I'm so excited to be able to debut a few of the new Hero Arts 2011 Catalog stamps in this post today! wooohooo! AND to be a part of the 2011 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop!
It's already been a crazy start to the month of December for me (hence the lack o'blogging!)... but - i did find time to make a little somethin-somethin with these new stamps...
I've always loved the stamp sets that Hero comes up with, and these were no exception.
For my little "Six Months" layout of Noah (with a quick couple of pics from this week!) I used two new stamp sets. The first stamp was a new cling stamp - CG245 - Classic Fabric Design - and I stamped it using a sparkle watermark ink onto kraft cardstock, and then layered it beneath my photo...
The second set that I used was the Find Joy - CL497 set - which has lots of fabulous sentiments included in it, as well as a few sweet, small sized images. I stamped a few of the sentiments onto kraft cardstock "tabs" using brown Staz On ink and then machine stitched them to my page.
I also randomly stamped the leave and heart design onto my page using Pumice Stone Distress Ink to finish off the look.
...& now it's time to link to the next blogger on the Hero Arts blog hop list... It's Kelly Rasmussen - I can't wait to see what she has made!
and - Remember, If you find a link that doesn't work, you can always hop back to the Hero Arts Blog for a list of direct links to all the blogs in the hop.
