Hero Arts Summer 2021 Catalog Release Blog Hop + Giveaway




Hola everyone! Hope you are having a great day! 

Thanks for joining Hero Arts in celebrating the 2021 Summer Catalog with a blog hop and giveaway. If you hopped over from the talented 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 adore the Hero Lifestyle Collection and was excited to see a new addition. The 2021 Spring Catalog introduces Hero Lifestyle RBG, a nod to the amazing late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. The robe included in the set inspired me to create a children's choir. 

I die-cut the robes in Mustard cardstock. Next I created several diamonds using two Nested Diamond Infinity dies which I cut in half to create v-neck stoles. 

Using the Hero Lifestyles Forms set, I die-cut human figures in Antique Ivory, Pebble and Chestnut cardstock.  

I die-cut hair, shoes and glasses for the choir members in Pitch Black cardstock using both the Hero Lifestyle Forms and Picnic sets. 


I assembled the choir members and set them aside. 

Next, I swiped Berry Smoothie, Fruit Punch and Lemon Drop reactive Inks next to each onto a glass mat and spritzed with water. I laid Dove White cardstock into the ink and pressed for a few moments. I removed the cardstock and let dry. This technique created a beautiful "watercolor" design! I then cut the panel to 3 1/2" X 8 1/2" and matted it with Pitch Black cardstock.

I placed the matted card panel onto a  4" X 9"slimline Dove White card base and assembled the choir in two rows. I popped the front row with foam squares. 


To finish the card, I stamped "Rise Up" from the Hero Arts Unity Collection Power To the People clear stamp set onto Dove White cardstock. I trimmed, matted and placed it into the hands of two choir members.


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

Giveaway

We will give away THREE $50 gift cards, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, May 30th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

  57. I'm not much for paper dolls but you outdid yourself with yours. I'm rethinking that they just might have a place in card making. I love the bright yellow robes and how you got the v-necks on them. I also liked the diversity shown. Your sentiment is spot on.

  58. Wow.. This is outstanding, a whole lot of choir group. Reminds me of my school days and the all the yellow is definitely representing the sunshine in all of us despite of our diversity. ❤️
