Hero Arts / My Monthly Hero February Blog Hop / Giveaway

Roaring Good Time 

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 so much fun to work with that I have FOUR cards to share......let's get started!

This month's kit takes us back to the Roaring 20's but don't let it fool you!  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, February 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!



Let's start off with the core kit.  

Here I've used some stamp elements from the main set and gold heat embossed them onto a white panel.  To the red panel, I ink blended Delicata Golden Glitz with a blending brush (the ones I recommended and that you can find on my LinkTree on Instagram).  I added it heavily to the perimeter of the panel as the center will be covered up.  Once done, the gold embossed sentiment panel was added with foam adhesive.  Done!

Bee's Knees 

My second card also uses the core kit in more of what it was designed for......the Roaring 20's!  I created a shaker card using the A2 Fancy Die that is included in the kit.  The A2 Fancy Die was done in gold cardstock and layered over a black panel that the "window" was hand trimmed out to make the shaker.  I filled the shaker with the black/gold confetti that also comes with the kit.  

To the front of the card, I added the stamped man and woman dancing with foam adhesive over the shaker portion of the card.  For a sentiment, it was white heat embossed onto a black panel of cardstock and adhered to ground my images.

Window Die

Moving onto more traditional ways to use the kit and some of the fabulous Add-Ons.  This card uses lots of white space using the Ballroom Window Fancy Die.  I added my window panel with foam adhesive over a white notecard that was ink blended with Broken China Distress Ink in ombre fashion.  

My butterfly is from Deco-rations (a new add-on set) and was black heat embossed.  I lightly flicked shades of pink Copic over it's wings.  Once done, the image was die cut using the coordinating dies and added to my window with foam adhesive.  For a sentiment, I used a small but gorgeous sentiment from the new set, Diamond in the Ruff on a thin white sentiment strip.  A few blue gems were added for shine.

Rainbow

For my last card, I knew I wanted to stamp a panel in rainbow color with this image from Deco Celebration.  Using inks from my stash, I inked the image and stamped it on the angle in rainbow order.  

For the sentiment (Deco-rations), it was white heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip and cut into a banner.  The banner was added with foam adhesive and gems for more sparkle and shine!
