Hero Arts Winter Catalog Release

It's SO hard to talk about winter when it's LITERALLY forty billion degrees outside, but I do understand that in SOME places, the back to school season means something I hear is called fall. And, I also hear that in some places, it's actually cold at Christmas, so I play along, in hopes that our temperatures will drop.

Today is the day the Hero Arts Winter Catalog is released, and it's amazing, as per usual. Last year, I was so inspired to create Christmas cards through the fall, I didn't even have to make any - I had enough unique cards on hand to be able to mail to everyone on my list, and I'm pretty sure I'll be in a similar situation this year, thanks to an abundance of lovely wintery and holiday stamps.

First up - something I LOVE and have a hard time finding - a perfect angel. My mom is always seeking out the perfect angel stamp, and I think this might be it.

This beauty is this stamp, and I colored her with this art print brown liquid watercolor, and added gold pen around her halo and shimmer on her wings. Other than that, she is all the same color. I mounted the watercolor paper onto glitter paper and then onto this beautiful brown card base.

You don't need a bunch of colors to make a beautiful watercolored image, I promise. Even though you should still have all the watercolors, because that's what we do.

But we can't be super elegant all the time, so I decided to do a little no line watercolor with this adorable Christmas Mice set and the Deer & Ornament fancy dies in glitter paper and white. The background is from a Bach music book I bought at Half Priced Books.

What is the holiday season without a stunning blue deer?? I used Indigo, Cornflower and Intense Black inks for the deer, and finished it with Circle Infinity Dies and these sequins. Such a sweet little deer. If I stumbled upon a perfectly blue little fawn in the woods, I'd know Narnia was the real deal.

Well so we've done elegant, cutesy and modern - how about snarky?? Check out the What the Fig Stamp & Cut! THIS CRACKS ME UP! Texas is big time fig country. As a matter of fact, my previous neighbors planted a community fig tree in their yard before they moved, letting the new owner know she had to share all the figs, which she does. Some fun trivia - cats LOVE figs. If you have a fig tree, you might come out and find a fat tabby with a fig food baby lounging underneath your tree. I actually borrowed part of a branch from the community tree last year to do a watercolor sketch of, which you can see here.

Anyway, for this card, I used the Circle Infinity dies to cut and mask a circle opening on my card front. Then I used my life changing brushes to ink blend inside the circle with Soft Granite Ink. I then stamped more figs in Soft Granite inside the ink blended circle. I stamped and cut out the fig images to layer on top in Mulled Wine and Lemon Yellow ink. Those are ACTUAL fig colors - it's sort of amazing. The sentiment is in Intense black, and I mounted it on a black card base.

It's not the fall/winter holidays without Halloween though - pretty much my favorite. I embossed the Halloween Mirror Skull in clear on a white card panel, and then used my brushes to ink blend Strawberry, Tangerine, Butter Bar, Green Apple, Summer Sky and Grape Juice inks around it, after masking off a stripe with low tack masking tape. Then I stamped the sentiment in Intense Black.

 Too scary? Okay - then we'll head back to the safety of winter images. Wait - unless that cabin is the one from THE SHINING!!! No - it's not. I promise. Ish.

ANYHOO - I masked off a snowbank with my favorite masking paper and then stamped the tree image from this set, stamping it first in green in the MISTI, then just on the edge in Wet Cement to add a shadow. Then I masked that, and stamped the cabin on top of that. So at that point, there are two masks down - the hillside and the tree. You have to think about what things go in front of what things when you are masking. I normally get it completely wrong the first time, so don't be discouraged.

I colored the cabin with Copics.

Then I stamped the little girl image from this set, and then masked snowbanks behind her and lightly brushed on Cornflower ink with my brushes.

I colored her with Copics and then added glue and glitter to the snow and cabin. I love her little Scandinavian look.

And YAY - a Hanukkah set!! I am always looking for these, so I was psyched to see this one. It's simple and classy. 

I embossed the star of David images from this set in clear and in Silver Sparkle embossing powder which looks gold here for some reason, but I promise it's not. 

Then I used Indigo Liquid Watercolor for an abstract background behind them. When that was dry, I used my Chrome Pen to draw the strings to each star, and I mounted the whole panel on the same glitter paper I cut the wishes from. The Hanukkah is stamped in Intense Black.This would be an easy one to mass produce.

This is just a wee bit of the catalog, but I couldn't help myself, and had to play with lots of it.

If you want to hop today, my sweet and kind friend Libby is next on the hop. I love her despite the fact that she left me to go to Georgia - but she's only a text away :). You can win one of two $50 shopping sprees by commenting today!

I hope that if you are in a cooler place than here that you are enjoying the change in season. If you are in a zone like mine - I wish you freon and ice.

Loveyameanitbye.

You think you send in the cards for the catalogs and shows, but really, they go to Libby's secret little Lydia card shrine. Never come visit me, it would be embarrassing...

  33. Wow, you covered it all. I have to say, the angel is my favorite. I hear you about the heat. Being in Florida, we have hot weather until late October. Really hot weather until late October. And only a couple of really cold days until it starts heating up again in February. So, it's hard for me to get into the winter season. Maybe that's why I love fall leaves and snowflakes. Neither of which we ever get here. Awesome cards. Even the blue deer. :-) Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  77. I get the part about "leftover" Christmas cards--it's kinda hard to stop making them, isn't it? The blue deer was a bit of a surprise, but very cool. Love the figgy one..way too much fun. Really, they are all wonderful. Well, maybe not the halloween, but not all of us are into the whole skull thing. Thanks for the inspiration and a really fun to read blog post!

  82. Lydia, what can I say that hasn't been said? I always am blown away by your creations each time I visit. You are right about the angel being the perfect one. It is a beauty & you did it justice as it looks so elegant. I quite like the surprise of seeing the blue deer & while Narnia may not be real, the msg. of it is. I think my favourite card is the log house & the little girl carrying firewood. While I am not a winter person, this card touches my heart. Thanks so much!

    ReplyDelete
  83. Such an inspiring group of cards! I absolutely agree that this angel is the perfect angel stamp that I have seen! I love the cute cabin card! I really have to try masking using the removable labels! Such a great idea! I am learning so many tips and techniques throughout this hop! Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Very creative and unique cards. I LOVE that sweet little mouse, and my heart melted over that little blue deer. The little guy looks like he had too much egg nog and fell in a paint bucket! Lol!!! I was back and forth between laughing and nearly crying for him! Thanks for sharing---have a great day!

    ReplyDelete
  100. I agree about the Angel, she is beautiful and your coloring is stunning on her. Now I gotta love elegant, cutesy, modern, and snarky (the fig reminds me that my Grandmother always told me to make sure nothing else was eating the fig before I picked it up off the ground.....it was years later that I realized she meant snakes ROFL). Then you had to go and mention The Shining (one of 2 scary movies I've ever seen and I still have nightmares about lol) but you made the cabin look better so here's hoping..... Thanks for giving us so many options with this release and all the inspiration, I love it all!
