Hero Arts Handmade for Christmas Blog Hop + Prizes!

Monday, September 29th, 2014

heroarts_holidayhop_500

Hello and welcome to the Handmade for Christmas blog hop! Today our design team has assembled to share loads of inspiration with you for the upcoming holiday season. With October knocking at the door, it’s time to start thinking about those holiday cards and projects!

Sally Traidman is here to kick things off…

Happy Fall everyone! Our Christmas blog hop can’t start without celebrating Halloween first, right? I totally love our new Fright Night pumpkins and Jack-O-Lantern matching die, so I wanted to show you what I made with them, as well as my favorite new Halloween background.

I decided the black words would show up better with a pure white background, so I masked the “word area” on my card before stamping the background in Soft Granite ink. Then I went in and stamped the messages in black. Next the fun stuff! I played around with my pumpkins, stamping the solid pumpkins with various oranges and yellows and then die-cutting. The black faces and solid lines were added, and the stems colored brown with a colored pencil. I mounted them on the card with foam tape.

And what would a blog hop be without prizes? Three, to be exact…!

  • One GRAND PRIZE that includes an assortment of stamps, inks, stencils and dies valued at over $75
  • Two $10 Hero Arts Online Store gift cards

The three prize winners will be randomly selected from all comments received on the participating designers’ blogs (including this one!) The more comments you leave along the hop, the better your chance of winning. Please leave your comments by 11:59pm PST on Thursday, October 2 to be entered to win. Then check the Hero Arts blog on Friday, October 3 for the announcement of the winners. Good luck!!

A2Z Scrapbooking Digital Blog Hop

Monday, August 25th, 2014

hopgraphic

Hello, and a very happy Monday to you. Today we are excited to be hosting a blog hop with A2Z Scrapbooking, our new digital retailers. Currently, A2Z Scrapbooking offer a selection of our digital goodies, but in the coming weeks, they will be adding to their collection and stocking our entire range. To celebrate our new collaboration, a number of artists from A2Z and Hero Arts have teamed up to provide you with a whole host of inspiration and fun. Just hop along and see how our digital products can be used.

And to add to the excitement, A2Z Scrapbooking will be giving away a $50 gift certificate to one lucky commenter. The prize winner will be randomly selected from ALL comments received on the participating designers’ blogs. The more comments you leave along the hop, the better your odds of winning, so be sure to comment on every blog, starting with this one! You have until Sunday August 31st at 11.59EST to leave your comments and the winner will be announced on the 3rd September on the A2Z Scrapbooking blog.

To start things off, Lucy has created a card with the new Bottle Brush digikit. Here’s what she has to say: One of the great things about Hero Arts digital kits is that the stamps in the kit can be used as cut files too. This is a great way to get more from your supplies. To make my card, I took a star stamp from the Bottle Brush kit, opened it in Silhouette software, traced it and then cut it from gold glitter paper.

To complete the card, I added a punched glittery heart, some gold thread and a digital sentiment also from the Bottle Brush kit.

So now it’s time to get hopping. Here is the full line up just in case you get lost along the way.
