Hero Arts / My Monthly Hero April Blog Hop / Giveaway


Wishing you the Best

Hello! 
Welcome to the My Monthly Hero Blog Hop!  Hero Arts is one of my favorite companies and their My Monthly Hero Kits are always fun!   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 Italy!  This is a die-focused kit and there are so many options for designs from this kit!  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:
4x6 clear stamp set
7 scenery Fancy Dies
14 5.5" x 8.5" sheets of Hero Hues Premium Cardstock
2 5.5" x 8.5" sheets of vellum paper
2 rolls of 1/2" foam tape
Tombow Mono Drawing Pen (black)

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

My first card uses the main kit exclusively.  I began ink blending a panel with some Distress Inks for a sunset sky.  I decided I wanted to only use the building on the left but wanted two.  So I staggered them but by doing this, the buildings at the top obviously didn't match up.  To fix this, I simply trimmed off the extra part of the card so that the top left of the card is more "shaped".  I added in my other die cut elements and stamped the sentiment and birds.

Wishing you the Best2

Eat Drink Craft 

My second card uses the add-on stamp set called Italian Table.  I LOVE this set!  I started this card out by stamping a tone on tone pattern using the Venetian Fleur-de-lis Bold Prints.  I stamped the napkin, pizza, and wine glass (and colored with Copics).  These were die cut with the coordinating Italian Table Frame Cuts.  My images were added with foam adhesive above a stamped sentiment strip that was also added with foam adhesive.

Village of Thanks

My third card is a CAS card using the layering stamps from Coloring Layering Village.  My village was stamped with various gray and green inks onto a white, trimmed panel.  This panel was adhered to a gray notecard with foam adhesive.  Easy peasy!
