Today I am sharing a card made with last month's Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit. And this is actually my first time making something with this kit, it sat on my desk for a few weeks now because I just didn't get the time to use it. Today Hero Arts is releasing their May kit and I am sharing a little info about that at the end of this post.
This Hero Arts kit includes several scenery dies which make wonderful silhouettes and work so well with a distress ink background. I started out by masking the bottom half of my card with post it notes, then using Antique Linen, Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves and Blueprint Sketch Distress Inks/Oxides with an ink applicator tool I created the sunset. The city scene and gondolier were die cut using black card stock and adhered to the card. Some foam tape from this kit was used to adhere the gondolier to the card. Birds, sentiment and "Venetian" cancellation mark are all stamps from this kit, sentiment and birds were stamped with Versafine Clair Nocturne ink and the cancellation mark was stamped with Antique Linen ink. A CAS card that was quick to make! The card base is Hero Arts Dove White 100lb card stock.
If you like this kit then you're in luck, although released in April, it is currently still available here. Remember US orders do qualify for FREE shipping on orders of $50 or more.

Ok, now some info about the May My Monthly Hero Stamp kit. I won't be sharing a card made with this kit as I cancelled my subscription recently and won't be getting this kit, but I do want to continue sharing info for those of you interested and I am sure somewhere in the future I'll be purchasing another kit (they are also available without a subscription while supplies last), but I won't be getting this one.
This is what the May Stamp kit looks like, it's perfect for cards you send to your crafty/artsy friends.
There were also some wonderful add-ons released, availabe HERE as a complete lot or individually HERE. My personal favorite is this cross stitch stamp set...but it might be sold out by the time I place an order...
Thanks so much for visiting! Enjoy the rest of your week!
