Hi! Happy Monday! It's an exciting day here on the blog! I am so happy to have been invited to participate in the big blog hop today - celebrating the new 2016 Hero Arts Catalog! There are so many fun new items in this catalog. I saw most of it at CHA and love it all, already! Really happy to be able to get my hands on some new product and make something to share with you today. Welcome to the hop! Be sure to leave comments on all the blogs - Hero Arts is giving away four gift certificates - randomly - from all the comments. YAHOOOO! To shop the Hero Arts Store, CLICK HERE. To start at the beginning of the hop CLICK HERE! There are a lot of my favorite craft girls on the list for today! (Full list at the bottom of my post).
One thing I was very smitten by at CHA were the new 3-D houses dies and the matching stamps to go along with them. The possibilities are endless for these products! We have new neighbors on our street, so I used the die and stamps to make a little welcome present and card to give them. I used a mason jar (kind of addicted to mason jars right now) and a soft color palette of yellow, kraft, brown and green to make my project. Let's take a look!
I made two houses out of kraft cardstock. I stamped the teeeny tiny stamps in white ink and brown ink. And added some green vines! The little window boxes were stamped on white paper and cut out by hand. Then I colored them with Copics and added flower centers with a white gel pen. The stamps are so fun - little trees, animals, shutters, doors....so CUTE! It is super easy to assemble the house. It's all one piece, you just fold it and use a little dab of clear glue.
I made these little banners by stamping more of the images from the house stamp set and wrapping them around some floral pins. Under the green paper circle and the button on top of the mason jar, I put some foam tape. That's what the pins are sticking into!
Every detail has been thought of...see the tiny porch light?
My card is a three and a half inch square card. I stamped it to match the mason jar gift and tied yellow twine on both pieces...because that's just cheery!
THANK YOU for coming by today! I hope you enjoy the hop! It's a good one. Lots of inspiration and fun today. Really happy I got to be part of it. Be sure to comment for a chance to win a prize! Have a wonderful day everyone. XOXO
