2013 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop

***Please note, this is my second post of the day. If you care to see the first one, just click here.***
Hello and welcome to the 2013 Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop!  Please make yourself at home here, take a seat and have a peek at what I have to share with you today. I'm excited to be bring you a peek at some new goodies!
 
Take a look...
How about a little boutique influence? Inspired by my recient visit to Urbanic in Venice, CA.  What a dream that store was! I adored the look of all the simple one layer gold letterpressed cards and had to recreate one of my own (sans the letterpressing of course).  I'd say mine came out just as cute!
To create, I simply stamped this adorable owl (F5725), in gold ink, onto a rustic white card base.  Once the ink dried I stamped the sentiment (C5466) in black ink.  Just a note, both stamps are wood mounted and stamp wonderfully.  Then finished the card off with a strip of black cardstock.

Up for a giveaway?!  Hero Arts will be giving away several prize packs, with winners randomly chosen from ALL of the blog hop comments received by midnight PST on Monday, December 17. So be sure to leave me some love before you hop away!

Now it's time to move on, and the talented Lucy Abrams will be your next stop.  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.

Thanks so very much for hopping by!
