Hero Arts: Summer Catalog Release, Blog Hop and Giveaway



Hi everyone!

It's exciting day today! The new Hero Arts Summer release is live and it's AMAZING one. You can see the entire release HERE!

Also we have a GIVEAWAY (Scroll down for more details for that, also for full hop list). 

If you are following the hop you have probably arrived from Emily Midgett's blog and your next stop is Jessica Frost-Ballas. If you just stumbled upon my blog, you can go to the  Hero Arts to start hopping from the beginning. 

I have two cards to share today using the new Looking Glass dies. Those are so much fun to work with! 

For the first card I combined the Looking Glass Day and Night dies with the Clouds and Grass stencil and the Cursive Thank You stamp. 

For my second card I used the Looking Glass Windmill Tulips and combined it with Message Strips stamp & cut XL set (You need this set!!!) 

Giveaway: Hero Arts is giving away THREE $50 gift cards, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, May 30th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

Wonderful looking glass creations. I have the Reef & Lighthouse. I need to practice more with the alignment stencils.

I love the Dutch countryside scene. It reminds me of our trip a couple of years ago. ahhhhhhhh, to travel.....Your coloring makes the scenes so pretty.

These are great! I have to say, my favorite part is that there is a cursive sentiment, as no one under the age of 30 will be able to read it! It makes me laugh. And, yes, I do write in cursive so the younger people have to either wonder, or ask. The die sets are beautiful and your cards show them off wonderfully.
Your cards are so cheerful!

I love both the cards and really adore the simplicity of the first card.. But the colors and the saturation in the second card has my heart. So has the windmills from the Netherlands.. Can't get enough of them.. As they bring back the best memories. Thank you for sharing with us ❤️ ❤️
