Hero Hostess Day 3!

Hero Arts is hopping again.  We Hosti are hopping with excitement because of the new Hero Arts stamps.  
Hostess Banner_Blog Hop_600_REV
I'm loving the new stamps and how versatile they are and have been sharing the new stamps at Die Cut Divas.  
I have 3 cards for you today.

The blog hop begins with Hero Arts blog with a list of my fellow happy hostesses (past hostess in name only).  Once you're a Hero Arts hostess, you're always a Hero Arts hostess.  You should have arrived here from  Heather Doran, (Stamping and Stitching).

Hero Arts will be awarding prizes from randomly drawn comments. For a chance to win, simply comment on ANY of the stops along the hop on ANY day, including each day’s starting post at the Hero Club Blog
The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning! 



Is there a background stamp in there?  Yes, I went background crazy.  A little bit of everything, from Rangers Distress Paints in White and Victorian Velvet, Adirondack's Cool Peri, Blue Denim and Eggplant.,  then a bit of green.  I then lightly scattered some glitter embossing powder and Egyptian Gold embossing powder on the card.  Surprised myself and love it.  The flower petal is the result of a happy accident with fine glitter and Glossy Accents.  Some Red Stickles made it into the center of the flower.  All new stamps on this card.  Love the stamps and matching dies!
Can you see the background?

I love the new Hero Arts stamps and dies.
Hero Arts Butterfly and Flower (CL750)
Hero Arts Flower and Butterfly Frame Cut (DI090
Hero Arts Pattern Stripes K5884
I added Glitter & Red Stickles

Using the same background stamp, I stamped it in Hero Arts Soft Blossom Shadow Ink and then brushed the ink on the die-cut panel as I didn't have my sponges with me.  It works!  The yellow is a PanPastel (yes the banner IS darker).

Recipe:
Hero Arts Pattern Stripes K5884
Hero Arts  3 X 4 Frame DI084
Hero Arts Soft Blossom Shadow Ink

My third card - no muss & no fuss.  I could make mountains all day long.  I love the different ways you can use the mountains to make valleys, layer ranges, create your own unique backdrop.  Everything on this card is a stamp from the set.  Great guy card and you could use this for anything.  What a guy and inside any of the following sentiments and more (iHappy Birthday), (Congratulations), (Thank you), or to someone who loves to fish, hike, is an adventurer).
Recipe:
Hero Arts OWN What a Guy! (CL753)
Hero Arts cubes (inks) in 2 greens, the fish in Grape Juice
Mountains stamped in Memento London Fog, the eagle in Memento Rich Cocoa

Be sure to leave a post because Hero Arts will be giving away prizes and if you don't comment, you won't win..  I will be giving away this cling set, Surprise (CG428)  and clear set Florentine Message Bordor (CL530) to a lucky winner who posts a comment by 9:00 p.m.Friday, Pacific time in sunny California.  I'll post the winner on Saturday, January 25th, 2014. Sets donated by my LSS, The Stamp Art Shoppe.  Wish I could send you chocolate too.
  
Your next stop along the way is Marcy Kaminski, (En Papillote Arts) who will knock your socks off!  I did peek, you see.
