HA 2016 Catalog Blog Hop


Hello!  I’m so excited to be playing along in the Hero Arts 2016 Catalog Hop!  Everybody’s designs are gonna rock your world!

I have two to share, because I was having so much fun with that cute pineapple die!  EEP!!!


I fell in love with both the Paper Layering Pineapple die and the Neon Ombré ink pads at CHA this year–I’m not even a fan of neon, but when I saw the inks used on the samples, they had me hook, line and sinker!  They just POP!

Here, I used all three of the different Neon Ombré pads to do the same sentiment (from Many Everyday Messages) and I used fluorescent hued Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a waterbrush to watercolor the pineapple die cut itself.


This die has details that pop up, but the shape remains in the paper–essentially, you could make a single layer card that has all this dimension and interest.  LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!



The next design was based on some Pinterest inspiration–I wanted a “mod” effect that was very clean and graphic.


I love that you can style this pineapple die multiple ways–go whimsical, fun and colorful, or keep it clean, graphic and simple! *fist pump*

Hero Arts is giving away FOUR $25 shopping sprees from comments left all across blogs in the hop–be sure to comment at every stop along the way by 11:59 pm PST Sunday, February 14th
