The 2012 Catalog Blog Hop Starts Here!


Hello and welcome to the Hero Arts 2012 Catalog Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here!

This is the first of 20 stops on the hop that will give you inspiring previews of brand-new-for-2012 clear, cling, and woodblock stamps. The new stamps debut at Hero Arts Catalog Preview Parties around the world starting tomorrow, December 10th, continuing through January 5th when the new catalog is released! Wondering if there’s a Preview Party near you? Visit our party page for a list of locations. (P.S. — Don’t forget your camera. There’s a Catalog Debut Photo Contest with BIG prizes!)

So, are you ready to sample some 2012 Catalog goodness? Let’s hop right to it!

Our own Hero Artist Sally Traidman is here to get the party started. Sally says, “I am honored to be kicking off the hop with one of my favorite new clear sets, CL586 XO. The giant XOXO was one that I requested since I am always sending off giant ‘hugs’ cards! Of course, I could not pass up my signature pink and orange! I used our new bright ‘Bubblegum’ pad and our Poppy Chalk Ink.”


“I could easily use this set about 12 different ways, but today we only have time for one! The large XO looks great stamped tone on tone on envelopes too!”

Did you catch that hint about new inkpads? We’re so excited about them! “Bubblegum” is just the tip of the iceberg — there are more great colors coming your way that you’ll be seeing very soon!

Before you hop off to see the rest of the blogs, let’s talk about PRIZES!!
