My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy Monday everyone! Hero Arts has always been one of my favorites stamp companies so I am very excited to be part of the My Monthly Hero Blog Hop this month! This new wonderful kit will be available TODAY March 4th at the Hero Arts store, but be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone. Kits begin shipping from Hero Arts on Friday, March 8th. I want to point out that you have the option to subscribe and receive the kit monthly and never miss one.

This fabulous kit contains: a 6″x8″ clear stamp set, a set of 27 coordinating Frame Cuts dies that match the stamp set, a 5.5 x 4.25 Aquarium Fancy Die, three Water Reactive Ink Cubes (Sea Salt, Sea Glass, Blue Water) and Blue and Green Droplets. The kit value is $75.99, an amazing deal at $34.99

I created a couple cards using the great products included in the kit, here is the first one:

I began by die cutting the Aquarium Fancy Die from green cardstock, then I placed it over a watercolor background just to see where I wanted to stamp some images. So I used the Sea Glass and Blue Water inks to stamp a few plants, a turtle and a small fish.

I also white-embossed the sentiment. I adhered the Aquarium frame over the stamped stamped panel and onto a folded green card. To complement the card I stamped the jellyfish image with Blue Water ink and die cut it with its matching die, I then adhered over the card using some foam tape. Of course I also included some yummy droplets as the final touches for this card.

The second card is similar to my first one but in this case I used the inks for the background. I want to point out that the ink cubes that are included in this kit are reactive to water so they are just perfect to create amazing backgrounds. I use a round small sponge dauber to apply the two colors over a white panel, and then I simply flicked water over with a thin brush.

As you can see is the same concept of the first card, just that I this case I used only the center part of the Aquarium die to make a frame. I have to say that this kit is a blast! Lots of images and clever sentiments.

As part of this blog hop, Hero Arts is giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. The giveaway closes Sunday, March 10th at 11:59pm, and the winner will be announced the following week on the Hero Arts blog.

  9. Such pretty cards Mariana! This kit is my favourite of all I’ve seen. I’m an “ocean” girl at heart. The three blue water reactive inks they’ve included are perfect for underwater scenes, although I must say I’m quite taken with the yellow, blue & green on your first card. Thanks so much.
