Hero Arts 2018 Catalog Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Post 2 of 2 for today…click HERE for the SugarPea Designs Winter Product Release Day Four
Hello and Welcome to the Hero Arts 2018 Catalog Blog Hop!  The new products have been shipping to retailers for a few weeks now but today is the day that everything is available in the Hero Arts Online Store!  You should have arrived here from the very awesome Wanda Guess’ blog!  If not, you’ll want to start at the beginning of the hop which is the Hero Arts Blog!

Be sure to visit each blog on the list and leave a little love – Hero Arts will be giving away three $50 shopping sprees in the Hero Arts online store, randomly drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Thursday, February 22nd at 11:59 PM PT.

First I thought I’d share some of my FAVorites from the new catalog.  There are so many new products!

If you’ve been following for any bit of time, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of the Infinity Dies, check out the newest:

These are super exciting and I expect that they will literally fly off the shelves, Liquid Watercolors:




I have two projects to share today so let’s get started!  My first project features CM217 Safari Huge Thanks.

Do you remember when it was the 2 year anniversary of the My Monthly Hero Kits? The 2 favorites were made
into stamp sets!   There are two safari sets that came from the one 
6 x 8 stamp set in the kit:



My card also features CG729  Floral Mandala Bold Prints +  DI451 Safari Sunset Fancy Die.


My other card features CM235 Mouse Tea Party.


Eep!  This is my favorite set out of the new catalog, it’s ADORABLE.  I teamed it up with the previously released DI339 Party Confetti Fancy Die + DI334 Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies.  This was a big hit at my last Hero Arts Class at Impress in Tukwila, WA.

That’s it for me, next up is the awesome Lydia Fiedler!  Here’s the hop list in case you get lost along the way:

  13. Both are wonderful, but that Mouse is especially cute! Thank you so much for the Hop, the inspiration, and the chance to win!

  14. I'm really loving the new safari stamps and dies. What an amazing card you made with them. I must admit though, I'm really partial to that cute mouse card!

  15. That party confetti die and mouse are so darling! I love your fab safari sunset card with that cool background, too!

  16. Oh goodness, how cute and sweet is that little mouse! You paired the background die and colors perfectly for that little guy

  17. Wow both of these cards are simply wonderful. I love the simplicity of the hippo card and that sun is amazing. Your mouse card is as cute as can be! Thanks for sharing.

  18. Great cards! I had to get the mandala BG stamp and, of course, the inks. I can't wait to get them in my hands. TFS.

  19. Love your cards! That Sun die from the Safari kit is amazing! Loved that kit, but missed it because it sold out so fast. I'm happy to see it back! Such an amazing blog hop! So much talent! Thanks for sharing yours!

  20. *thud* I ADORE your safari card. This was easily my favorite MMH and I am sad to say that I haven't used it all that much. I just love the sunset you achieved and the gorgeous background you added with the mandala. I may have to sign up for MMH kits again as I took a break for awhile. Your partea mouse is just adorable, especially with that background and the green heart.

    I'm with you – I love HA's infinity dies too! So many for a great price! I'm definitely getting the watercolors for my collection.

  25. Lovely cards, the mouse one is so adorable! This is such a great release, thanks for the inspiration.

  26. I love the backgrounds on both these cards. They do a great job giving subtle texture that lets the focal points be the focal points, but still keeps the card interesting. Thank you for sharing and for highlighting the tea set; I hadn't really looked at that one, but it's so cute!

  27. Love both cards, Amy. The safari scene is so pretty, but I must say I adore that little mouse and the background on that card. Thanks for the inspiration.

  28. Wow, what great cards! I'm in love with your safari card–I love all these new stamps especially animal themed ones from Hero Arts!

  29. I love both cards. The Safari card would be my favorite, as you use something other than the elephant in the scene. Great job!
