a crafty blog hop with ellen hutson & hero arts

Welcome to the Hero Arts & Ellen Hutson hop! We have teamed up today to share some fun cardmaking inspiration and a few prizes too!

If you are hopping with us, you should be arriving from the super gorgeous blog of Janette Kausen! (And you can see the whole hop list over on the EH blog.)

Hero Arts is celebrating their 45th anniversary, isn't that awesome?! As part of their anniversary, they have some new "from the vault" sets that include classic designs from the past that have never before been available in clear stamps. 

I fell in love with the little pup from the From The Vault Birthday and I've been having a blast playing with the set! 

The images have so much fantastic detail, I feel like they don't really need much from me so I've just been adding a tiny touch of color. 


And for this card I used one of my most favorite Hero Arts sets, the Infinity Nesting Circle Dies to create a DIY coverplate. (Seriously I'm afraid I'm going to wear these dies out, LOL!)

I stamped the images to show inside the circle and used Copic BG32 to color all around them.

Did you know that you can also use your Copics to color white pom poms to match? I used Copic RV13 to make that little pom pink.

Now before you head off to do the rest of the hop, let's talk prizes! You can win one of three $25 gift certificates to the Ellen Hutson shop! Winners will be drawn from commenters along the blog hop so make sure to comment at each stop before Friday, June 28th at 11:59pm PST. Winners will be notified by email.

Your next stop is the amazing Ilina Crouse's blog

Have fun and thanks for stopping by!
Carly


And P.S. there is a sale on Hero Arts this weekend at EH, just in case you feel like shopping!
