Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero: April 2024 Challenge

Apr 05, 2024 Michelle Lupton

Welcome to a new Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero Challenge! April is A Blog Named Hero's anniversary - we started back in 2012 as a challenge run by Linda Trace and Mary Dawn Quirindongo. Since then, we have had so many challenges and a wonderful group of design team members and guest designers. We'd love for you to celebrate our anniversary with us by creating anniversary or birthday cards!

Here's some beautiful inspiration from our design team. You can follow the links below each card to discover even more ideas from these talented artists.

Now it's your turn – how will you interpret the challenge theme? Use the InLinkz tool right at the bottom of this post to link up your newly created card (no backlinks, please), and you will be entered into our draw. We will be giving a $50 gift card randomly to one person who plays along, and another $50 gift card to one of our favourites!

To link up your new project that fits the challenge theme, you need to share it publicly somewhere you can copy the link – this can be your blog, Instagram, a Flickr account, your Splitcoast gallery – anywhere that allows you to have a URL or website location to link up, and where we can see your post.

All products are welcome, but if you want to be in with a chance to win, please use at least one Hero Arts designed product (stamp – physical or digital, stencil, die, rub-on or hot foil plate).

Entries must be submitted by May 5th at 5:00pm PT to be eligible for the giveaway. Scroll down to find the linkup. If you share your project on social media, we'd like you to use the #heroarts and #staycraftychallenge hashtags, please!

We love leaving comments on your entries, but sometimes that is not possible. Please be assured that we have visited each of your posts, whether it be a blog, Instagram, Flickr or somewhere else, but some platforms may limit comments or only allow comments from members. The best way to allow us to comment is to link up to your Instagram post. 

Enter our contest by linking your new project below! Please enter your name in the caption area. By linking your project, you are giving us permission to feature your card on our blog, social media or newsletter, crediting you as the artist.

In March, our challenge theme was "A Kind of Magic", and the gallery showed what beautiful cards can be made using heat embossing!

Our random winner of a $50 Hero Arts voucher is Marlena M with this card using the Architectural Wonders of the World stamp.

Our Design Team favourite winner of a $50 Hero Arts voucher is Golda Peterson with this gorgeous sparkly creation using the Starry Night Brushstroke Bold Prints stamp!

Please email us at info@heroarts.com with "Stay Crafty Challenge Winner" in the subject to claim your prize.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
