Hero Arts / My Monthly Hero March Blog Hop / Giveaway

All the fish 

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!   This month's kit was amazing to work with and I have a few cards to share......let's get started!

This month's kit takes us to an aquarium and all things sea life!  There are so many options for designs from this kit......I had so many ideas but not enough time!  The kit is available for a limited time only - once it's gone, it's gone. Kits begin shipping from Hero Arts on Friday, March 8. 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 main kit is just INCREDIBLE!  It is a HUGE kit with loads of images and dies to cut everything.  The frame die included makes neat aquarium themed cards!

My husband scuba dives and has swam with the sharks and fed them!  I knew I had to make a card using these images!  I started with a piece of Bristol smooth watercolor paper to which I blended the mini inks Reactive Sea Glass and Reactive Blue Water.  Spritzed some water over the top and blotted with a paper towel.  I die cut the aquarium frame from black cardstock and using this as a guide, stamped the schools of fish and sentiment in black ink.  I stamped my diver and shark with gray ink, die cut, and added them to my scene.  As a final touch, I added some of the blue droplets included in the kit!

Pet Turtle

My second card uses the add-on stamp set called Pet Turtle.  This set is just adorable!!  I did some simple Copic coloring and with using some stencils from my stash, I created a one layer card except for my die cut images.

Stay Golden

My third card uses another adorable add-on set called Fishy Stamp & Cut.  I started creating this CAS card by scoring 5 lines at the bottom of my white notecard.  This offered a place to "ground" my fish bowl image.  I Copic colored my images, added my fishies with foam adhesive, and my white heat embossed sentiment strip.  I just LOVE this sentiment!

reat cards. I like the use of grey for the diver. Looks realistic!

Emma Rose said...

Love the turtle and goldfish cards

Savannagh Kacey said...

Your crisp, clean backgrounds really pop the sentiment and make the emphasis be on the sentiment above the artwork. Sometimes I think we get so caught up "art-ing" that we forget the relationship with our recipient, who inspired the card in the first place!

Dee Earnshaw said...

Jo Malicoat said...

So many wonderful designs. Thanks for the inspiration Amy.

Teri Smith said...

Wonderful cards Amy! This kit is my favourite out of the ones I've seen so far. I'm an ocean girl & it would be a dream come true to win it - honestly. The blues in the water reactive ink pads are perfect for underwater scenes as is reflected in your first card. So much detail in that aquarium die cut to look at. Wow! I adore the turtle standing on the overturned wood & the sentiment can't help make someone smile. I know I did. I am so drawn to the CAS style of both your second & third cards. Something as simple as scoring lines to create the base for the fishbowl makes such a difference. Thank you for sharing your talent & inspiring me.

Donna Baker said...
