Excited doesn't begin to describe the feeling I have today.  I am beyond ecstatic to announce that we have joined forces with Hero Arts for a collaborative stamp and die set called BETTER TOGETHER!  When I was first approached about this I may have jumped up and down, done a little dance and sang a little happy song (more than once, even).  When I regained some professional composure, I sat down to write a note to say that I would love to be part of something so great.
While I don't remember for sure, I am pretty certain that a Hero Arts stamp was my first stamp.  If it wasn't my very first, it was definitely in the first few that I procured.  I've always admired their company.  Of course they have wonderful designs, but over the years I've taken more notice of what they stand for and how they build up everyone in this industry.  It is truly admirable and humbling. For all of the above, I thank Hero Arts.  We truly are BETTER TOGETHER!
I've had been sitting on this stamp design for quite some time, just waiting for the right time to release it.  When this all came about, I knew that this was "the right time."  While all of the design concepts for Reverse Confetti are mine, I can not draw to save my life and send everything off to our team of illustrators to work on.  Not this time!  I handed over the concept drawings to my 14 year old daughter, Ellie.  Having her work on this makes all of it even more special and, of course, I am one proud mama! In addition all of this wonderful news, we are happy to announce that all net profits from this set will be donated to the Human Rights Campaign.
And, if all that wasn't enough amazing-ness, there's a giveway to go with this blog hop!
We are giving away $50 gift cards to TWO lucky winners, drawn from comments left across the blog hop. One gift code will be to the Hero Arts store, and the other to Reverse Confetti. Comment on the hop by Thursday, February 25th at 11:59pm pst. The more blogs you leave comments on, the more chances to win!
I have a couple of cards to share with you today using this fun set.  This is a multi-step stamp set and there are so many possibilities when combining each of the different elements.  This layering guide is on the back of the stamp set, as well.
 
My first card today uses the solid portion of the flower, as well as 2 of the layering design elements.
The solid portion of the flower is stamped in Tangerine ink and then layered with the scalloped stripe element in Rust ink and finally topped with the polka dot layering that is stamped in white pigment ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
The scalloped line at the top of the flower is stamped in Magenta ink.  The die cut of this flower is a little longer on the bottom than the image itself so that you can easily adhere it to the back of the flower without losing any detail.   The stamen are stamped in Stormy ink, as is the sentiment.
 
I stamped multiple leaves to layer under the 3 flowers.  They are stamped in Lime Green and Avocado Inks.  You can use these leaves flipped either way, adding to the fun and versatility of this set.
 
. . . . .
 I'm not one for making multiples of my cards, but I really do like this sweet and simple design and I love knowing that I can use an infinite number of color combos to create unique cards. 
I started by stamping the solid portion of the flower in Magenta ink and then adding the stripe detail in Wine ink.
 
The scalloped edge detail is stamped in Iced Aqua, which I also pulled in with a strip of cardstock behind the sentiment.  The leaves are stamped in Lime Green and Avocado inks and the stem is stamped in Lime Green.
 
I have an immense amount of pride for this stamp and die set and I hope that you love it, too!  It is available for purchase through Hero Arts HERE.  Don't forget that the net profits from this set will be donated to Human Rights Campaign, who also believes that we are all BETTER TOGETHER!  I'm sending you on your way to see what everyone has created using this set.  Leave a comment at each stop along the way for a chance to win!
