Hero Arts – Lily Pond

Hi Friends!!

Have you all seen the 2019 Hero Arts Catalog? I’m really excited I got to create samples for it this year and today, I’m sharing a card made using the Lily Pond Fancy Die. Please note – this new die will not be available for purchase until February 15th. I realize this is a bummer, but we will have a Release Blog Hop (on Feb 15th) and I will share this again to remind you :). I just wanted to share this as a preview so you can get excited and know what’s to come!

Koi and lily ponds are representative of my culture so I thought it was fun to make this card. It’s super simple with such a detailed die! I used a white A2-sized panel and centered the Lily Pond Fancy Die on it and ran it through my die-cutting machine along with the accessory lily flower and koi fish.

Using Copic markers (R32, RV06, R22, R14, R000, G03, G09), I added color to each of the elements. I’m sorry for the very quick coloring. I realize the blending is non-existent. Truth is, I scrambled to get these catalogs done one night before flying out early the next morning for my first vacation in almost 9 years with my husband…it was a very stressful night!

For the background, I used new Hero Arts CARDSTOCK! It’s so exciting, y’all. I don’t use a lot of colored cardstock, but I’m a hoarder and love it none-the-less. I used Hero Hues Mist cardstock for the background and ink blended it using Aquatic ink, with a lighter hand towards the center to create the glow you see above. Then I propped up the Lily Pond panel with the fish using foam adhesive and added the lily flower on the large lily pad. For the sentiment, I embossed it using the new Hero Hues Pitch Black cardstock.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this project and that you’ll check out the new Hero Arts catalog! See if you can spot my cards!

XOXO,
