Hero Arts 2012 Catalog Releases Available NOW!

Hi Folks!

I have some exciting news that just puts me OVER THE MOON with delight:

The Hero Arts 2012 Catalog is here! We received an early shipment of most of the items in the new catalog. You can purchase the catalog HERE. The rest of the items are anticipated to arrive in about 2 weeks. The catalog is loaded with not only new stamps, but new wafer thin die Frame Cuts, dies with coordinating stamp sets, embossing folders with coordinating stamps, new colors - splash anyone?, new "Art of the Card" Cling stamp sets, new clear sets like "You and Me" and more! I cannot wait to see the highly anticipated MID- TONE ink pads designed by color guru Shari Carroll!


You can find EVERYTHING in the new 2012 Catalog HERE.

You can find NEW 2012 Releases HERE.

It's really hard to pick a favorite, but if I absolutely had to, my favorite would be this new Le Journal Cling Stamp Set. It is from the line called "Art of the Card", a themed collection that is richly artistic. These cling sets with silkscreened tops radiate style and playfulness.

Le journal set has shape, texture, style, versatility and elegance.

The new catalog is chock full of ideas and new products. There is a new Wafer Thin line of dies called FRAME CUTS. You can use a Frame cut die to coordinate with many of the newly released stamps. For example, my favorite set would coordinate the scallop of the D1002 Scallop frame Wafer Thin Die Cuts.



The scallop die from the above set would also coordinate beautifully with the stamp set called Untitled Key.


Below is a clear set called "Special Time". At just $14.99 I think it's the best value of all. It is perfect for card makers, scrapbookers, journal artists, and more. Versatility baby - gotta love that!
Hero Arts' clear stamps are made in the United States and offer the ability to obtain precise placement from your stamp.

OH WAIT! BEFORE I go.... I just found another favorite set. Check this cutie pie out: " A Little Note" clear stamp set. Yes, I have to have this one, stat!



If you order some items that are on preorder, your entire order will be held until the preorder items arrive. If you want in stock items quickly, please be sure to place them on a separate order. Don't forget our amazing shipping rates are still in full force! You could qualify for FREE SHIPPING. See the chart below :)



Oh, and just one more thing... a little birdie told me that Jennifer Mcguire has picked some of her favorites from the 2012 catalog and listed them on her blog (along with a special little coupon and giveaway for you to use!)...check Jennifer's blog out HERE.

  16. I cannot narrow my favourites down to just a few stamps, it's impossible - there are so many of them that are calling my name, lol. I love all of the Art of the Cards stamp sets. Then there are those stamps with the newsprint background like the London and Eiffel Tower. I need to win a lottery, then I could just get them all and never mind having to decide which would be nice to get first, lol.
