Hero Arts + Ink Blot Shop Partner Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

*This is my second post of the day, please see below for my Clearly Besotted Teaser*
 
Hello there and welcome as we continue to celebrate Hero Arts 45th Anniversary collaborating with fabulous companies. Today, Hero Arts is partnering with Ink Blot Shop to bring you the wonderful Please Deliver stamp set. The set is designed by Ink Blot Shop but works with lots of Hero Arts sets too. It has been designed to use with envelopes, but as you can see by my card, it works perfectly for cards and other projects too!
 
If you are following along in the hop, you should have arrived from the amazing Libby, but if you get lost along the way, I have the full list of participants below.
 

I started off my card by stamping the set of envelope stamps from the Hero Arts + Ink Blot Shop Please Deliver Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. I then coloured the envelopes with Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies) and then fussy cut out with scissors.
 
 
I took a panel of watercolour paper (3.25" x 8.25") and using a paintbrush and water, messily added on Hero Arts Liquid Watercolours in the same order that I coloured the envelopes. I used Pink, Orange, Dandelion, Leaf, Deep Ocean and Purple. It was set aside to dry before adhering to a 3.5" x 8.5" slimline card base, made from Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock, with foam tape. I took the envelope image and added it on top using thin foam tape.
 
 
I then took the sentiments from the Hero Arts Blessings Stamp & Cut set and stamped them on to more Pitch Black cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set. They were cut in to strips and added to the card with more foam tape. To finish off, I added Hero Arts Crystal Clear Lacquer Pen to the hearts on the envelopes.


Here is a look at the set in full, as you can see there are lots of images that would perfectly for cards and envelopes especially, but also for tags too. Plus lots of smaller images as well.
