Sneak peek week!

Hi everyone, it’s Lisa here!  Have you missed me?  I’ve missed all of YOU!  I’ve been busy busy working on the website — click HERE for a video with highlights of what’s new.  Now I’m back, and I’ve got a super fun week planed with a SNEAK PEEK from our new Holiday and Clings releases EVERYDAY!  WOO HOO!

What are Cling stamps, you ask?  They are repositional stamps, made from the same deep-etched rubber that you’ve come to expect from Hero Arts.  See some cling sneak peeks plus tips for using them here in this video:

Now how about ANOTHER sneak?  Here’s a little snippet to tease you, ha ha!  This is one of my favorite new cling stamps:


Be sure to come back tomorrow when we’ll reveal the whole of Sneak Peek #1, plus show a snippet of Sneak Peek #2!  In the meantime, here’s a little closeup to whet your appetite:


Now for the Weekly Challenge!  This week’s challenge will be to stamp something inspired by any of the sneak peeks. Please include at least one Hero Arts stamp on your project and then upload it to our Flickr Group by 11:59 pm PST on Sunday, August 9. Be sure to tag each challenge submission with the word “sneakyinspiration”. Also!  Be sure to describe what inspired you in your entry. By entering you could win a shopping spree of your choice of Hero Arts products from the NEW Hero Arts Online Store! (Shipping charges apply.) Winners will also receive a 2009 Hero Arts catalog, sent separately. The prize amounts are as follows:

  • NEW! Digital Winner! (create something using a Hero Arts Digital Kit): $50
  • Fresh Face Winner (someone who has not yet won a contest): $50
  • Scrapbook Page Winner: $50
  • 1st Place: $50
  • 2nd Place: $25
  • 3rd Place: $15

Here’s a card that I did to show you what I mean.



This card was inspired by the following elements of Sneak Peek #1:

  • Pink, red and green color combination
  • Rounded corners
  • The lime strip with white text at the bottom
  • Gingham ribbon
  • Glitter!


Now, how about another card?  The cherries in the sneak made me think of another yummy fruit — strawberries!



Other inspiration that I drew from Sneak Peek #1:

  • Rounded corners
  • Pink, red and green color combination
  • Fruit!


  • Sneak Peek! Cling Antique Brocade (CG102)
  • Clear Design Everyday Sayings
  • Design Block Grid
  • Pumpkin Patch Chalk Queue
  • Memories ArtPrint Brown
  • Other: Brown marker (Sakura), white pigment ink (Colorbox), ribbon (American Crafts), Silhouette by QuicKutz (to cut the strawberry), strawberry  digital image (QuicKutz, strawberry_0733), Marketing Script font from Font Squirrel

Now, how about one more SNEAK PEEK for today?  Pink, red + green are a hot trend for Christmas this year, so I just had to create a card using that combination!  Another thing that inspired me from Sneak Peek #1 is the shape of the area to write a message — love that brackety shape!




I love stamping a message on the inside of Hero notecards!  They are white inside so the message shows up really well.


  • Sneak Peek! Clear Design Lots of Merry (CL355)
  • Sneak Peek! Clear Design Let the Angels Sing (CL354) - for the bird
  • Design Block Grid
  • Other: Copic Markers in Cadmium Red (R27), Sugared Almond Pink (RV02), Begonia Pink (RV14), Lemon Yellow (Y13), Yellow Green (YG03), Lettuce Green (YG09), Chamois (E35), Caribe Cocoa (E25), die cut frame (QuicKutz, Frame_1025 digital download), QuicKutz Silhouette
