Click HERE for my SugarPea Designs Spring Product Release Day post.




Have you heard the news?!  The 2018 Summer Catalog by Hero Arts is being revealed today!   Click HERE to view it!  This catty is filled with goodness.  I'm grateful to have a couple cards in this issue, I'm revealing one of them today.

One of the new product lines is:

Hero Florals™ is a new collection of flower stamps and dies that offer a garden of creativity.


My card features DC234 Hero Florals Dahlia Stamp & Cut:


I heat embossed the Dahlia bloom on a panel from the Earth Mix Layering Paper pack.  I trimmed it down and adhered it to an A2 Black panel from the Midnight Mix Layering Paper pack.


Don't you love the Handmade Kindness Fancy Die?  It's been cut in Midnight.  I used the Tag Frames Infinity Dies on the gorgeous Decorative Woodgrain Cardstock.

Look for Summer Catalog products to start shipping to your favorite retailers towards the end of this month, and in the Hero Arts Online Store on May 16.

Sending Sentiments Stamp set


I ADORE sentiment stamp sets...throw in mixed fonts and I'm in love!


I combined the Sending Sentiments with the Oh La La stamps + coordinating SugarCuts.  I also popped in the Parisian flag colors in the previously released Diagonal Striped CoverPlate.

If you've been following me for a while, you'll see vellum quite a bit in my projects.  It helps some of the focal points to not get lost in the overall design.  I love that croissant form the Oh La La set.

I added panels from the Spots & Stripes Pastels Patterned Paper Collection.  The 'fabulous' has been cut with peach craft foam.  It adds so much dimension to the card design.

My card was inspired by the color palette from this month's Mix It Up Challenge:
