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: 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

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:

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.

    Just checking everything out and wow! you have loads of things to inspire here. Not sure on how to start uploading to the Flickr group but sure help will be on its way. Hoping to participate in the Manly Week Contest and to get it uploaded. Not sure who will make the extra card though, my hubby or son. May have to toss a coin on that! Lol!
    Thanks for being here and for giving all of us scrappers a place to be inspired and a place to grow!

    I’m about to try and join the Flickr group and send a card for the simple Christmas card challenge. I love Hero Arts and have for years. I’ll admit it was easier for me to mail in a card for the “old time” contests, but I’m working on getting more tech proficient! We’ll see if you get my entry. Thanks for all the great ideas!
