Hero Arts 2017 Summer Catalog Blog Hop


Hello! I'm joining Hero Arts for the release of their 2017 Summer Catalog in the Hero Arts online store! You should have made it here by way of my friend Ilina Crouse. If you didn't, be sure to head over the Hero Arts blog to start at the very beginning!

Today I'm sharing a few of the projects I created for the catalog. I love all of the rainbows, unicorns and other fantastic beasts in this release! There's so much fun stuff!


First the tags - I die cut them using the Infinity Tag dies out of watercolor paper. I used a combination of stamps - two great woodblocks Unicorn and the message Something Magical. I also used the message from the Unicorn Stamp & Cut set. The images were embossed in gold, and then watercolored with my Daniel Smith dot palette. I added some strips of gold glitter paper to the unicorn tag, and also die cut some teeny little hearts with the tiniest heart die from the Heart Infinity dies set. I finished the rainbow tag with some gold shimmer spray splatters.


I also made a full sized card, very similar to the tag - just a watercolored rainbow on watercolor paper, and then the Something Magical message embossed in gold.


I'm the last stop on the blog hop today, but I encourage you to visit all of these fabulous bloggers! Hero Arts will be giving away three $25 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Wednesday, 5/24 at 11:59pm PT and the winner will be announced the following week.
