Hero Arts: May My Monthly Hero GIVEAWAY + VIDEOs

Hi stampers!

Welcome to the May My Monthly Hero release blog hop. This is yet another kit you don't want to miss!!!
This month's release is all about the act of making and sending handmade cards to the people you care about. And with this kit, the envelope can be just as cheerful as the card inside! Use the stamps in the kit to decorate the envelope. Of course, the kit is versatile enough to both decorate your envelope as well as use the elements to create the card itself. And for an extra touch there are three beautiful metallic Karin markers included in the kit as well. Spread a little love - it's just what the world needs right now.

So lets get started. First up I have 3 cards I made using the kit! For the 2nd card I used the add-on stencil too to create the sun and sun rays and for the third I used the Cloudy Skies die set. 
Watch the video below (or click HERE) (coming shortly as my wifi is kind of slow) to see how these cards came to be!






Kit Contents:
6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
7 Coordinating Frame Cuts
7 Envelope Art Icon Fancy Dies
3 Karin DécoBrush Metallic Markers (Gold, Pink & Blue)
5 White A7 Envelopes
5 White A5 Envelopes

Kit Value: $79.99
Kit Cost: $34.99







Next I have 2 cards I made using the Heart Tree stamp and cut set. Watch the video below to see how I made these two cards! (or click HERE)





Last but not the least, a card using the May fancy die I Die cut it from Pitch Black, Kiwi, Paradise, Azalea, Plum and Cardinal and assembled my card. Stamped sentiment on Pitch black and embossed in white. Assembled my panel on Peony card stock panel and adhered to pitch black note card.




GIVEAWAY: Hero Arts is giving away one $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, May 10th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.

Great cards. The snails are so cute. I love the hearts tree.

I especially love the snail card. To me...it is a symbol of slowing down. Sometimes I get kind of "ahead of myself" and have to tell myself "to go a little slower". Less mistakes...you know?

I love your cards. That tree is my favorite. I just ordered it to ship with my HA kit.
Thank you for sharing the video.

Judy Price said...

Great cards! I love the snails - I think my favorite of this set. Or maybe my favorites are the tree of hearts cards! I think it's awesome how you cut out a few hearts on the second card. Or -- maybe my favorite is the May card? I don't know; too hard to choose. That's why I love them all! Thanks for sharing!
