AUGUST KIT IS HERE!

Summer Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

by Hero Arts May 15, 2018 170 Comments

Today's the day! A few weeks ago we revealed our 2018 Summer Catalog, and the products have been available at our favorite retailers. Today we're launching the collection right here on our website, and we have a fun and inspiring blop hop with giveaways to celebrate!

The hop today features our Creative Team along with some of our good stamping friends and the entire team from A Blog Named Hero! But before we get to the rest of the hop, Creative Team member Jessica Frost-Ballas has an adorable card to share with us.

Good morning!  Jess here with a foxy card to share with you!  I just adore the new Fennec the Fox set and couldn't wait to color him up for a card!

Isn't he sweet? He kinda looks like my dog with those pointy ears! Anyway, I started by stamping the sleeping fox and cactus from Fennec the Fox onto Snow Layering Paper with Versafine and heat-embossed them with Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder. Then I colored them with Copic markers and used the coordinating dies to die-cut them. While I was at it, I stamped the sentiment onto Midnight Mixed Layering Paper  with Versamark and heat-embossed it with White Detail Embossing Powder.

Next I used my MISTI to stamp the Bandanna Bold Prints onto a piece of Snow Layering Paper using the Ombre Light to Dark Peach ink pad. Then I adhered an A2 piece of Decorative Woodgrain Vellum to an A2 piece of Snow Layering Paper and die-cut a window using the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies. I adhered the cactus behind the window and the fox in front. Then I adhered the woodgrain panel over the ombre background. I adhered that to a Snow Folded Card and finished the card with a sprinkling of the Champagne Sequin Mix! And that's it! I have a few more cards to share on my own blog for the hop...I hope you'll stop by! :) 

And now it's time to hop! Be sure to visit each blog on the list and leave a little love - we will be giving away two $50 shopping sprees to the Hero Arts online store, randomly drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Sunday, May 20th at 11:59 PM PT and we will announce the winners the following week.

I love this little fox set too. I previously ordered the catalogue for our office desk and after marking out my wish list decided he is one I have to order.

Oh my, he is so sweet. I have lots and lots off deer in my back yard, but very seldom do I see a fawn by himself, and I never see cactus. This stamp is just precious.

I love the fresh feeling of the card. Who wouldn’t want to win a shopping spree with Hero Arts? I still have HA stamps dated in 1995. I love that they used to be dated so I know how long I’ve been stamping with HA. :)
