Hero Arts Color Layering Blog Hop!

Hello and Welcome to the Hero Arts Color Layering Blog Hop!  You should have arrived here from the Fabulous Yana’s blog!  If not, you’ll want to start at the Hero Arts blog so that you don’t miss out on any of the fun!

Hero Arts will be giving away a Color Layering Bundle of the winners choice to FIVE lucky blog readers – selected from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Comments close Sunday June 19 at 11:59pm pt, Hero Arts will announce the winners the following week.

Color Layering uses the technique of stamping progressively, building color and detail, resulting in an elegant, dimensional look.  The Hero Arts Design team was asked to recommend their favorite colors to best highlight each Color Layering Stamp set.  The results have been developed into 4-cube ink packs, featuring the artist’s name!  While the inks were developed with a specific stamp set in mind, the packs offer wonderful and rich versatility; you’ll find they work well with most any set and often produce stunning and unexpected results!

Hero Arts also introduced a fabulous new Color Layering stamp set with this release – the Color Layering Pineapple and coordinating Color Layering Pineapple Frame Cuts. There’s also an ink cube pack for this set, Hero’s Pineapple.  The Color Layering Pineapple Bundle contains the stamps, frame cuts and ink cube pack! 

Check out the other Color Layering Bundles…combined new ink packs with their Color Layering stamp set (and dies in some cases)!

Did you see the Color Layering Catalog:
This was such a fun project.  I used the Color Layering Large Orchid set.  If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know how much I LOVE the color green!  I’m super excited about the Amy’s Shades of Green ink set!

Oh my, look at all of the Ink Packs:

I’m the end of the blog hop!  I hope that you enjoyed it!!!  In case you got lost along the way, here is the entire hop listing:

  9. What a beautiful card! I once received an orchid just that colour as a corsage, too. I forget what I was wearing but it went beautifully with it and now all I remember is the orchid!

  10. Love the design of your gorgeous card, Amy! It reminds me of these green orchids we have that just bloomed a couple weeks ago. Orchids are just so interesting to look at.

  19. As always, you've created a card with "life"! Soooo pretty! I'm swooning all over these layering bundles! Oh, to win a lottery *grin*

  20. Wow! Love these orchids!! The color layering makes such gorgeous flowers. Can't wait to get my hands on as many of these color layering stamp sets as I can.

  21. I love how easy all of these color layering stamps are. I especially love that HA has now come out with sets of colors for layering. It takes all the guess work out. Love your color combo and your card, Amy!

  23. Amy, such a gorgeous card! I'm totally crushing on all these layering sets, they are awesome. I love that you used your signature green lol. Thanks for sharing and inspiring.

  24. Very Detailed Orchids with calming colors that highlight the brighter details, but don't make the card overpowering. Beautiful and elegant layout that lends itself to the addition of a multitude of sentiments for different occasions (as well as seasons) with a few added embellishments.

  25. OK now, this is really pretty. The crimson on pale green is quite striking, and I like the overall simplicity.

  26. Those colors remind me of an orchid my mother has in her yard in the Caribbean. Love it!

  27. I love the orchid and the colors aren't limited to just one set. One could go really wild or subdued.

  28. Gorgeous!!! Love the orchid and oh that color collection….YUM! I'm a green girl too โ™ฅ

  32. So fabulous to have the hard work taken out of choosing the colours – you lovely experts have done it for us! Your orchids look fantastic!

  33. WoW!!! This is just beautiful! The colors are unexpected, but probably a better choice than what I would lean to. Lovely. Thanks so much.

  34. Your card design is awesome. I love the colors you used and the orchid just seemed to stand out as if you could pick the blossoms odd the stem. Having lived in Hawaii for years, your card really hits home for me. Thank you.

  35. Love this, the stamp works well with these colours but I think I will be putting extra colours in my basket for creating other orchid colours too!

  36. I love the color choices here. They do work so well together. You gals are putting together colors I would never have thought of but will be using in the future. So so pretty card!

  41. I like this orchid's look. You've done a good job on this color layering set. I like the fonts used on the two sentiments. Glad I've learned about color layering through this hop.

  42. Oh my, look at all those wonderful ink packs! Love the way you stamped your orchids, Amy!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  43. Beautiful card Amy. Love the gorgeous orchid. Thanks for the color chart… fantastic color combo.

  44. Just stunning, Amy! Love the pop of red…

    I'm laughing over here (at myself) because I commented earlier over on HA's blog about my favorite set and it was Amy's Shades of Green and I didn't put two and two together until I got to your blog… d'oh!!! I should have known that was your handpicked selection (and a very fine one at that!) by the greens. ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. Oh, what beautiful orchids you can make! Love the idea of getting the stamp inks with the stamps!

  46. Love your card and the colors are stunning !!! This release and all these wonderful color combos make it very hard to choose just 'one' !

  47. Great color choices! I never would have come up with that combination on my own. ๐Ÿ™‚

  48. your swatch samples are great! I never swatch my colors- that would be too organized for me. BUt I always think hmm one day I should.


  50. So much to LOVE about your BEAUTIFUL card, Amy! It's super wonderful! Loving your ink selections too!

  51. I loved the hop and my legs are so tired and sore from all that hopping but it was so much fun! I got to see so many pretty and creative card and that also includes your orchids. Our Super Stop and Shop has a bunch of orchids in their floral dept. and I just want to take them all home because they are so beautiful. I love the color of yours! I hope I get to win because I could do so much with all those colors. I'd love to have them all but I can't afford them all.

  52. Great card. I'm loving the color cube sets to go with each set and that you can get the stamps, dies and inks all together. Thanks.

  53. What a beautiful card. I like your color combo. It is wonderful to see what others do because they often use great color combinations that I would never think of!

  54. Lovely card, I wouldn't have thought green flowers could work, but it really does.
