Seasons Givings Blog Hop

by Hero Arts December 31, 2018 759 Comments

Hello and Happy New Year! Today we are honored to join a huge annual blog hop, a concept started by Latisha Yoast to say "THANK YOU!" to our wonderful blog readers and share some extra goodies. Be sure to scroll down to the end of this post for the giveaway info, as well as the list of companies and bloggers participating. Every single blog along this hop is sharing a giveaway! You won't want to miss it!

But first, Ilina is here to share a little New Year's cheer with you! Take it away, Ilina!

Hi everyone, Happy New 2019!!! This is Ilina and in the spirit of the new year I am sharing an elegant (black and gold) New Year's day card featuring the Party Confetti Fancy Die along with the Wishes Stamp & Cut set.

To make the card I started with die cutting the Party Confetti Fancy Die from shimmery black card stock and set it aside. Next I die cut the Wishes sentiment from the Stamp & Cut set. I did this twice from gold card stock and adhered the die cuts together. 

Next on piece of vellum I stamped "Sending New Year's" with Versamark and embossed with Gold embossing powder. Using the Circle Infinity Dies I die cut a circle. Adhered the "Wishes" die cut to the vellum circle and let it dry.

In the meantime I adhered the black die cut to a gold top folding note card. Adhered the vellum circle, trimmed the side a little and added few Champagne sequins to finish the card off.

For our giveaway, we're offering all of the products Ilina used on today's card! That's a prize package valued at $86 retail! To enter, let us know your goal for the coming year. You have until Friday, January 4 at 11:59pm PST to enter, and we'll announce the winner the following week.

And now for the hop list - it's a long one, but full of fabulous giveaways! Have fun hopping along!

My goal is to make 20 cards a week this year. So far, in this first week, I have made 8 birthday cards, 5 Christmas cards for next year, and 4 other cards, leaving 3 to make tomorrow, when I have the whole day free. I have also made 8 backgrounds to be used later. I know that I have to pace myself so I don’t burn out, so I intersperse my crafting with other activities.

I make cards for all the people in the continuing care retirement community where I live, friends and family members, children of friends, and others—altogether around 500 people. I hope to give each person at least a birthday card and a Christmas card this year. I am a Deacon in my church and I consider it my ministry. I started it because so many people in our nursing unit never received any mail at all.

My crafty goal for 2019 is just to make more cards. There are some days that I am not in the mood. After all the crafty stuff I have I should spend more time crafting.

My major goal is to get accepted into a Dental Hygiene Program.

My goal for 2019 is get better with my health issues so I can better my craft abilities so I can post the different techniques and introduce them to my Puerto Rican community in Spanish and everyone else that wants to join me for my advantage is that I can translate in English any doubts since I am completely bilingual for being raised in New York City, then lived in my home land for 35 years and since I have been really badly sick I have been between Texas and PR for the past 3 years.

God Bless you all and happy crafting. Thank you all for your tutorials that help us all.

My goals for 2019… The biggest thing is I want to find MORE TIME for crafting and creating art. I also want to improve on my copic coloring skills as well as my colored pencil skills. I would love to take some classes on these things. I also vow to get my craft room organized! That will definitely help me have more time for creating because I will spend much less time searching for things! 😊 And I must say…your card is stunning! I just love all the gold and the vellum really makes your sentiment pop!

After breaking my hip two days after Thanksgiving, I realized how important it is to have your cards done early as you don’t know what’s around the corner. In other words, don’t procrastinate in doing anything. You never know when your world can be upside down. I didn’t even get a card made for my husband and best friend, which broke my heart. As far as things to help my crafting, I just can’t seem to get that bar magnet ordered. Sure would like to try one, for sure.

My goal is to actually spend for the things I need, without going nuts of course. I have stamps, but need more ink and paper. I have some copics, but not some that blend well with each other. I plan to pick a project and purchase everything I need for it, I feel like it will help me become more excited about creating.

Wow! What a wonderful card! I especially love the “Wishes” die cut. So pretty. My goals this year include trying to be healthier as I’ve had a really hard 2018 when it comes to health. I also want to get going on a bunch of baby quilts I want to make and have a cleaner and more welcoming craft room so that when I get the bug to create, the room is waiting there for me and I don’t have to clean it up every time I want to craft.

One of my goals for 2019 is to let myself be creative and not try and make everything perfect. I need to embrace the imperfections because they can be beautiful too. I feel like I’ve grown more creative over the past year, but I want to do more. I am enjoying stamping and making cards for family, now I want to expand that even further. I really like the kits you have because they make me think about how to use things differently. And it’s always so much fun to see what others create.
