January My Monthly Hero Kit Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY

January My Monthly Hero Kit Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY

Hello friends!! It’s time for a new My Monthly Hero Release!! This month’s new kit is just so gorgeous and happy!!

Kit Contents:

  • 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
  • Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • Honeycomb Window Die
  • Honey Lacquer Pen
  • 6 5.5″ x 8.5″ Sheets of Paper (2 each in Pale Yellow Glitter, Black Glitter and Gold Brillanca)

Plus all the add-on products are also so fantastic!

I used the kit to create a colorful watercolored card.

To create this card I first, stamped the flowers from the January kit in Versafine Onyx Black ink onto an A2 panel of watercolor paper. Next I used Tombow Dual Brush Pens (725, 685, 126, 379, 969) to watercolor the flowers in.

When I finished coloring the flowers I then watered many of the similar colors plus a yellow (725, 685, 126, 379, 025) and then painted the background. When the panel was dry I then added a shadow around flowers with a couple gray Tombow Dual Brush Pens (N89 & N75). Next, I stamped a sentiment onto the panel and then adhered it onto the front of an A2 top-folding card base.

I then stamped a bee in Versafine Onyx Black onto a scrap of watercolor paper, watercolored it (025, 933, 451) and then die cut it with the matching die. Lastly I finished the card by adhering the bee to the card front with foam tape.


We will give away one $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, December 10th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

  1. That is such a beautiful floral card. I just love the color combinations and water coloring. Looking forward to practicing my water coloring. Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. This kit is just what i need to get through the next month. Hero Arts has made me happy! My order is in so if I win I have friends.

  3. Beautiful watercoloring. I like that the center is bolder and then there is a lighter flower edge, then the coordinating background color. This is beautiful! So much prettier than what I call a bleeding background. I like this very much!

  4. I love this cheery spring card! The colorful striped background is perfect & I love that fat little bee. A great release!!

  5. I like the soft look of the watercolour swipes & the way they blend with the colours in the flowers. I also like the more realistic look of the branch that holds those lovely flowers.

  6. This may be my favorite kit ever. Gorgeous flowers, adorable bees–so many possibilities. Your card is gorgeous.
