Hello friends!! It’s time for Hero Arts‘ My Monthly Hero Release!! Yahoo!! Let me tell you, Hero has done it again!! This month’s kit is incredible!!
This month’s birthday theme is on point!! The main kit comes with many perfectly party themed products including some fun stamps and dies but also confetti and even frosting (colored lacquer)!!
The first card I’m sharing is a no-line watercoloring card created with the stamps and dies included in the main kit.
First, I stamped the background stamp in Soft Vanilla Shadow Ink on an A2 panel of Bristol paper. I then colored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens. Once I finished coloring the images I then stamped the cake on a scrap of Bristol paper in Soft Vanilla and then watercolored it in with my Tombows as well. After I colored the cake I then die cut it out with the matching dies.
Next, I stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment onto the panel. I then stamped the sentiment again but this time slightly off-set in the Soft Vanilla to create a shadow to help the sentiment pop. I then trimmed the panel down an 1/8″ on all the sides and then adhered the panel onto Peony cardstock. I then finished the card by die cutting another cake out and then adhering that unstamped cake behind the stamped and colored cake and then adhering both onto the card front.
My next couple of cards feature some of the incredible add-ons in this release!
For this first card, I first stamped the background garland using the Festive Balloon Stamp Set in a rainbow of reactive ink colors (Taffy, Fruit Punch, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, Pool Party, and Blue Hawaii) on Dove White Cardstock.
Once I stamped the background then trimmed it down to a square (3 7/8″ x 3 7/8″). Next, I stamped and copic colored some images from the Time For Cake Stamp Set in Intens-ified Black Ink on Dove White cardstock. Once I finished coloring the images I then die cut them out with the matching dies.
Next, I adhered the square background panel onto a square card base (4 3/4″ x 9 1/2″, scored at 4 3/4″) made from Dove White cardstock with foam tape. I then finished the card by adhering the copic colored images with foam tape.
For my last card I first die cut seven balloons out of Dove White cardstock using the Festive Balloon Frame Cuts. I then ink blended each balloon with a different reactive ink (Taffy, Fruit Punch, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, Key Lime Fizz, Pool Party, and Blue Hawaii).
Next, I then throughly dried my red balloon with my heat tool and then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment. I then stamped the sentiment again but this time off-set in Soft Granite Shadow Ink. I then smooshed the embossing ink pad over each balloon and then clear heat embossed them all. I then stamped the balloon strings in Soft Granite on a white panel (4″ x 5 1/4″) and then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-fold white card base. Lastly I finished the card by adhering all the balloons with foam tape.
And that’s it!! I hope enjoyed my cards and found some inspiration! 🙂
