Hero Arts Valentine's Collection Release Blog Hop


Today I'm hopping with Hero Arts as they launch their 2017 Valentine's Collection on the Hero Arts website. The new collection consists of ten fun new products - stamps, dies and even a stencil! All of the products are linked at the bottom of this post if you'd like to check them out!

I made my card today with the adorable woodblock set called Love Tattoos.


I stamped the little heart tattoo image repeatedly on watercolor paper with VersaMark ink, then embossed in black. Then I quickly watercolored around the images. The message is a new woodblock stamp called Smitten, I think it's so cute!


And now it's time to hop! Be sure to visit all of the blogs below - Hero Arts will be giving away two $25 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Thursday, December 15 at 11:59pm PT and the winner will be announced the following week on the Hero Arts blog.
