Day 2 of Holiday Catalog Peeks (+ Giveaway!)

Aug 23, 2022 Hero Arts

Welcome back to our 2022 Handmade for the Holidays Catalog sneak peeks! We can hardly wait for tomorrow, when we'll be able to share ALL of the goodness with you! Wednesday's catalog launch and blog hop will begin right here at 10am PT. We hope you can join us! The participating artists have outdone themselves and will be sprinkling their creative magic all around – get ready to be inspired and maybe even begin planning your holiday projects!

First things first. How about a few more sneak peeks? If the jump to holiday cardmaking seems sudden, we are here to bridge the gap for you. There's just something special about autumn and there's no denying the season can inspire some wonderful projects. Like these...

The beautiful thank you card at left features one of our favorite new clear stamps for fall that we know will become one of your seasonal go-tos – Grateful Pumpkin (CM638). Celebrate the beauty of fall with this terrific set featuring a large pumpkin, fall foliage, a mushroom, acorn, and two sentiments. It includes everything you need to bring autumn's beauty to your cards and projects. (We're thinking a pumpkin decorating party invitation would be so much fun!)

Next up is an adorable 3" x 4" clear set that's sure to warm your heart. Meet Little Buddy (CM653)! Enjoy coloring the line art images depicting a sweet squirrel and acorns, plus coordinating messages.

Our fourth and final peek is all about bold messages and Bold Prints backgrounds...

Both of these eye-catching cards feature new Foil & Cut sets. We are offering Hot Foil Plates in individual designs (as shown yesterday) and also as Foil & Cut sets that include a Hot Foil Plate and a coordinating Frame Cut die packaged together. The two showcased here? Left: Happy Holidays Foil & Cut (HC103) and Merry Christmas Foil & Cut (HC101). Our Creative Team created so many gorgeous card samples with these Foil & Cuts sets – just wait until you flip through the pages of the catalog tomorrow! And we cannot wait to see what YOU make with them. 

Do you love Bold Prints background stamps? We've got you covered with new designs that are versatile enough to use season after season with different techniques! Featured on both cards above is the new Lacy Snowflakes Bold Prints (CG880).

GIVEAWAY TIME! Leave a comment on this post and we will randomly select one winner to receive a $25 gift card to the Hero Arts online shop! Please comment by Sunday, August 28 at 11:59pm PT.

Only one day stands between you and the availability of all of these wonderful new holiday products. Look for our 2022 Handmade for the Holidays Catalog products at your favorite retailers and in the Hero Arts shop tomorrow, August 24.

Have a wonderful day and we’ll see you tomorrow for the reveal and launch of the new catalog. Did we mention the big blog hop and more giveaways? We can't wait to celebrate with you!!

Thanks so much for joining us,

Fond of the pumpkins but not squirrels (which I call squirvells since they are destructive & annoying, they like to taunt my dogs & I). Not tried hot foiling. Can the hot foiling items be used without a hot foiler? Like bold prints and have a collection of several Hero Arts even one that is not full 6″ × 6″ from early days.

Lovely projects! That little squirrel with the acorns is so cute and so detailed.

re this: "Do you love Bold Prints background stamps? " Why, yes! Yes I do! :)

You remind me that I used to have a massive bunch of Hero Arts wood-mounted background stamps (and of course, other stamps, too) back in the day. How I miss them!

I made the sad, hard decision to get rid of them all when I moved aboard a sailboat in 2009 and went sailing…which was a fantastic adventure that I wouldn’t want to have missed. But it does still make me sad to think about all the beautiful craft supplies I gave up when I made that decision. I sure am glad y’all are still around making lovely stamps and supplies for us all to enjoy.

Thanks for the sneak peeks. I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the new collection.
