How cute is this? This little frog prince is just waiting for his party to start! Love the new Friendly Flags clear set by Hero Arts featured here. Debi just stamped them onto patterned paper and cut out each flag. Tied string on the ends to make them look like they are hanging like little flag banners. So cute!

Let's Go For A Ride

Ready for a Joy Ride? That's the name of this new bicycle Hero Arts set used in this card made by Debi. Love the vintage simplicity of this card and how she stamped red onto kraft cardstock. Starting to like using kraft in place of white more often when making cards- especially vintage looking cards!

Only a few days left till Christmas... did you get all your shopping done yet? Well, if you haven't stopped by the store recently, you just might find some great deals on last minute Christmas gifts for all your crafty friends out there. If not, a gift certificate is always a perfect fit!

Deep Sea Love

Yes, we know its still Christmas time, but Valentine's Day is right around the corner, so Debi combined a couple of Hero Arts sets to make this cute Valentine's Day card or just to give your sweetheart anytime.

The fishys are from an older set called "Oceans of Joy" and the sentiment is from a new set called "Live Life". That set has very neat, graphics added to cute sentiments that you'll just want to add to your collection!

Distressed Delicate Leaf Clusters

Don't we all just love Distress Inks? Well, Debi used three different Distress Ink colors for this card. She simply used the same stamp and layered the colors over each other for a neat effect. The Thank You sentiment is an Island Scrapbooking custom laser cut, which makes card making so simple and easy. You can pick up Thank You, or other sentiments at the store to help you with all those thank you cards you'll need to make after Christmas.

Friend Definition

As you can see, Debi was busy making more samples with the new Hero Arts stamp sets that just arrived. Here she used the friend definition stamp from the new clear set called "Dictionary Greeting". It comes in a set of 4 stamps with definitions for friend, happy, thank, and hello. Very versatile and unique. Oh, and if you are wondering about that crochet flower accent... it was made by Don Barnes. Thanks Don!

Just a reminder that Christmas Eve is the deadline to turn in your Christmas Cards to be entered into our Christmas Card Contest! Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

A Hero Arts Thank You

Hi Everyone!

We had a lot of fun today at the Hero Arts Preview Party for the 2011 Catalog! We did a make 'n take for those who were interested (samples posted earlier) and customers received 20% off all Hero Arts stamps and other specials around the store.

Debi was busy making some samples with the new stamps. This new labels set is one that everyone seems to be interested in. Its called "Congrats" and comes with three different labels and 4 different sentiments. She also used another clear set called "Delicate Leaf Clusters", which she used to create her own background.

She made a bunch of new samples that we will be featuring on the blog over the next few days. If you want to see them up close along with the new stamp sets, stop on by soon!

Hero Arts Preview Party Today!

Hi Everyone!

Don't forget we are hosting a Hero Arts Preview Party today! There will be a free make 'n take and you will get to see some of the new stamps from the catalog.

Hope to see you there!

Hero Arts Preview Party On Saturday 12/18

Hi Everyone!

We are busy getting ready for the Hero Arts Preview Party on Saturday 12/18!! The new catalog and some of the new stamps have arrived and we are dying to share them with you!! But before we can show you all of the new stuff... thought we'd give you a peek at a couple of the stamps that will be featured in a free make 'n take on Saturday...

These cards were made with one wood block stamp (flowers) and a set of 3 clings and some embossing powder. Accents are made using the butterfly punch by MS crafts and crystals by Kaisercraft. A very simple card that you can use as a thank you after the holidays, or if you choose the other sentiments- can be used year round!

So stop by on Saturday to pick up your catalog and see all the new goodies. Also come say hi to me and do a free make 'n take of one of the cards above (or make up your own combination!). Don't forget that all of the new sets are on sale at 20% off on Preview Party day only. You can also pre-pay for any set in the catalog that did not arrive and get 20% off of those purchases. See you soon!
