This is what the September kit looks like.
Aren't the stamps just beautiful!! And I'm loving the leafy oval die!
I spent some time this weekend playing with my new goodies, and here are 2 cards I made so far.
The first one uses only stamps from this kit.
Hero Arts MMH September Kit // Fabriano Pre-Folded Watercolor Paper // Versafine Onyx Ink // Ranger Clear Embossing Powder // Ranger White Embossing Powder // Versamark Ink // Tumbled Glass Distress Ink // Black Card Stock by Stampin Up // Piercing Kit by Stampin Up (retired)
I first heat embossed the vase using my Versafine Onyx ink pad and clear embossing powder. Then I stamped and heat embossed the floral stem from the Hero Arts September kit (with a post it note covering the vase). I used the Daniel Smith watercolors and the little brushes that came with the kit to paint the image. I wanted to add a little color to the background, so I cut out the shape of the floral branch and vase using the dies from the kit and I placed them over the image as a mask.
I splashed some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink onto the background by making a little puddle on my craft mat using the ink spritzed with water and then patted the card stock onto the mat.
The sentiment is part of the stamp kit, this time I used Versamark Ink and white embossing powder for stamping and heat embossing on black card stock. Stamped, colored and cut out the leave and added it to the card with a glue dot. The paper piercing was done with an old piercing kit by Stampin Up.

For my next card I only used the leafy oval frame from the My Monthly Hero stamp kit. Love how it frames my cute Penny Black.
Penny Black Sweet You // Hero Arts MMH September Kit // Distress Inks: Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge, Aged Mahogany // Bristol Vellum Paper // Versafine Onyx Ink // Ranger Clear Embossing Powder // Zig Clean Color Markers // Zig Detailer Brush // Scotch ATG Glue Gun
I started out by die cutting the leafy oval shape from September Hero Arts kit with my Big Shot machine on white card stock. I then used some distress inks to ink up the die cut (Spiced Marmalade, Rusty Hinge and Aged Mahogany were used). The cute image from the Penny Black set Sweet You and was stamped on Bristol Vellum Paper. I used a mix of Daniel Smith colors from the September kit and a couple of Zig Clean Color Markers for the skin tones. Would you believe I forgot (again!) to color the quills part of the hedgehog - I usually leave his tummy white - and just now as I type this I am noticing. Guess I can always color them later :-)

Below is a little more info in case anyone is interested in this kit. The September kit is now available for purchase while supplies last.
If you'd like to sign up for a subscription box and receive a kit monthly, your subscrition will start with the October kit (last year's October kit was Christmas themed!) But there is no way knowing yet what the October stamp kit this year will look like!
There are options for monthly subscrition, 3-months or 6 months subscriptions. I am signed up for the monthly subscription, with this option you can cancel anytime before the 15th of the month if you no longer want to receive the kit, otherwise the kit will auto ship at release time. At this time you will have the the option of adding any additional stamps from that month's release and everything ships free with the kit (within the US).
There were some beautiful additional sets released this month, but I didn't get any extras. Hero Arts does ship their kits an add-ons internationally as well, but shipping charges apply.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you're having a fabulous day! I woke up with neck pain today so I need to get my heating pad out. And hopefully I'll get some relief before my Pilates class, can't skip that today - I skipped too many over the summer!
