Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero: September Challenge

Sep 09, 2022 Michelle Lupton

Hello! The new September challenge at Stay Crafty with A Blog Named Hero begins today. The theme is "Die-lightful". We want you to use your dies in any way you want – as a focal point, as a background, you could create your own stencil using a die – the possibilities are endless! 

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

We also have a special guest artist this month – Gale Thompson

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 October 2nd 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 August, our challenge theme was "Hip to be Square", and your entries blew us all away with your creativity!

Our random winner of a $50 Hero Arts voucher is Karen Ladd with this pretty butterfly card.

Our Design Team favourite winner of a $50 Hero Arts voucher is Melissa B, with this clever use of the Square Infinity Dies.

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!
