BasicGrey & Hero Arts!

*****************CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED - THANK YOU!!*********************

Hey, all!

Today I get to share something really exciting with you! Not too long ago, the amazing Jennifer McGuire at Hero Arts asked if BasicGrey and I would participate in their upcoming "All-Star Paper Week." And of course, we both jumped at the chance and said "yes!" And now that time is here!!


Not only are we going to be sharing projects and showing awesome ideas for using our products in conjunction, but we each will have awesome giveaways to share on our respective blogs! Be sure to keep reading to find out more!

First, is the project I created using BasicGrey and some awesome acrylic stamps from Hero Arts. As alot of you know, I "faux-stitch" on my layouts all the time (no sewing machine and too lazy to hand stitch anymore!) and when I saw these border stamps, I was immediately in love! How easy-peasy do they make it??! I especially love that they can be curved to create a wavy pattern like I did here with hardly any effort at all! And these owls? Who could resist those? Definately not me! They made the perfect compliment to the quirky, fun vibe of our Offbeat line!

Supplies:

* Offbeat Casual PP
* Offbeat Nonchalant PP
* Offbeat Novel PP
* Offbeat Chip Sticker ABC
* Hero Arts Clear Design Owl-oween
* Hero Arts Clear Design Dots & Lines
* Other: Bazzill & WorldWin CS, Delta Rubber Stampede Ink, Pop Dots, Berol Prismacolor Colored Pencils

Now, here are some projects from the uber talented Hero artists. Tami Hartley created this with BasicGrey and Hero Arts. Tami said: "I fell in love with
this large scale pod-branch patterned paper from Basic Grey's Offbeat
line when I first laid my eyes on it. I wasn't sure how I was going
to use it on a card, but once I got it home I decided it might be fun
to use for a holiday themed card. (I think the colors from Shari
Carroll's fabulous shabby chic creations were still fresh in my mind!)
To achieve the look I added a strip of stamped snowflakes, a seasonal
framed sentiment, a few pearls --- and voila -- a quick holiday card
with lots of impact!"

Supplies:

* Hero Arts Clear Design Frames and Messages
* Hero Arts Sparkle Clear Holiday Messages
* Hero Arts Sparkle Clear Warm Wishes (snowflake)
* Hero Arts Chocolates & Blueberries Queue
* Hero Arts Neutral Card Buttons
* Hero Arts Accent Pearls Combo
* Basic Grey Offbeat Unexpected PP
* Basic Grey Offbeat Eccentric PP
* Other: ribbon, metallic silver thread, machine stitching, pop dots


Jennifer McGuire created this card with BasicGrey and Hero Arts.
Jennifer said: "BasicGrey continually amazes me with delicious papers
that I just have to have. And many of their paper lines work well
with Hero Arts. When I saw their new line, Urban Prairie, I couldn't
wait to use it. And the Hero Arts background stamp is perfect with it!"

Supplies:

* Hero Arts DesignBlock Stencil
* Urban Prairie Olio Rub-ons
* Urban Prairie 6x6 Paper
* Hero Arts Clear Gemstones
* White Memories Ink
* Hero Arts Strawberry Notecards
* Other: punches, ribbon

And now I have a fab giveaway from Hero Arts! Jennifer was kind
enough to send duplicates of some of the stamps I requested just for my readers! Simply leave a comment here by Tuesday, October 14th at 11:59pmPST
telling us what Hero stamps and BG line you love most and you'll be entered to win these:
Want another chance to win? Hero Arts will have a great giveaway of an Urban Prairie prize pack today on their blog. So be sure to visit HERE and drop them a line!

Thanks so much to Jen and Hero Arts for having us be a part of such a fun celebration!

Thank you for sharing such great inspirations. I am particularly fond of all things Christmas so I would have to say that my favorite BG paper line would be Wassail and my favorite Hero stamp would be the big Seasonal Borders. What fun these two items together would make.

Laura said...

It's too hard to pick one stamp or one line of paper. If it was easy I wouldn't have ab abundance of both in my scraproom. LOL!

Grammy and Olivia said...

Wow--beautiful stuff. I had not seen the Offbeat line...it is awesome! I love all the stitching, but can't seem to make myself drag out the machine, so I think I may have to invest in those border stamps.

Eve said...

BG- Urban Prairie for sure!
Hero Arts- my favorite stamp is:
Double Flourish
Kindly,
~Eve

Jacqueline said...

I love all the Basic grey papers because they are so versatile and I love the background stamps and design blocks that Hero Arts have in their assortment!

With Christmas on the way, I would have to mention Figgy Pudding as a favorite. I am a big fan sets of stamps so that I have coordinated stamps, so favorite Hero Arts line is the Clear Design stamps. I love cupcakesso my favorite set is "Seize the Cupcake."

I love the Basic Grey papers! Especially: Granola, Mellow, Phoebe. But I could find use for every single one, actually. The same goes for the Hero Arts stamps! I love the big owl and the background stamps:). Sani

Anonymous said...

Oooh what a decision...almost like asking which child is your favourite. :) I can't wait for my Wassail paper to arrive on my doorstep. Any of the design block stamps would be right up there as a "must have".

Cheers

I have to say Mellow was one of my all time favorite BG lines. For stamps I would have to go with my Holiday stamps sets Many Blessings or Laughter and Merriment.

syverp@comcast.net said...

I love any of the Hero Arts stamps that have birds on them. And there isn't a single BG line that I'm not in love with - they have such fabulous colors and patterns and each year seems to get better and better.

Basic Grey: Ambrosia (I just love orange!)
Hero Arts: TOO many to pick, but I'm definitely feeling all those cute owls, birds, and frogs!

I recently did some lo's of my son with the archaic line from BG and loved it! I am just getting into stamps so don't have a favorite but would love to find one!

Tracey said...

Such beautiful projects!!

How can you pick just one favourite?!?!? I really like the Design Blocks from Hero and from BG I love the Sugared line. Works perfect with layouts of my baby girl!!

Linda w said...

Which Hero Arts stamp is my fav? I have a whole cabinet devoted to just Hero stamps. I love all their bird images. Basic Grey paper is one of the best DP around. My favorite would have to be Cupcake.

justin and shara said...

I LOVE those stiching stamps!!! So adorable.

Anonymous said...

I must admit those border stamps are so cute! & the Hero Arts OWL stamps are so adorable! & am lovin' that Urban Prairie line from BG! Thanks for the chance to win! Stacy M.

Momma said...

Basic Grey "feels like home to me"...love it all! But Urban Prairie has me excited lately and Mellow is a classic. Hero Arts has so many cute stamps, it's a smorgasbord of indulgences. Background stamps are my necessity though.

Julie Phillips, aka Julieloveslucy SCS said...

ooouuu la la.....what fabulous blog candy! Here's hoping I win!!

Julie

Sherrise said...

If I had to pick from a more recent BG line, I'd pick offbeat.. I drool over every project I see made with this incredible paper!! And of course, whooooo could resist the adorable owl stamps from Hero arts?? Not me, I won't even put up any fight.. I gotta have 'em!!

José said...

Hi! My favorite Hero Arts stamps are the DesignBlocks and one of my favorite BG is Mellow!

Mary said...

I love Hero Arts Design Block Tree. Their stamps are really nice. I had a hard time picking cuz I love most of them. And to choose my fav of Basic Grey would be hard too. I guess the LillyKate Collection is really nice. Thanks for sharing your time and talent with us here in Maine.

LoRi said...

Love what you did with the border stamps on your Halloween layout!

Shannon Hager said...

Just one favorite?? I love the owl stamps by Hero Arts. As for Basic Grey, there are so many favorites. At the top would be Pheobe and Mellow! Thanks for the chance to win!

Nancy S said...

I love the idea of using the clear stamps to make curvy lines--so that gets my vote! I am new to BG, but I love the Urban Prarie papers I saw today. Can't wait to try them out. summ1 at verizon dot net

Harley Dee said...

Love your layout and the girls' cards. So cute! Hmm, my fave Hero stamps are those cupcakes. I love anything with cupcakes!! And BG is one of my favorite paper lines, and Ambrosia is just gorgeous! :D

Avital said...

Thanks for the giveaway. Choosing just one of the Basic Grey lines and Hero-Arts stamp is very difficult. Basic Grey's designs are so yummy, I am just collecting all the paper pads and feel bad about actually using them... I am working on it, though...

Annelies said...

Difficult to pick just one. My favorite Hero Arts stamps are 'Clear Design Owl Christmas'. My all time favorite Basic Grey line is Figgy Pudding: I still love using it for my Christmas cards! Greetings from Belgium, Annelies

Jennifer Love said...

I love the Eva line. Oh...and the Ambrosia. Oh heck, I like them all but I've been using those two more than others lately. hehe

Anonymous said...

It would be really difficult to choose just one line of BG. I love them all! Urban Prairie is scrumptious and will have to be my current favorite (but the Christmas is so beautiful, how will I choose, how will I choose).
Hero Arts stamps... same dilemma. I am highly attracted to their adorable owls. The new Christmas owl set is so stinkin' cute. That will be my favorite today!

Karen P., Idaho

I love the Hero Arts background stamps, they are so versatile and really give you a lot of options for backgrounds as well as highlights to other layouts. As for the BG collection I like best...oh! Do I have to choose? They're all so cool! I guess I'll say Eurphoria. Gorgeous!!

melita said...

gorgeousness! i would love the chance to play with those stitch stamps! I love the look of sewing on my LOs but just don't pull out my super old and very heavy sewing machine that often. i also just got the Urban Prairie and Granola lines from BG and am having a blast playing with those.

Trace Geworsky said...

Mel said...

I love Ambrosia-but Dasher is still my all-time favorite Basic Grey--I've got about three packs of it hoarded. My new favorite Hero stamp is the new stamp with the dates and Remember on it (but I can't remember the name-ironic huh?) I got mine at Michaels and have used it 10 times already!

Jennifer said...

I love BG and Hero Arts, they make a great pair. I love those faux stiches stamps and how you used them.

Cindi T said...

I love both Hero Arts and BG. My favorite Hero Arts stamp that I don't own is the Big Owl. But I would love to own those cupcake and stitch clear stamps in this giveaway. My favorite BG line is the Urban Prairie line. Absolutely love the patterns and colors. Two great companies producing fabulous products.

Anonymous said...

I have many Hero Arts Stamps and would be hard pressed to pick a favorite. Some favorites are the
leaves, trees and design blocks
which are versatile for many types
of cards. Basic Grey: I love the

And thanks for the chance to win this great give-away.

Erin Glee said...

I love all of BOTH Companies products, but since I'm planning a card in my head right now, I will say my favorite Hero Arts stamp set is Happy Haunting (CL254), and my favorite BasicGrey line is "Granola",( which I was SO EXCITED to find, along with another favorite, Urban Prairie, at my local Michaels). Our city does not have a Scrapbook store, so I depend on Micheals for much of my crafting needs. I was happy to find both Hero Arts and BasicGrey at Michaels, and I hope this trend continues!

Nicki said...

I love all from BG and the stamps from hero arts all so cute.

Lisa said...

My favorite BG paper line at the moment is Mellow it works so well for fall layouts and cards. But that being said I love almost every single BG paper line. Hero arts stamp that I need right now the clear christmas owl set.

Sandra Shelton said...

I love the two scoops paper. I think my favorite hero arts stamps have to be the design blocks.

AmyInKy said...

I am knew to stamping, but was thrilled to see that my new mini set of alphabet stamps are by Hero Arts. I am loving everything new that BG is coming out with. The new Offbeat collection is on my wishlist. I just picked up Granola and can't wait to use it on my zoo layouts.

Marilyn said...

I LOVE, did I say love, Urban Prairie! I love all the colors and it is just adorable! I couldn't wait to use it, but it killed me to use it just the same, lol! As for Hero Arts stamps, I love them, just haven't had the luxery to buy any. I don't know my fave HA stamps, but I know I would love most of them, lol!

Susan Beth said...

My fav BG is pretty much anything, although I'm really loving and greatly anticipating the arrival of the Wasail line right now. As for the stamps, the favorite right now is those stitching stamps now that I've seen how they are used by you. Why is it that my favs are always what I don't have yet?

Scrappycath said...

It's so tough to choice just one! I love so many of the Hero Arts stamps! If I must, I'd have to say I love the Clear Design Cupcakes the best, and the Pointsettia, and the birds and .... oh see what I mean?
Same with trying to chose just one BG line, I love ALL the Christmas stuff, and Boxer, and Arcahic, and the new Offbeat, and so on and so on!
It's all your fault, your work is so inspiring!! Keep up the great work!

My favorite BG line at the moment is Granola. I also love many of the Oh Girl and Boy papers and tend to hoarde old papers that have now been discontinued!

It is hard for me to say what my favorite HA stamps might be... the list could keep going and going... I really like their journaling stamps, the asian elements and boarders, and all of the bird stamps!

mil lunares said...

Oh, I LOVE BG paper!! They are so cool and tickle great ideas out of my brain!

Hi Kelly, I am new to your blog and very inspired by your work. I, too, do not like to drag out the sewing machine but like the technique on my pages. The Hero Art dots and lines stamps are right up my alley. My current favorite BG paper is ambrosia. I like the grey and orange together and I am seriosly thinking of re-painting my scrap room with these.

Oh, how I love BG paper and Hero stamps! The Offbeat line has such cool colors and I love all the cool tree stamps that Hero has. And they are so perfect together!!

Marnie said...

Awesome projects! I am so excited to find your blog via the Hero Arts blog. It's like a 2 for 1 bonus day! Thanks for sharing!

Ravengirl said...

My favorite BG line at the present moment is Perhaps! My favorite Hero stamp right now is the DesignBlock Tree! Thanks for the chance to win!!!

ConnieC said...

I love the older Christmas line Dasher and I'm glad that I hoarded a lot of it.

And I love the big wood mounted owl stamp. He's the same one as the one you used on the layout, without the costume

Stitchinwitch said...

My favourite Hero Arts stamps at the moment are the Live Simply UM set but as always that can change depending on my mood (and of course with new stamps lol). I also adore the owl from the Asian Elements unmounted set

My favourite Basic Grey range is Euphoria for many reasons not least the soft hazy quality of the colouring but also as they have a paper named Delirium

Sarah said...

I love LOVE the holiday owls. And the cupcakes are really fun! And the paper I like best is the Off beat collection. Thanks for the giveaway!

Libby said...

My favorite hero stamps are the large background thank you and happy birthday text! My new favorite BG line is Offbeat but my ALL TIME favorite is Fruitcake : )

Heather said...

My favorite BG line is a bit older. I've bought 3 packs of it so far... Color Me Silly. It's so classic! I love the Owl-O-Ween stamps the most out of all of the Hero Arts stamps. All of their Owl stuff is sooo cute.

Val said...

Hero Arts Stamp: Winter Pup
BG Line: Two Scoops

HeathreP said...

My favorite Hero Arts images tend to be their wonderful trees - my absolute favorite at the moment is the Scroll Tree. Flourishes and scrolly images are a close second, though!

As for BasicGrey papers, I don't know the exact name of the line that I love the most, but it is the one with aqua, green, and brown tones in patterns of scrollwork and textile-like designs. Pretty much, though, I like almost any BG paper I see and am always tempted to bring some home with me.

Thanks so much for offering this contest! Now I want to go home and use my BG papers right now (too sad, though, as I am currently at work!)...

Martine said...

OMG... to pick one favorite is much to hard... I do for sure LOVE the Christmas lines Figgy Pudding and Fruitcake. And the owl stamps of Hero Arts are the cutest ever. But these stamps that Jennifer sent to give away would combine darling with the cupcake line... don't you think? Martine

Joanne said...

I really can't choose one of either company. I love the owls from Hero and Two Scoops from Basic Grey.

Anonymous said...

It's too hard to pick one of my favorite line of Basicgrey. I love the Fruit Cake from last year and Archaic this year. One of my favorite stamp from Hero Arts is Jolly Christmas. Thanks for the chance to win yummy stuff.

Atticelf said...

I think the Clear Design Halloween and Owl-oween stamp sets would be fun to play with.

I may have to hit my SB store and grab some of the BG Granola line too.

Anonymous said...

From Basicgrey I love their Christmas papers - Figgy Pudding and Fruitcake. All of their papers are pretty though. Can't pick a favorite from Hero Arts.
Love your current LO's.

Anonymous said...

Anything in the Clear Design line works for me. I love being able to see where I'm stamping and the price is right. :)

I really like the BG Archaic line - grabbed them all.

Julie

Lulu said...

Pick ONE BG line?? Impossible... lol

I have loved most of the past boy lines.. Sweetpea Jack, Dawson, Baby Boy(?), etc...

Hero Arts, I love the background stamps, especially the new christmas one :)

Cindy said...

In honor of my all time favorite BG line, Blitzen, I'm going to say my current fave is Wassail. I just love what BG does for the holidays. I'm eyeing Hero Arts' Gift Tag set for my next stamp purchase. Guess the cold weather has me thinking of Christmas!

jill said...

TinaJewel said...

I do not have any stamps from them as I am just starting up and would love to get these!

Helen said...

This is the frst time I've come across BasicGrey papers, and I love them! Looking forward to finding out more. Absolutley impossible to name a favourite Hero Arts stamp - they are all gorgeous.

Kaitlyn said...

Awesome giveaway, thanks!

My all time favorite BG line is Blush, so pretty. I am loving the new 12" stamps from Hero Arts, so fun!

pam said...

I love the Design Frames and Messages stamps. And I love all Basic Grey!

Maria said...

My favorite BG paper of all time has to be Blush. Right now I am in love with the Hero Arts Seasonal Borders (the 12" ones!)

Mary said...

Totally cute cupcake stamps!

Jenny said...

Love the Halloween layout with the Hero owl stamps. I also love the stitch stamps used, how easy!

Kristin said...

Okay, I *need* the stitch stamp. I'm too lazy to drag out my big ol sewing machine. And how could I ever choose a favorite BG line? Impossible! I love them all! :)

johnsons basement said...

i love the cupcake line with HA cupcake stamps, what could be better?

Carol said...

Am really loving this week of HA with fabulous paper companies! BG is one of my all time favs! I really love the HA owls and the new BG Urban Prairie...just absolutely GORGEOUS!

TammyB said...

I love the background stamps by hero arts and that bg urban prairie line is amazing (no surprise there)

thanks for the inspirations

Tara said...

I think that the Phoebe line is my favorite..not only because it's my cousin's name but because it's so pretty! I love so many Hero Arts stamps it would be hard to narrow down a choice! :D

Tinne said...

My favorite? Hard to say.
Just love BG and Hero-arts!!
Like almost all of the stuff, hard to choose. Thanks for the chance to win.
Greetings from Belgium.

Pamela Bennett said...

I would have to say my favourite Basic Grey line is Wassail and Blitzen because I love Christmas.It could be Christmas every day of the year and I`d never get tired of it LOL. My favourite Hero Arts stamp would have to be Design Block Silhouette.

Karen Hancock said...

Thanks for this great giveaway Kelly. I loved your use of the stitching border for the faux stitching. That would be a great way for me to go, too, since I'm not much of a sewer. I love the Basic Gray Eccentric. And I'm really interested in the little 6x6 pads for cards.

Kelly C. said...

Wow!
Thanks for the opportunity to win this awesome giveaway, Kelly!
I just love these products! Some of my all time favorite companies!
Keeping my fingers crossed.

Jen said...

What an incredibly hard question! You both have so many fantastic products. The HA designblock flourish is fantastic as is the BG urban prairie and offbeat lines. Keep em coming!

Anette H said...

I'm not very original on this one: Urban Prairie is a current favorite! And choosing just one HA stamp is very close to impossible, there are so many favorites, but I am really in love with the owls!! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring us, AND the chance to win GOODIES!
Anette :o)

Chelle said...

definately a hard decision. but i would have to say Hero Arts Fancy Scrolls stamps and BG Periphery.

Kris said...

I think the cupcakes are my new favorites. I also love wordlines

Marie-Précieuse said...

I love all the owl stamps from HERO Arts.
Thanks for the chance to win!

Susan Murphy said...

I love the BG Figgy Pudding. I have a stash! I just got the Hero Arts Christmas Owl (the cutest!) set so I can't wait to combine the two. Thanks for the chance.

Jamie said...

I love the new Offbeat line, so many fun options! And the Hero Arts owls are beyond precious.

Anonymous said...

I am constantly amazed that these creative people can combine colours and textures to create such appealing lines. I have several colloections at home, and frequently have problems cutting the paper up to use it!

Thanks!

Lindsay MacDonald

Beverley said...

I've got to go with the Offbeat bird today ... but in all honesty if it's basic grey - it's a favourite! As for hero arts stamps ... give me cupcakes or birds and I'm in creative heaven.

jill said...

I love the new BG line Urban Prairie! My favorite Hero Arts stamps are their Clear Design Live Simple. Thanks for the opportunity to win a fabulous prize!!

mclesliemom said...

Hi, I love the Urban Prairie paper and I can't pick one stamp. Too hard. But I would love to have the ones you are giving away!

Debbie said...

I love all basic grey papers and if you saw my collection, you would believe me. I am into hero design block right now. Debbie

Jingle said...

I don't think there is a BG line that I don't love! LOL! I really like Cupcake a lot! And those HA cupcake stamps would be great with it!!!

Mel Nunn said...

I have simply fallen in love with the Urban Prairie line! I have a sneak on my blog of a diary/planner I have made using a clear album and the Urban Prairie papers.

I have a favourite stamp too form Hero... its the "many Birds" stamp. Birdies are soo cool!

~kelly marie~ said...

I love the Basic Grey "mellow" line. So gorgeous! I also love the "owl set" from Hero Arts. Those owls are just too cute!
