Grrreat Tutorial Ellen. Each step was so complete. I am saving this one for future use :o) I really need to invest in the Distress paint daubers, you as sooo many others are just wild about these daubers! Thanks for all your helpful insight into the products you share with us!

I like the idea of having a comparison for the colours.

I have used the HA Notecards and love that they are white on the inside so writing a sentiment is no problem.


Sometimes I am color challenged and having a comparison would be helpful to me. I have used HA stamps in the past, but I have not used the stamp pads or paper. Thank you for posting the tutorial. The card is beautiful.

This was an amazing technique and created a beautiful card. Although I've been a fan of Hero Arts for years, I've never used any of their paper products, nor any of the Memory Box. I love the idea of sets and side by side comparisons can only be good.

I think it would be extremely helpful. I have not yet used Hero Hues but have used Memory Box quite a lot and find it to be an excellent product. Judy S

I have not used ethier product line for my card bases. Cardstock is what I use. Usaully color comparsions online side by side is good enough to see the differences. As per your example. I was happy that you have started to carry hero Arts!


I have never used either the Hero Arts cardstock collection or the Memory Box collection. However, seeing as SU is changing its color groupings and dropping many of the colors I love to use, I will most likely be looking for cardstock from other companies that coordinates with the SU inks and markers I already own and love. That said, I think offering sampler pads (perhaps 1x1 inch square pieces) of colored cardstock lines for sale at a reasonable rate is an idea to contemplate. It is often hard to tell a true color of cardstock online.


Love the look of the Spellbinders embossing folder on the Hero Arts paper. Beautiful card, Ellen.

To be honest, I forget at times about Hero Arts paper. I do use Memory Box papers. I am not for sure how much I would use the comparison.

I do love both companies stamps.

As always I love the knowledge you so kindly share.

Thanks for the giveaway.

I have not used Memory Box papers before so a comparison sampler would be great - especially when ordering online! Thanks for a chance to win a great prize!

I love that I can come here and extend the pleasure of seeing how the different Hero Arts products can be used. You all are so very creative. A match made in heaven for sure.


I have not used either collection, sigh. However I find comparisons always useful and LOVE them! And samplers- I find they are so worth having when I order paper or look for colors for a project.

Haven't used these paper lines, but your explanation of Hero Arts' colors was helpful and I would love to see a comparison with Memory Box. Thanks!

Sarah Kaczorowski

I have used the memory box line and yes I would find a comparison chart helpful. Thanks so much! Sarah

I've never used any Memory Box products, but comparison tools are always helpful. I have a whole bunch of them saved for easy reference.


I have used Memory Box paper, it's just lovely. Would also enjoy seeing the color comparisons too.

Bonnie Thrasher

Love the card!! I have not used either of the papers, but would definately like to see samples of the papers before trying to order either of them.


Beautiful card. I've never used Hero Arts or Memory box papers...I have some stamps and inks though. Love the warm, Spring-y colors.


I have seen the Hero Arts - never used Memory Box. I love Basic Grey, what I would love, being the color challenged person I am, I would love a recommendation of the Hero Arts paper that goes with the Basic Grey collections ....
thanks for sharing your skills!

I have only used Memory Box papers. But having something to use for comparison would certainly be a very helpful tool!


Your card is amazing, thanks for sharing the fun Ranger U techniques! I am a fan of the Hero Hues layering papers, notecards and inks, I love them. I think a color comparison between Memory Box and Hero Arts is a great idea. When Hero changed their notecard colors I found that Memory Box Vanilla Bean is a good substitute for the old Hero Arts Chocolate.
