Day 9 of the latest Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring challenge and my personal wood stamp challenge and today I’m playing with two Hero Arts stamps sets that were manufactured ten years apart!
Over a decade ago, I saw the cutest lion stamp ever – the only problem was that he was in a set with three other cute animals which I couldn’t justify buying…. but as we know, my willpower isn’t strong when it comes to crafty supplies and after a little while I caved and bought the Hero Arts Playful Animals set. Imagine my disappointment when I stamped up the lion and discovered that the rubber had a few faults in it! After while, I decided to contact Hero Arts to see if I could buy just the lion. The customer services team was amazing and immediately offered to send my the stamp free of charge to the UK! I was so surprised as I’d become quite used to difficult customer service experiences elsewhere in life! But I guess that it truly the Hero Arts way – own the issue and deal with it quickly and politely to exceed customer expectations. Given my recent experience with another manufacturer (where I was made to feel like a naughty child for asking to buy a replacement for one faulty clear stamp) I’d say Hero Arts still leads the way!
Anyway I paired the lion with a sentiment from the 2017 Color Layering Bengal Tigers set and assembled the card following a sketch from a new-to-me challenge, Paper Craft Crew Challenges.
Thanks for stopping by!
