Hero Arts Spring 2021 Catalog Release Blog Hop + Giveaway





Hola everyone! Hope you are having a great day! 

Thanks for joining Hero Arts in celebrating the 2021 Spring Catalog with a blog hop and giveaway. If you hopped over from the awesome Mindy you are in the right place. To start the hop from the beginning, visit the Hero Arts blog. The entire blog list can be found at the bottom of this post, along with the giveaway information. 

I am honored and excited the 2021 Spring Catalog includes new products from the Unity Collection: a partnership collaboration with Hero Arts, Dana Joy and myself. This collection "recognizes the beauty of people standing and working together to achieve a better future for everyone." 

 My first card was created using the Unity Collection Color Layering Flower Power and coordinating Frame Cut Sets.

I started by die-cutting two circles using the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies in Pitch Black and Dove White and adhered them to a top folding card base

I then stamped the sentiments onto the card base. Next, I stamped, layered, colored and die-cut the Flower Power image. I used Cup O' Joe, Soft Brown, Lemon Drop and Soft Apricot inks to layer the flowers. 

I die-cut an additional Flower Power frame cut in Pitch Black and used it as a shadow.  I adhered the image onto the panel and completed the card with Aquas Hero Hues Enamel Dots


For my second card, I used the Thank You Message Cover Plate. I started by stamping the newly released Script Bold Prints background stamp with Splash Reactive Ink onto Paradise cardstock. 

Next, I arranged the Paradise cardstock, embossing mat and die-cutting plates onto my die-cutting machine to dry emboss the Thank You Cover Plate

Once done, I spritzed the panel with White Iridescent Shimmer Mist and adhered it to an A2 Dove White top folding card base

Thanks so much for taking a peek! You next stop on the hop is the amazing Seeka!
