Hero Arts / My Monthly Hero May Blog Hop / Giveaway

You are my inspiration 

Hello! 
Welcome to the My Monthly Hero Blog Hop!  Hero Arts has OUTDONE themselves this month!!  This My Monthly Hero Kit may be my most favorite yet!   This month's kit was amazing to work with and I have a few cards to share......let's get started!

This month takes us to our craft rooms, crafty friends, and getting your craft on!  The main kit and add-ons are fabulous!  The kit is available for a limited time only - once it's gone, it's gone. Kits begin shipping from Hero Arts on Friday, April 5. 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 Kit Includes:
6x8 clear stamp set
20 Frame Cuts
2 Fancy Dies
Purple Sparkle Embossing Powder
Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink Cube
Lavender Washi Tape
5 Mini Clothespins

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

This kit just screams RAINBOW so my first card shows off the main kit.  I stamped the fun crafty images down the left side with Copic friendly ink.  Using Copics in rainbow colors, the images were loosely colored and highlighted with a N0 Copic.  To fill some of the white space in between the images, the outline heart was stamped.  The sentiment (from Crafty Messages) was stamped in bold black across the panel.

You are my inspiration2

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

My second card uses some of the add-ons from this month's kit.  I ADORE the Crafting Border Fancy Die!  The die was cut out of white cardstock and set aside.

Stay Crafty

To a white note card, strips of rainbow colored cardstock in 1/2" strips were adhered to the front.  After adhering the crafty frame, a sentiment from Crafty Messages was stamped in bold black ink and a few black gems were adhered.

Stay Crafty2

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

My third card goes back to my cross stitching days!  I know I stitched many panels back in the day and what better than a rainbow heart panel!  The stitched heart from Cross Stitch Patterns was stamped in rainbow inks onto a panel.

Eat Sleep Craft 

I wanted my card to look like a frame piece of art.  Using the new Wood Frame Infinity Dies, I die cut one of them out of kraft cardstock.  The frame was added with foam adhesive.  For my sentiment, it was stamped onto a circle die and added with foam adhesive.
