Hero Arts May 2018 Kit Unboxing

Hello! Once again I’m a little late in posting. I wanted to wait until I had a card to share with you, along with the kit unboxing.

Here are the kit contents:

MAY KIT INCLUDES:

► – 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set

► – 13 Coordinating Frame Cuts Dies

► – 2 Leaf Dies

► – 1 Window Fancy Die with Frame

► – 1 Roll Leaf Patterned Washi Tape (Assorted Designs)

► – 5 Ivory Skeleton Leaves

► – 4 5″ x 7″ Sheets 100% Recycled Handmade Hot Pressed Watercolor Paper (140 lb)

► – 1 5.25″ x 6.5″ Tree Swirl Stencil

LIMITED TIME ONLY! Once this product sells out, it will no longer be available. Quantity limited to two kits per household.

With all of the goodies packed into this kit, it’s an incredible value at $34.99. (Contents add up to $75 if bought separately.)

Let’s take a look at the kit.

I haven’t used any of the dies yet, but that tree frame die is awesome.

The stamp style is the silhouettes, like a lot of the kits. I plan on building a tree with the trunk and branches with white heat embossing, and doing an emboss resist with Nuvo Shimmer powders for the A Blog Named Hero May challenge. I was hoping to do it this weekend, but that headache made that difficult.

This is the package with the stencil, handmade watercolor paper, leave skeletons and washi tape.

Here is a better look at the item. The card I made this weekend used the stencil.

I took some Lawn Fawn Black Licorice cardstock and used the tree stencil with Nuvo Moonstone Glitter paste. I added the image of the squirrel, stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed clear.  I had to add the white frame because I messed up the edges, so it’s not exactly what I imagined it would be. The sentiment is from the kit (I really like the sentiments include, especially “with brave wings she flies.” The card base is Gina K Design’s new Tranquil Teal. I stamped one of the branches with Altenew’s Teal Cave on a white envelope to match.

I wish I had more cards to share, but I’m struggling a bit with this kit. I have the heat resist card to make, but not sure what else to do. Do you have any ideas? Let me know in the comments!

Thanks for stopping by!
