Happy Monday, all! I can’t believe it, but 2016 is here. Woot woot! Hero Arts is introducing their January’16 My Monthly Hero Kit today – its a themed one and perfect for Valentine’s Day cardmaking and it also works well for making shaker cards. I myself am not big on shakers, but I couldn’t resist using Lucy’s shaker mix from my kit and made a shaker card.
Instead of using traditional pinks and reds I went with light blue and silver. I think this color combo makes a great alternative. This kit includes a few fun and unique dies that allow you to create partially cut elements on your projects, I used the open heart as well as the medium-sized heart with scallops to create my window. I love how these two dies work well together and enhance each other.
For my sentiment I used You Make My Heart Flutter one from the stamp set in my kit and stamped it using two colors of ink – charcoal and than silver, love this effect! I also incorporated all small hearts from the Add-on kit and die cut those out of blue and silver.
My shaker element was created using the sequin mix from my kit, I did however remove the pink sequins and only left the clear in.
The full kit contains two 3×4″ stamp sets, three dies including two paper layering dies, 2 ink cubes, an exclusive mix of sequins created by Lucy Abrams, gorgeous vellum with iridescent speckles, acetate, cards and envelopes. The price for this kit is $29.99. There is also an add-on die set (Valentine word and small hearts) to purchase separately.
The kit goes live in the Hero Arts store on Monday January 4th at NOON eastern. The kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone.
