Hero Arts 2014 Catalog Blog Hop

Hello, and welcome to the Hero Arts 2014 Catalog Blog Hop.
If you have come from Sandy's blog, then welcome. If not, head over to the Hero Arts blog to start form the beginning and see lots of amazing new stamps in action! :)
I have two cards to share with you today… AND news of giveaways a-plenty!
First up, a card featuring the new Nicest Thoughts stamp. I love this one… For my card, I stamped the image onto some patterned paper from THIS pad and added a tiny stamped butterfly from the new Butterfly set set. I added Rock Candy Stickles and Glitter to the sentiment, and a tiny gemstone too. The butterfly paper is from THIS cool pad.
j
I love the soft sparkle effect of Rock Candy Glitter… it's so pretty.

And my second card…
For this card, I used an adorable bear image from the Lil Hoot set. To create a mirror image, I stamped the bear onto an acrylic block, then again onto the polka dot paper. I used a black fineliner pen to fill in the missing bits and voila - a cute pair of snuggly little bears! The sentiment is from the gorgeous and oh-so-useful Enjoy Today set and the patterned papers are from THIS and THIS pad.

And what cutsie card would be complete without some tiny wiggle eyes???
