Hero Arts Spring Catalog will be unveiled later this month, but meanwhile, a selection of pre-release items called “Shopbox 2021” arrived at Paper Anthology over the weekend, and here are some photos! (PS: The brand new Catherine Pooler “Date Night” inks are on their way and you are going to looooove them!)
These products will be available on the PA website next week, but in the meantime, you can call or email Elisabeth to reserve any “must have” items!
The collection includes the Flower Power Stamps and Framecuts from the Unity Collection; Hummingbird Color Layering Stamps and Framecuts; a super-useful Oval Foliage Fancy Die…
…amazing NYC-centric City Heroscapes Stamps and coordinating Framecuts…
…Beautiful Floral and City Windows A2-sized background stamps (which stand alone, but also can coordinate with Hero’s various Peek-a-Boo dies);
…as well as the Love You Stamp and Cut XL set, Sun and Waves Frame Fancy Dies and the Thank You So So So So So Much Cover Die for which Elisabeth made this awesome card!

This three card Class in a Kit is called Homespun Holidays and has a strong winter/seasonal theme, rather than focusing on a particular holiday. All of the stamping (the sentiments are Hero Arts’ Comfort and Joy Clear Stamps) and diecutting (including Sunny Studios’ Warm and Cozy set) has been done for you; and a detailed set of instructions, with individual photos of each card, is provided. You’ll need only basic cardmaking tools and a few adhesives to finish these three sweet and cozy cards. The hardest part might well be deciding which friends to send them to!

Lauren used the MISTI to position and stamp all of the images on one layer of card stock. First the car, then the deer, then the antlers. Each element was given a “basecoat” of its lightest color with Tombow Dual Brush Pens, and shading added with colored pencils. There are, of course, coordinating Christmas Car Critter Dies, but in this case the image was fussycut right at the outlines.
