Hero Arts: Oh What Fun Catalog Release, Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hi everyone!
Today is the day! The new Hero Arts winter catalog products are live on the Hero Arts website and we are celebrating with a hop and giveaway!!! 

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.
Today I have few fun projects to share with you!

My first card features the new Merry Christmas Banner die, I cut it out from gold shimmer card stock and adhered to a background I made using card stock strips in: Peony, Cherry red, Pesto and Palm.



 Next is a card using the From the Vault Winter Joy stamp set and coordinating frame cuts, along with the Merry Christmas Cover plate, that I cut the top off.

Then, a cute little card using the Birch Forest Background stamp combined with the Winter Forest Animals set and the coordinating frame cuts.


And last but not the least, I have a card using the Color Layering Peace stamp set!

Blog Hop Giveaway: Hero is giving away  $50 gift cards to the Hero Arts shop to two lucky winners drawn from all comments left across the hop. Comment by August 31 at 11:59 PST. Winners will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
