I have been so excited for today to hop with my Hero Arts friends and celebrate their new summer release that is now available for all to see in the Hero Arts online store! I think it’s STELLAR that you dropped by to see me! I have several cards to share with you… it’s been super busy around here, but I could not stop stamping!
This is such a fun hop to celebrate the new catalog! Lots of great talent and somewhere along the hop, there are three $25 shopping sprees to be given away! Cool? Just leave a comment below and tell me about your favorite new Hero Arts project that you’ve seen (here on my blog or from one of my hopping friends!) Comments will close on Sunday, May 15th at 11:59pm PT and we’ll announce a winner the following week!
My first card above showcases a new Hero Arts stamp and die set called Hipster at Heart! I was sorting boxes from storage (from our move last year…sigh) over the weekend, and I found oodles of CDs and cassette tapes that needed to go… what to do? keep? toss? My husband also has throwback vinyl that he refuses to let go of… never mind that we’ve no way to play said vinyl… or cassette tape. STELLAR!
I paired the album, notes, arrow and stellar sentiment from Hipster at Heart with some bright Orange Fizz, Sno Cone and Ripe Raspberry MFT inks and a scrap of patterned paper. Super fun!
My second card also features Hipster at Heart – Memento London Fog and Cantalope inks with a bit of washi tape and twine. Fun and easy!
Next up, a card that I love … This is a close up so that you can see the stamped detail and the airbrushed die cut love. I cut the die cut from white cardstock and then airbrushed with Copic Markers for a fading pink accent.
The stamps and die cut are from a small set called Love Stamp & Cut. Love the versatility.
Here’s my full card anchored with a bit of Lawn Fawn plaid paper and a few heart sequins … love.
Finally, I was so super excited to see the new destination series stamps! We have some beautiful cities in this country, and this one celebrates a favorite Destination: NEW YORK CITY! This skyline is so cute, easy to color – and even though I’ve cropped it here to make room in my polaroid frame for the Chrysler building, this stamp contains the new Freedom Tower on the left side of the skyline! My husband and I were in New York this same week of May in 2013 when they placed the spire at the top. It was awesome to see!
I colored NYC with Copic Markers and slipped the cityscape under neath the polaroid cut frame, and then I added a camera and sentiment from Hipster at Heart! So fun!
Thank you so much for stopping by to visit me today! I’ve had a ton of fun! I know there are lots of paper pretties for you to see, and don’t forget the shopping sprees! There will be three winners from somewhere along the hop – just comment before midnight on Sunday, May 15th to be eligible!
