The beginning of the month means, that a new wonderful My Monthly Hero kit will be available TODAY July 1st 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 month the kits will begin shipping from Hero Arts on Monday, July 8th. I want to point out that you have the option to subscribe and receive the kit monthly and never miss one.
This kit contains: 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set, fourteen Coordinating Frame Cuts, two Fancy Dies, five Ink Cubes (Dusty Blue, Lime Green, Forest, Cocoa, Sand Stone), four 5.5″ x 8.5″ Sheets of New Hero Hues Premium Cardstock (two of each Meadow and Lapis) and a Blue Pearl Embossing Powder 0.5 oz.
I love the theme of this month’s kit, mountains, forest, fishing, water…. (sigh), so perfect for Summer! Check out the card I created with this kit:
I began by stamping the mountains, forest and dock. It is hard to see in the picture, but I clear-embossed over the stamped images using the large solid images. After that, I used a distress ink to create the sky and water (embossing-resist technique), and of course I flicked a bit of water with a brush. I stamped one of the sentiments included in the stamp set and then, I trimmed out the image, I matted it with the Meadow Premium cardstock and adhered the panel over a white folded card. To finish off this card, I stamped the kids images with Intense Black Ink, die cut them, and adhered them over the card with foam tape.
For this card I used the Forest Sunset Fancy Die upside down to create the forest silhouette behind the bears. I know, I should have used it the other way, but I thought the die was also perfect using it this way too! 😀
Anyway, the images were simply stamped with Intense Black Ink and colored it with markers. I die cut them with their matching dies and I created a cute bonfire scene with them. A sentiment and Journey Glaze details were the final touches for this card.
