Hero Arts New Release... Stamp Your Story! + GIVEAWAY!

Hey everyone... I'm revealing some new stamps from the Hero Arts release called Stamp Your Story! How exciting!!!! Retailers across the nation (and world) will be showing this new line of stamps this morning. I also have a technique article HERE showing some of the new products... including the INK DAUBERS!!! Gahhh!!! I'm in LOVE!!!

To start off I have a sweet clean and simple card using two new MID-TONE inks!!!  Let me introduce you to Mint Julep and Fresh Peach.


Delicious... aren't they? Now I've got to tell you... The circle thingys in the background are the same color as the house, they are "fresher" so haven't quite lightened up yet.


Next I'll show you my new addiction.... INK DAUBERS!!! These are so fun and the colors (yep I picked them) are some of my favorites!  They come in Pale Tomato, Butter Bar, Field Greens, Tide Pool, Wet Cement and Cup O'Joe!  If you're inclined to go with the brighter colors... six neon Daubers are also in the line up.

For now I'll hold you hostage to my favorite combination. I've used Tide Pool, Wet Cement and Cup O'Joe.

See the grid in the background??? It's a Hero Arts STENCIL!!!!

Fun stuff... something for everyone!

So now for the GIVEAWAY part... I have an extra fabulous background stamp "Painted Canvas" that seems to have come home with me from my recent class.  I am willing to part with it if you all can leave me a comment here on this post.  I'd like you to take the time to look through the catalog HERE and let me know what you think of this new adventure in stamping.  Please comment by 11:59pm (CST) Friday evening, May 3rd.  Good luck to you all!!!

Enjoy your day!

I just took a look at the newest catalog and love all stamps that can use in my Project Life scrapbook. Love all the background stamps too which I can also use in cardmaking....AND the stencils I could go on an on. Thanks for the chance to win.

Kelly said...

Love the blots esp how you use them so beautifully on the second card. The arrows caught my eye in the catalog.

Christine Nixon said...

Every year I think that the latest HA catalog is my favorite one and every year they top themselves. This one made me actually gasp - there are so many delicious stamps and I love those stencils and daubers. So much eye candy to be excited about. Thanks for the preview!

Anne said...

Love the new alphabet stamps...Letters on pg. 6 and the Notebook alpha. Looks like products are designed for every interest i.e., art journaling, PL, scrapbooking and card making. I haven't been a big fan of the neon colors, BUT LOVE them in the ink daubers!

Cheri Reed said...

WOW! Love the stencils, stamps, inks, daubers. Great selection.

Donna Lange said...

That Tide Pool and Wet Cement are awesome together. Like the woodblock background stamps and the stencils. I recently bought all the neon colors and am loving those. I believe I will have to find a second job in order to support my art supply habit!

Sue McRae said...

Lots of fun products in the new catalog. I am loving the stencils, ink daubers and Brushed Frame stamp.

snappy scrappy said...

So pretty!

Barb said...

My first reaction was a cautious one - wondering if Hero Arts was getting more into art journaling and scrapbooking and getting away from cardmaking - but after looking at the new catalog, I'm excited!

I love the Remember, Brush Strokes and My Notebook cling sets! I also love the Texture and Shape, the Paint Print and the Brushed Flowers woodblock stamps!

And I'm so glad Hero Arts is offering stencils now too, Shari! After watching your amazing videos of art journaling, I have been slowly gathering supplies to give it a try. I think it would be fun to begin this new adventure of mixed media on a smaller scale like a card, and these new products and stamps are perfect for it!

Thanks for the chance to win a new stamp! :)

Dana D. said...

The new catalog is terrific, so are your cards. Love the new colors of ink and all the splat stamps and I'm crazy for stencils.

LSmith said...

I love the look of dripping paint! I going to love the new stamps!

Laura Jane said...

Oh YES!! I'm still GEEKING out about it! LOVE the art journal FREE form feel of the new items! REMEBER ac028 is on my wishlist as well as the stencils.

So much to play with and CREATE so many new LAYERS!!
So EXCITED!!

I'm really loving this new catalog! Love the daubers, stencils, great brush strokes stamps.....I'm basically a card maker but after watching your Art Journaling videos, I wonder if I can do it. Great technique video. Especially love the nontraditional stencil technique. Thanks for the great video.

Jane White said...

I like the background stamp that looks like the edges of a big dauber.

Carol McCready said...

Melinda Ferraz said...

Loving the new items in the catalog!! Must have the Brush strokes stamp set.

Jamie said...

I LOVE this release! Gotta have the mint and peach ink as well as the Jar frame cut to go with the stamp set I already own. As for stamps there are so may really cool ones!

arlsmom aka Lynda said...

The new catalog is amazing...love all the new items...such wonderful inspiration!

Sarah Thomson said...

The technique with the stencil is just lovely. I'd never have thought of using it that way round but it is so effective I might have to give it a try. When will the stamps be available to buy?

Janet a.k.a. swanlady21 said...

I'm so excited by the new products .... you started my interest with your art journalling videos. I'm so ready to start. I've been hovering around for the last couple of months (but also gathering the art supplies - the Brush Strokes is on my wish list). May give it a go this week.

Tricia said...

I just looked through the catalog and I'll take one of each!! What a wonderful collection of new products! I love the theme stamps like Travel and Remember - and the new ink colors of Mint Julep and Fresh Peach - delightful! I'll be ordering these new stamps for my classes this summer!

CinnamonSally said...

The daubers look amazing, I really want to give them a try , as a card maker only the stamps look like a challenge but i am sure I will be tempted!

Judy said...

I love the look, and am so addicted to stamping it hurts. My craft room is overflowing and I still want more. Love Hero Arts stamps and products. I love the "Watch it Wednesdays", and love learning new techniques. Thank you so very much.

Amy#8546(TheTigersHaven) said...

This is so pretty and the catalog is AWESOME!!! I love all the new stamps and other items. Mixed media feel to alot of them and I am loving it. I love that not so perfect smear across your page or card becomes so perfect for the outcome, so these stamps are great. All of them are on my wish list now.

Dixie Cochran said...

I think this may be the best Hero Arts catalog ever! So many new directions with this one! Looks like I need to start an art journal. I was happy to see new HA/OWH sets too!

Nithya Sakthirajan said...

I just love everything in this catalog..
Esp the Texture and Shape, the Paint Print stamps..
My wishlist grew pretty long in a matter of hours :-)

Wonderfully artsy yumminess in this new catalog - I love all of the brush stroke images and the stencils, too!

Marlou McAlees said...

Barbara said...

I love the "artsy" look of the designs in the new catalog and think it is a perfect compliment to the Hero Arts line of stamps! There is definitely something for everyone and I have my eye on several for future purchase. Thanks for a chance to win one of the stamps!!!!

Sabrina said...

Oh I think it is wonderful and so many stamps and dies and stencils to choose from! I would be in Hero Arts Heaven if I had on a third of those. I am just beginning my collection of Hero Arts!!

SAWillShop said...

I always love Hero Arts background stamps...in my opinion, no one can touch them when it comes to background stamps...I will be scouring the earth to find that Map of America background (hopefully I don't have to look that far though). Also love the travel stamps on the first page. I'm so glad they are still making plenty of wood block and cling stamps too...I like clear stamps for some things, but nothing beats ink off of rubber. Thanks so much for the look at the new catalog and the chance to win!

Carol Ann Ater said...

Well, I already know my new loves-can't-wait-to-enjoy stamps. loved the traveler set of stamps but the Stencils really grabbed me. I have to go back and drool some more....I'm certain my wish list will be long.

Barb Ghig said...

So funny that you called the new ink colors "Delicious"...that's exactly what I thought when I saw your card!
The new catalog is amazing...where do I start? I would have to say the 2 new ink colors and the stencils are my fave! In fact, I can't wait to get my hands on them!
Thanks so much for sharing your gorgeous cards with us, Shari...and for a chance to win the Painted Canvas stamp!

Jeanie said...

Oh my! So many things to love. I'm loving the brushed frame stamp, the daubers, the stencils, the new inks, the travel stamps, some of the wood stamp sets . . . I'd better start saving my dollars!

Anonymous said...

Wow...cool colors and so many fun things to learn. Thanks. I truly love your mixed media pieces....keep on teaching us!!

Laura Turcotte said...

I love the new colours that you used - swoon! The catalogue is amazing and was worth the wait. I wonder how long before we can get a few of the items in New Zealand? I wish I lived in the USA so I could access the entire range!

Gladys Cravitz said...

Looking through the catalog - loving the new products, so many great stamps. As always I get a bad case of the wants. Love your blog, your ideas are always inspiring. Makes me wish I could run to my craft room and get busy. Thanks for all you share!

Froggietalks said...

I am loving the new Mint and Peach inks, but since I am not a scrapbooker, sadly, many of the stamp sets I don't see myself using. There are a few nice ones, like the painted flower, and there was the Mother's Day and Father's day stamp sets that I can see myself using.

Thanks for the chance to win :)

Vickster said...

I like the painterly effects of many of the stamps. I like to work in art journals, so these are right up my alley...:) Have a great day!
