Welcome to the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero for July 2022. You should have arrived here from Channin’s blog.We’re serving up tropical summer vibes with our July My Monthly Hero release! This month’s kit features a flock of flamingos in HeroScape form. Layer the included inks to easily stamp the gorgeous birds, and create a scene with water below and clouds above. Your recipient will be tickled pink when they receive your card, embellished with the colorful gems or Teal Hero Pearls that round out the kit.
The kit contains the following:
• 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
• 7 Coordinating Frame Cuts
• 5 Ink Cubes (Cotton Candy, Peony, Azalea, Arctic, Paradise)
• Self-Adhesive Pink & Teal Gems
• Teal Hero Pearls (0.6 oz)
So let’s start with my card. I trimmed down a piece of Hero Arts Dove White cardstock and blended Hero Arts Mist and Aegean inks to create this pretty background for my flamingos to rest on. Adding the sparkly gems from the kit really anchors my birds.
A tutorial was made for you today. You can watch it here or over on my Youtube channel mzdanajoy.
My bonus card for today is featuring the new Hero Arts Peacock Die. How fancy is this little one? This die allowed me to create a rainbow feather feature for my peacock. Setting it onto Hero Arts Pitch Black cardstock and tucking him into a piece of Hero Arts Kiwi cardstock really made it pop. A simple sentiment heat embossed with Hero Arts White Embossing Powder went perfectly on the kiwi cardstock. I used a .10 white gelli roll pen to add some waves and dots around the edges of the cardstock.
Pre-order your kit today – we estimate kit shipping will begin Friday, July 8th and continue throughout the following week. We will give away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop.
