Hero Arts 2015 Spring Catalog Blog Hop


Welcome to the Hero Arts Hostess Blog hop where there is beautiful inspiration from my fellow Hero Hostesses using the new Hero Arts Spring 2015 release.If you’ve been following along, you’ve just arrived from Emily's fantastic blog

Hero Arts will be awarding prizes from randomly drawn comments. For a chance to win, simply comment on ANY of the stops along the hop on ANY day, including each day’s starting post at the Hero Club Blog. The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning!

I was lucky enough to play with a few different sets and created a few different projects to share. I started with the new Stamp land Cut Butterfly 
I mixed one of my favorite Hero Arts stamp the Dandelion Seed along with the new Stamp and Cut Butterfly.  I also mixed in a touch of the succulents from the Stamp your Own Succulent.

I had so much fun with that butterfly that I decided to create a small set of cards and framed the butterfly with the new Engraved Frame stamp.

I mixed in a few different sentiments into my mini cards.
I used the Hello sentiment from the Dauber Bunch Set on my next card.
My butterflies were stamped on pattern paper and colored with copics to give a different effect for each one.
Now it is time to hop along to the next stop on the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop which you are in for a big treat because it is the extremely talented Tiffany Ervin
