Hero Arts Valentine's Release - with special guest Mariana Grigsby!!



Today is release day for the Hero Arts 2016 Valentines Collection in the Hero Arts store. I love love LOVE these news stamps!!! So many pretty hearts. Looooove. Love. Love them!!

Even though I loooove them, I have been so busy I haven't had a chance to USE them! I mentioned this to my newly appointed Favorite Person in the World - Mariana Grigsby - and she offered to let me share one of HER cards on my blog today. I am so thankful for this, you have no idea. And this has worked out well for YOU - this is no doubt the prettiest card I've ever posted on my blog. Because I didn't make it, Mariana did!! :-)


Mariana featured the Floral Heart Stamp & Cut by Lia on her card. And check out that cute plaid design around the edge! That isn't patterned paper - Mariana stamped that using the Candy Stripe Bold Prints background in Ultra Pink ink. How fun is that?


Mariana put together this cute graphic to show how her card is layered together. Love it!


And here's her full supply list:

Floral Heart Stamp & Cut by Lia
Candy Stripes Bold Prints
Ultra Pink ink for the plaid background and sentiment
Raspberry Jam ink for the panel behind the heart
Others: Glossy Accents, enamel dots, foam tape

Thank you SO MUCH, Mariana, for letting me share your card on my blog.

Be sure to check out this full list of blogs if you haven't already - Hero Arts is giving away a collection of clear stamps and dies from the release to one lucky commenter, picked from comments left on everyone's posts, received by 11:59pm PST on Sunday, December 13th.
