Hero Arts hello there!

12/31/17 DT Favorite at A Perfect Time To Craft Open Challenge!

Hi everyone! The December Make It Pop challenge is live over on the a2z Scrapbooking blog and I’m super excited to share my DT inspiration project using the Hero Arts Color Layering Parrot stamps and dies, and quite a few Hero Arts inks. Not only did I use lots of layers but I used lots of stamps and lots of color!

I have to tell you that this color layering stamp set (and dies) are sold out in the a2z Scrapbooking store. I hate to admit that I messed up and created this project for our challenge this month not realizing they were sold out, but I do have good news – you can special order the stamps and dies at no extra cost when you order your other Hero Arts stamps from a2Z Scrapbooking!

This is probably one of my favorite Hero Arts stamp sets and I was really excited to use it. I created a double fun fold and used just about every stamp in the set. Lots of color and lots of layers. And my all-time favorite color – green. ;)


Here’s a shot of the first fold open from right to left to reveal a sentiment.


And here’s a shot of the second fold open from bottom to top to reveal another sentiment. Isn’t this just stinkin’ cute?!
