Hi everyone! I have so much to share with you today — including a giveaway! — so I’m going to jump right in!
There are four new lines total, love them all! Here’s the scoop on when they are arriving in local stamp stores and when they’ll be in the Hero Arts online store:
- Konichiwa and Plumeria will arrive in local stamp stores starting February 15th and will be in the Hero Arts online store starting March 1st
- PB&J and What’s Up will arrive in local stamp stores starting April 5th and will be in the Hero Arts store starting April 19th
Why the delay in putting the stamps in the Hero Arts online store? It’s so that local stores have time to get the stamps in stock — you see, orders placed in the Hero Arts online store are fulfilled by your local stamp stores! Just one way that Hero Arts supports local businesses.
Now then, today is Wednesday and that means it’s video day! Woo! For today’s video I just had to use two new BasicGrey Plumeria stamps — love them so! Here are the stamps I used!
And here’s the card that I came up with, using a sketch from the monthly challenge!

One of the many things I love about BasicGrey is how their 6×6 paper pads always include papers that are mostly solid with a bit of printing or color to them, so I tried to incorporate that in my card base! So, want to see how I made that BasicGrey style background and watercolored the flowers? Check it out in the video!
Wow, you made it all the way to the end of the post, and the best part: it’s time for a giveaway! Yay! One lucky stamper will receive a $75 shopping spree for the Hero Arts online store!
