Hero Arts: June My Monthly Hero Blog Hop, Video and Giveaway!

Hi Stampers!
Happy Monday! And welcome to another My Monthly Hero release.
Let's take a closer look at this month's kit

Kit Contents:
6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
12 Coordinating Frame Cuts
4 Ink Cubes (Deep Ocean, Summer Sky, Soft Sky, Soft Granite)
Sand Embossing Powder 0.5 oz
Sea Foam Shimmer Spray 1 fl oz
Beach Enamel Stickers
Kit Value: $72
Kit Cost:$34.99

We also have several optional add-on products this month four clear stamp sets, two coordinating Frame Cut sets, one Stamp and Cut set, one Confetti Die, one gorgeous new Frame Fancy Die, two Bold Prints background cling stamps, and another new addition to our Liquid Watercolors line - Dark Teal! You can also purchase all of the add-ons as a bundle, at a savings to you.
I wanted to start first with the card I had yesterday over on the Hero Arts Blog, using the main kit! The sand embossing powder in the kit is amazing and you will see it used again couple more times in the card below. 
Next are couple cards using the main kit along with the Beach Frame Fancy die (this die is to die for, no pun intended) and I have video below for both of the cards (one video) 






For my next card I used Seas the Day Seagulls along with the Wave Sea Confetti die. To make the card you will need to die cut the cover die from pool layering paper, and adhere to pool note card. Stamp the imaged on CP Designs premium white card stock with Intense Black ink and color with copics. Die cut. Die cut a circle from Vellum and apply sand embossing powder. Arrange and adhere your card. 




Last, but not the least is a card using the Seal of Approval set and coordinating dies. I decided to keep this one simple and have the Seal take the center stage. The background is ink blended using: Soft Pool, Tide Pool, Butter Bar and Orange Soda. Supplies are listed bellow. 


Blog Hop Details:
