Hero Arts: July 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

This month's kit includes:

6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
10 Coordinating Frame Cuts
1 4.25" x 5.5" Fancy Die
3 Ink Cubes (Red Reactive, Blue Reactive, Unicorn White Pigment)
3 4" x 6" Chipboard Postcards

This kit is valued at $70, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities - grab yours before they are gone!

We also have several optional add-on products this month four clear stamp sets, three coordinating Frame Cut sets, one Stamp and Cut set, one Frame FamcyDie,one  Bold Prints background cling stamp, and another new addition to our Liquid Watercolors line - Pink! You can also purchase all of the add-ons as a bundle, at a savings to you.

I am starting with a couple cards I had over on the Hero Arts Blog this weekend! All the details can be found there 


Next up are few cards using the main kit and lots of strips. Please watch the video below on how I made these cards and how you can get most of your scraps.






Then, I have this cute County Fair Pig card that I did white on white. I started by stamping the image on white card stock with intense black ink. Colored with copics and die cut. Next I die cut bunch of clouds from vellum and adhered to my white panel. I stamped the sentiment and adhered the little pig. EMbellished with enamel dots and adhered to snow note card.



Last but not the least is a card using the Ornate Carousel and the County Fair bold prints.

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 Emily's blog and your next stop will be the amazing Jennifer McGuire (you don't want to miss either of their creations!)
