studio calico + hero arts blog hop


I'm so excited to be a part of the Studio Calico + Hero Arts blog hop today!

Let's cut right to the chase. I am in serious LOVE with these new stamp designs! My heart skipped a beat the day they arrived, and several have since found a home in my "most used" basket pile. I know you're going to love them too! (FYI, stamps will be available in August.)

Today I'm sharing a home decor project -- a little something I made for my daughter's room. After printing the song lyrics onto white cardstock, I filled the canvas with lots of Studio Calico + Hero Arts images. No patterned paper here, just pure stamps and ink.


Here's a closer look at the cute woodgrain cloud, fabulous circle designs, and sweet polka dot butterfly. Oh, and the grid pattern in the background...yum!

  
---- New Studio Calico + Hero Arts stamps used ----
ST508 "My Happy" (circle frame) • ST509 "Hooray" (cloud)
ST510 "You are the Best" (floral circle) • ST503 "Grid Pattern"


Don’t forget there are stamps up for grabs! Be sure to comment here and on ALL of the designer's blogs for a chance to win. Hero Arts is giving away 5 sets each day of the hop, Monday through Wednesday, with the winners drawn from all blog hop comments.

Next up is the blog of Studio Calico design team member Kelly Noel. CLICK HERE to see what she's created today!

Have fun hopping, and thanks so much for stopping by! :)
