:

DREAM letter blocks closeup

I made this for a sweet princess in my family who will be celebrating her birthday soon! This makes for a great decoration for a little girls room. This home decor item may be placed on a mantle, a shelf or desk, or even hung on the wall! So much fun to create and alter these blocks! To view individual details of each block 'letter', you may visit my Flickr Photostream.


Supplies:


CH371 - Essential Messages.
CL383 - Antique Engravings.
H5330 - Girl Holding Flowers.
Papers, ribbons, and flower/heart dies: American Girl.
Prima pearls.
White, plain alpha block letters.
Metal clips.
Hero Arts Felt Flower.
Hero Arts Flower Gem.
Assorted colors of patterned tape.
Assorted colored markers.
Stazon Jet Black Ink.


My next project features the Row of Houses stamp:

Wisteria Lane

I loved playing around with this stamp to create the above scenery. TIP: To create multi-colored homes, ink and stamp the entire wood block with one color. Repeat this step with other colors of your choice. Cut out the individual houses! I found that this works much better than trying to ink directly onto the stamp.


Supplies:


H5328 - Row of Houses.
CL136 - Home.
LP132 - 3 Designer Leaves.
E3658 - Falling Foliage.
S5215 - Clouds.
Hero Arts Flower Gems.
Hero Arts White and Cream Flowers.
Bazzill Cardstock.
Assorted Markers.
Colorbox Ink.
Stazon Jet Black Ink.


My final card here today utilizes the Silhouette Meadow Flowers stamp:

live richly silhouette

I used a Forest Green Embossing Powder to create the background and added very minimal embellishments, keeping this look very simple, with the focal point being on the flowers.


Supplies:

K5340 - Silhouette Meadow Flowers.
CL371 - Essential Messages.
Stampendous Forest green embossing powder.
Tim Holtz embossing ink.
Papertrey Ink white ribbon.
Martha Stewart Floral Border Punch.
Round corner punch.
Bazzill cardstock.


Hope you've enjoyed! Next up on your hop is Nichol Magouirk! Remember, if you find a link that doesn't work, you may always hop back to the Hero Arts Blog for a list of direct links of all the blogs in the hop!
