Hero Arts 2021 Catalog Release Blog Hop!



Hello and welcome!! Today I'm hopping with Hero Arts and friends as we launch the fabulous new 2021 Catalog in the Hero Arts store! You should have arrived here from Jessica's blog - if you didn't, hop on over the the Hero Arts blog to start at the very beginning. And be sure to scroll down to the hop info below, there's some pretty great inspiration and fun prizes being shared today!

I'm going to share four cards today which I made for the beautiful printed catalog. My first card features the Gradient Sky & Mountains Stencil as well as a wonderful new sentiment set, Empowerment. I love that there's a Maya Angelou quote!



For this card I simply blended on Reactive Ink through the stencil using our awesome new blending brushes! I love that they have white heads and black handles, and they have the Hero Arts logo!



The next card is another stenciled card, this time with the Butterfly Circle Stencil



I cut out the center with a circle die, added another message from Empowerment, and popped it up.



Next, while I had my Reactive Inks out, I ink-blended a background and spritzed with water. Once completely dry, I black-embossed the gorgeous new American Women woodblock stamp.



The messages in Empowerment go perfectly with this stamped image!



And one more card today - this one featuring another favorite woodblock stamp from this release, Women Belong. It's a quote from Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Hooray for quotes from strong, amazing women in this release! I black-embossed the quote on vellum.



The background is Circular Grid Bold Prints, embossed in silver.



There's so much good stuff in this new release! You can hop along with us and see most of it, woohoo! Be sure to leave comments along the way, the more you comment, the more chances you have to win one of THREE $50 gift certificates to the Hero Arts store! Comment on the hop by Wednesday, February 24th at 11:59pm pst for a chance to win. The next stop on the hop is my good friend Lydia.
