Hero Arts 2015 Spring Catalog Hostess Hop



I love all the wonderful new Hero Arts Spring products and I'm so happy to join my wonderfully talented Hero Hostess sisters for another Hostess Hop! If you haven't already, you'll want to start at the Hero Arts blog so you don't miss any of today's inspiring projects! If you've been following along, you've just arrived from Kathy's blog.

Here are the brand new Hero Arts goodies I was lucky to play with:



I'm sure I'll need this card for one of my grandsons; they are always making me proud!

I had so much fun coloring this cute little pup!

This card uses emboss-resist with watercolor on the Triangle Background.

Okay, this guy is just too cute!

I colored and cut out an extra snout so I could pop it up with foam adhesive.

A quick card using the older Butterfly set along with the Congrats die. I left the inside blank so I can add the appropriate sentiment from the Congrats Stamp and Die set when I use it!
Since I'm not a sequins girl (I know, crazy huh?) I had fun stamping the cute little sequins from the set and adding some Silver Wink of Stella  to give them some sparkle!

And finally a fun little set of tags with those adorable Playful Animals paper-pieced with cute polka-dot patterned paper. I used up some ribbon scraps too!
(Lawn Fawn Freshly Cut Grass Line Dance 12x12 paper and Let's Polka, Mon Amie 6x6 paper).

Thanks for the visit, I'd love for you to leave a comment.

Your next stop on the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop is Linda’s blog. Enjoy!

blessings,
nancy
