Pear Blossom Press and Hero Arts Collaboration Hop

 



Welcome to the Bold & Bright Hop with Hero Arts and Pear Blossom Press! You’re going to see some of the coolest light-up cards, all featuring your favorite stamps and dies from Hero Arts. Get ready for lots of inspiration, and be sure to comment as you hop along, for your chance to win a $50 store credit!





I really love the card I made for this hop - is it okay to say that? Haha! It's bright and vibrant and glittery! And it lights up! Watch my video above for a full tutorial! 







I started with the cake in my process video, so let's start there! I stamped the cake and candles from the Hero Arts Time for Cake Stamp Set and colored the rainbow center with Copic Markers. I didn't color the outside of the cake at all - I have something special in mind! I scooped out a small bit of Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel and spread it around the cake with a palette knife. Now I have a chunky, glittery, iced cake! It took almost no time to dry, too!





I wanted to create a special background, so I used the Hero Arts Porthole Fancy Die, but I cut off the outer circle which made it look like a porthole. Now it just looks like a circular grid backdrop. I used i-Brush Blending Brushes to blend on a rainbow of Distress Oxide Inks and added some gold watercolor spatters on top. I adhered the Porthole Fancy Die-Cut piece on top. 






Before I go any further with the front of the card - let's light it up! I pierced three small holes in my background where the candles from my cake would lay. I marked the placement of the lights on my card base as well as where I need to place my button. It's is SO easy to assemble the EZ Lights! The whole process took a little more than 3 minutes! You can't beat that! A real game changer is the double thick foam tape carried by Pear Blossom Press! It makes assembling any kind of interactive card a breeze. I highly recommend that you grab a roll! 






Now let's finish up the front of the card. I wanted a die cut sentiment to go on my card so I cut apart the Hero Arts Happy Birthday Cake Fancy Die! I die cut it from gold cardstock and trimmed the little tabs at the beginning and end of the sentiments to make a stand alone die cut sentiment. 






Every good hop has prizes, right? So Hero Arts, and Pear Blossom Press are each giving away a $50 store credit! Comment on this post by January 29, 2021 to be entered to win. Winners will be posted on the Pear Blossom Press Blog on February 6, 2021.
