Everyday Heroes - New Collection Release!

Hi Friends!

Today Heartfelt Creations is debuting the “Everyday Hero’s Collection”!  This is truly a favorite of mine!  I absolutely loved working with the color palette and creating with a collection with a masculine influence!  But the most awesome part of this collection is that the “Everyday Heroes Collection" can easily be used for any and every “hero” in your life – including parents, spouses, family and friends!!  The official product description describes the collection perfectly:
“Do you have an unsung hero in your life?  Your champion may never have a medal pinned to his or her chest, but you can demonstrate your gratitude with the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations.  These epic stamps, dies and papers salute the extraordinary "ordinary people" who inspire us as they live their daily lives with honor and integrity. Greys, teals, khakis, creams and browns have been blended with distressed newsprint, vintage maps, globes, sailing ships, timepieces, combat boots, stripes, dots and flourishes to create a rugged, paper collection that is timeless in its appeal.  Six deeply etched cling stamp sets featuring detailed collages, inspiring sentiments and unique circular elements mesh perfectly with the paper collection and matching set of dies.  Let's sing the praises of the unsung heroes in our lives with the Everyday Heroes Collection from Heartfelt Creations!”

For this card I used the “My Anchor” cling stamp set as my focal point.  I stamped it onto a white cardstock panel and  sponged on TH Distress Inks to color the image.  Next I chose some designer paper from the Everyday Heroes Paper collection and tore and distressed the edges.  I attached my image at an angle onto the distressed panel.  I mounted both panels to a card base covered with more paper from the Paper Collection.

To create a dimensional anchor, I stamped just the corner of the same "My Anchor" image onto black cardstock, covered it with some Clear Wink of Stella marker and die cut it out using the coordinating Anchor die that comes with the collection.  I adhered the die cut piece over the stamped anchor on the front of the card and covered it with Glossy Accents.
I finished my card by adding a nautical charm, gold twine and red stickles for a touch of sparkle on the flags!

Here is a list of the products from the "Everyday Heroes Collection" that I used:
HCPC 3662 - My Anchor Cling Stamp Set
HCDP1-253 Everyday Hero Paper Collection
HCD1-761 Everyday Heroes Die

I hope you get a chance to check out the HC Blog today!!  You’ll LOVE all the different projects the Design Team came up with using the new Everyday Heroes Collection!!
