Hero Hostess Blog Hop!

Hello there!  I am absolutely delighted to be taking part in the 2014 Catalog Blog Hop with the Hero Arts Hostesses!  I will never forget my delight in 2011 about this time of year when I got that email asking me to be a hostess!  I cried with joy!  Hero Arts stamps have always been and always will be my favorite.  The company is run amazingly by amazing and talented people, and the stamps are such high quality and great images!

You should have arrived here from the super talented Emily's blog or if you would like to start at the beginning please visit the Hero Arts Blog!  

Hero Arts will be  giving away three big prize packs containing an assortment of brand new products from the 2014 catalogue.  For a chance to win, simply comment on ANY of the stops along the hop on ANY day, including each day’s starting post at the Hero Club Blog. The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning!
Today I will be sharing two cards with you!  They both use the set Lil Hoot OWH
I love this set!  The images are so cute and the sentiments are unique and perfect! This set has been quite popular by us Hostesses because it's such a great set! 

For this card I also used the Hero Arts set New Ideas.  I stamped the numbered note pad with Hero Arts Tide Pool ink and adhered it on an angle.  I stamped the bears with black staz on and using inks and water and a small paint brush I painted them.  I used some patterned paper by My Minds Eye's Cupids Arrow #14.  I thought that the hearts were fitting as you can see the love between the bears!  I can't wait to slide this card into one of my sweet kids lunch!  I finished the card with enamel dots as I love them! 

I love felt since I work with it for my wreaths and I decided to stamp the elephants on some wool grey felt!  Don't the elephants look so cute?  I stamped them twice once on white felt and fussy cut the husk and nails! It was easy I used staz on black ink and just held the stamp there longer so the ink could "seep" into the material and slowly pulled it away.  I added googly eyes as it made them so much cuter!  For this card I also used the Hero Arts background stamp Tiny Flag Background.  I stamped it with Hero Arts Mint Julep.  Added a strip of patterned paper by My Minds eye and some enamel dots!
Well that's it for me!  I hope I've left you inspired and wanting to also get some new Hero Arts stamps! :>  The next stop along the hop is the wonderful Nancy!
