The Hero Arts 2019 Catalog Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Hello! I am hopping along with Hero Arts today, to introduce all of the wonderful goodies that were introduced in the new 2019 Hero Arts Catalog - and now available in the Hero Arts store!

Today's post is all about butterflies! I wanted to share some of the fabulous new butterflies in this release, specifically the Nesting Butterflies Infinity Dies. This is a set of six butterfly dies in various sizes, plus some antennae dies, too. There are so many things you can do with this die set!


For this first card, I used the tiniest butterfly in the set, and cut it out repeatedly using the GORGEOUS new cardstock in both Papaya and Pumpkin. (Can I just pause for a moment and tell you just how INCREDIBLY EXCITED I AM about this new cardstock??? It's my favorite new thing in this release by far! If you've used the Hero Layering Paper in the past, you know what a huge change this is!) Attaching all of the butterflies to this card with foam tape was a labor of love. It's all on a panel of Dove White, which was in turn mounted on more Pumpkin then Pitch Black. The message is from a fabulous new little 3x4 message set - Hero Greetings Sending Smiles.


This next card again uses the Nesting Butterflies Infinity Dies.


This time I used a little larger butterfly from the die set, and layered the butterflies together. The gorgeous blue cardstock is called Paradise, and I layered a vellum butterfly on top using just a small line of the fabulous new Precision Glue along only the center. The line of glue was hidden with gems. And that spectacular background? That's a new background stamp called Ocean Waves Bold Prints. I embossed it with Sparkle embossing powder on Sand cardstock for a subtle background.


The message on the card above was from the gorgeous new Color Layering Monarch Butterfly set, which I believe you've seen on other cards in this hop. There's also the New Day Butterflies stamp set in this release, as well as a Monarch Butterfly Fancy Die.

And now, let's get hopping! I was the last stop on today's hop, but be sure to go back and visit all of the blogs! We're giving away FOUR (!!) $50 gift certificates to the Hero Arts store - you don't want to miss your chance to win! Comments close on Sunday February 17th at midnight PST, so get to hopping!
