Hero Arts’ February My Monthly Hero Kit Release and Blog Hop

Hello friends!! It’s finally release day and I’m so excited to share with you the new kit and all the incredible add-on products! If you have been following along with the countdown then you have probably noticed the surrealist theme of this release. First let’s take a look at the kit.

Kit Contents:

  • 6” x 8” Clear Stamp Set
  • 15 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • 2 Sheets of Black Watercolor Paper (5.5″ x 8.5″)
  • Watercolor Dot Dream Palette (18 Dots)
  • Water Flow Brush

Kit Value: $75.00; Kit Cost: $34.99

I can’t tell you how much fun I have been having creating cards with all these images!! The first card I’m sharing features products only from the kit.

To create this card I first stamped my the ornate frame from the February My Monthly Hero Kit in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto Bristol paper several times. I then watercolored the images in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens and then die cut the frame out with the matching die and fussy cut the butterflies out.

Next, I created the rainbow by first creating a template out of a scrap of cardstock. Then I used that template to cut stripes of Hero Hues colored cardstock. I then splattered the front of an A2 black card base with white watercolor paint and then adhered my strips to the card front.

Next I adhered the images to the card front with foam adhesive and then finished the card with a white heat-embossed sentiment that I fussy cut out.

My next card features the beautiful and detailed dies from the Dream Accessories Fancy Dies Set.

To create this card I first ink blended an A2 panel and the front of an A2 top-folding white card base with several Reactive Inks (Taffy, Lemon Drop, Splash & Blue Hawaii) and INTENS-ified Black Ink to create two galaxy backgrounds.

I then splattered white watercolor over the backgrounds to create the look of stars. When the paint had dried I then die cut the A2 panel with the new Cloud Window Fancy Die. Then I adhered the cloud frame to the card front with foam adhesive.

Next, I die cut the ship, moon and star out of white cardstock using the Dream Accessories Fancy Dies. I then ink blended the die cuts with Lemon Drop Reactive Ink and then adhered them to the card front with foam adhesive. Lastly, I stamped and white heat-embossed a sentiment from the February My Monthly Hero Kit onto a scrap from my die cut glaxay background. Then fussy cut it out and adhered it to the card front.


Hero Arts is will give away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, February 13th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

  1. Hi, Channin – I was hoping that one of you would use the butterflies! That card is divine. And that galleon!! It reminds me of a spooky episode of Scooby Doo!
    Love both!

  2. You are so creative, I can see your Imagination running in 2nd gear. I am in love with the ship card and especially the cloud window fancy die! Beautiful!

  3. Rainbows and butterflies combined. What a splash of colour! Loved how your use of a galaxy background to give the ship flight in your second card!
