Hello, Hero!

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!

NEW Class in a Kit: Homespun Holidays

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!

Christmas in July!

Christmas in July is the new challenge at Shopping our Stash!   Just perfect for me…I had to come up with a card quick for this month’s Christmas Card Club.  I really wanted to play with the new Hero Arts set that came in from the ShopBox as I’ve been all about Scandinavian prints lately, and I really wanted to break out some embossing powders.  I embraced my love of green and came up with this:

 

Background stamp is from Studio 490, inks are from Catherine Pooler and embossing powders are from Ranger.   A touch of Antique linen and Tea dye to grunge it up and finish it off!

 

Thanks for stopping by!

Quilty

Good morning everyone!  I’ve been playing with the Concord and 9th stamp set – Bits and Pieces to get some “Hi, How are you?” cards made for our Cards Pals group when I saw this weeks challenge at Shopping our Stash – SOS 387 : inspired by quilting!  Well, this set has some bits and pieces that totally had me feeling quilty, so I pulled together a quick thank you card using distress inks and a great new word die from Hero Arts.  A little bit of faux stitching pulls everything together!
