Birthday Cards, Just Because Cards, Thank You Cards

Thank You For Helping Me Grow | Hero Arts Spring 2023 Catalog Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome! The 2023 Hero Arts Spring Catalog collection is officially live on the Hero Arts website! We’re celebrating this fabulous new release with a blog hop and giveaway and if you’ve arrived from Pocono Pam’s blog, you’re right on track. And, be sure to check out the new Creative Essentials Catalog collection, as well!

I have a number of cards to share today so I’ll jump right in!

My first card features the beautiful new Butterfly Hot Foil Plate. I used blending brushes to blend Dandelion, Tangerine, and Pale Tomato Core Inks onto a piece of white cardstock. Then I hot foiled the butterfly over the ink blending and used the butterfly outline die, from the Delicate Butterfly Fancy Dies to cut out the image. I used foam tape to adhere the image over a background I made with Mist Core Ink and the Fluttering Butterflies Bold Prints stamp. I finished with a stamped sentiment from the Monarch & Milkweed stamp set.

My second card features the new Poppy Fields Bold Prints stamp. For this card, I did some ombre stamping onto a piece of watercolor paper with Lemon Drop, Creamsicle, and Fruit Punch Reactive Inks. I selectively inked up the stamp with the colors using blending brushes and then when I finished, I simply added a sentiment heat embossed onto black cardstock.

This card features the new Floral Imprints stamp set. I love how clean and bold these images are against some simple color blocks!

This fourth card features the Wonderful Day stamp and die bundle as well as the coordinating color layering stencils set against a Burlap Bold Print background.

And, my final card features the Leaf and Floral stencil with sentiments from Yay Birthday bundle.

Thank you so much for visiting! Your next stop is the wonderful Carissa Wiley!

  2. Dear Seeka – These are gorgeous. I love the butterfly at the beginning and the “Hooray” card w/ the damask stencil design behind it best, but all five are LOVELY.

  4. Your second and third cards here are my favorite, especially the third. It’s simple, colorful, and fun. I rarely think to do a similar design and I really should make note to give it a shot.
