Welcome to the Hero Arts 2016 Planner Release Blog Hop! We’re celebrating the launch of the 2016 Planner Catalog! It’s full of fun designs by both Hero Arts and the fabulous Kelly Purkey! So much great stuff to make planning fun – and to use on other cards and projects, too! The products have been shipping to retailers for a couple weeks now, so you may have seen them out and about. But our hop marks the launch in the Hero Arts online store!
Hero Art will be giving away three $25 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Wednesday, October 19 at 11:59pm PT and Hero Arts will announce the winner the following week.
I have a couple of projects to share for today! I thought I’d show you how easy it is to use planner stamps for other projects, today I’m featuring two cards:
My first card uses an Midnight Mixed Layering Paper panel for the base.
The Hero Arts Kelly’s Designer Paper makes it so easy. I trimmed the panel down to 2 7/8 x 4 inches and used my corner chomper. To make it easier to stamp the sentiment and have a bit of contrast, I also cut/trimmed a strip for the sentiment (the other side of the pattern panel) which is from the Fun Day Planner set. I stamped the Friends with Intense black and then followed up with the banner and fussy cut them out. I love the contrast of the green and gray, how about you?
I happened to have a coordinating embossing folder in my stash so I teamed that up with another panel from the Midnight Mixed Layering Paper. I did the same thing as my previous card and worked with Hero Arts Kelly’s Designer Paper and stamped a sentiment from the Fun Day Planner set.
I’m really looking forward to hopping and seeing everybody’s projects. Here’s a listing of the hoppers in case you get lost along the way:
