Hero Arts 2016 Planner Release Blog Hop!


Hello hello!! Today I'm hopping with some amazing artists as Hero Arts launches the 2016 Planner collection in their online store! You should have arrived here from Kari's blog - if you didn't, consider starting at the beginning over at the Hero Arts blog!

I'm sharing a card I had created when we put together the catalog, using the super fun Pop-Up Icon Dies! While I definitely do adore all of the fun planner products in this release, I love that there are plenty of things for us cardmakers to have fun with, too!


These dies cut out half of the icon - in my case, a heart. I used a ruler to lightly pencil in a guide for lining up my hearts before I began die-cutting. It took a bit of pre-planning, but it wasn't difficult at all. I folded back half of the die cut, and put silver glitter paper as a layer underneath, so it would peek through. I love that Hero Arts Layering Paper is white on one side, it really looks great with these layering dies!


The set also includes a star, an arrow, a geotag, an asterisk, and an X and an O, which would be super fun for a Valentines or wedding card! (I really need to try that asap!)

Now it's time to hop! Be sure to visit all of these amazing ladies if you haven't already, and comment along the way. Hero Arts is giving away three $25 shopping sprees, drawn from all of the comments left along the hop. Be sure to get your commenting done by next Wednesday, October 19 at 11:59pm.

I am loving the color and the fun, but I love my white space on my calendar--it makes me feel like I can breathe! I am so glad that I got to see other ways to use these stamps.
