Hero Arts Holiday 2021 Release Blog Hop

Welcome everyone ! It’s the fabulous time of year when we share with you the Hero Arts Holiday release! So many amazing products!


When you place a $50 order or more you get a FREE printed catalog! Let me tell you, nothing is better then a real copy in your hands. This special is good through the end of the month or while supplies last.

First, let’s take a look at the new Coloring Layering Robin. I love Hero’s color layering images. They are so realistic looking!

I also paired it with some elements die cut from vellum using the Envelope Accessories and enamel dots.

We can’t have a Christmas release without some beautiful ornaments. Here I’m using the Holiday Ornaments Bundle along with Layering Ornaments Stencil.

I’m not ready for cold weather but boy do I love snowflakes! Check out the gorgeous new Coloring Layering Snowflakes! I stamped, die cut and layering my image and created a shaker card. I’m totally obsessed with shaker cards!

I also watercolored a background and did some random stamping in the background with the individual snowflake images.

I love that you can either use these images together for a layered look or individually.

Are you loving the Looking Glass series from Hero Arts? I am! I’ve been meaning to do a video on them and hopefully I will soon!

We have quite a few of them in the Winter catalog. I fell in love with the Looking Glass Winter Forest.

I added some light ink blending to the background and carefully ink blended the deer with a soft brown ink.

The sentiment comes from the new Christmas Robins stamp set.

We also have Looking Glass Ornaments which I went with non-traditional colors this time.

This fantastic Season’s Greetings sentiment comes from the Merry Snowmen set.

Here’s a simple card that would be easy to mass produce. This is using the Large Snowflakes & Swirls Die paired with the Christmas Holidays Stamp & Cut XL die cut from Silver Glitter cardstock.

Did you see Hero is releasing glitter cardstock?? Yippee!!!

I have another quick and easy card featuring the Poinsettia Pattern Stencil and Christmas Holidays Stamp & Cut XL.

Whew! That was a ton of fun and I hope it has inspired you to check out the amazing new products! There is still a ton left to check out.

And one more thing … did you see the news??? We are having a Hero Holiday Stamp – Along Virtual Event! Yours truly will be one of the instructors. Head over to the Hero Arts Blog HERE to sign up!
