Hello crafty friends! I am so pleased to be hopping along for the Hero Arts Summer 2018 Catalogue product release!

Isn't the new Peony (CM259) stamp set gorgeous! I had such fun coloring this with my polychromos pencils! I realize peonies are not usually turquoise lol but I loved the color mix! I didn't want to add too much to the Kraft panel so I used the Happy Stamp and Cut with Neena Solar White and added a little Peacock Feathers Distress Ink for a little ombré effect. Then finished this card with the Hero Arts Ocean Sequins.


I really loved the polychromos on Kraft so I did the same for the Blossoms from Coloring Bold Prints (CG735) 6 x 6 Background Stamp. I silver embossed the stamp on kraft paper and chose a few flowers to color and decided on three to create my visual triangle. I rarely use purple so I decided to live on the edge, lol! I love the way it turned out. I decided on the Wonderful Stamp and Cut for the sentiment.


This one also features the Blossoms for Coloring Bold Prints but I used white embossing powder and a mix of Distress Inks for my rainbow! I again, wanted simple for the sentiment because the rainbow is the feature so I chose the Hello Stamp and Cut and black card stock. I added some Nuvo Crystal drops and some Hero Arts Gems to finish off the card.


For my last project, I used the Peony once again with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers for some quick coloring and then embossed the sentiments found in the set on black card stock.

You next stop on the hop is the super talented Lisa Stein! Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win one of two $50.00 gift cards! Enjoy the hop!
