Hero Arts June My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop and GIVEAWAY

Hello all!! It’s release day and oh boy this month’s Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit is simply fintastic.๐Ÿ˜‰ Head under the sea with the June My Monthly Hero release. A beautiful mermaid greets you, with hair flowing and tail shimmering. She’s accompanied by a colorful fish and jelly, with seagrass and coral surrounding her. Pearls are an accent to this kit, with an image, messages, and embellishments uniting the theme. The kit is rounded out with a Reactive Ink palette and brush, perfect for watercoloring the images or creating gorgeous underwater backgrounds.

Kit Contents:

  • 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
  • 8 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • Mermaid Reactive Palette Ink Pad
  • Self-adhesive Pearl Gems
  • Water Flow Brush

Kit Value: $72.00 Kit Cost: $34.99

The first card I’m sharing features this incredible kit! Of course I couldn’t resist coloring that stunning mermaid and she quickly became the focal image of my card.

To create this card I first stamped the images in INTENS-ified Black Ink onto white cardstock. I then copic colored all my images and then die cut them out with the matching dies.

I then ink blended an A2 top-folding card base made from Paradise cardstock with Blue Raspberry, Blue Hawaii and Purple Galaxy. Next, I stamped the card front with a sentiment from the stamp set in INTENS-ified Black Ink.

I then adhered the images to the card front with foam adhesive. Lastly I finished the card by adding one of the adhesive pearls to the shellfish.

My next card features the beautiful Looking Glass Pearl Die Set.

To create this card I die cut three A2 panels of white cardstock with the three Looking Glass Pearl dies. I then ink blended the images with several Reactive Inks (Fruit Punch, Green Apple, Key Lime Fizz, Taffy, Creamsicle, Grape Slush) and Pumpkin Pie Ink. I used simple masks that I created with post-it notes and the dies to ink blend the different plants, sections of the shell and the ground different colors.

Next, I ink blended the background onto the card front of an A2 top-folding white card base with Splash, Blue Hawaii and Pumpkin Pie ink. I then adhered the three panels to the card front with foam adhesive. Next, I die cut a some holographic paper with the shell/pearl layer of the the Looking Glass Pearl Die set. Then I cut out the pearl image away from the rest of the shell, pressed the backside of the pearl with the rounded bottom of a paint brush to make the pearl appear convexed and then adhered it to the card front.

Lastly I finished the card with a stamp and white heat-embossed sentiment from the June My Monthly Hero Kit.


We will give away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, June 12th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
