Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero: June Challenge

Jun 10, 2022 Michelle Lupton

Hello! The new June challenge at Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero begins today, and the theme is "By the Sea"! You might make a seaside themed card, or something with mermaids, or ships, or boats, or anchors, or you could do a technique involving water, or use a blue/green colour sheme  – the possibilities are endless!

Here's some inspiration from our design team to get you in the mood!

You can find Rachel at her blog, on Instagram, on YouTube and on Facebook.  Thank you, Rachel – we're so happy to have you as our guest this month!

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, 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 grab the link – this can be your blog, Instagram, a Flickr account – anywhere that allows you to have a URL or website location to link up, and where we can see your post.

We would love for you to use your favorite Hero Arts products, but all projects that fit the theme can be entered and will be included in the draw – finding joy in crafting is what's important! Entries must be submitted by July 3rd 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.

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 May, our challenge theme was "Get Scrappy", and yet again, your entries blew us away!

Our random winner of a $50 Hero Arts voucher is Samantha Reed with this lovely floral and butterfly wreath card, using the Big Hugs Stamp & Cut.

Our Design Team favourite winner of a $50 Hero Arts voucher is Hannelie Bester, who used the Hero Florals Nasturtiums with cardstock scraps to form stripes.

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!
