It's Tuesday! It's Time! Hero Arts 2011 Catalog Blog Hop!



I am so happy and honored to share this Hero Arts 2011 Catalog Blog Hop with my fellow hostesses! Hero Arts has produced an incredible assortment of new stamps, from cute to regal - images and sentiments for any occasion. I had a great time playing with the new stamps and hope you enjoy what you see.

Remember, if you find a broken link, just go back to the Hero Arts Blog for the master list and pick up where you left off. Also, please email tami@heroarts.com and provide the blog address that has the bad link so it can be fixed Thanks!

Layered Flowers CL496
Flowers, flowers everywhere! The new catalog has so many opportunities to celebrate the coming of Spring! This card uses the "must have" S5507 Envelope Pattern background stamp and CL496 Layered Flowers.



100_3028
This card design is a lift from the sample video of Jennifer McGuire's Technique Garden DVD. It also uses the S5507 Envelope Pattern background stamp and CL496 Layered Flowers. Same stamps, different look!


Retro Typewriter

I took a break from the flowers just long enough to play with CG280 My Type cling. The backround stamp is CG138 Ledger. This is a salute to all the women who have ever typed for a living!! Now that men are doing it, it's called keyboarding!!


Fabric  Flowers


Layered Flower clear set 496 paired this time with the new cling background stamp Small Stitched Flowers CG242. The surprise here is that the flowers are cut from fabric, reinforced with iron-on Pelon!



Retro Phone


CL502 Just Saying Hi is the perfect set to keep in touch with family and friends. Again, it's paired with the S5507 Envelope Pattern.

That's it from me! Thanks for hopping by! Be sure to leave a comment for a chance to win a prize from the ever-generous Hero Arts Stamp Company! Next stop; Nancy's Happy Heart Studio.
