My Monthly Hero Blog Hop


Happy Monday everyone!

Today is the release day for the MMH kit of March!  This new wonderful kit will be available TODAY March 7th at NOON (Eastern time) at the Hero Arts store. Be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone.

This kit contains: 12 coloring cards on XPressIt paper, coordinating stamps and dies, an Intense Black ink cube (alcohol marker-friendly), extra XPressIt paper, assorted notecards, and a package of gems.  Please take a look:


Additionally, there are three ads-on items (you can click on them to see a larger image)…

So today as part of this fabulous release,  I created a card featuring one of the images from the add-on stamp set Marianne’s Flowers…


I created the background using Dusty Concord Distress ink and a sponge. Then, I splatter water with a small brush, and after it was dried  I adhered the panel over a card base. To create the focal point, I stamped the flower over white card stock with Intense Black Ink (one of my current favorite products) and I colored the image using my Chameleon markers. I love the effect that you can achieve with these markers. You can always use your favorite markers or technique to color these wonderful images 🙂


After that, I fussy-cut the image with scissors. Then, I white-embossed a sentiment (For You Flowers stamp set) on a black paper strip and I adhered the piece along with some decorative tape over the main panel.  I adhered the flower with foam tape and I embellished the card with some black pearls and gemstones.


As always, there will be two prizes during the hop: a kit ($29.99 value), and also a prize package from Marianne consisting of a 3 pack of Sketch markers, a Flowers Line art pack, and 3 Kirarina 2win scented markers. Over $40 retail value. So in order to participate be sure to leave comments on the blogs below , where you will see another wonderful ideas by talented designers using this kit:

  1. Love this. It is beautiful and the coloring is so amazing. Great kit and I love seeing coloring techniques other than Copics, too!

  2. Love love love your card….Purple is my all time favorite color, so this is my favorite, by far!! Gorgeous…..can hardly wait to create when my kits arrives…ordered it today as soon as they were released!!

  3. Beautiful card. Love the background. I like purple but it’s a color I rarely use because I don’t think I have enough variety of purple markers to blend them to look good. Yours is oh so nice.

  4. I love your card and colic coloring. There’s a lot of detail in your clean and simple card. I can’t wait to get my card kit.

  5. Lovely card and the coloring is beautiful. I need to practice more with my Chameleon markers and this is inspiring. Thanks so much for sharing.

  6. Stunning card. Love your background (well, purple IS my favorite color so I may be a bit biased!). Gorgeous coloring.

  7. Just lovely coloring. I wasn’t going to get the extra flowers stamps before but after seeing your card I need to rethink that.

  8. What a striking background! Distress inks are so versitile aren’t they? It really sets off your beautifully coloured lily to its best advantage. Gorgeous work!

  9. Wow your coloring on that flower and the leaves is fantastic!! The background with the water drops just puts this card over the top. So nice!!

  10. I love you already because you used purple. Your card is AMAZING but I have to really thank you for featuring purple! I’m hoping that the scrappy world will catch on more to it!!
