Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop!

 Welcome to the Hero Arts Hostess Hop, featuring fabulous stamps from the new 2016 release and winter catalogue! It has been a long time since I have posted on this blog but here I am today!  Happy to be part of the Hero Arts Hostess Blog Hop!!  Being a Hero Arts Hostess Alumni is close to my heart. The ladies are all caring and a great group to be part of.  These days I don't find myself paper crafting near as often as I used to.  But I do craft everyday.  Basically I am crafting for a living lol!  I run my successful etsy shop Anita Rex Designs sending my handmade wreaths all over the world.

If you’ve been following along, you’ve just arrived from Kathy! Hero Arts will be awarding 4 prizes ($25 shopping spree to Hero Arts online shop) from randomly drawn comments. For a chance to win, simply comment on ANY of the stops along the hop on Oct. 24th and 25th, including each day’s ending post at the Hero Club Blog. The more comments you leave, the better your chance of winning! If you find a broken link, you'll find a master list of the hop links at the Hero Arts Blog.
Today I am using the Grateful Leaves Stamp and Die Combo! I love this set! I was inspired to make some home decor instead of cards actually and thought to myself I may as well! I think stamps make fabulous cards but being able to make other stuff like home decor is a great idea! I am starting with what else but a wreath!!

I stamped with Hero Arts shadow inks: butter ball, red royal, cup o'joe, and just rite the leaves and die cut them. Placed them on a brown twine yarn wrapped wreath. Here's a close up of the leaves:

And I made another home decor project perfect for fall:

I made a fall garland by gluing more leaves on some twine!  (I used hot glue it works the best)  Looking around my house I decided the best place to put this twine was on this mirror.  I realize I should hang the fall wreath than the garland but this paper wreath is here to stay on this mirror (after falling and breaking several times I've finally adhered it right to the mirror and it won't be moving! LOL)  

And that's it from me! I hope I've inspired you! The next stop along the hop is to Barb! Thank you so much for stopping by! I don't share too much here anymore but I do on my instagram page Anita Rex Designs and via facebook anitarexdesigns.facebook.com
