Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop


Welcome to the Hero Arts Hostess Hop, featuring fabulous stamps from the new 2015 release!

If you have been hopping along, you’ve just arrived from Sarah's blog! Isn't she talented?

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 Club Blog. The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning! How cool is that?!

I created a couple of cards with the new Baby Animals Stamp and Cut set. I love, love, love the bunny in this set so I decided to make an early Easter card. 



I also needed a celebration type card, so I created this card. How cute are those baby animals combined with patterned balloons? 




My last card is a shaker card with a new background stamp called Triangle background. I embossed the stamp with Hero Arts white embossing powder and then added distress inks.


Here is a more detailed look of the shaker part of the card. :)
