Hero Arts: Hero Kids Monsters Release, Blog Hop and Giveaway

Hi everyone!
Welcome to a special Hero Kids release, a super fun Hero Kids Monster kit!!!! Do you have kids? Or you just like monsters? This kid is perfect for you and your kids and there are so many possibilities. The kit content is below! 
Also we are celebrating the release with a hop and a give away (details on bottom). So...if you are following the hop you should have arrived from Dana Joy 's blog and your next stop is Pocono Pam
Be sure to visit all the blogs for super fun projects.

I decided to use one of the printed scenes and color it with alcohol based markers. Once colored I added details with white gel pen such as polka dots, stripes etc. Once I was satisfied with the look I laminated it and trimmed it. Used scissors to round the corners so they are not sharp and poky ;) You can also use corner rounder punch if you have one. 
Next I stamped the monsters from the Monster Ink 'n' Stamp Tub  on Dove White card stock with black ink. I added packing tape on the back to reinforce it. Then colored the little monsters using alcohol markers and fussy cut them. Next I ran them through sticker maker with repositionable adhesive. 
And have a fun scene to place the little monsters and move them around and provide hours of fun for little ones. My 5yo loved this! 
Scroll down for the full blog hop list, supplies and giveaway details! 


Pre-order the Kids Monster Kit today! Once sold out, the kit will be gone. The kit and any items ordered with the kit will ship together starting October 9, at the same time as our upcoming October My Monthly Hero Kit.

Crafting is a great way to teach creative play, get to know colors and color properties, inspire imagination, and much more. Non-toxic and child-safe Inks are not ideal for kids 5 and younger as they can stain clothing and may require multiple washes if they get on skin.

I have couple cards to share today. The first one uses the new Chase Me background building stamp. I used my MISTI to stamp it couple times and to create ombre effect. I used Bellini, Coral Cabana and Samba inks. Once stamped I trimmed the stamped area to 3 3/4" x 5" and set aside. I die cut the Hello word die from white and black card stock (the black one is die cut 3 times and the die cuts are stacked). Stamped the sentiment on black and embossed in white. 
Assembled the card.

For the second card I used the same Hello die along with the branch die and the Floral stencil. I used Distress oxides and Gel Press along with the stencil to create the background. Once the background was dry cut it down to 4" x 5 1/4" and adhere to white note card. Add the die cuts to finish it off.
