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!

Great cards. My husband keeps bees, so your bee card is my favorite.
Linda Price says
So pretty. That bee stencil looks so dimensional, with the yellow and greys. I have several of the bee sets from HA, but I may have to add the layering stencil set as well. I also like the rainbow Thank you-interesting the way the rainbow spreads out from the middle.
