There's definitely lots to love in the new 2012 Hero Arts catalog! I had so much fun playing with one of the new clear sets CL576 Wish Big:
To make the clouds I just stamped the cupcake from this set twice on some white cardstock and then die cut the clouds from the "frosting" portion of the stamped images. I thought the "cartoonish" quality of the die cut little girl was a perfect fit with the newsprint images in this set!
Other Materials Used: Papertrey ink cloud die, Cuttlebug swiss dot embossing folder, mft fresh cut grass die, Cricut Winter Frolic cart (little girl die cut), Crate Paper pp, My Mind's Eye pp, Stampin' Up cs and ink, Ranger stickles, googly eyes.
Next up is a CAS valentine:
The balloon bouquet and the newsprint heart images are part of the Wish Big set while the sentiment is from an older Hero Arts clear set CL280 Elephants.
Other Materials Used: Papertrey ink cs, Ranger barn door distress ink, Stampin' Up ink, Martha Stewart baker's twine, Cuttlebug swiss dots embosssing folder, Cricut Kate's ABC's cartridge (letter die cuts)
And last but not least, another birthday card (lots of family birthdays in February!):
I split the sentiment from the Wish Big set (gotta love clear stamps!) and used some older Hero Arts stamps: CG211 Magical Background, CL439 Kiss From the Sun, S5507 Envelope Pattern and F5279 Dancing Mouse.
Other Materials Used: Cuttlebug swiss dots embossing folder, Papertrey ink cloud die, Stampin' Up cs and ink, My Mind's Eye pp, Copic markers, googly eyes.
Next up on the hop is the super duper talented Lin Brandyberry! Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to comment to get a chance to win some of these awesome new stamps!
