My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway

The new My Monthly Hero kit has just been released and it will be available as of TODAY June 8th 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. Please remember that you have the option to subscribe and receive the kit monthly and never miss one.  

As you know, every state in this country is taking steps to get back to normal at their own pace, so I am sharing a Hero statement that I would like to share with you:

“We are working on restarting our operations in a safe manner, bringing back our production and shipping teams with social distancing, and keeping our warehouse cleaned under the strictest standards. We are first focusing on all of the orders in-house for all of our wonderful and patient customers, subscribers, and international customers, and hope to get back to regular shipping times once we are through what was delayed. We estimate June kits and add-ons will begin shipping on Friday, June 19, after all previous orders have gone out.”

Now, going back to the fabulous MMH of June, this one features a 4 x 6″ stamp set and a 6″x6″ cling stamp along with dies and other great products perfect to create amazing projects for Summer, take a look:

The kit includes: 4″ x 6″ Clear Stamp Set, 6″ x 6″ Northern Lights Cling Stamp, 3 Fancy Scene Dies, 10 Coordinating Frame Cuts, 2 5.5″ x 8.5″ Sheets of Black Handmade Watercolor Paper,  Glow In The Dark Lacquer Pen, Shiny Silver Stars. The value of this kit is $74, but it can be yours for only $34.99… so this is really a good deal! 

This month, there also some wonderful Add-On products, and with some of those, I created two cards that I am sharing with you today. My first card features Color Layering Howling Wolf Stamp set, Color Layering Howling Wolf Frame Cuts and two Fancy Dies from the main kit. I want to point out that the HA Color Layering stamps work amazingly well with the Misti Mini Hero Black, so keep the great tool in mind when you get any of the HA Color Layering stamps…

I used my Misti Mini Hero Black to stamp the wolf and Moon. I used three different colors for the wolf (Soft Brown, Soft Granite, and Intense Black) and two for the moon (Soft Vanilla and Soft Brown). The image is so nice with many details that make it so real!

For the background I used two of the Fancy dies included in the main kit. The mountains were simply die cut from light gray cardstock and the rocks from brown cardstock. This die is actually the die that has a light house, but I trimmed off the light house with scissors and I only used the bottom part as the base for the wolf. The rest, a dark sky, a white embossed sentiment and some sequins.

My second card features three Add-On products: Shine Bright Stamp set, Shine Bright Frame Cuts and the Shooting Star Stencil. Take a look:

For this card I created a subtle background using liquid colors and shaving cream. Then, I used the Shooting Star stencil along with modeling paste to create a dimensional impression of the stencil. I finished it up with some sparkle silk.

The pretty mermaid and dolphin were stamped with different colors of ink also using my Misti Mini Hero Black. I love this tool because you can create ombre effects so easily, and once you have it you want to use it all the time! Finally, I simply included a sentiment over a circle shape, and some sequins.

  3. Mariana I love the colours & design you used for the Howling Wolf card. It is fabulous! I also like the shooting stars on the second card with the other soft colours. I’d love, love, love to win this kit as it represents so much of the area I live in & I’d use it over & over again.

  4. Your cards are beautiful Mariana! I especially like your Wolf scene card, and that you share your favorite color combos for your cards. Every little tip is great for inspiration, especially during those dry times. The extra tips really help get the old creative juices flowing!

  5. Love your cards! I am so looking forward to getting this kit! Great idea for the rocks by trimming off the lighthouse.

  6. Your cards are lovely, thanks for sharing! You chose such lovely colors for your wolf and, the shaving cream background is over the top soft and pretty.

  7. Wonderful cards. The Shine Bright set is one of my favorites from the add-ons to this kit. My granddaughter would be thrilled to get that card.
