Hero Arts 2018 Valentine's Day Catalog Release - Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY


Hi stampers! 
Welcome to the Hero Arts Valentine's collection blog hop! 
If at any point you get bored, just hop onto the next blog :D (I will have the same list on the bottom of this post) which is Michelle and I check her amazing creations!

Ilina Crouse - that's ME

I have few projects for you today, so please bear with me. 
For my first project I am using the Mini Calendar kit, which actually is not really part of the Valentine's collection, but with the New Year coming pretty soon, we all need 2018 calendar and on. I LOVE this kit! The kit includes:
  • 6x8 clear set of months, days, dates, icons and other calendar essentials
  • 12 sheets of 4x6 heavy white card stock
  • 1 cube Intense Black hybrid ink
  • 1 calendar stand
So, for my calendar I used paper and set that came in the kit. I stamped the border , days and year with versamark and embossed with gold embossing powder. Next I stamped the dates using Intenese black ink, made the banners, stamped on the calendar pages and put them together. 






For my next card I used Loving Swans wood mount set and at the end I used the Floral Border with die frame cuts. I blended the background using bubble gum, orchid and grape juice ink pads.Added little splatters using the Pink Metallic Mist. Colored the swans using my Chameleon Pens and Pencils, cut them out and assembled the card.




My next card features the new set called Cherrubs. I decided to make a shaker card and used the new mist to add shimmer and color to the background inside. The cherubs were stamped using the pink to red ombre ink then die cut. 



And then we have the Otter stamp and cut set. I love these cute otters. I decided to cut them out and form shape of a heart and adhered to vellum heart. My background was stenciled using 3 colors of ink (tide pool, antiqua and navy) to get ombre effect. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. Added some sequins to add more interest. 





Giveaway
Hero Arts will  be giving away three $25 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please ask hoppers to comment by Thursday, December 21st at 11:59pm PT and we'll announce the winner the following week.
