January My Monthly Hero Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Hi Stampers! 
Happy Monday! And welcome to another My Monthly Hero release.  Hope you are following the blog hop, and if you are already tired, don't worry you are almost to the end. There are only 2 more stops after me, but trust me you don't want to miss them. The best comes last. 

This month's kit is called Layered Love. And if you are like me, you will fall in love with the font of the stamps of this kit. It's perfect for Valentine's day, anniversary, friendship etc. For me is like knocking two birds with one stone, as our anniversary is in February (10 days after Valentine's day). Let's take a look at the main kit




Kit Contents:
4" x 6" Layered on Love Clear Stamp Set
Four Coordinating dies
4 ink cubes (Passion Flower, Navy, Red Royal and Mulled Wine)
2 5"x7" Shizen decorative paper
1 5.5"x8.5" Stardream Coral Cardstock
1 5.5"x8.5" Stardream Rose Quartz Cardstock
1 5.5"x8.5" Stardream Kunzite Cardstock
Heart Sequins Mix 1.5 oz
Pink Prisma Embossing Powder 0.5 oz

The value of the kit is nearly $62, but it is sold at $34.99.

There are also some amazing  add-on products this month - 3 clear stamp sets with coordinating Frame Cuts, 4 woodblock stamps, one Paper Layering die, one Fancy Die. You will also find a DIY calendar kit and Original and Mini MISTI stamping tools in the Hero Arts store today! And this time I can't pick a favorite because I love them all!!!! 


Now, you have probably arrived here from Libby's blog, and if you haven't trust me you don't want to miss her amazing projects. So go back to her blog or start from the beginning(the Hero Arts blog) and if you arrived here from her blog, then you are on the right track and your next stop will be Clare's blog(and you don't want to miss her project, either).

I am starting with two projects I had shared over the Hero Arts blog using the main kit. So head over there for complete details for the following two cards. But don't you love that intricate heart die from the kit? 

For my first card I used the main kit. I stamped the "&" with Strawberry bold ink, then the 2nd step with Versamark and embossed with Gold. As well as  the you and me sentiments. I created shaker card using the sequins and the pretty papers from the kit. 



For my second card I used the Bouquet wood mount stamp along with a sentiment from the Color Layering rose. I stamped with Intense Black ink and colored with my copics. Then stamped the sentiment on black layering paper and embossed with white embossing powder. Assembled my card and added some Nuvo Drops for finishing touch.



For my next card I used the Love birds stamp and cut set. I stamped the birds on Arches watercolor paper and colored with Zig clean color real brush pens, then die cut them. I created my background using some Daniel Smith watercolors, stamped and embossed the sentiment and assembled my card. 



For the next two card I used the Love Bandit set. I created two different shaker cards one using white tulle and the second one classic shaker card using acetate. Isn't that raccoon the cutest? 






And for my final card I used the Color Layering Rose set along with the Happily Ever After wood mount stamps. I used Cotton Candy, Rose Madder and Gold embossing powder for the roses and Fresh Lawn and Gold embossing powder for the leaves.
