Hero Arts / My Monthly Hero August Blog Hop / Giveaway

Middle Ages

Hello! 
Welcome to the My Monthly Hero Blog Hop!  Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit is so full of stamps and dies to create a medieval themed card!   I barely scratched the surface of my ideas for this kit; however, I have a few cards to share.....let's go see them!  

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 Monday, August 12th.  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!



This kit includes:
6 x 8 Clear stamp set
17 Coordinating Frame Cuts
1 Fancy Castle Die
2 5.5" x 8.5" sheets of Mirri Matte Lava Purple Paper
2 5.5 x 8.5" sheets of Parchment Paper
3 Glimmer Ink Pots (Gold, Purple, Red)
Dragon Scale Sequins

*****************************************
My first card shows off stamps and dies from the main kit.  I started with the Deco in the City background stamp and clear heat embossed it on gray cardstock.  Gives it a shiny finish!  I Copic colored my images and die cut with the coordinating dies.  I added a simple gray sentiment strip stamped with "Welcome to the Middle Ages"!

Follow your dreams

My second card uses an add on stamp set called As You Wish.  I totally fell in love with the carriage and went with the Disney theme Cinderella.  

My background was done using the Rose Bush Cover Plate out of white cardstock.  I adhered it to a white note card and spritzed it with gold shimmer spray and sparkle shimmer spray.  My images were Copic colored and die cut using the coordinating dies.  I added my images with foam adhesive over a simple sentiment strip.

So much design in this kit release. I like both of your cards, especially the first one. I am hooked on some of the dies & love the uniqueness & suitability of the old English sentiments.

Oh I just love the Cinderella and carriage and the use of shimmer spray just makes it absolutely magical! I think that I love this add on set so much!

Enna said...

Amazing cards! I hadn't purchased that Cinderella carriage and the rose background die, but now I am rethinking that. I should have viewed all of the blog hop items first before making my purchases, but, with the kit already sold out, I was afraid of missing out on the add-ons too! Gorgeous cards!
