2014 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop

HA2014CatalogBlogHopBanner_600I’m so very excited to be joining Hero Arts today as they kick off their new 2014 catalog with a blog hop! You should have arrived here from the one and only, I’m lucky to call her my friend, Jennifer McGuire. My first card uses probably my most favorite stamp in the history of ever…the Tiny Flags background stamp. I love it with a passion. The adorable little bears are from the Lil’ Hoot stamp set.
Hero Arts-new 2014 Catalog stampsMy next two cards use the Nicest Thoughts stamp. I stamped it in memento and then colored part of it with Copics and then embossed the banner in white.

I also used a sentiment on the butterfly tag from the new Enjoy today set. I embossed the flower and butterfly in white and then used some watercolors to color them in.
