Hero Arts Summer 2016 Release Blog Hop

Hello! Today we are celebrating because the products from the Summer 2016 release are now available in the Hero Arts Online Store! And what better way to celebrate than with a blog hop featuring lots of talented stampers and new products!

My card features a couple of products that you may have seen before. The Prayers Stamp & Cut was previously released at Simon Says Stamp, but now it will also be available in the Hero Arts store. Yay!


I also used the Happy Mother's Day clear stamp set, which features some beautiful floral images and great messages for mom. I heat embossed the flower onto vellum with Brass Embossing Powder, which is such a stunning color! And to bring in even more of that gorgeous brass color, I heat embossed a strip of cardstock to add along the left side.
 

The subtle textured background was created with the Floral Pattern Stencil and white embossing paste. I thought the petals of the stencil perfectly mimicked the petals of the embossed flower.

Now how about a giveaway! Hero Arts will be giving away three $25 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Sunday, May 15 at 11:59pm PT and the winner will be announced the following week.
