Hero Arts / My Monthly Hero January Blog Hop / Giveaway

Valentine's Sign 

Hello and Welcome!  
I am so excited to be a part of the My Monthly Hero Blog Hop this month!  Hero Arts is one of my favorite companies so designing with the My Monthly Hero Kits is always an honor!   You are going to LOVE this month's kit (wink wink).  

This month's kit has some fabulous LOVE themed sets and dies!  The kit is available for a limited time only - once it's gone, it's gone. Kits begin shipping from Hero Arts on Friday, January 11. You can now subscribe to receive the kit monthly and never miss one!  The kit value is over $70......but only costs $34.99.  Once this kit is gone, it's gone!



The sign die included in the main kit makes the cutest SHAPED card!  I went with a chalkboard look with everything I added to it.  

I white heat embossed all the flowers and the containers onto black cardstock and die cut using the coordinating dies.  I added these to the bottom of the black "chalkboard" panel.  The sentiment was also white heat embossed left justified and a single heart was added as well.  All my images were colored with Prismacolor pencils onto the black cardstock.  My chalkboard sign was added to a woodgrain stand--LOVE!

***********************************

My second card is so "punny"!  I've used the Color Layering Waffles and coordinating dies.  I started with stamping my waffles in 3 tones of brown ink and die cut.  I layered my waffles onto a white standard circle die cut which was layered over a white stamped panel that was made using Bursting with Love Bold Prints cling background and red ink.

I layered my heart panel onto a red panel.  I added a white heat embossed sentiment that was done on a black strip of cardstock.  Two red gems flank either side of my sentiment.

Amy, I am really digging the heart background on your second card! Unfortunately that sold out before I could get my crafty hands upon it! It really does look spectacular on your card and in red! I also like the sandwich board card too. So cute! And a wonderful idea that you raised the images on the board, but just a smidge. Enough to give it more depth and intrigue! Great cards!!!!
