Welcome! This morning I'm happy to be hopping along with Hero Arts in their Winter 2016 Release Blog Hop! If you're following the hop in order, you have arrived here from Cheiron Brandon's blog, and you will be headed next to Laura Bassen's blog. A complete link list is at the bottom of the post, and additional information on this release will be on the Hero Arts Blog.
I have a couple of cards to share, the first one in a vintage style using stamps from both the Hero Arts Happy Holly Days stamp set and the Vintage Christmas Post stamp set. I colored the cardinal and holly with the following Copic markers:
Reds: R11, R32, R35, R37, R39
Greens: G20, G46
Browns: E33, E57, and
Yellows: Y23, YR24
I hand-trimmed the holly and cardinal because I didn't have access to the die set, BUT I 'm telling you that the dies will definitely save you some fussy-cutting time! ;-)
For my second card, I went a little cleaner in style and used only the Vintage Christmas Post stamp set. I splurged with a little piece of gold cardstock as a mat layer , and I airbrushed just a hint of sky behind my pine boughs. This would be a really simple one to mass produce, switching out cardstock colors and focal images for any of the other stamps in this set.
Now, for the FUN part: Hero Arts is giving away THREE $25 shipping sprees, drawn randomly from comments left across all of the blogs in the blog hop. Comments will eligible for entry until Sunday, August 28, 11:59pm Pacific time, and winners will be announced the following week. From here, you would head next to Laura Bassen's blog.
Thank you for visiting, and good luck!
