We are SO excited to be a part of the 2012 Hero Arts Catalog Bloghop today – and we hope you’re getting excited about the new line coming out! If you haven’t hopped along to get here from Cristina’s blog, then go to the top of the hop,  you won’t want to miss one blog!

Operation Write Home is especially excited…because not one, not two, but THREE of the new clear stamp sets are a brand new partnership between HA and OWH! We suggested some concepts, some doodles, and some sentiments….and oh wow did the designers ROCK the stamp sets. You are going to want neeeeeed to pick them all up! Come back here tomorrow for our weekend vlog, and we’ll give you some of the backstory about how this wonderful partnership came to be.

If you’re new to Operation Write Home – we’re a nonprofit that has sent over a million blank handmade cards to deployed heroes so they can keep in touch with their families. Visit our website to see all the project details—come join us!

Hero Arts is giving away five prize packs – chosen from ALL of the blog hop comments received by midnight December 12th – leave some love on all the blogs to increase your chances to WIN!

Our blog team has some sneak peeks for you at the stamps—all three sets are fabulous!! Paula has rocked the Year Round Sentiments set (CL582) – this one has a LOT of sentiments, as well as some awesome stars and hearts! Paula added more to it – embossing (Provocraft Script embossing folder), and some ribbon and SHINE!


Marianne is showing off All the Time (CL584) – another great set with a lot of sentiments, including one of our heroes’ favorites – Miss You All the Time! Papers are by Cosmo Cricket, Material Girl and Garden Variety; Spellbinders’ Fancy Tag, and Marianne cut her circle on her Cricut using the George Cartridge.


Barb is also using the same set, All the Time (CL584)  – and showing you the other clock included in the set; it’s a little smaller and has a detailed border. Barb used We R Memory Keepers papers, and Spellbinders to diecut the heart and star, and wrapped it all up in some yummy bakers twine.

Sandy’s made a card today using Right at Home (CL583) – a house, fence, and other images and sentiments that our heroes will love to send home – and even some that families at home will love to send overseas to their deployed loved one! On this card, it’s all Graphic 45 designer papers, the ribbon is by May Arts, and the image is colored with Copic Markers. 
Yolanda’s card really shows off the all-day-long aspect of All the Time (CL584) – and pointing out that our heroes are missing their loved ones around the clock! How clever!
