The Craft & Hobby Association Show (CHA) has come and gone in Chicago. Sadly, I was not there. Sigh. But tidbits of news are flowing in and I want to share some of what I’ve found.
First is the Stamp & Emboss collection — background cling stamps that match Sizzix embossing folders. You stamp the image then slip it into an embossing folder, run it through your machine, and the image is raised! How cool is that? The Stamp & Emboss collection includes stylish Hero Arts designs such as Birds ‘n Trees, Silhouette Vines, Artistic Fern and Holly Background. An easy, fast way to add dimension to your stamping.
The other nifty new product is the Stamp & Die Cut collection. These cling stamps match Sizzix’s FrameLit cutting dies and make it super simple to cut out stamped images using a die cutting machine. Designs include frolicking reindeers, chairs and chandeliers, labels and tags, flowers and butterflies.
Here are some links to videos:
The Hero Arts-Sizzix products will ship in early September, the Hero Arts-BasicGrey lines will ship in early August and early October, and the Hero Arts-Studio Calico products ship Aug. 5. You can also check out the new Hero Arts catalog at http://www.heroarts.com
Spellbinders has also released several wonderful dies — come back later for a look!
