2012 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop

Hi everyone!!!  Welcome to the 2012 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop!


This is the most exciting time of the year for me, it's when I can finally share our new images!!!  What could be any better than new rubber?


To start things off, I stamped the Newspaper Eiffel Tower (CG417) with white StazOn on an acetate card. Then I white embossed the Newspaper Flower (CG412) and did some finger painting with my favorite Distress inks (Broken China and Vintage Photo).  I layered Latte and Pool papers on the inside of the acetate card. 
I just LOVE.LOVE.LOVE these stamps!


Did you catch that Hero Arts will be giving away five prize packs that include brand new 2012 Catalog stamps?  The five winners will be randomly chosen from ALL of the blog hop comments received by midnight PST on Monday, December 12, and will be announced on the Hero Arts blog.  So comment along your way on the hop at every stop for a better chance to win.

And now it's my honor to send you on to the wonderfully fabulous and talented
Ms. Ali Edwards!  You know her creation will knock your socks off !!! 

“Remember, if you find a link that doesn't work, you can always hop back to the Hero Arts Blog for a list of direct links to all the blogs in the hop.”

Thanks for stopping by!

Edited to say... "Thanks everyone for your comments!!  The contest has now been closed, but I will keep the comments open."
