Color Week Kickoff Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello friends! It’s a super exciting day over at Hero Arts! We are introducing our new Core ink line of color including new colors of ink, cardstock and wait for it ……. reinkers!!!

We are celebrating all week long and kicking it off with a blog hop.

I will be introducing you to the beautiful new Spicy Mustard. If you have been searching for the perfect yellow, look no further!


I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel showing this color in action.

First let’s take a look at the new colors of ink. Welcome to the family Spicy Mustard, Peony, Espresso, Antique Ivory, Amethyst and Mist.

Notice there is also a change in the ink pad lid. Now all of the inks are uniform in design.

Here’s a look at the new Spicy Mustard which matches beautifully with Mustard cardstock.

Speaking of cardstock….. we have some new family members there as well.

I have some more amazing information and a super special deal to share with you but first let’s take a look at my card featuring Spicy Mustard.

The best way for me to highlight this color is with a stencil.

I used the Large Flower stencil and medium blending brush.

So many things came to mind when creating this background but I thought this chubby little bee from the Sweet As Honey stamp set would be adorable on the card.

I added a sentiment from Color Layering Monarch stamped in Intense Black Ink.

Then added splatters using my Gold and White Glimmer Metallic inks.

Once the bee is attached, I finished it off with some sequins from the Winter mix topped off with White Pearls.

Isn’t that yellow dreamy?!

Now take a look at what Hero has to offer you.

They have a swatch chart! Great for stamping out your colors. You can find the swatch chart over on the Hero Arts website.
