A Blog Named Hero Birthday Blog Hop!

Happy Second Birthday to A Blog Named Hero!!!


I'm so honored to be a part of this celebration! Hero Arts is of course very near and dear to my heart, and I am excited to show you a card I did to say Happy Birthday to a Blog Named Hero! This card may look complicated, but it's really super easy!


I decided to have a party on a card by using bright colors of Distress ink and some of my treasured Hero Arts stamps from the Stamp Your Story collection. The technique is easy, just ink the stamps with your favorite colors of Distress ink, mist and stamp on to watercolor paper. When you're done and things are dry, stamp with circles using black ink.


To finish things off… add the party favors of sequins and sprinkles!

And now I'll direct you on to the amazing Lisa Stein!

If you get lost along the way on the hop, you can always head back to 

 Be sure to leave comments along your way on the hop to better your chance to win some goodies from either of our sponsors (Hero Arts or Simon Says Stamp).

Thanks for coming by!
