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!

Check this post for the latest monthly challenge information.

Your entry can be scanned or photographed, it’s up to you. Feel free to post more than one view of your project, however, each view will be counted as the same entry. Enter as many projects as you wish. Good luck and have fun!

Q: What are your terms of use, privacy and copyright policies?

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!

Q: What will I find on the blog?

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 have clicked and placed numerous items on my Wish List. I do not know how to transfer that to my Shopping Cart. I also wanted the newest set featured (Birds and Branches) and could not locate it - other than the example sent this week.
    Thanks, Please help. I love your website.

    I see things in the blog and try to order them but only am able to put it into my wish listing. Can I order the items on my wish list online like I do the rest of your products or do I have to go to a different site to do that?
