Hero Arts April My Monthly Hero + Giveaway!

Hi Stampers!  
Happy Monday! And welcome to another My Monthly Hero release. Hope you are following the blog hop and finding a lot of inspiration, as well as enjoying all the ideas. If you are following the hop along, you have probably arrived from Nichol's blog and your next stop will be the amazing Kathy (you don't want to miss either of their creations!)

Let's take a look at this months kit. The kit this month is called Fiesta! 


This month's kit includes:
6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
20 Coordinating Frame Cuts Dies
1 Ornate Floral Border Die
3 Reactive Ink Cubes (Fiesta Red, Fiesta Teal and Fiesta Yellow
3 6"x18" Sheets Unryu Paper (Assorder Colors)
This kit is valued at $70, but is an incredible deal at $34.99.
Also, there are some terrific, optional add-on products this month - Three new stamp sets with coordinating frame cuts, one background bold print, one Confetti die, one border die, two fancy dies, one paper layering die and one new liquid watercolor color
I had so much fun making the card and playing with the main kit and all the little things in it (paper and reactive ink cubes).  
For my first card I used the Pinata, stamped with Intense black, colored with Copics and cut it out. Then cut strips from the paper in the kit and created fringes, then adhered to my white panel. Stamped the sentiment and adhered the Pinata. Then assembled the card. 





For my next card, I again used the main kit. I stamped the images (the cactus is two stamps and some masking) colored with Copics and cut them out. I drew eyes and mouth on the cactus with black pen.
On piece of white card stock I masked off a circle and used the reactive ink cubes from the kit to do some ink blending. Sprinkled some water and lifted it up with paper towel.  I stamped the sentiment and assembled my card. 



For my next card I created a scene and colored the background again with my copics, stamped the sentiment and adhered the frame die cut (from the kit) 


For my next card I used the Paper Layering Pinata die and the main kit (for the sentiment) using sticky notes I masked parts of the Pinata and did ink blending with the reactive ink cubes from the main kit. To get green, orange and purple/blue I blended two colors on top of each other. I applied some Crystal Lacquer pen to add more interest. 




And I couldn't resist using the Cinco de Meow and It's Fiesta Time. I stamped the cat and colored with copics. I created ink blended background using the inks from the main kit. Created window using the Circle Frame cuts. Stamped the sentiment from "It's Fiesta Time" set and assembled my card.



And last but not . the least, Another card using "It's Fiesta Time" I stamped the dog and colored with copics then cut him out. Next I used sentiment from the main kit and stamped it with Versamark on black  card stock and embossed with detail white embossing powder. I cut the Papel Picado die from white and adhered on white card base. I assembled my card by using vellum circle under the main image. Added Champagne sequins for extra interest

Ilina I was totally blown away by your masterful colouring of these images from the April HA's kit. The first card with the fiesta paper and pinata is so awesome. Luv, luv, luv it. Then to scroll down and see card after card each topping the previous one, is unbelievable. You truly have amazing colouring skills and your designs and techniques are so inspiring. Thanks so much for sharing your many, many talents.

I'm trying to decide which card is my favorite and just can't. They are also so much fun. Genius idea to use the clear drops on the piñata die cut - I was wondering how to make those lines in the face stand out just a bit more and you hit on a fantastic idea! Stopping here today is truly a FIESTA! Great job!
