Hero Arts at CHA Summer 2012






Before the doors to the CHA Summer show opened, we were honored to take a class sponsored by Hero Arts.  The oober talented group of Shari Carroll, Lisa Spangler, Sally Traidman and Julie Ebersole led us in creating cheerful holiday cards using some of the new Hero Arts Neon ink pads and holiday stamps.  Since I love stamping more than even ice cream, you must know that I had a really wonderful time getting my hands on the Hero Arts' new products!  Can you believe I was too busy stamping to get a picture of the stamp I am MOST excited about?  Snowball background...  I used it on every card!  Consider this my teaser...snowball shots coming soon :)  No pun intended ;)



The enormously popular existing neon line now holds Neon Green, Neon Blue, and Neon Purple.  And guess what!? You can preorder them at Simon now!  (shipping mid- August) I love how Hero Arts is incorporating Neon into holiday cards this year.  The pumpkin below couldn't be any brighter!  If you love Neon like I love Neon, be sure to check out Lisa Spangler's blog.  Her work is a must see and you will LOVE it!






Along with Hero's new releases comes the addition of some spectacular colors to the mid-tone ink line developed by Shari Carroll.  Stay tuned because later in the month we will feature a video with Shari telling us more about the Mid-tone line.  AND we hope to have some surprises for you using the new Hero Arts Sizzix dies.  There is a snowman who can be paper pieced together after stamping and die cutting that will knock your socks off!




Have you tried neon ink yet?  If not, I double dog dare you....cuz you are gonna LOVE 'em!  Comment below to let us know what you think of neon and one lucky winner will receive a variety pack of Hero Arts clear stamps.

By the way, we have just received some NEW Hero Arts / Basic Grey collaboration stamps.  Check out what's new for Summer 2012 HERE.

Have a great weekend!

In stamping fun,
Heidi

  35. WOW Neon colors are just soooo cool, and I can´t wait to get some of these, and they´re some awesome colors too, I can see. Some years ago we used lots of neon on lots of things, and I was really sad, when we suddenly couldn´t get them anymore, so I´m one happy bunny here, who can´t wait to get them back again. And some really awesome ideas shown here too, really cool.
