I'm so happy to be included in this week's Hero Arts Blog Hop. Check each day the week of January 10th, 2011 for the blog hoppinest fun and inspiration from the Hero Arts past hostesses! Definition of "hoppinest" is the best blog Hopping ever! But you'll never find that word in the dictionary. I just love the new 2011 stamps I received from Hero Arts to explore different techniques and designs.

This first card up is my favorite card of all and I didn't know what to do with it at first. Two inch blocks on black topped by 2 1/4 inch sparkly square on black background square. The Large Blossom, (CG271) was a late bloomer for me. I was fooling around with different embossing powders when I found some old glitter embossing powder that just pulled this whole card together.
A "Special Note of Thanks", (CL499) lets me thank you for visiting. I heat embossed the wreath and used pencils to color in. However, I wanted a whiter white, so I used white Enamel Accents on the petals, which really pop the flowers on the kraft background. The sentiment would be good for a get well, sympathy, or just sending caring thoughts.
Now remember to leave a comment because every comment left along the hop gives you a chance to win new Hero Arts 2011 stamps!

Got a new stamp and it's perfect for ATCs
My new Hampton Art stamp was a great find at Michaels and I really do like their arty stamps. Isn't this a great stamp and the Rangers Distress inks just add wonderful color and vibrancy.
