Hero Arts 45th Anniversary Blog Hop and Giveaways!

Hi everyone!
Today is the day! The new Hero Arts catalog products are live on the Hero Arts website and we are celebrating is with a 3 day hop and a LOT of prizes to celebrate Hero Arts 45th Anniversary.
If you are following the hop, you have probably arrived from Emily Midgett's blog and your next stop will be the fabulous Janette Kausen.

All supplies are listed on the bottom of this post.

Today I have 2 cards for you using couple from the vault sets. In my first one I used the Celestial set. I did the background using few of the blue liquid watercolors, let it dry and stamped the image and sentiment using the new Embossing and watermark ink then embossed in white. Stamped the thin sentiment on vellum and embossed in white. Trimmed to size and assembled my card.



For my second card I used the Dancing Frog stamp. I stamped it three times, colored and cut. I inked the background using the new Berry Smoothie reactive ink, sprayed with water. Let it dry. In mean time I stamped the sentiment from Cute Animals set onto Pitch black card stock with Watermark and Embossing ink and embossed in white, then assembled my card.
