Hero Arts 2016 Catalog Blog Hop

 

Welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts 2016 Catalog Blog Hop! Today we are showcasing some of the awesome new products from the 2016 Catalog that are now available in the Hero Arts Online Store.

 

Hero Arts has released a new line of inks called Bold Inks that I couldn't wait to play with! They are a hybrid formulation and like the name says, the colors are very bold. There are 14 colors to the line right now and I managed to use all 14 of them on the three cards below, so you could see them all in action!

There are also several new stencil designs in the catalog and I used three of the new floral designs on my cards to help show off the inks. It's been a while since I've played with stencils and these fabulous designs reminded me how much fun they can be!


Bold Inks: Strawberry, Crimson, Mulled Wine, Orchid, Tangerine, Dandelion
Stencil: Large Flower Stencil

 

Bold Inks: Summer Sky, Aquatic, Deep Ocean, Indigo, Pine, Moss, Green Apple
Stencil: Bold Daisy Stencil


 Bold Inks: Dandelion, Tangerine, Strawberry, Caramel
Stencil: Bold Floral Stencil


And for those small messages on each card I used the new Many Everyday Messages clear set. This is a must have set in my opinion with a message for almost any occasion!

To celebrate this release, Hero Arts is giving away four $25 shopping sprees! Winners will be drawn from comments left on all the blogs in the hop today. Comment by 11:59pm PT on Sunday, February 14 and the winners will be announced on the Hero Arts Blog the following week. So hop along and comment for more chances to win!

Your next stop on the hop is the talented Suzanne Dahlberg!

Thanks for stopping by today!
