Hero Arts Summer Catalog Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Hi Stampers!
 Happy Tuesday! And welcome to Hero Arts  Summer Catalog Release  blog hop. Hope you are following the blog hop, and if not please go back to the Hero Arts blog to start from the beginning!

Now, you have probably arrived here from Emily Midgett's blog 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 Janette Kausen blog(and you don't want to miss her project, either).

I have few cards today. For my first card I used the new Dahlia stamp and cut. I stamped onto Canson Mi Tientes paper and colored with Chameleon Pencils. Then overstamped again with black ink and embossed with ultra fine embossing powder. I stamped the sentiment onto black paper and embossed with white. I assembled the card and adhered onto black note card.







For this card I used the Artistic Peony and did some no line coloring using Copic markers and Prismacolor pencils. I stamped the background and embossed with Sparkle embossing powder. For the sentiment I used White Embossing powder. I assembled my card onto Kraft note card.


Next I used Blossoms for coloring set and bold prints. For the background I stamped it with Versamark and embossed with white. Next I stamped the flowers and colored with copics. I cut them out very close to the edge. I die cut Hello 3 times and adhered the die cuts together. I stamped "beautiful" on the circle vellum piece and embossed with white. I assembled the card onto black note card. 





Last, but not the least it;s a card using the new Llama stamp and cut. I stamped the images and background onto Bristol paper and colored with Hero Arts liquid watercolors. Cut out the Llamas and assembled the card onto black note card.
