Hello friends!! Today we are celebrating the release of Hero Arts 2021 Holiday Catalog!! There are a ton of new holiday themed products now available that are sure to put you in a festive mood and help you get a jump start on those Christmas cards!!

I have four cards to share featuring a bunch of new products so lets dive right on in! First up is a card I created featuring the fun Happy Holidays Cover Plate and Color Layering Snowflakes Stamp Set.

To create this card I first stamped and silver sparkle embossed the snowflakes from the Color Layering Snowflake Stamp Set on to the front of an A2 top-folding white card base. I then ink blended over the card front with several reactive inks (Pool Party, Splash & Blue Hawaii).

Next, I die cut an A2 panel of white cardstock with the Happy Holidays Cover Plate. I then adhered the panel to the front of my card with foam adhesive. Lastly, I stamped and silver heat embossed a sentiment onto silver mirrored cardstock, fussy cut it out and adhered it to my card front with foam adhesive.

My next card features the beautiful Christmas Rose stamp set and dies.

To create this card I first stamped the main image from the Christmas Rose stamp set in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto white cardstock. I then copic colored the image and then die cut it out with the matching dies. Next, I stamped the front of a A2 top-folding card base made from Sand cardstock with the Woodgrain Bold Prints stamp in Pumpkin Pie ink.

Next, I stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Christmas Rose stamp set onto black cardstock and then fussy cut it out. Lastly I finished the card by adhering my image and sentiment to the card front with foam adhesive and then adding red sequins accents.

My next card features the festive Holly Berries stamps and dies as well as the Buffalo Check Pattern Bold Prints cling stamp.

To create this card I first stamped two holly sprigs from the Holly Berries stamp set onto bristol smooth paper in INTENS-ified Black Ink. I then watercolored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. When I finished watercoloring the images I then die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I stamped the front of an A2 top-folding card base made from Cherry cardstock with the Buffalo Check Pattern Bold Prints stamp in INTENS-ified Black Ink.

I then throughly dried the card front and then stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the Holly Berries stamp set. Lastly, I finished my card by adhering the holly sprigs with foam adhesive, trimming off the over hang, and then adding Crystal Clear Lacquer to the berries.

My last card for today features the stunning Nativity Stencil and the handy Christmas Holidays Stamp & Cut XL.

To create this card I first ink blended over the front of an A2 top-folding white card base and Nativity Stencil with several reactive inks (Lemon Drop, Fruit Punch, Taffy, Grape Slush, Blue Hawaii, and INTENS-ified Black Ink). After I ink blended the card front I then stamped a star from the Holiday Ornaments stamp set in Lemon Drop and Creamsicle.

Next, I stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the Christmas Holidays Stamp & Cut XL onto black cardstock. I then trimmed the sentiment down to a strip and finished the card by adhering it to the card from with foam adhesive.

  4. WOWSERS!!! Channin, there is gorgeousness everywhere I look on your site today. The Xmas Rose card is a stunner, I adore that one with the Nativity silhouettte, and (squeal!!) those holly branches and berries are BEAUTIFUL!! The Happy Holiday word die also called to me before but I held firm. My resolve, however, is cracking swiftly…. thanks? Just kidding! Thanks! It’s fantastic!
