February My Monthly Hero Kit Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hello friends!! It’s time for Hero Arts’ new My Monthly Hero Kit release!! If you are like me and are desperately missing vacations, this month’s kit could help you practice a little escapism!

This month’s theme and is particularly up my alley. One of my favorite places to travel to is Hawaii, specifically Kauai! My husband and I honeymooned there and we also traveled there with my two daughters and the rest of my family a few years ago!! I seriously can NOT wait to get back and it might very well be the first place we vacation once we feel safe doing so again.

I had so much fun creating with this kit and reminiscing about all the amazing places we went, all the wonderful experiences we had! Just look at all the beautiful images.

Kit Contents:

  • 6” x 8” Clear Stamp Set
  • 21 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • Tropical Flower Washi Tape
  • Sand Embossing Powder, 0.5 oz
  • 6 5.5″ x 8.5″ Cardstock Sheets (2 each in Turquoise, Marrs Green, Coral)

Kit Value: $70

Kit Cost: $34.99

One of my favorite things we did when we were in Hawaii was attend a Luau. So I decided to try and recreate the magic of that night with my card!

To create this card I first stamped the background in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto a panel of Dove White cardstock. I then stamped the mountains and water line onto post-it notes to created masks. I then fussy cut my masks, placed a mask over the mountains and then ink blended the sky with Berry Smoothie, Splash, and Blue Hawaii Reactive Inks. When I finished the sky I then placed a second mask along the water line to protect the mountains and sky and then an additional post-it note at the bottom to mask off the beach, then ink blended the water with Splash and Blue Hawaii. Next, I masked off the water and then blended the sand in Soft Vanilla and Soft Brown Shadow Ink.

With my ink blending complete I then copic colored the mountains. Next, I stamped several more images from the kit in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto a scrap of Dove White cardstock. I then copic colored the images and then die cut them out with the matching dies. After I die cut them I arranged them where I wanted them to be in my scene and then colored the borders of the images with copic markers to match the background.

I then adhered the images to my scene and then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the set onto Pitch Black cardstock. Next, I fussy cut the sentiment out. I then adhered a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ panel of Arctic cardstock to the front of an A2 top-folding card base. Lastly, I finished my card by adhering my scene and sentiment to my card front with foam adhesive.


We will give away one $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, February 7th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

  1. Sweet! Love the dancers and lovely scene behind them. They are definitely singing about their wonderful weather and beautiful ocean and flowers.

  2. The wind is howling and the rain is pelting the windows but we have your beautiful card to look at to make us feel warm.

  3. Such a fun card! Attending an authentic luau is on my bucket list. I love the colours you used for your sky, gorgeous!

  4. Coloring the usually white borders is very interesting – I’ll need to try that – it makes your card fun like they were dancing at night!
