Giveaway: For the Love of Paper

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Hi friends! Would you like to win a Hero Arts gift card? Read on!

We would love your input on a subject near and dear to all of our hearts — paper! Dream for a moment. What if someone gave you the opportunity to design your own paper foundation line? Think about cardstock…folded cards…maybe even envelopes. What would you wish for? Which characteristics are most  important to you when selecting a paper for stamping? Color? Price? Thickness? Size? Something else? The sky’s the limit. We are greatly appreciative of any feedback you would like to share. Thanks TONS in advance!

As a thanks for taking a few moments of your time, we’re offering two randomly selected winners a $25 gift card to the Hero Arts Online Store! Just leave your paper feedback in a comment here by 11:59pm PST on Sunday, July 12th. The gift card winners will be announced on the blog next week.

Thank you again and have a wonderful day!

Tic Tac Toe Challenge Winners

Monday, July 6th, 2015


Hello, and welcome to the Tic Tac Toe challenge winners’ post. We had lots of fabulous entries for this challenge, and would like to thank everyone who entered. As always, judging was super hard, but we have chosen our favorite four cards and are ready to announce the winners!

First up, it’s paperpicnic (Jayne) with a card that features watercoloring, a tag, and Jayne’s favourite colour - navy blue. We think our Color Layering Bird and Branch stamps look absolutely stunning on this beautiful card.


Next, we have Gayatri Murali who chose to use circles, a background stamp and watercoloring. The vibrancy of her Succulents watercoloring combined with the beautiful sequins makes this card really pop.


Our third winner is Karin Akesdotter, with this soft and pretty creation. Karin chose to use a background stamp, birthday theme and die cutting on her card, and we just love the results, especially the inlaid die cut butterfly.


And finally, it’s Nicole Parmentier with a stylish and unique birthday card featuring our Set Sail stamp set, along with our Waves Background. There’s so much to admire in this fun card… and we just love it.


But we haven’t quite finished… it’s time to announce our random winner, chosen from all entries. And this time, it’s Kelly Latevola.

Winners, congratulations! Please contact us at with your address and phone number by Monday, July 13th, including your list of $30 worth of products. Please include “Tic Tac Toe Challenge Winner” in the subject line.

Thank you again to everyone who entered, and happy stamping,
