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

Hi Stampers!

Happy Monday! And welcome to another My Monthly Hero release. This may be my favorite kit, as it's all about coffee (and tea), so let's take a closer look at this month's kit.
This month's kit includes:
6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
1 3.5" x 4.5" Window Fancy Die
11 Coordinating Frame Cuts
Crystal Clear Lacquer Pen 0.5 fl. oz.
White Puff Embossing Powder 0.5 oz.
2 5.5" x 8.5" Sheets of Coffee & Tea Hand Dyed Decorative Paper
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 three clear stamp sets, three coordinating Frame Cut sets, one Stamp and Cut set, one Frame FamcyDie, two Bold Prints background cling stamp, one wood block (AMAZING one) stamp and another new addition to our Liquid Watercolors line - Cocoa! You can also purchase all of the add-ons as a bundle, at a savings to you.



I have few cards for you today and videos using the main kit. For my first card I used my MISTI and the coffee cup from the kit to stamp it several times on white panel, I colored the cup using Warm Gray Copic markers and using Reverse Masking technique I ink blended the coffee using Cup O'Joe and Caramel ink pads and the "Life Changing" Blending brushes I recently discovered. Stamped the foam images using Unicorn white craft ink. Watch the video below to see how this card came to be.


For my second card I used the fancy die that comes in the kit and cut it out from Canson Mi Tientes paper and colored with Prismacolor pencils. Next created the background using Antiqua, Tide Pool and Soft Pool inks. Watch the video below to see how I created the background




For this card I did bunch of masking using my MISTI and kept it simple. Again, watch the video below to see how all the masking was done. 




Last but not the least, the highlight of this card is the latte foam I created using the Lacquer Pen and white puff embossing powder. After I stamped the foam in Caramel, I added lacquer pen and then white puff embossing powder. Then heat it up with my heat tool until it creates the foam effect. I will have video tonight!
