Video: Introducing Clearly Kelly!

Monday, December 15th, 2014


Hello there, it’s Kelly Purkey here to share something very special with you on this Monday morning! Hero Arts and I have been working on a new big & exciting project called Clearly Kelly! We’ve put together a product line filled with stamps, stencils, and other fun products all with the topic notch quality and heart that you’ve always loved from Hero Arts.

If we’re just meeting for the first time, I’m a scrapbooker who has worked in the industry for almost 10 years and have been lucky to be a part of amazing companies & teams in the industry. When I finally put down the scissors and stamps, I like to spend my time traveling, hanging out with friends, eating good food, and just relishing all of the small details in life that sometimes get missed. The Clearly Kelly line represents those parts of me and has been designed to help you document your own life, whether it is through scrapbook page, mini albums, pocket pages, or however you want to record your memories. We’ve also made sure that this product line helps keep things real - life can be full of challenges and growth spurts. It’s always been important to me to document the good along with the bad, and in this line you’ll find stamps and sentiments for both the sunny and rainy days.

(If you are having problems viewing the video above, please try watching it HERE on YouTube.)

I hope you enjoy your first look at the new Clearly Kelly products and there’s more to come! We’ll be sharing a look at how some of my friends have used the products to document their own lives and hopefully inspire you do to the same. Stay tuned.

Thanks, everyone!

Holiday Challenge Winners

Friday, November 21st, 2014


Hello, and welcome to the winners’ post for our Holiday Challenge. With over 350 stunning entries, this challenge proved to be a very popular one, and we had a really tough time judging. But, we had to choose winners… and here they are!

First up is the Mad About Metallics category, and our winner is Maria Doricheva. The stunning inked background, the gold embossed Tiny Stars, the way the eye is drawn perfectly to the nativity scene… everything about this card is perfection. We just love it!


Next is Yoonsun Hur, who entered this beautiful card in the White Out category. The softly watercolored Holiday Petals and Leaves look gorgeous set against a white background and the gold embossed sentiment is perfection.


For our Tag It category, the winner is Heather Doran. Heather adhered her beautiful Lattice Background stamped tag to a card, adding a stunningly lifelike Peace Poinsettia to which she added Crackle Accents. Head over to her blog to see an amazing close up photo. It really is incredible.


This striking card by Nicole Parmentier really caught our eye. We just love the way she has customised our Winter Sparkle Background. So clever! And a perfect winner for our Anything Goes category.


And finally, our random winner, chosen from all 362 entries… and it is Lai Yoke.

Congratulations to our five wonderful winners. Ladies, please contact us at with your address and phone number by Friday, November 28th, including your list of $40 worth of products. Please include “Holiday Challenge Winner” in the subject line.

Thank you to everyone who entered this time. We hope you have enjoyed getting a head start on your holiday cards!

Happy stamping,

New from OWH: Stencils and stamps and dies (oh my!)

Wednesday, October 15th, 2014

Hey there and a happy Wednesday to you! Today we are excited to bring you three fun new products that we’ve created in partnership with Operation Write Home.



That awesome Forest Stencil is the very first stencil in the Operation Write Home line. Want to see it put to amazing use? Check out this video that OWH’s own Sandy Allnock shared a few weeks ago. So cool! The adorable foxes make an appearance as well.

The two new Stamp & Cuts each include a 3×4-inch clear stamp set plus two dies. From foxes and arrows to versatile messages, these sets have it all and can be combined in all kinds of creative ways. Sandy created an interactive arrow pull tab card and an acetate forest card with the Stamp & Cut sets for a recent Hero Arts class.


The good news is these new items are ready to ship now! You can find them HERE in the Operation Write Home section of our online shop, along with a host of previously released OWH stamps and dies. Hero Arts donates 25% of the profits from the sale of these items to Operation Write Home. Thank you for helping us support this wonderful organization!
