Hero Arts 2014 Catalog Blog Hop




 
Welcome to the Hero Arts Hostess Hop, featuring fabulous stamps from the new 2014 release!  I've had fun playing with some of the new stamps and I'm excited to share what I've done.  If you’ve been following along, you’ve just arrived from the amazing and lovely Barb's blog.

The images in this clear set, Owl Be Missing You,  are easily colored or paper pieced.  I have paper pieced the moose, and added some Copic coloring.

CL755 OWH lil Hoot
This time I colored the bears with Copics.  The squiggly frame is a sticker and I punched out a couple of clouds for interest.  These Operation Write Home stamp sets are perfect for grandparents, too!

CL755 OWH Lil Hoot  S5881 Tiny Flags
Can you tell I love doing "cute"?  I cut the elephant image out and popped it onto a fancy circle diecut, which was then mounted onto a book mark, giving the child who receives this something to keep close.  My favorite part of the card is the Tiny Flags background!  On this card I've stamped it in grey, but I've discovered it is the most versatile background stamp ever; all colors and all styles work with this stamp.

100_5974.jpg
S5881 Tiny Flags  CL750 Butterfly and Flowers  K5897 Petals of Beauty
See what I mean about that Tiny Flag background stamp?  Here I've used it behind the fabulous Petals of Beauty woodblock stamp.  That's just one inkpad, one color on the flower; the stamp provides the shading.

100_5978.jpg
CL750 Butterfly and Flowers

The Butterfly and Flower clear set will be one I reach for often!  It includes the sentiment and most fun of all, the tiny butterfly stamp.  There are other flower and butterfly images as well.  I am loving the squiggly sticker frames; wish I had more of them!

Thanks for hanging around for this long post!!  To thank you, I will have a little prize for one commenter, drawn at random. 

Click on the captions under each photo to take you to shopping information.
