The 2023 Spring Catalog Blog Hop + Giveaway!
Hello friends! Today is the culmination of several months of hard work here at Hero HQ - the day our beautiful new Spring 2023 Catalog launches in our online store, and at participating retailers. The release is packed full of new stamps, dies, stencils, hot foil plates and more! At the bottom of this post you're invited to join our blog hop, where our Creative Team and several talented friends are sharing creations made with this release. We're also introducing our next Stamp-Along!
But before we move on, let's talk catalogs. If you are familiar with the Hero Arts catalogs, you know they are always stunningly gorgeous idea books featuring new products, older favorites, and beautiful card samples. In the back of the catalog are all of the accessories - inks, cardstocks, watercolors, pastes, etc. With this Spring Catalog we've changed it up a bit. All of those amazing "back of the catalog" items now exist in their own catalog, which we are calling Creative Essentials! The Creative Essentials catalog is a PDF that you can download and flip through, but it is not a printed catalog available for purchase. BUT - it does include some wonderful new additions, which you can see in our website collection!
We've put together this overview video to walk through the entire release, including both catalogs. Watch below, or on YouTube.
We're also super excited to announce that our next Stamp-Along event will be April 14-16! Registration opens today, with early bird pricing just $45 - which is frankly a steal for ten inspiration-packed classes. The line-up of teachers is incredible - we are going to have so much fun! And new for this event - all classes will be streamed on YouTube rather than Facebook. We will still have a private Facebook group for community building and sharing, but it is not required for attending the event!
We also have a bundle of the main products the Stamp-Along teachers will be using available for purchase - at a fabulous 15% discount!
There just so much goodness happening today, we are giddy with excitement! But before we get to the main hop, let's take a look at inspiration from a couple of our artists. First, a card from Jayne Nelson featuring the gorgeous floral stamp set called The Sweetest. The background is a new versatile cling stamp that will be a go-to for so many subtle backgrounds as well as a winner for mixed media projects - Burlap Bold Prints.
The next card from Kelly Rasmussen features one of three new floral die sets that build gorgeous, realistic blooms. This one is Pansy Fancy Die, and we love how she paired it with Gold Hero Paste through the Petal Burst Stencil. Other die sets are Daffodil Fancy Dies and Lily of the Valley Fancy Dies. The card is completed with a sentiment from Friendly Messages, a stamp and die bundle that is packed full of useful messages and is sure to become a staple in your stash!
This third card is also from Kelly, and features the Honeycomb Hot Foil Plate. The hexagon pattern is the perfect backdrop, not only for our many bee-themed products, but for all sorts of project designs! Kelly paired it with a gorgeous new woodblock stamp called Bee and Floral, which is one of four new woodblock offerings in this release.
Now it's time to hop! Let's see what the artists are sharing with us today. We'll be giving away two $50 gift cards, drawn from the comments left along the hop. Comment on all the blogs for more chances to win! You have until Sunday, February 26 at 11:59pm to enter. The winners will be announced here on the Hero Arts blog.
