Crafty Friends: Hero Arts

Hey friends!! We are back for the September hop. And this time we are featuring the amazing and wonderful, ever so supportive of the entire crafting industry, Hero Arts! They have been in business for 45 years, helping others to build their businesses along the way.

Hero Arts has generously offered a 20% discount code to our viewers for a limited time. (There are some restrictions on the discount. But hey,  20% discount!!)

I also created a process video for the card I created. Check it out!

I have been making 5"x7" cards for work lately. I am finally getting my poop in a scoop enough to start making birthday cards for my coworkers, and I need to make them big enough for about 30 people to sign!

So, what did I learn with this process? I learned how to make my 6"x6" background stamps cover a 6.5" long panel! It only works with linear repetitive designs, but there are lots of those! It involves a stamp positioner and some creative paper movement. Check out the video above for the whole process.

I did use Hero Hues Reactive Inks to ink blend the background also.

I colored the images with Copics. And forgot to write down the colors I used. I know, what was I thinking! The confetti was stamped using the Key Lime Fizz and Blue Hawaii inks, the same as the background was blended with.

I used Sakura Gelly Roll Glaze pens to add Clear, Black, and White details to all of the Copic colored images.

I even added a cute die cut kitten in a box and a sentiment from the stamp set to the inside of the card.

So, what do you think? Ready to try making bigger cards? And how about all the amazing products from Hero Arts? Time to go shopping, right?! Don't forget that coupon code, good for 2 days only.

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your blog.
It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for
me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a developer to create your theme?
Outstanding work!
