Hero Arts 2016 Catalog Reveal!!


Hi everyone! It's time for another exciting release at Hero Arts! The new 2016 catalog is faaabuuuulousssss! :-) I'm hopping with the Creative Team today, giving you a look at some of the goodies. Be sure to head over to the Hero Arts blog if you haven't already, you'll find more about the catalog there - including an online view of all the catalog goodness! You will begin finding the new 2016 Catalog products at your favorite store soon! And all products will be available in the Hero Arts store beginning February 8.

For today's post I'm sharing something I created for the catalog, using DC182 Butterfly Pair Stamp & Cut!


This die set is another "paper layering" type of set - it only partially cuts the butterflies out, so you can bend up the wings and make them look like they are flying off your card! I just love them.


I just did a quick wash of watered down ink in the background, stamped my butterflies in black, and die cut. It's a very easy card with a really striking effect!


I am the final stop on today's blog hop, but if you happened to start here at my lil' ol' blog, be sure to go back and visit everyone else...

To me there is nothing prettier than to see a card with a partial die cut done and see the image flying off the page. Watercolor has become such a popular thing in 2015, and it makes for a quick card, you did a great job with the watercoloring. Thank you for sharing such a pretty card.
