The Summer 2021 Catalog is HERE! Blog Hop + Giveaway!

May 20, 2021 Hero Arts

Today we are thrilled to introduce you to the Hero Arts 2021 Summer Catalog! There are over 50 new products in this release, including fun new Looking Glass Dies, and additions to our popular HeroScape, Color Layering and Hero Lifestyle lines. We are ready for some summertime fun in the craft room, and we're excited for you to see what's new!

The catalog itself is a gorgeous idea book - you can order a copy for yourself, or scroll through our flippable catalog here:

Many of our wonderful retailers are releasing these products today as well! If you have a favorite brick & mortar stamp store, give them a call and see if they have our summer products available. Not sure whether there's a store near you? We're also introducing a handy new feature on our website today - a Store Locator! Keep in mind, many of these fabulous stores will ship to you, or even do special orders!

Now let's take a look at one of the new products. Actually, it's a trio of products which work wonderfully together! Jayne created this first card using our Color Layering Strawberries. Ink up and layer the stamped images to create a realistic strawberry image that looks good enough to eat! There are coordinating Frame Cuts for this set as well.

Next is a card from Kelly. She used the Hero Florals Strawberries Line Art stamp set. This is a 3" x 4" stamp set featuring the outline of the strawberries. It can be used on its own, stamped and colored. Or it can add a black outline to the Color Layering Strawberries! It coordinates with the same Frame Cuts as well. Here, Kelly combined it with the new Floral Tile Stencil.

This third card from Jessica shows the single strawberry image included in the Hero Florals Strawberry Line Art set. She stamped and colored it repeatedly to create a fun background on her card.

Coincidentally, today is National Pick Strawberries Day. There's nothing like a ripe berry straight off the vine, but we must say, these delightful cards are just as sweet and sure to be enjoyed by whoever receives them!

Now let's hop and see what the amazing artists who are joining us today created! As you hop along, we encourage you to leave as many comments as possible (one per blog). We will give away THREE $50 gift cards, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, May 30th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

And finally, if you'd like to watch a live run-through of this wonderful release, join Libby tonight (Thursday, May 20) on our Hero Arts Facebook Page at 7pm Eastern/4pm Pacific for a Product Release Spotlight!
