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!
