Hero Arts: October My Monthly Hero Blog Hop and Give Away

Hi Stampers!

Happy Monday! And welcome to another My Monthly Hero release. This months' kit is all about Winter and I love it, even though it's still in the 80s and 90s here in Georgia.
The kit is full of images to build your own scenes and comes with coordinating dies


Kit Contents:
6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
14 Coordinating Frame Cuts
1 Paper Layering Tree Die with Frame

6 5.5" x 8.5" Sheets of Glitter Paper (Silver, Sea Glass, Twilight)
Iridescent Star Embellishments
Iridescent Ink 0.5 fl. oz. (shake well)

Kit Value: $70.00
Kit Cost: $34.99

Here are couple cards I made using the main kit, along with one that I had during the countdown over on the Hero Arts blog













Along with the main kit there are several add ons this month. So, I have few samples with those. 
For my first card I used the  CM309 Peace, Love & Joy set to create very simple card that is easy to mass produce for the holidays. 


Next, I used the  CM306 Color Layering Trimmings to create another simple card that is easy to mass produce, too. 



Last, but not the least is a set of four cards I made using the two new bold prints CG752 Delicate Snowflake Bold Prints and CG753 Graphic Snowflake Bold Prints, along with the CM310 Merry and Bright Messages.




Blog Hop Details:

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 Midgett's Blog  and your next stop will be the amazing Janette (you don't want to miss either of their creations!)

Kit availability and shipping:
