2014 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop – Videos + Giveaways!

Today I have yet another reason why this is the most wonderful time of the year…

Yep! It is the time for Hero Arts’ annual BIG release. Tomorrow is the day when stores will start selling the new Hero Arts products. Yay! So we are celebrating with a blog hop showcasing some of our favorite new stamps.

And me? I will be sharing fun projects with new Hero Arts stamps all this week. So this is just the start! And today, I have a couple videos for you…

(Supplies are listed in the thumbnails at the bottom of this post.)

I so wish each and every one of you could see this card in person. The shimmer and dimension makes me do a happy dance…

The new Hero Arts Nicest Thoughts stamp is a great one for many techniques, including coloring and paper piecing, as I did here. You could do the paper piecing with scraps of patterned paper or cardstock… but I chose to use some fun not-so-glittery-but-rather-a-soft-shimmer-that-doesn’t-rub-off glitter paper. I love this stuff.

I have one more card to share using this awesome Hero Arts Nicest Thoughts stamp

I don’t have a video showing the making of this card. However! For the main image on this, I used the paper piecing technique I shared in the video above, but skipped on cutting out each letter for “nicest”…

Now that cool background? That is done by taking the fabulous new Hero Arts Tiny Flags background stamp and stamping it three times in three different inks (Soft Pool, Green Hills and Tide Pool Shadow Inks)… just slightly offset each time. This “triple stamping” is very easy to do! I show how to do “double stamping” in this video I shared a few weeks ago. Just do the same thing but stamp a third time…

Now it is time to keep hopping. I am one happy girl because I get to link to one of my favorite people – Laura Bassen. She is next on the hop, so be sure to head to her blog HERE. (Remember, if you find a link that doesn’t work, you can always hop back to the Hero Arts Blog for a list of direct links to all the blogs in the hop.)

By the way… I have a little hint for you. Be sure to stop back by tomorrow for a special offer on Hero Arts new products. Yay!
