Welcome everyone. Today the Hero Arts Summer Catalog for 2021 has launched. This catalog is full of card inspiration and new products. During the hop you will so the creative team showing how they created their cards using the new supplies. This is just one of my favorite catalogs to date.
For my first card I’m featuring the Hero Arts Color Layering Strawberries. The strawberries really come to life with this layering stamp set. Super easy to line up to really show the details of the image. I stamped my image on cherry card stock with embossing ink to crate my background panel. For the ink colors I used Hero Arts Pale Tomato, Red Royal, Green Hills and Field Greens. To keep the card simple, I used one of the Hero Arts Heart Infinity dies to stamp my sentiment. The card base is the Hero Arts Dove White Side Folding Card.
Now my next card is truly a clean and simple card. The Hero Arts Message Strips Stamp and Cut XL. Want clean and simple? This is the way to go. If these colors look familiar to you, they should. They are my blog colors. 😉 Using just one of the sentiments, I stamped the Happy Birthday on Hero Arts Cherry, Mustard and Paradise card stock. I heat embossed it with Hero Arts white embossing powder. With the stamp set you get coordinating sentiment dies. I die cut out each birthday message.
To keep the color palette all about just these three colors, I used the same paper to layer a strip of each side by side on a white dove card base. I adhered the happy birthday sentiment stacked one on top of the other for a clean design.
Hero Arts will give away one $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, May 9th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week. Next on the hop is Daniel. I’ve also included the entire list of participants for convenience.
Don’t forget when you place your order, grab the Hero Arts Summer Catalog 2021 as well for inspiration. Have a great day everyone and I’ll see you back here soon!
