Wow… it’s been a busy year here at Hero Arts! We’ve released 5 new catalogs; hundreds of new stamps have hit the shelves; and our designers have created scores of beautiful and inspirational cards. So as we say goodbye to 2013, we thought we’d take this opportunity to look back and review what’s been a fabulous year.
January saw the release of our 2013 catalog and our artists couldn’t wait to get playing with the new stamps. Love and hearts were in the air as card makers prepared for Valentine’s Day, and Kelly’s gorgeous card below showcased stamping on wooden embellishments. We loved it! February was the perfect month for using the True Love collection which we released in collaboration with Basic Grey. Lisa’s stunning card below featured white embossing on Eggshell paper which we think looks fantastic!
March and April saw the arrival of Spring, and our artists had lots of fun creating Spring cards. Tami’s pretty pastel card and Lisa’s gorgeous Spring-fresh card reminded us to send more happy mail just because!
In May, we released our Stamp Your Story catalog, and all sorts of excitement began. Shari’s artistic, inky card captures the essence of this catalog perfectly. In June, Jennifer wowed us all with this fabulous stenciled card, perfect for any guy or gal who rocks!
Summer arrived, and with it vacations and travel, as showcased in Sally’s fun card from July which features more of our Stamp Your Story products. The greens of the Summer obviously affected our artists’ colour choices as Lucy’s fun crocodile card might imply.
And then our Holiday and Stamp Your Story Catalog was released and we became immersed in snowy scenes, Christmas trees and glitter. Sally’s peaceful Christmas card from September and Tami’s stunning, wintry holiday card inspired us to get going on our holiday creations, knowing that the holiday season seems to creeps up on us faster and faster each year!
Finally winter was upon us. In November, Kelly showed us how to decorate a gift with style, creating the stunning gift tag below. And this December saw the release of our 2014 Catalog, and Jennifer showed us how to rock the new stamps with her gorgeous rainbow friendship card.
And that’s it. What a year it has been! We want to say a big THANK YOU to every one of our wonderful blog readers who share, inspire and encourage us every day. Here’s to more fun and creativity in 2014!
