Hero Arts: Winter Catalog Release, Blog Hop and Giveaway

 Hi everyone!

Today's the day! The new winter Hero Arts release is in the shop. And it's all about fall and winter holidays and it's so much fun!!! And we are celebrating with a blog hop and a giveaway.
If you are following the hop, then you have probably arrived from Emily Midgett 's blog and your next stop is Jessica Frost-Ballas 

I have couple cards to share with you today! 
For my first card I used the new Gift Peek-A-Boo infinity parts along with the Square Peek-a-Boo infinity dies. 
To make the card I stamped the gift image using Intens-ified black ink. Next I colored with alcohol markers and die cut using the coordinating size square peek a boo die.
Stamped sentiment on Pitch Black card stock and embossed in white. I cut same size piece of Dove White card stock and positioning where the opening is and stamped sentiment and another image. Assembled the both layers and adhered to black note card.


For my second card I used the Snowflake Medallion Fancy die and Fawn and Friends stamp set and dies.
To make the card die cut two pieces of white card stock (same size - 4" x 5 1/4") On the bottom one ink blend Pinks and Peach inks and splash with some white ink and white iridiscent spray. Let it dry. 
On the top one die cut the Snowflake medallion (without the frame). Adhere both layers together.
Stamp fawn, color and die cut. Stamp sentiment and adhere the fawn. Assemble your card.





GIVEAWAY: Hero Arts will give away three $50 gift cards, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by leaving a comment between now and Sunday, September 6th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

Love both of them, but the gift card is adorable - you could "re-make" that into a birthday card, congrats, just because you are a gift - - I think I may have to borrow that design from you :)
