Hero Arts 2011 Catalog Blog Hop with the Hostesses :)

A huge WELCOME to all of you!!! We at at day three of our week long Hero Arts 2011 Catalog Blog Hop with the Hostesses :)  My blog is the first stop of the day, so if you missed Monday's hop you can click HERE and if you missed Tuesday's hop click HERE...this will take you back to the Hero Arts Blog post for that day and direct you where to start.
I am sure you are LOVIN' all the new Hero Arts stamps as much as I am!!! Are you ready to start the day with some colour?!??!!


For this card I have used the Hero Art stamps: Things CG276 for the sentiment, CG247 Edged Fabric with Flowers for the panel underneath the sentiment, and CL495 Blossom Art for the flower and leaf embellishment. Can you spot a few other stamps in the quilted panel...why yes there is my all time favorite background stamp CG119 Flourish Background and S5129 Scattered Flowers. I also used Hero Arts Layering papers in colour Grass.


Here is a little close-up to show one of the smallest flowers and leaf in the Hero Arts clear set CL495 Blossom Art. I added some dimension with Rangers white enamel accents as per our resident enabler Jennifer McGuire suggests :) 


For this card I used Hero Arts CL490 Sending Smiles for the sentiment and CL494 Blossom Art for the flower embellishment. I stamped the same flower image twice to create added dimension. Can you spot a few other Hero Arts stamps?.....YES there it is again the CG119 Flourish Background it was stamped on Hero Arts Layering paper in colour Cerulean, and if you look close I stamped CG139 Dots on Hero Arts Layering paper in colour Punch.


Here is a little close-up to show the one of the medium sized flowers in the Hero Arts clear set CL495 Blossom Art. I Versamarked the image on a more opaque velum and white embossed it with ZING powder and added more Enamel accents :)


For this final card I used Hero Arts CL495 Blossom Art...can you tell I LOVE this set LOL! and CG276 Things for the sentiment. The flower was layered on Hero Arts Layering paper in colour Daffodil.


A close-up to show the beautiful large flower in the Hero Arts clear set CL495 Blossom Art. The image was Versamark stamped on Velum paper then white embossed. I then coloured in the image with two different purple Copics.....I learned that Copics and velum really don't mix well together :) BUT I like the end result!!!



So here are the Hero Arts sets that were
used on the three cards :) I can see using
these sets over and over and over again!

The sentiment set is called Sending Smiles
CL490.
The larger sentiment set is a cling set called:
Things CG276.
LOVE both of these so much!!!!



These two sets are also a staple in any ones stash :) The clear set is called: Blossom Art CL495. From this set I used three different flowers in three different cards...so versatile!!!

The other cute stamp is a cling called: Edged Fabric with Flowers CG247. LOVE this one!!!



I sure hope you have enjoyed this preview of some of the GORGEOUS new Hero Arts stamps!!
