2014 Hero Arts Hostess Hop and a Give-A-Way


Welcome to the Hero Arts Hostess Hop, featuring fabulous new stamps from the 2014 catalog! I am your last stop on the hop for today.  If you've been following along, you've just arrived from Kryssi's blog! If you have come to my blog on your own and would like to start from the very beginning of the hop, please re-direct to the Hero Arts blog.

Hero Arts will be awarding prizes from randomly drawn comments.  For a chance to win, simply comment on any of the stops along the hop on any day, including each days starting post at the Hero Arts blog. In addition to all the fun, I will also be having a Give-A-Way of my own (see below), so don't forget to comment for your chance to win here too!

For my first card, I used the floral stamp from this set called Things We love.  The sentiment comes from this set called Family Vacation.


For my 2nd card, I used some of Hero Arts' fun daubers (pastel green, lime green, ultra pink, pastel blue and lemon yellow) to apply the color to the flowers - also from Things we Love, and the leaves are from this gorgeous stencil set called Night Flower!


And my final card uses the woodblock stamp Poppy! I mixed water with some orange and pink inks together and painted them onto the poppy for a watercolor look.


Here are some items for my Give-a-way - (6) Steel dies, (4) inks, (1) pack of assorted pp and (1) stamp set. And I may throw in a few surprises.  ;) One commenter will win all of these items (U.S. and International shipping).


Be sure to tune in tomorrow at the Hero Arts Blog as we kick off another day of hopping with 5 more, very talented Hostess designers!

Tiffany: Beautiful cards! Although hard to decide on a favorite, I am totally biased toward the card with the poppy stamp. The details are gorgeous: the coral color (beautiful mix of paint), watercolor effect, the contrast with the black sentiment, and, last but not lest, the butterfly. Haven't yet experimented with the daubers. Cheers!
