September Challenge: Create a NEW stamped project based on any of the following…

  • Fall Feast - All things Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving
  • A Stamp for All Seasons - Stretch those stamps! We challenge you to use a seasonal/holiday stamp in a way other than its intended use. Can you adapt a Winter tree for another season? A Valentine’s heart for Christmas? So many possibilities! We can’t wait to see your creative approaches. Be sure to check out Shari’s technique article and video HERE for one idea.
  • Color Challenge - Create a project using the color palette below for inspiration. Color challenge projects can be of any theme.


Please use at least one Hero Arts stamp or Hero Arts digital element on each of your projects.
