Hero Arts Winter 2020 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there and welcome as we celebrate the release of the Hero Arts Winter 2020 Collection. This is release is wonderful! Full of lots of holiday and Christmas sets, as well as general winter and autumn lets and the new Unity sets too. Today I have two winter/Christmas projects to share with you. More on the blog hop below.
 

My first project uses the beautiful new Snowflake Medallion Fancy Die, along with the Snowflake Swirl Bold Prints. I started off by die cutting the Hero Arts Snowflake Medallion Fancy Die twice from white cardstock. They were layered one on top of another using Hero Arts Precision Glue. I set it aside and stamped the Hero Arts Snowflake Swirl Bold Prints on to white cardstock. I used Hero Arts Reactive Inks for this and kept it fairly 'messy'. I used Splash, Blue Hawaii and Grape Slush. I then spritzed it using Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz and set it aside to dry.
 
 
Once dry, I adhered the snowflake medallion on top and then cut around the edges using scissors. It was adhered flat on to an A2 white card base with tape runner. The sentiment, from the new Hero Arts Stocking Bouquet Stamp Set, was stamped on to Hero Hues Pitch Black Cardstock using Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. It was cut in to strips and added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few sequins.
 

For my next project, I thought I would create a tag using the Hero Arts Tri-fold Edge Village Fancy Die. This die has three village scenes that you can combine to create a tri-fold card. For my tag, I used just one of them but they can work in different ways. I first cut the Hero Arts Tag Fancy Die twice from white cardstock. Then on one of them, I further cut it down with the village die.
 
 
On the other tag, I blended Hero Arts Reactive Inks in Blue Hawaii, Grape Slush and Thistle. I then spritzed it with Hero Arts White Iridescent Shimmer Spray. Once dry, I adhered the village piece on top with glue. I took the sentiment from the Hero Arts Snowy Town Stamp Set and stamped it on to the front of the tag with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. I then cut the top of the tag from black cardstock and adhered it with glue, adding twine through it and tied it in a bow.
