Hero Arts + BasicGrey Grand Bazaar Blog Hop


Welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts + BasicGrey Grand Bazaar Blog Hop! I'm excited to be here today to show you some of the awesome new stamps, stencils, papers and embellishments in this new collection!

On my first card I created a little grouping of items using stamps from the You Make Me Smile clear stamp set, the mixed brads and chipboard stickers. How adorable is that fox flair?!?!



For my next card I used the Tiny Triangle Pattern Stencil to create the background. I pulled out some coordinating Hero Arts inks and used a sponge dauber to ink over the stencil. I found that Hero Arts Navy, Orange Soda, Ultra Pink and Tide Pool are perfect matches for this collection!

The sentiment is from the the same clear stamp set I used on the card above -- such great messages for cards!



To celebrate this release, Hero Arts and BasicGrey will be giving away two Grand Bazaar prize packs -- including paper, embellishments, clear and cling stamps, and stencils! The two winners will be randomly selected from all comments received on the participating designers' blogs. Comments must be received by 11:59pm PST on Wednesday, June 11. The more comments you leave, the better your odds of winning!


Also, there is a great sale going on over at Hero Arts! All stamps and stencils from the Hero Arts - BasicGrey Grand Bazaar collection are 10% off June 6-13 in the Hero Arts Online Store.

There are also some great deals on BasicGrey 6x6 paper pads here.




Your next stop on the hop is Melissa Phillips!
