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.

I love everything about this card. The colors are perfect, the vellum heat embossed flower is lovely and the stenciled background matches the flower beautifully. Thanks

I absolutely love the brass embossing powder on the vellum! I've never tried it because I thought it would wrinkle the vellum. I'm off to my scrap room! Thank you!

What a beautiful card. So simple and elegant. The embossed strip on the side looks so amazing, I thought it was washi tape or card stock. And the stenciled background...perfect! Thanks for the inspiration.

I love the blue and the gold on your card. I'm guessing it was embossed although you could probably use glitter too. It looks like those cards that Hallmark charges an arm and a leg for but you made it yourself. It's beautiful and I love how the background is subtle but it's there, but it's not real in your face. I love all the stamps in the new set. I want them all!
