Hero Arts Launch Party Blog Hop

http://wp.me/p6qg4P-d9a

Welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts Launch Party Blog Hop! You should be arriving here from Jennifer's blog. Today we are celebrating the launch of the new Hero Arts website as well as showcasing some of the fabulous products in our 2015 Holiday Collection.

I love to wrap presents and make gifts look extra special during the holidays, but it's such a busy time of year that it doesn't always happen. So this year I'm hoping to make some tags and embellishments ahead of time to have on hand and throw on those last minute gifts that need to head out the door.



These tags feature the new Joy Stamp + Cut which includes the the word "joy" as a die or stamp along with lots of coordinating messages. I used my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers to create a watercolor gradient on each diecut word.

Also, notice that stitched border and tag hole? Those are part of the Peace + Joy clear stamp set. They are great for adding that finishing touch to your homemade tags!

Next up, I couldn't resist assembling a few of these adorable bows using the Ribbon Cutting Set by Lia. These felt bows just might appear on every package I send out this holiday season! ;)


Be sure to leave a comment on this post because Hero Arts will be giving away one GRAND PRIZE $100 Hero Arts shopping spree! The winner will be randomly chosen from all of the blog hop comments received by 11:59pm PST on Tuesday, September 8th. Check the Hero Arts blog for the announcement of the winner.

Your next stop on the hop is the incredibly talented Laura Bassen!
