Hero Arts March My Monthly Hero Release

Hello friends!! Today I’m joining Hero Arts March My Monthly Hero Release and Blop Hop!! I have to tell you, Hero Arts has done it once again, this kit and release is amazing!!

If you are like me and are pretty much obsessed with all of Hero’s Heroscapes Sets then you must get this month’s kit!! Included in this kit is a gorgeous Heroscape Stamp Set that creates a stunning Japanese garden!


To create this card first I stamped the second layer or details layer for the ground in Emerald Green Shadow Ink onto Meadow cardstock. Next, I die cut the ground out with the matching landscape die. I then ink blended the bottom portion of the ground with Emerald Green ink. Next, I stamped the second layer for the tree first in Taffy Reactive ink and then partially in Rose Madder Bold Ink onto Peony cardstock. I then die cut the tree top out with the matching die. Once die cut, I then ink blended the bottom with Taffy Reactive Ink. Next, I die cut the trunk out of Chestnut cardstock. I then ink blended the trunk with Cup O’ Joe Shadow Ink.


I then stamped an A2 panel of Mist cardstock with the Waves and Clouds Bold Prints stamp in Soft Pool Shadow Ink. Next, I die cut the panel with a circle die from the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies. I then die cut the ground layer with the same circle die and adhered the ground and the tree to the circle. Next, I stamped a sentiment onto the circle in Intenser-ified Black Ink.


I then adhered what remained of the Mist panel onto an A2 top-folding card base. I then adhered a white panel measuring 5 1/2″ x 4 1/8″ onto the card front. I then trimmed off a small portion of the circle with a pair of scissors, then added foam squares and adhered it to the card front.

Next up is a card I created with the Dreams Will Blossom Stamp Set which is part of the add-ons for this release.


First, I stamped the flowers in Intens-ified Black Ink onto bristol paper. I then watercolored the flowers in with several Tombow Dual Brush Pens.

  • Leaves: 126 + 346
  • Petals: 873 +723
  • Center: 725
  • Stamen: 020 + 985


Once colored I then die cut the flowers out with the matching dies. Next, I ink blended at the top and bottom of an A2 top-folding card base made from Peony Cardstock with Taffy Reactive Ink.


I then smooshed ink down onto my works surface, added a small amount of water and then added ink spots. Next, I trimmed some Dove White cardstock to 3″ x 3 3/4″ and then stamped a sentiment in Intensified Black Ink. I then adhered the panel onto the card front and then added the florals with foam squares. Lastly I finished the card with some sequins from the Pink Pop Flower Sequins Mix.

And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed my cards! Be sure to check out the rest of the hop and leave some comments along the way for your chance to win a $50 gift certificate!! Enter by Sunday, March 8th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

  1. Beautiful cards! I wasn’t sure whether I like the waves and clouds background stamp until I saw it used on your first card. Now it’s going on my wish list. Already ordered the kit itself because I was afraid it would sell out.

  2. Thank you for sharing these beautiful cards today! I especially like your first one, with the interesting sky, and now have to have that background stamp!

  3. Beautiful cards. Cherry blossom trees are my favorite trees, so lovely, smell heavenly and this hop all of you have created such amazing creations it has been a relaxing and wonderful way to spend my afternoon. tyfs

  4. Very nice ! I really like the idea of stamping this background in the sky. It’s very pretty and soft. Love the green grass gradient aswell, and the other card is very cute 🙂

  5. I like how you used the circle to focus the attention on your scene. I like the background stamp you used for the sky as well.

  6. Just added the DREAMS WILL BLOSSOM stamp set to my wish list. I liked both cards, but the card made with this set really impressed me.

  7. This kit is amazing and your cards are a wonderful example of the possibilities it offers. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Love these Channin! The die cut tree trunk on the first card looks so cool, and your coloring on the second one is completely gorgeous! Thanks so much for being part of the hop!

  9. I’m so ready for Spring! LOVE the different versions of these GORGEOUS trees!! It would be lovely in a creamy white with pink tips like a Dogwood Tree for Easter. God Bless & the Love of Christ to you all!!

  10. Both cards are splendid but I’m favoring your 2nd one. Beautifully colored florals and background.

  11. Really like the way you’ve done the subtle clouds in the background of the first card. Just adds that extra dimension to the card. Fabulous!

  12. I like both cards, but the second one is my favorite, maybe because you’ve used different images on this one. Like the sentiment, too.

  13. Just beautiful. Love how you used the stamp for the blue sky! Would never have thought of that myself. Thanks

  14. Great ideas & such pretty cards! I really like the additional ink blending on the ground to give more depth etc. Thanks so much!

  15. Hi,
    I can see you had fun with the March My Monthly Hero stamp and die set by Hero Arts.
    I love Asian themed cards,
    I so want to get the Cherry Blossom set, but alas, I am short on money right now, and I can’t get the March Hero Arts before it sells out. Anyway, I enjoy watching how other cardmakers use the set, and maybe at a later time I can get some of the add-ons. Take care,

  16. Gorgeous. I love your cherry tree and the blue wave background! What a terrific idea on the use of the wave stamp!
