Hello! Happy Friday! I am so excited to be part of the 2012 Catalog Blog Hop with the Hero Hostesses! (day 5) You should have arrived here from the Hero Arts Blog!

My first card features one of my favorite stamps from the new 2012 catalog:
This card has also been removed for publication!
My next card is a CAS Valentine Card:
Products used: Untitled Heart, Newspaper Background, Year Round Sentiments, red pigment ink ny colorbox, clear embossing powder.
I stamped with red pigment ink the heart and clear embossed it, and stamped the newspaper background over top. Added some rhinestones and a sweet sentiment!
I made another card with the Untitled Heart set, a more romantic one:
Products used: Untitled Heart, Year Round Sentiments, Old Letter Writing, red and raspberry pigment ink by colorbox, angel pink memento ink, antique linen th distress ink, Hero Arts lace.
I stamped the old letter writing in antique linen and than stamped over top the hearts in the various inks, some I second stamped to have a lighter image. I stamped and cut out the heart in red and popped it up with foam squares and stamped the sentiment. I wanted to add lace but when I tried white and cream it blended in so I colored it pink myself. I ran the white lace under my ink pad a few times and spritzed it with water (so that the color runs through!) and let it dry in the sun! And there you go! A romantic card for my hubby!
Before you go I wanted to let you know that I will be giving away this 6 by 6 pad by Basic Grey to anyone who leaves a comment here. You do not need to be a follower of my blog but I would love it if you were! I will leave this open until Sunday January 15th, 2012.
The Basic Grey pads with matching Hero Arts stamps are some of my favorites!
