Good afternoon! The spring catalog release from Hero Arts is now available and today we’re hopping to celebrate!! I’m sharing a few cards using my favorite products from the new catalog release! You can find all of the new release products HERE!
First up is the beautiful Petal Burst stencil! I ink-blended the stencil using a rainbow of reactive inks and spritzed it with iridescent shimmer spray for a soft sparkly finish!
I added a bold sentiment from Happy Thanks Stamp & Cut XL with black glitter paper and heat-embossing to finish this cheery card! I wish you could see the sparkle and shine in person!
My second card was a little more labor intensive but worth it! I started by using yellows and greys with the Color Layering Bee Florals stencils. Once I was done stenciling I die-cut the design with the Bee Florals Window Fancy die.
Next I die-cut the same Bee Florals Fancy Window die from Pitch Black cardstock and used an exacto knife to cut away the design leaving only the black outline. I matted it onto soft yellow blended background and then puzzle-pieced in my stenciled design. I love the bold black background! I finished the card with a sentiment from Friendly Messages!
My last card features the gorgeous new heroscape: Wisteria which is one of my all-time favorite flowers! I stamped the wisteria several times with layering Hero hues inks and then die-cut them with the coordinating dies. I ink-blended a slimline card panel with the same inks (but with a much softer hand) and layered the wisteria pieces to create a slimline design.
Finally I stamped the cute layering hummingbirds, sentiment, and petals onto my card panel to finish the card! And that’s it! I’ll have more to share soon but I hope this has given you some inspiration using the new release!
