CHA Summer 2011 | Hero Arts

Reported by Simone Collins

Hero Arts is a powerhouse when it comes to rubber stamping. Their strong designs and long standing relationship with crafters makes them a force to be reckoned with in the craft industry. Making them even stronger are the partnerships they’ve made with some paper companies. Their Basic Grey collaboration started back in January and is going strong with 20 new stamp sets released at CHA this summer. With everything from florals to holiday themes, these designs are a great accompaniment to the Basic Grey 6″x6″ paper pads.

Hero Arts also released their own designs in all the holiday themes.

And let’s not forget their new partnership with Sizzix to bring you Framelits and Stamp and Emboss sets which combine what you love about Hero and Sizzix together.
The Stamp and Emboss sets include a large background set and coordinating embossing folder.
Here’s a quick look at how they work. (click to enlarge)

And their newest partnership with Studio Calico has everyone cheering. With six new sets and two background stamps, these new designs are classy and simple, perfect for a wide array of crafts.

Are you a stamper? Love the new Hero Arts products? What kind of stamps do you prefer, wood-mounted, cling, clear?

CHA Tools: Ten Seconds Studio

Reported by Anam Stubbington

We loved the booth that Ten Seconds Studio designed to display all their stunning artwork. It was one of the best of the whole show with so much texture and visual stimulation!
Ten Seconds Studio introduced several new mold designs including the Big Daddy and Kabuka molds.  They are double-sided and so versatile. They also released four new colors of foil.
The detail possible with the plates and foils is just stunning.

The New Alphabet stamp set is a beautiful calligraphic one and goes so well with the current phrase stamps they also have available – made in heavy rubber they are perfect for embossing work, never mind just for regular stamping.

The Artwork in the booth was gorgeous – everything from altered art, Home Décor, cards and layouts to jewelery.

Ten Seconds Studio have added some amazing versatile products to their range of cool products.
