Hero Arts catalog release , blog hop and give away!

Hi Stampers!
 Happy Thursday! And welcome to Hero Arts  Catalog Release  blog hop. Hope you are following the blog hop, and if you are already tired and probably overwhelmed from all the beautiful creations so far, but don't worry you are almost to the end. There are only few more stops after me, but trust me you don't want to miss them.




Now, you have probably arrived here from Lisa Stain's blot and if you haven't trust me you don't want to miss her amazing projects. So go back to her blog or start from the beginning(the Hero Arts blog) and if you arrived here from her blog, then you are on the right track and your next stop will be Amy Kolling blog(and you don't want to miss her project, either).




Giveaway
Hero ARts giving away three $50 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Thursday, February 22nd at 11:59pm PT and the winner will be announced the week after that.
Now lets take a look of few cards I made using the new catalog goodies.

First off is the Color Layering Elephant (I used only the outline stamp) and the Flowering Nasturtium wood block stamps. I did some reverse masking and colored with the new liquid watercolors. 
Watch the video below, how this card came to be! 





Then there is the Color Layering caterpillar set, along with Weird and Wonderful. i had so much fun playing with different colors for the caterpillar. 





Then, one of my favorite sets the Color Layering Swan. I did some ink blending on the background using Bubble gum, Orchid and Grape Juice inks, and black and Navy for the water. 



Then, there is the Color Layering Swallowtail. I love butterflies, so I had to showcase couple cards using this set today .Again, I played with different color combinations for the butterflies 




Another set I LOVEd playing with is the Color Layering Nasturtium. I again played with different color combinations and few different Stamp& Cut sets





Last but not the least is the . House Stamp and Cut. I used Chameleon Pens to color the image and Wallpaper background stamp for the background.





Thank you so much for stopping by and hop you are inspired to create something today
