Hero Arts Winter 2016 Catalog Blog Hop



Welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts 2016 Winter Catalog Blog Hop! Today we are celebrating the arrival of all these fabulous new products in the Hero Arts Online Store.

I'm using three new products on my card today -- the Grateful Leaves stamp set, the Ombré Autumn Ink Pad and the Tag Infinity Dies.


First, I die cut the tag from some Sizzix Leather Paper and stamped the leaves using the Autumn Ombré ink. These ink colors are perfect for fall leaves and the texture from the paper really makes the leaves realistic!

I added a white heat embossed sentiment to the tag, which is also from the Grateful Leaves stamp set. And for the subtle tone-on-tone background I stamped some of the leaf images with VersaMark ink on a kraft card base.


I finished off the card with a scattering of Hero Arts Mixed Accents, which coordinate perfectly with the colors of the leaves. I just love the mix of gems and pearls together!

Hero Arts will be giving away three $25 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Sunday, August 28 at 11:59pm PT and they will announce the winner the following week.
