Hello and welcome to the Hero Arts 2017 Wintertime Fun Catalog Blog Hop!  The new products have been shipping to retailers for a few weeks but they’re now available in the Hero Arts store.  We’re celebrating the new release with a Blog Hop!

Hero Arts will be giving away THREE $25 Shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop!  Please leave a comment by Wednesday, August 30th at 11:59 pm pacific for a chance to win.  Hero Arts will announce the winner the following week on the Hero Arts blog.

You should have arrived here from my wonderful teamie, Jessica Frost-Ballas’ blog!  If not, you’ll want to start at the Hero Arts blog so you don’t miss any of the fun!

I have two projects to share with you today so let’s get started, shall we?!

Have you seen the new Wintertime Fun catalog?!  It’s gorgeous and I believe the best one yet (although I say that about all the Hero Arts catalogs!).  HERE’S the link to it.

My first card features the new Santa Snacks Stamp & Cut:
My main color palette is pink + green which makes me a happy crafter!  Gotta love that sweet mug of hot chocolate!  The images have been stamped with Intense Black and colored with copics.  Do you spy the smidge of Tide Pool Shadow Ink?

My next card features the new Color Layering Holly stamps and coordinating frame cuts.

The inks I used on the holly leaves:


I used the frame cuts and red felt from my stash for the holly berries!  The Nesting Postage Stamp Infinity die makes for a fun backdrop, don’t you agree?

That’s it for me!  Next up is my awesome teamie, Michelle Short!

In case you get lost along the way, here’s the hop listing:

  13. Poor little gingerbread man he looks so sweet but sad. Thanks for your inspiration on both these cards -beautiful

  14. Smidge of Tide Pool Shadow Ink was First thing I noticed, next was the partially eaten (sad looking) gingerbread man, lastly, thought the holly berries were made with Red Velvet! Great CAS cards!

  15. Your cards are adorable. I love the Gingerbread man card, so funny! The Holly card is lovely, nice job on both!

  16. Gingerbread cookies have such a dear and important part of our Christmas traditions, it especially reminds me of my wonderful grandmother who is no longer with us, but memories of her live on until we're blessed to see both grandparents again in God's timing. I loved that your first card brought back a wonderful gingerbread memory for me, but it was a Halloween memory of a special treat-bag she made for us grandchildren with some candy but also some of her special gingerbread snaps, how I loved and still love them!

    Best wishes,
