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: How do I use the Hero Arts Flickr Group?

A: It’s easy! If you’re not a Flickr member already, you’ll need to create an account. Once you become a member, just go to the Hero Arts Flickr Group and click on “Join this group” in the upper right corner. After you’ve joined the group you can share your photos by clicking the “Send to Group” icon in the photo view and then selecting Hero Arts, like so:

For further Flickr questions, please visit their help section or help forum.

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 heroarts.com.

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:

http://heroarts.com/blogs/club/feed/

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.

Q: How do I post a comment?

A: From the post that you would like to leave a comment on, scroll down to the end and then click on the “Comments>>” link. Next, scroll down until you see the comment form. Fill in your name, email address and the comment, then click on “Submit Comment”. At this point your comment will be in our queue awaiting moderation. A Hero Artist will approve your message and then it will be published. Rest assured that once you have submitted your comment, we have received it!

Q: How do I add a Hero Arts blinkie to my blog?

A: How you add the blinkie to your blog will depend upon your blog software. (Typepad, Blogger, WordPress, etc.) We have some links to instructions for various blogs on the post HERE. Also check this post from our Flickr discussion area, which contains lots of helpful tips!

Q: Where can I purchase Hero Arts products?

    Anne,

    Tomorrow morning Jennifer McGuire is going to kick off the blog with an idea for the week, which will serve as the theme for her next 5 days of posts and the subject of the weekly contest. Maybe have your guests all work on the contest challenge! Tune in tomorrow and see if you like the idea. :)

    I’m so stoked about this - with work I don’t get much time to stamp during the day (when most of my friends are stamping) so having something like this keeps me in the loop and goes a long way to reducing my feelings of isolation! Thank you so much.

    dawna said:

    Hoo-RAY!!! Goof for you! I’ve been a Hero fan for a long time. I always thought this company was on the cutting edge of the stamping industry, being right on top of, and often starting the newest trends. (I thought he shadow stamps were brilliant when they first came out, and so did everyone else, apparently!)
    Congrats on the new blog, and I will be here often.
    Thanks, too for making the contest entry time run an entire week. My stamping time is tight, and frequently can’t get a challenge in for several days.

    I was excited to learn of the new Hero Arts blog when I opened my email this morning! I absolutely love the quality and designs of the Hero Arts stamps. I am looking forward to learning more techniques and gaining inspiration from the exchange of ideas. Thanks for a great product!

  49. 49


    Teresa said:

    What a great idea, I love your designs particularly the clear unmounted ones, With them I have more room for more stamps (without my husband noticing) and can easily place them exactly as I wish. My favourite of the momnt is CL 149 flowers and borders which is so versatile. Thank you

    Joan Benoit said:

    This is a great blog. Good ideas to take people to their thinking about creativity on cards and scrapbooks. I have taken a couple of classes with Jennifer and love the enthusiasm and ideas she has. Always a pleasure being at her classes. I probably would have to say that two of the Christmas stamps are my favorite because that is when I do a LOT of cards at one time. Warmest Wishes is one of my favorites because I LOVE the cute little snowman-so much you could do with him. And thie Merry Christmas collage is also versatile in so many ways. Love Hero Arts and their versatility.

    Thanks So much and congratulations on your new addition!!!

    Danielle said:

    I adore Hero Arts and was so excited to find the online store, sometimes I wish there were a few more products because I enjoy the store even more than my closest retail seller. I love the card kits and have bought more than a fair share. I’m looking forward to some kits with the newer stamps like the Design Blocks.
    I don’t think I could narrow down a favorite stamp, I’m a flourish addict so any of those.
    My mom and I are weekend cardmakers and try to do 40 or so to give to friends every weekend she visits.
    I am very excited to see how the blog progresses, I think this will be a daily stop for me.
    I’ve never done a clear card, it might be something I try for the challenge this week.

    Imagination overload!

    Karen Reynolds said:

    Wonderful news! Looking forward to inspiration from the countless Hero Arts addicts out there! I started stamping 10 years ago with a handful of Hero Arts stamps, and now I have a craft room dedicated to my obsession with stamping! So hard to pick a favorite, but if I had to look back (a long time ago) I have always love the Garden Girl, and a Real Flower Drooping. I simply adore the Clear Set - Happy Everything (CL066) and have made countless cards with this set. Just purchased Long Branch and Owl last week…………ooooooooooh, I feel my stamping mojo stirring……….gotta go stamp………

    I love Hero Arts and the fact that you are always coming up with something new and provide great materials and instruction for ways and to use the materials. There are so many Hero Arts stamps that I love, but right now, I think I love the Collage Take Time stamp featuring the Eiffel Tower. It’s so pretty and makes a great quick and easy card with some layering.

    Looking forward to this new addition to your site. Sounds like lots of fun.

    Kim Innis said:

    Well, I blew my website address on the first post, so here is a corrected comment. AND I also meant to say that “I love (not lover) her (Jennifer’s)work.” She is DEFINITELY one of my favorite designers.

    I’m so happy that Hero Arts is expanding the horizons to blogging!! There are some very artistic gals on your Design Team and it’s exciting that they will be showing up daily challenging us with Inspiration and Creativity!! I am really looking forward to it! Now lets see, which stamp is my favorite? hmmm, it would be easier to pick a group of stamps and I would choose the Designblock series! I just love to use background stamps!

    jjob80 said:

    Hi,

    Great blog, love the new ideas! My favorite stamp (too many to choose from!) is the Peeking Posies. I have used them in so many ways and with many different materials, such as embossing, chalks, watercolors. I love the images and have definitely got tons of use out of them in cards and scrapbooking!

  68. 68


    Nancy Olson said:

    I love all my Hero Arts stamps, but my favorite right now is K4883 CardArt Happy Wishes. I love to do the white crayon technique with it and the one where you color the stamp with markers, then white emboss velum to layer on top just a little off kilter.

  69. 69


    Deanna M. said:

    This is wonderful news! Thanks for the heads up about this great new addition to your website! I love Jennifer’s page and card.

Oh, and a P.S.: I love your clear stamps!

    Diane Sperry said:

    I can’t even begin to state which of the hero arts are my favoirite. I love the tulip and many of the flowers and the birds. I have used so many of the flower and the four birds in my poems. I also love the new squirell and bird card and the owl. You have outdone yourself with all the creative stamps that make my cards look so professsionally made with that personal touch. I am dissapointed that some of the card kits are no longer including ink and embellisments. The whole idea of buying the kits is to have everything together at one price. I loved the original concept. I don’t mind spending a little more to have everything included. Diane Sperry

    Shirley Lee said:

    I have been using Hero Arts stamps for years. In fact I have separate drawers in my stamp room just for the Hero stamps since I purchased so many. I love all your flower and flourish stamps and use them frequently. I jump to your website every Monday morning to view the new card of the week. They are so creative. The technique section is another favorite area of your website, too, because I love to try new techniques and share them with friends. You must have a very creative team to produce the quality and creativity of your stamps. Keep up the creative juices. Great idea for this blog!!

    SIncerely,
    Shirley Lee

    Diana Barnett said:

    These bolgs are great. I love that you are doing one. I can get my Hero Arts fix daily now. You have way too many stamps to pick one. I’ve been using them so long that some of favorites are long retired. The collages are great & remind me of some of your earlier items. I love stamping them several times & then cutting them apart & putting tham back together again. Todays favorite is DesignBlock Silhouette. I like the sample technique. Will try that with some other stamps, too. Thanks for being on the cutting edge and so innovated. diana

    I absolutely love using Hero Art Stamps….they are so easy to be creative with, whether using them as a background or focus item. One of my favorite stamp/set is the Special Edition Flourish Flowers.
    Stamping is my main activity for relaxing.
    It’s great to be able to go online and read about new projects and ideas. Thanx…..Carol

    Robyn Reed said:

    This is a great idea. The daily blogs based on a weekly theme will be interesting.

    My favorite Hero Arts stamps are the five wood stamps in the “Impressions from real leaves” set. These have so many uses for both stamping and scrapbooking.

    Thanks for the oppotunity to enter.

    OH!!! How excited I am to have this new contact to inspire me on in learning more about papercrafting! Hero Art Stamps have been in my collection for MANY years. The DESIGN BLOCK FLOURISH is one of my favorites as I can use it in so many ways~the full design or just a partial part of the block design on a corner of my paper, etc. FUN! FUN! FUN!
    THANK YOU, designers, for making this such an informative website!!!!

    I have always enjoyed visiting the Hero Arts website since it began,especially for the Learning Centre,Tutorials,instructions and great inspiration.
    I have been stamping for 9 years ,doing collage,making greeting cards, Artist Trading Cards and now have just started doing ‘inchies’. There is no end to what we can do with the wide variety of images you offer.
    The blog is a great way to learn more things and trade ideas. My last Hero Art stamp purchase this past weekend was the Ornate Bird which I just love!

    Hi there. I just love all of your stamps. It’s hard to pick a favorite but one of them is Fanciful Filaments. You can do so much with this set. I seem to go back to it time and time again when I’m looking for ideas for cards. My wish of course is to have one of all of your stamps!!!! Love them all.

    I’m happy to see you blogging Hero Arts. I’m thrilled with your website so I’ll be visiting here as well. My friends call me a fossil stamper as I’ve been at it since 1994. Some of my first stamps came from Hero Arts & I still use them.

    Weeeee! I am so excited to be here and so glad you are doing this! I have loved Hero Arts forever!!!!! I never win anything, but I am posting anyway. I have quite a few Hero Arts Stamps and must say they are ALL my favorites! Now I must go see what I can put together for the contest.

    How great. a new way to fuel my passion. If i had to choose a favorite stamp, can it be a set? I love the clear calendar stamps. I have January - December and use them all the time. I am looking forward to this blog and the challenges.

    Hi there international stampers! We’ve had a few questions on whether the contests were for US residents only — and the answer to that is NO WAY! You are more than welcome to play! Come and join the fun! I have updated the FAQ as well.

    Susan Stieler said:

    Hero Arts are absolutely my favorite stamps, but the most favorite so far is the set of four little birds. Coming in a close second is the clear set of butterflies. I have used these on so many cards. Fortunately, I keep a photo journal of all the cards I make, so I don’t accidentally send a person a very similar card the next year. I just have a file with photos of both outside and inside of the cards, filed in categories. For anyone who makes a lot of cards and doesn’t always have time for a new idea, this works great.

  104. 104


    Sandy Dolan said:

    I love the set of birds also. You can use them for almost any occasion and make each card look different. I love this blog.

    I love the simplicity of Hero Arts stamps. I’m a cardmaker and really like the fact that I can design cards that are quick or detailed, elegant or just plain cute without having to spend too much time on them.

    Joanne G said:

    My Favorite Hero set is High-Country Wildflowers!! It is so very versatile. I am a card maker and there are times I have had a mind block (usually when my Muse is taking a nap) so I take out my Flower sets and they just seem to pop onto the paper for me. They are just wonderful by themselves or with whatever I want to pair them with. I have used them for every occasion you can think of. They are a must to own! (I have quite a few Flower stamps)
    Try one….you will love them too…..

    I love the new blog and it will definitely be one of my daily stops & shops for ideas and inspirations. Hero has been a mainstay for great stamps for a very long time. At this moment, my favorite stamp is the Damask Leaf. I have used it over and over. A close second to the leaf is The Deco Silhouette and it’s counterpart, the Deco Background. The new flourish borders are wonderful as well. I’m looking forward to many great hours of perusing.

    I have been inspired by Hero Arts stamps for the past 10 years! You actually started my stamping addiction! I’m so excited about this blog and hope to get lots of inspiration from it.

    BTW…I think that you were really smart to diversify into clear, acrylics while maintaining the high quality wooden/rubber stamps.

    In regards to the contest…will Canadians get to win too?? :)

    I have used Hero Arts Products for many years and get a catalog every year. My favorite set is Real High Country Wild Flowers. I made the card on the cover of the 2005 catalog “Thinking of You” as soon as I saw it. It is still one of my favorite cards. I love your web site and happy that I have been able to order just what I want from the catalog. Terry

    Sounds like a great blog! My favorite Hero Arts stamp set is one that I use a lot and have had for a while: “Good Alphabet” LL760. It is a tiny alphabet set that fits on everything and looks great. I don’t know if they make it anymore, but if so, check it out!

  121. 121


    Karen Slama said:

    It’s hard to name just one Hero Arts stamp that is my favorite, but the newest one I like the most is the “Solid Flowers Flourish” set. The swirly flowers can be used in a circle in which a sentiment can be added and the curly, swirled stems on the two-flower stamp can be used on the edges of a card. I love simple flower bouquets and these two flower stamps can be used in various ways on many of my cards.

    My Favourite stamp is Happy Birthday number 8570085447.

    This blog could be a very addicting site. I love to stamp and scrap. When buying my stamps, I like to get them in sets and love the new acrylic stamp! My favorite most recently is a Christmas border set I bought. Each new set I buy is my favorite!

    I have so many sets and love them all. I feel most creative with the Real High Country Flowers. They stamp beautifully with inks and chalks. I have used them for cards and backgrounds for scrapbooking. My daughters have even borrowed them for their cards and scrapbooking. Hero arts are my favorite stamps. I love wood mounted stamps but am not scared to buy the clear stamps. I feel Hero Art’s clear stamps give the best impression over other brands.
    I hope to enter competions and get many new ideas to keep me creative.

    What a great opportunity for all of us artists to now be able to share our creativity with one of the best…HERO ARTS!

    Choosing just one of your stamps as a favorite is soooooooooo difficult…
    My favorite is the Stone Etchings Set in the Poetic Prints line….so versatile…because of how they’re designed. I use them as photo corners, in Teabag Folding, geometrics, paper embossing, clay medallions…and on and on.

    How wonderful…can’t wait to get started!

    I love Hero Arts products. They are always very neat and easy to use. I have your website on my favorites, because the galleries are inspirational and they always show new products. Fortunately I have a good paper crafts store only 1 hour or so away with lots of Hero Arts products. Also I’m a member of a newly formed stamp club. It’s always to get with others who like to stamp and work with paper. I’m very happy to discover your blog, and I am looking forward to seeing all the great projects. Keep up the good work!

    Hero Arts are my favorite stamps because of the overall high quality and beauty and/or cuteness of the designs. My most favorite stamp is the poppy
    in the Real Flower series. It mirrors the natural beauty and grace of our state flower, and it lends itself to lots of different kinds of cards, eg birthday, thinking of you, thank you, sympathy, get well. Also, thanks for the great website and ongoing design ideas. Wonderful!

    A big sunny hallo from Australia

    I’m back as I promised. A blog like this one is great for people who procrastinate or can’t find time for scrapbooking; surprisingly, if it’s your real passion, being in touch with other like minded people motivates and inspires you enough to reorganise your schedule a bit, and start or finish what you’ve been planning to start of finish for a long time.

    I’m ready.

    Of all the different companies from whom I’ve purchased stamps, Hero Arts will always be my favorite. The design, quality of the rubber, color index and ease of use just can’t be beat. Although I do not care for the clear designs, I love to use the Fantastic Flourishes CL106 because they add such elegance in just one (or two) easy swoops!

  153. 153


    Laura H. said:

    I have so many favorite Hero Arts stamps! Right now, my favorite is E4742 Bird with Long Legs and the Hero Arts sample card You’re the Best by Jennifer McGuire! I love how she used the library pocket card with this cute birdie!! I’m looking forward to this new Hero Arts Blog too!!

So many of the HA stamps are my favorites, it’s hard to choose. This spring the stamp set I’ve used the most is Four Woodblock rubber stamps, LL682, so right now that is my favorite. I’m excited about the clear circular stamps and can’t wait to try them. I’m just wondering what punches or nestabilities are compatible with these stamps? I’m looking forward to being a frequent blogger.

    Caroline said:

    You mean we are only allowed to have ONE favorite stamp? Uh oh, I’m in trouble.

    My favorite stamp depends on what I am working on. Right now I am making stationery and notecards as a gift for my sister. I have really enjoyed the “Clear Design Circular Designs” set for this. I take a matching ink to do a tone on tone design, or the Versamark to do a background that adds something special to the area where you write your note or letter. Using inks that complement the card or stationery, I stamp out the designs directly onto the card, or on white and cut them out with a round punch. These cut outs can be added using a pop dot, or over a ribbon trim, or when done on round stickers as a seal for the envelope. For seals or cut outs, if I want to stamp onto bright, or dark colored cardstock or paper, I use StazOn to make it pop. I like the matte finish.
    When doing kids cards, I have used these round stamps as a “ball” adding a curved line to make it look like it is bouncing, or stamping overlapping circles (without re-inking) to make it look like the ball is in motion.

    Hero Arts stamps are my “go to stamps” when beginning new projects. My most recent purchases are “A True Impression Everytime” and “Collector’s Edition-Swirls”. The sentiments in “A True Impression” have many, many applications and can be used in whole or in part, and of course, the “Collector’s Edition-Swirls”…. well the mind “swirls” at the possibilities. I know all of us Hero Arts fans will be enjoying this Blog. Thanks Lynn

    I thought all stamps were relatively the same until I bought some Hero Arts stamps. I LOVE them! I did all my Christmas cards with the cute little bird stamp and they were a hit! I am slowly building a collection of Hero Arts. I look forward to the page and card ideas your company offers. I find myself going through your card ideas very often and come away with new energy to make something “homemade” that always means more. Thank you! Sheree

    EVERY stamp from HA is awesome. I have been using your stamps for many, many years. I love your catalogs because it give great ideas on how to use them - once I see your idea, then I either copy it or redesign it to fit the individuals I am making the card for. Congratulations on the BLOG - can’t wait to read all of the suggestions from everyone. I look forward to your “weekly” adventures. Kudos to Hero Arts and keep the excellent products and great ideas coming!

    Wow, to choose just one.
    How about just one of the new stamps that I know I will love? That would be the Leaf Fluorish. I just love the backgrounds, silhouettes and accents that it does.

    What a great idea, this blog gives us in the UK the chance to keep more up-to-date and in touch.
    My favourite Hero Arts stamps are without doubt ‘Delicate Rose Stems’ which look fab in decoupage, the simple ‘Happy Birthday to you’ and my absolute favourite, the ever faithful ‘Real Carnation’. It’s the one I always turn to if in doubt. I have used it for birthdays, get wells, sympathy, anniversary and wedding acceptance and I’m always inspired with an idea when I use this lovely stamp.
    Hi to you all in the US from rainy old England.

    Like many of us ‘international’ card makers and scrapbookers who feel sometimes a little isolated, Hero Arts makes me feel like part of one big family. I’ve never blogged before- this is my first. I’m really looking forward to reading and sharing ideas and comments with like minded people! Here’s to HERO ARTS all the way from New Zealand!

    Wow! Big changes. I’m glad to see your redesigned website. I’m a huge Hero Arts fan. Now days what’s popular is so cluttered that I constantly go back to my Hero Arts stamps and samples. I love simple designs with beautiful colors and embelishments like jewels, pearls and ribbon! The contests always got me motivated to make something, even though I never won, so it’s great they’re back! Thanks for your wonderful products!

    Allyson Longe said:

    I’m another fan of Hero Arts fromthe UK. I’ve always found your website a source of great inspiration and the ‘new’ site is even better. It’s impossible to pick one favorite stamp, the new ones are brilliant while the old ones still keep coming out to be used all the time.
    Well done, Allyson.

    I think your re-designed site is awesome!! I’ve always loved all the ideas and inspiration on the Hero Arts site and now it’s even better with the blog and videos of how to make cards, etc. I have a ton or your stamps and make cards for every occassion. I’m from a huge family so there’s always a birthday card needed. :)
    I wish I had a job working for Hero Arts. It sounds like a dream job to me!
    Thank you and keep up the great work!

    Jill Swanson said:

    I Love this site. What a great idea and the topics and projects are so helpful. My question is about stamping on acetate. I have a difficult time getting a consistant image. It seems I have areas on my stamps that seem to be well inked, but there are places that just don’t transfer to the acetate in a clear crisp image. Any help is greatly appreciated. I seem to go through many tries to get an acceptable but not perfect image. I use Stazon ink. Perhaps my stamp choice is the problem . Jill

    amy said:

    Hero Arts stamps have always been a favorite since I began my journey into the world of stamp art 8 years ago with my daughter leading the way and constantly encouraging me. She now lives in New Zealand but has not stopped the contest submittals nor the encouragement. I am always excited to see what new things HA can come up with and love that they now have clear stamps also.
    Keep up the good work.

    shari said:

    Hi Jill,
    I’ll give you my tip for stamping on acetate. First I make sure my ink pad is fresh, if not i re-ink it. When I apply the ink to the stamp, I ink it rubber side up so I can see where I’m adding the ink. Also, when I think I have enough ink on the stamp…I make another round with the ink pad to make sure. Then I stamp.

    If my image is crooked or I slipped, I use Hero’s Ultra Clean spray to clean the image from the acetate and start over.

    Hope that helps!
    :o)

  225. 225


    Jeri Aaron said:

    Kathy, I don’t have the perfect storage system for the clear stamps (just an Iris card drawer) BUT I find that the clear stamps are fantastic for packing in your art bag (for traveling). I can pack them in a ziplock bag and fit them into the art bag (which I refer to as my Travlin’ Wilbury) lol. They take up so much less space!!

    Hellooooo……there HA & fans! This is my first blog ever, I’m still learning about computers. I’m not sure why people say it’s faster, I’ve spent 20 hours on the HA web site. For all those who are laughing at me-right back at you, you know you are just as addicted. HA has been a first choice in stamps for years for me. I’m enchanted with the owls as you can tell from my wish list. I’m also trying to understand all HA has going on on this site. I appreciate all HA’s work.

    I love to stamp and lately have been very way too busy to make something each week. I was lucky enough to have a new grandaughter in May and find I just never get any cards done. I have high hopes but just never get it done. Making cards is the best part. It is not just a sign it and send it. You put some of yourself into the card. It makes you feel good and it makes the person receiving it feeling great, beacause they know you spend your time and made the card personal.

    I want to submit a comment about being thankful for this weeks contest.

    I want to thank the girls in my rubberstamp club group for all their nice and encouraging comments on the cards I have created for our projects. Their comments, a few years ago, when I was just beginning to stamp kept me going and helped encourage me learn new techniques. Now I really enjoy my hobby and get a chance to express myself through rubber 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.

Keep up the great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well, it all started about 10 years ago…I decided to make my own christmas cards…
    I could probably open MY OWN Hero Arts store now…except that I couldn’t part with ANY of my collection-they are some of my dearest possessions!!!

    Hero Arts has always been on the cutting edge-I could never figure out how they could out do themselves year after year - but they have surprised me with every catalog they release…not to mention that their Christmas supplements are to DIE FOR!!! They often have been the only stamp company to offer trendsetting ideas…then everyone else tries to play catch up!

    I can honestly say that they have never disappointed me with the variety they offer-
    Just wish that money grew on trees so that we did not EVER have to pick and chose!

    Good Morning,

    I am having a hard time locating card ideas for these specific products:
    Item# CL001: Clear Designs Set-Letter – A
    Item# CL006: Clear Designs Set-Letter – F
    Item# CL007: Clear Designs Set- Letter - G
    Item# CL011: Clear Designs Set- Letter - K
    Item# CL018: Clear Designs Set- Letter - R

    I realize that they are from 2006 unfortunately with my vast collection of stamps I am just getting around to using these. I am making Christmas cards as gift for my children teachers, and will give @ end of week. When I input the product # in search box, there are no results. My goal is locating cards that will provide some idea’s, I have gone to the gallery for the cards , however I am not sure what section they are located under, if they are available @ all? Any assistance regarding this matter would greatly be appreciated, thanks in advance for your time.

    Hi there looks like I made a mistake uploading my cards for March2012a. I tried to tag it to March2012a but not sure if my cards made it to Hero Arts pool group because I didn’t send it to groups I think. My username is aecards, was wondering if I did it right..? Thanks in advance for checking and for the help…

  357. 357




    libby said:

    Hi aecards, thank you for playing along with the contest! We can see your cards in the Hero Flickr pool now, and the timestamp confirms that you uploaded on March 15, so you are all set. Keep in mind that the first round entries are also considered during the second round, so you are welcome to add the March2012B tag if you’d like - but they will be consider either way.

    Hi!
    I just muddled my way through my first Challenge entry. It’s an interactive birthday card. The images appeared in the Flickr group, but they didn’t appear in the order I had them in the Flickr Organizr, so some of the impact of the surpise at the end is lost. How do I make sure the images stay in order when I use the “Send to Group” link? Thanks very much!

    m3m said:

    I am fairly new to card making and enjoy looking at cards made on various sites. There are many wonderful Christmas cards in the Flickr group. Here’s the thing that strikes me about the front of many cards-they have way too much “stuff” on them! Some cards are so busy the beauty of the card is lost. Is the what card making is about- more is better? I actually fell that less is more if you want to make a beautiful card.

    Your thoughts?

    I’m thinking about purchasing a die cutting and embossing machine. I’ve heard about the Sizzix. And Stampin-up’s Big Shot. I have no idea about either one. This year I made 75 Christmas Cards and cut out by hand all the parts. It took a long time as you can imagine. I never thought of buying a machine before because of the added expense of die cuts and embossing folders. Is it worth having such a machine?
