Frequently Asked Questions


This wise owl is here to help answer your most frequently asked questions.

Q: Did I hear something about contests?

A: Yes you did! We will have ongoing contests, including:

  • Month-long contests based around a creative monthly theme. We will announce winners in TWO groups, so you have twice the opportunities to win. Fourteen $50 shopping sprees to our Online Store will be given away each month! For full contest details, a handy calendar, and prize information, click HERE.
  • Monthly $100 Wish List “Shopping Sprees” for HeroClub members, chosen randomly from comments made on the blog during the month.
  • Winners drawn at random. Every once in a while we will randomly select people from the comments section to receive a collection of Hero Arts products. The more comments you leave, the greater your chances of winning.

International stampers are more than welcome to join in the fun!

Q: Tell me more about the Monthly Challenges!

A: You can find those details HERE. There are also links to the policies in the “Legal Stuff” footer at

Q: Does this blog have an RSS feed?

A: Yes! Just click the link to add it as a bookmark in your web browser. If you are using a feed reader or other RSS client, here is the URL that you will need to cut-and-paste:

An RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feed is not meant for people, it’s meant for computer programs. So if your browser does not support adding RSS bookmarks via the click it will look very strange!

A: We hope you will find many stamping ideas to inspire you. Here’s what a typical week will look like:

  • Motivation Mondays. An idea for the week.
  • Take Two Tuesdays. A creative technique built around the weekly idea that was presented Monday.
  • Watch It Wednesdays. Step-By-Step pictures or video sparked by the weekly idea.
  • You’re Talented Thursdays. We will highlight winning contest entries and work from our talented community members.
  • For Fun Fridays. The Hero Artists will offer creative ideas for a weekend full of stamping.

    I was at a cardmaking class at the local Archivers, using some cute Hero Arts stamps, and met a lady who says she has won several neat gifts from the Hero Arts website. She told me where and how to get going, and I feel like I’ve discovered a papercrafter’s “Utopia”. I will be back many times.

    I use to receive your card of the month but I changed my email address and forgot to change it with you. My friend sent me and email about Hero Arts and it reminded me, Hay, I’m not getting my card of the month. So, here I am. I think I like having all of the contests, cards and ideas available to men not just the card of the month. Thanks to my friend for her email, and thanks to you for such wonderful contests and ideas.

    Can I stamp in white with any brand of white embossing powder and versamark ink? I tried embossing with a pearl white powder but the result was like tone on tone.

    Best wishes

    This is one website I really look forward to every day. You have ideas galore plus I get to view so much of the card talent there is out there. I’ve purchased several of the Hero Arts stamps over the years, and because of this website, I have been able to come up with new ideas for using these stamps.

    Thank you,
    Colleen Hartel

    I so much look forward to Monday’s when I get my hero arts blog and inspirations of all the artists, new ideas and blogs. Life sometimes is way too busy when working and stamping at night time (mental therapy) and can’t get to all the websites all the time, but on Monday’s especially I will always take time to go threw Hero for inspiration. Keep up the great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
