Hero Arts 45th Anniversary Blog Hop--Day 2




It's Day 2 of Hero Arts 45th Anniversary Blog Hop! Join us for three days of
celebrating Hero Arts' 45th Anniversary--wow!--and the launch of their
2019 Summer Catalog.

Hero Arts was my introduction to stamping and their Flickr group was where
I found friendships that continue till today. I'm thrilled and honored to be one of
the stops in today's lineup.
 
First, here's my card that I created using the From the Vault All Stamp Bold Prints
Catalog Bundle. I wanted the background stamp because it features images from some
of their earliest woodblock stamps that they pulled "from the vault." And as a bonus,
I received the Summer Catalog--such a great deal!
I white embossed the stamp and did my favorite ink distressing in rainbow colors.
I found the perfect sentiment  in the Believe in Yourself Narwhal set. I white embossed it
on a piece of black card stock and trimmed it, then popped it up on the card.



And it wouldn't be a celebration without PRIZES and Hero Arts pulled out all the stops
with the help of some amazing and generous friends and sponsors.




Visit Hero Arts for the list of prizes and the list of today's hop participants.

The hop wraps up tomorrow, Day 3, and starts at the Hero Arts blog.
Winners will be drawn from people who comment along the blog hop for all three days.
The more you comment, the better your chances of winning!

Comment by Sunday, June 2nd at 11:59PM PST and winners will be announced
on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

Thanks so much for celebrating Hero Arts' 45th Anniversary!
