Hi there and welcome to my stop on the Hero Arts Winter Catalog Blog Hop! I am so excited to be hopping along with this group of fabulous ladies and all of you today, so thanks for stopping by. You should have arrived here from the blog of the amazing Amy Tan.
Hero Arts is giving away three $25 shopping sprees, drawn from comments left across all blogs in the hop. Please comment by Sunday, August 28 at 11:59pm PT and the winner will be announced the following week.
For this hop I created these fun and simple cards for you using the Origami Holiday Stamp and Die Combo :
Here is a closer peek at each. For the Santa Card, I paper pieced the origami santa and added him to a window card filled with holiday sequins:
The second card that I created using the deer stamp was embossed in gold, and I colored in each of the folds with a different color to create a fun and modern holiday card:
My favorite of the 3 may be this sweet little penguin that has been watercolored and placed on a snowbank created by swiping gesso over blue paint that was painted onto the card base. I finished off the card with a sprinkle of golden "snow":
And one more just for fun, I stamped a whole bunch of the Santas to create a background paper for my card, and colored them in loosely with watercolor and a spattering of black paint for some interest. I finished off the card with some red and white twine, and the tiniest little jingle bell. Isn't it fun?
The next stop on the hop is the super talented Debbie Olson and I am sure she has created some winter magic for you, so hop on over and take a peek! The full list of hop stops is below:
