Hero Arts | You’re Always In My Heart. January My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello all and thank you for stopping by today to help celebrate the launch of January My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts (more about the kit and blog hop below).

Let me start by saying – January kit and the add-ons are beyond inspiring. I am all in Valentine’s Day mood now (although I know it is way too early for many of you), and I once I started playing with these products I couldn’t put them down. You might have already seen one of my projects on Hero Arts blog, if not – here’s direct link.

CARD DETAILS

I was all about Clean & Simple when I was stamping this card. I have a thing for any kind of “mail” stamps, so the first thing I stamped was the round postage stamp with the little pink flowers inside. I used Hero Arts Charcoal and Bubble Gum inks for these – love the soft pink + gray color combination. I also added “Please Deliver By Feb 14”.

The focal point of this card however, is the painted-like “Love You” stamped in light pink. I love that the letters are all caps here and I simply adore the painted, brushstroke-like look. I only added “You’re Always In My Heart” in gray below.

After I trimmed my white panel slightly I adhered it onto an A2 top folding light pink card base and adhered several sparkling clear sequins. This is probably one of the simplest (and quickest) cards I’ve made in a long time.

    1. Simple, neat & inspiring. Your realization of these cards with the new Hero Arts monthly kit is simply beautiful.

    1. Love this combination of colors and the simplicity/perfection of your tender card! You also master the art of placing sequins and other embellishments in the perfect place every time… I struggle for a few minutes, then I remove all embellishments and convince myself that it looks better that way :).
