Encouragement Cards, Just Because Cards

You Are So Much More Than Meets The Eye | Hero Arts March 2022 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome! It’s release day at Hero Arts and we’re celebrating the artful new March release with a blog hop full of inspiration and a giveaway. If you’ve arrived from visiting Mindy Eggen, you’re right on track!

This month’s kit features Abstract Expressionist art in the form of paint splatters. Stamp them with your favorite inks, or to mimic the bold look of acrylic paint, emboss them with the four vibrant embossing powders included in this kit. Also included is paper with the feel of canvas for creating your masterpieces, and the kit is rounded out with a fantastic cover plate die of the art museum patrons gazing at your work of art. Just imagine all the things you can frame with this die!

My first card features a very quick and easy stamping using the splatter stamps in the set. I first stamped the sentiment in Onyx pigment ink onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock. Next, I mounted both of the splatter stamps in the set onto acrylic blocks and hand-stamped the images around the border of the panel. I used Green Apple, Aegean, and Aquatic inks and then finished by gluing the card front to a card base.

Here’s a card that I shared on Friday using the same kit (read more here):

What Would Life Be…

My next card features the Creative Quotes stamp set.

To start, I swiped Dandelion, Green Apple, and Aquatic ink pads across a 4.25″ x 5.5″ panel of white cardstock, bringing the color in from the edge of the panel, and stopping roughly at the center.

Next, I used a Post-it Note to mask off the bottom third of the panel and then I stamped the dandelion image three times in Onyx pigment ink. I removed the mask and then stamped the sentiment.

To assemble the card, I trimmed the inked panel and then glued it to a layer of Pitch Black cardstock. Then I used foam tape to adhere it to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for visiting! Your next stop is the wonderful Jennifer Kotas! Be sure to read below for giveaway details.


Hero Arts will give away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, March 13th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
