2018 Summer Catalog Sneak Peeks: Day 1

by Hero Arts April 18, 2018 172 Comments

Hello and welcome to the first day of 2018 Summer Catalog sneak peeks! We're so excited to share peeks and giveaways with you today and tomorrow, leading up to the full catalog reveal this Friday, April 20. The theme for today is one that many stampers will enjoy -- flowers!

Hero Florals™ is a new collection of flower stamps and dies that offer a garden of creativity. To round out our selection of classic flowers in wood, clear, cling, and stencils, we've added new sizes and formats: 3" x 4" clear and Stamp & Cut sets.

Some flower stamps that were previously designed as woodblocks are now available in these new formats. And that brings us to this beautiful card made by Creative Team member Clare Prezzia...

Hero Florals Mum Stamp & Cut (DC235) is one of four new floral Stamp & Cut offerings in our Summer collection. It includes one mum image, three sentiments, and a coordinating Frame Cut die to cut out the flower. Everything you need in one affordable package! This statement-making mum may look familiar, as it is currently available as a large woodblock stamp. We've scaled the size down slightly to bring it to you in clear. Do you spy anything else new on this card? Clare used our new Gold Glitter Embossing Powder (PW123) to add a gorgeous sparkling touch. It's one of two new embossing powders that we're excited to share with you!

Next up, more beautiful blossoms that are perfect for coloring, featured on this bright and happy card from Creative Team member Ilina Crouse...

Say hello to Blossoms for Coloring (CM255)! This 4" x 6" clear stamp set is filled with flowers and leaves galore that you'll be able to mix and match to create a wide range of looks, from clean and simple to full bouquets. In addition to the 16 line art images included in the set, coordinating Frame Cut dies are available separately. If you were wondering about the background on Ilina's card, you guessed it...that's new too! It's a 6" x 6" cling background called Blossoms for Coloring Bold Prints (CG735), and it pairs perfectly with the Blossoms for Coloring clear set.

GIVEAWAY: Leave a comment on this post and we will randomly select a winner from the comments to receive a $20 gift certificate to the Hero Arts Online Store! Please comment by Sunday, April 22 at 11:59pm PT, and we’ll announce the winner the following week.

Look for Summer Catalog products to start shipping to your favorite retailers towards the end of this month, and in the Hero Arts Online Store on May 16. If your favorite retailer doesn’t carry Hero Arts, be sure to let them know that you’d like them to!

We’ll be back tomorrow with another look at the new collection, and another giveaway. See you then!

Hi Mary W – The flowers that are being released as 3″ × 4″ clear sets are the same size as their wood counterparts. The dies will work with both. The flowers that are being release as Stamp & Cut sets are slightly smaller than their wood counterparts, so the dies would be different sizes. Hope that helps!

GORGEOUS Florals!!!! I am ALWAYS LOOKING FOR Floral Stamps! They just make my heart pitter-patter! There is NOTHING MORE BEAUTIFUL than a Floral card! Floral stamps can be used in so many ways, other than cards too…. Mixed Media…. I think it would be an EXCELLENT IDEA to create a Floral Kit for us!!!!! I ADORE “realistic” florals!!! Not the blobby type or cartoon looking florals. A Realistic Floral Kit would be a kit I would buy & use for years to come!!!! A "CLASSIC! " ;) HOPE SOMEONE is listening!!!! ;)
