Hero Arts + Honey Bee Stamps Partner Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there and welcome as we continue to celebrate Hero Arts 45th Anniversary collaborating with wonderful companies. Today, Hero Arts is partnering with Honey Bee Stamps to bring you the wonderful You Are Amazing stamp set. The stamp set is designed by Honey Bee Stamps and work perfectly on it's own or with other sets from both Hero Arts and Honey Bee.

If you are following along in the hop, you should have arrived here from the super talented Lisa, but if you get lost along the way, I have the full list of participants below.


I started off my card by taking a panel of Hero Arts Dove White Cardstock and blending on Hero Arts Reactive Inks on top using ink blending brushes. I used Thistle, Grape Slush and Blue Hawaii.
 
 
Using a Mini MISTI, I took the sentiment from the Hero Arts + Honey Bee You Are Amazing Stamp Set and stamped it on to the panel using Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. I then stamped the hearts from he set too, around the sentiment.  
 
 
Keeping the card very simple, I then simply adhered the panel to an A2 white card base with foam tape and then added a few Moonstone Sequins, adhering with Hero Arts Precision Glue.


Here is a look at the set in full, as you can see, it is filled with wonderful encouraging sentiments, plus great add-on images too.
