Hello and welcome back. Today I wanted to share a post including the cards I made using the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero January 2018 kit. I previously shared the unboxing and the first card I made with the add on Confetti die.
I think I mentioned before that I was afraid it would be difficult to be “unique,” with this set. One of my goals with crafting is to try to do something different, or out of the box. I wasn’t sure I could do that with this kit, especially after the fabulous cards the design team shared. I kept my cards simple, and as you can see they are very similar. I stamped a bunch of panels all at once, in different colors.
This first card was stamped in a light pink Altenew ink (I forgot to keep track :(). The second layer was stamped with Versamark ink and heat embossed with the Hero Arts silver powder from a previous kit. I repeated the heat embossing, so get the thicker, smoother look (I did the same on the first three cards). I matted the white panel on to some of the shimmery pink cardstock included in the kit. It’s beautiful! I also used the cardstock for the sub sentiment from the kit, and double heat embossed it. I adhered it to the card with foam tape. I added some Clear Sparkle Confetti sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.
For this card, I stamped the first layer in Delicata Pink Simmery ink, and the second layer was double embossed, as previously mentioned. I used MFT’s small banner from the Hearts in a Row Vertical set, and the sub sentiment is from MFT’s From the Heart. I added a sliver of MFT Silver Sparkle cardstock to the banner, and some Silver jewels from Studio Katia. The card base is Gina K Design’s Bubblegum Pink.
The first layer on this card was stamped in a Altenew’s Sea Breeze ink. The sub sentiment is again from MFT’s From the Heart, and I used a banner from the Hearts in a Row Vertical set. The jewels are from Lucy’s Cards and the card base is MFT’s Snow Cone.
For this card, I stamped the first layer in the ink from the kit (Royal Red) and the second layer in Altenew’s Jet Black. I added a heart cut out from MFT’s Wild Cherry cardstock, and stamped with a sub sentiment from From The Heart in Versafine ink and embossed. I added the little triple heart stamp from Concord and 9th’s Love and Hugs, and the jewels are Lucy’s Cards. The card base is more Wild Cherry.
Of course I had to stamp this on Gina K’s In the Navy cardstock and emboss in gold. I used Delicata’s White Shimmer ink on this one. I cut out a bunch of little hearts from Concord and 9th’s Hearts and Love in MFT’s Gold Foil cardstock. I like this set because it cuts out a bunch of hearts at one time. The card base is Gina K’s Kraft.
Bonus card! I used the left over panel from my first card with the Window on Love Confetti Fancy Die. I cut some more out of heavy weight white cardstock and layered them together. I cut out a heart from vellum using Hero Arts’ nesting hearts, as an anchor for the sentiment. The sentiment is from From the Heart, and I used the fishtail banners again. I embellished it with some of the leftover hearts.
If I didn’t specifically mention the card base, it was made with 110 lbs Neenah Classic Crest Solar White.
Whew, that was a lot of cards! And, posted just in time to receive the February kit!
Thanks for stopping by!
