Hero Arts Hostess Hop!!!



Hello my Crafty Friends!  I am absolutely delighted to be here as part of the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop!  Today is Day 4 and we are sharing creations featuring new stamps fro the new 2013 Hero Arts Catalog!  I love Hero Arts and being a hostess was the best!  Being a hostess alumni is amazing too, what a supportive, talented and amazing group of women!  You should have arrived here from my fellow Canadian friend Sarah!  If not why not join us and start at the Hero Arts Blog?


It started back on Monday at the Hero Arts Blog. You can always head back there and start from the beginning for each day. You should have arrived here today from the blog of my talented friend, Arlene.
If you find a broken link, you'll find a master list of the hop links at the Hero Arts Blog. Also, please report broken links to: blog@heroarts.com.
Hero Arts will be awarding prizes from randomly drawn comments. For a chance to win, simply comment on ANY of the stops along the hop on ANY day, including each day’s starting post at the Hero Arts Blog. The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning!

I shall start this post off with a love card featuring one my my favorite new clear sets Typewriter Notes!  

 I took the two xoxo's in the set and put the heart in between them and stamped the backgound with Hero Arts Mid Tone Inks Tide Pool, and Bubble Gum Pink and since I didn't have the right light pink I used a American Crafts marker to color in the stamp for the light pink!  Used some fun strips of paper from My Mind's Eye's Lucky in Love!  Stamped and fussy cut the typewriter and added some buttons!

My Next card I used the Typewriter Notes again along with the hot new cling background Hexagon Background!   

 I love this I'm tired of texting sentiment!  LOL  I kept giggling over it while making this card!  I am so not tired of texting just to let you know!  In mind when I  designed this card the strip of sentiments on the side are texts!  I used Hero Arts mid tone inks:  Tide Pool, Orange Soda and Wet Cement!

And my last card today I am sharing another stamp I love, the Tall Flowers Cling Stamp!

 For this card I heat embossed some Chestnut Zing powder onto patterned paper by My Mind's Eye The Sweetest thing collection (bluebell) and paper pieced the flowers!  Really happy how it turned out!  I also used a sentiment from the Many Birthday Messages.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I am the last stop in the hop today!  Please do check out the Hero Arts Blog Tomorrow for the last day of the Hop!

Please leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win this Many Dots Stamp Set by Hero Arts, I will draw a winner on Monday!  You don't have to be a follower but if you wanna be go ahead!
