May 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit

Easy peasy lemon squeezy, my friends! Stamp kit images, in color, on Dove White cardstock. Colors featured are Ultra Pink, Orange Soda, Lemon Yellow and Aegean

You can find a full list of project supplies HERE.

Stamp sentiment in Black Dye ink onto a Dove White A2 panel (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″). Add needle and thread stamp to end of message for a fun swoop. Use kit included dies to cut each image and pop all but one in place with dimensional adhesive. Adhering one flat takes the interest level up a notch. Complete card by applying finished panel to folded card base.

Scissors cross all crafty boundaries and the kit included set is just darling! This card is simple enough, but a touch more time consuming with die cutting multiples and aligning them each just right. So worth it for me!

A full project supply list is linked HERE.

Die cut 11 scissors from Pebble cardstock and one from Polished Gold. Align carefully and adhere flat to scant A2 Dove White panel. Place gold scissors last and lift one blade to tuck the Black Dye stamped Azalea sentiment strip under. Pop finished panel with foam tape and adhere to Pitch Black mat, then to folded card base.

This little cutie is the die cut leftover from the project I made for the Hero Arts launch post. You can find the instructions and ink colors for that HERE, and/or see an image of it if you scroll on down to the next card in this post. The heart shaped yarn ball just might be my favorite single element from the kit, so a 2 for 1 project was ideal! Simply adhere it flat to an Infinity Tag with black die cut kit knitting needles tucked in place. Stamp sentiment and add twine.

A full project supply list is linked HERE.

Die cut Infinity Tag from Smooth Bristol cardstock and stamp kit element paint tube in watercolor friendly black dye ink. Color tube with Pale Gray Zig Clean Color Watercolor Marker and paint itself with Persian Green. Add color liberally up the card and wet with water to create extended pool of color. Dry naturally for best results. Use kit included embossing ink cube to white heat emboss kit sentiment on Pitch Black cardstock and pop into place. Attach twine.

I’m loving these little tags for a multitude of things so I am making an intentional goal to create more with leftover elements from other projects!

A full project supply list is linked HERE.

I created this card, with the kit, for the Countdown to Creativity over on the Hero Arts blog. You can find all the details for it HERE.
