Here's a bit from Hero Arts about this month's kit:

"Over the past year, our hearts have been heavy while we watched from afar as Australia suffered from devastating bushfires. With Australia on our mind we designed this month's release, paying homage to the fascinating animals, the gorgeous flowers and the beautiful landscape of the land Down Under. As we release this, our hearts are now heavy for a new reason. But we are excited to take you on a much-needed crafty escape to Australia, as we celebrate this amazing country!"

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 should begin shipping from Hero Arts on Friday, April 20th.****  You can now subscribe to receive the kit monthly and never miss one!  The kit value is over $80......but only costs $34.99.  Once this kit is gone, it's gone!

We know you are excited to get your kit and appreciate your patience as we work through delays during this time of COVID-19. We are sending love and support, as well as healing thoughts to those who know people who have fallen sick or are sick themselves.



Kit Contents:
6 x 8 Clear Stamp Set
31 Coordinating Frame Cut Dies
5.25" x 6.5" Sunset Stencil
Intense Black Ink Pad

*********************************************
I have a couple of cards to share using the add-ons from this month's My Monthly Hero Release!

My first card uses the Color Layering Joey stamp set.  This stamp works with several colors/shades of brown and is very easy to line up.  My card starts with a masked off sky line/grass line using Broken China and Twisted Citron Distress Inks.  I added a few stamped and die cut sprigs of grass along with my stamped Joey.  I stamped two sentiments in bold black ink for this CAS card.

My second card uses the Surf's Up Fancy Die Set.  This set is AMAZING!!!  You can add so many details with these dies!  I started with Navy cardstock and literally "lightened" it with white pigment ink and my finger.  I did the same for the layering part of the wave die done in teal cardstock.

For my background, I wanted to create a pink/sunset type of sky.  Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, and Worn Lipstick Distress Inks were blended in ombre fashion over a panel of white cardstock.  I stamped some birds and a sentiment from the Beach HeroScape stamp set.  I love the font in the sentiment from this set!  I added my wave to a 5/8" strip of navy cardstock onto my pink sky background.  As a final touch, I added a surfer girl and surfboard.
