Hi there! Welcome to the next stop on the Hero Arts 2012 Catalog Blog Hop!
I just love catalog release time...nothing like new stamps to spark some creativity! Today's hop celebrates the Catalog Debut, and tomorrow stores around the world will be starting to kick off their preview party events. So much fun! These stores will be the first to have the newest 2012 Hero Arts stamps! (Check for locations here.)
Now onto my project! Today I'm sharing a pair of simple, colorful cards that could be given as Valentines or just to send a little sweetness any day of the year.
Did you spot the new background? It's CG422 Zig Zag. YUM. One of my new favorites! It's stamped with Hero Arts Soft Sand Shadow Ink onto an off-white letterpress notecard.
Those fun hearts come from the CG426 Four Hearts Cling set. I added a touch of faux stitching with black pen to the edges, and one heart on each card is lifted with foam adhesive.
Here's a look at all three of the new stamps I used on my cards. They're already arriving in stores, and will available in the Hero Arts Online Store on January 5th along with many, many more!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Remember, Hero Arts is having FIVE giveaways that include lots of brand spankin' new 2012 stamps and all you need to do to enter is comment on any of the participating blogs, including mine! More comments = more chances to win! And if you don't have time to do the entire hop today? No worries. You have until Monday, December 12 at midnight PST to hop and comment.

Happy hopping and happy holidays, everyone!
