The Kit includes: 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set, 23 Coordinating Frame Cuts, 1 Greeting Fancy Edge Die, 5 White Postcards, Summer Twilight Palette Reactive Ink Pad. Kit Value: $76.00 Kit Cost: $34.99

So, for today I made two cards. The first one was created using some of the images of the fabulous MMH kit, take a look:

I have to point out that with all those cute images with their matching frames, whatever images you chose, your card is going to be awesome. These images are ideal to color, so in this case I used markers. Additionally, I added some Glaze/Sparkles details to the images, just to make them a bit more fun.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission from Hero Arts at no cost for you. Thanks!

I selected different colors of HA cardstock to create a colorful striped background. Once I adhered the strips over a white folded card I arranged the stamped images onto the card, to create a little relaxing scene. I finish off my card with a white-embossed sentiment over a black cardstock strip and some sequins.

As in every month, there are also some wonderful Add-On products, and I created a second card with a couple of those, check it out:

Card #2 showcases a cute stamp set called Bubble Bath and its matching frame cuts. Just like in my first card, I simply stamped the images with black ink and then I colored the images with markers.

Next, I using a 7/8″ square punch I created different colors of squares to create a background for my scene. I adhered the squares onto a white panel to created a tiled rhombus and then, I arranged the stamped images onto it. I complemented this card with a white-embossed sentiment, some sequins and Glaze/Sparkle details.

  3. I loved your cards. I’d love to have a hammock out on my patio. But the bugs are awful, lol. But that would be my dream.

  4. I L❤VE both cards, and I love that you did a masculine and feminine card. Your second card made me want to run in and run a hot bath in my Jacuzzi tub and take a relaxing soak for these old muscles and bones!!!

  5. Mariana—- Love your cards– especially how you made the “backgrounds”. So creative. And I love your coloring and letting us know what colors you used. Thank you so much for the inspiration.

  6. Love how you built this cute little scene up, and that you used the guy image as well as a feminine design. Two different ways to relax..but I’d settle for either one!

  7. Absolutely wonderful cards Mariana! I really like the gradient coloured cardstock you used as a backing for the fellow resting in the lawnchair with a pitcher of some yummy beverage beside him.
    I also adore the squares used to look like tile to ground the bathtub. We used to have a claw foot tub. Many a good deep soaks were had in it. Love this release!

  8. Love your cards! I really love the squares behind the lady in the bath. Hero Arts is fantastic this is another great release!

  9. Brilliant that Hero Arts included so many guy images! I thought retirement when I saw your beautiful card! What a peaceful scene. From macho to zen I love your tub…. loved it when I saw it on the live, especially the tile and lavender colors… brilliant calming color for this relaxing kit. Beautiful cards!

  10. What great cards! I love your use of colour and lots of little images to create your scenes! I just love the bubble bath card!! Yes, please!!! Thanks so much for the great inspiration! Take care! 🙂

  11. I really like this hop. You have a very different style. It is so great to see different things in this hop! Thank you for sharing.

  12. I love how the cardstock “tile” background gives the feeling of being in a tiled bathroom. And I find it to be very manly to see a man snuggling with a cat. Love both of these cards. Love this kit!
