Train Hey, welcome to the Hero Arts Blog Hop, and thanks for visiting me–I do believe I'm the last stop on the line!  *wink*  I'll bet you've had a fun journey!  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! 

It was a pleasure for me to create a few samples for today's hop, that feature some of the new Hero Arts stamps and I hope you like what you see!  Please click on the photo to see an enlarged view:


I decided to make a few cards that color coordinated together, in hues of earthy red, black, white and kraft–this is a color combo that I rarely use and I just LOVE the look!



Supplies:  Speckled Ornaments, Truly Appreciated Clear Stamp Sets by Hero Arts; Colorbox Frost White Pigment Ink; Brilliance Graphite Black Pigment Ink; Black Petite Gingham Paper by A Muse; Oatmeal (Kraft) Card stock by Astro Converters; Black Sheer Polka Dot Ribbon by A Muse; Scallop Border Punch by Fiskars; Felt & Paper Flowers, Button by Making Memories

I wasn't sure how this was going to look when I started–I have quite a few patterns mixed in here, *chuckle*!  But, I do love how modern this turned out–not frilly, but still feminine with a chic, urban aura! 


Supplies:  Poppy Background Rubber Cling Stamp by Hero Arts; "Thank you for everything" by A Muse; Memento Ink in Rhubarb Stalk; Brilliance Graphite Black Ink; Black Glaze Pen by Sakura; Oatmeal (kraft) by Astro Converters; Black Ticking Ribbon by May Arts; Paper Flower  & Button by Making Memories

Who doesn't love poppies?  This gorgeous background image seemed to look quite sophisticated without coloring the image in at all, so I left it alone, except for accenting with the glaze pen.  It's kinda bold, kinda modern, and accented by just a hint of vintage in the ticking striped ribbon.  I likey!  Quite muchly!


Be sure to pull back into the "main station" at the Hero Arts Blog; I hear there's a little more fun and excitement to be had there. *wink*wink*

Warm thanks to Hero Arts, for inviting me to participate, and to all of you for coming by to take a peek at these creations!Happy Holidays!
