{Hero Arts} Hello There + Hero Hostess Blog Hop Next Week!

Hello there and Happy Friday! Today's card features several new stamps and a die from the Hero Arts 2014 Catalog. If you haven't already taken a look at all the beautiful new stamps, dies, inks, daubers and sprays, I have to warn you that you may end up with a mile-long wish list! That's exactly what happened to me but I'm having so much fun creating with the new goodies that it's all worth it. ;) To create this card, I first die cut the Spring Branch from and stamped the Bird on Hero Arts Watercolor Paper. Then I used a water brush and Hero Arts inks to watercolour the images.

I die cut the Ticket and stamped on it with the Five Line Background which was inked with Soft Pool and Soft Stone. After determining the position of the bird and branch on the ticket panel, I stamped a sentiment from Enjoy Today in the open corner. Before adhering the panel on to the card base with foam tape, I sponged the edges and used the Simon Says Stamp Mosaic Heart Stencil with Wendy Vecchi's Metallic Gold embossing paste to add a bit of visual interest to a couple of the corners.

Join me and the Hero Hostesses next week for loads of inspiration featuring products from the 2014 Catalog. Be sure to visit the Hero Arts Blog on Monday morning. You won't want to miss a thing! Oh, and did I mention there will be prizes? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
