Good morning! Today is the day…. the release of the May 2018 My Monthly Hero kit! You should have arrived here from the amazing Amy Tsuruta’s blog, and your next stop is the incomparable May Park’s blog. There are so many sweet storybook silhouette images included in this kit, and it’s a bargain at $34.99 (valued at over $70!). These kits frequently sell out, so it’s always a good idea to subscribe if you want to ensure that you’ll get your hands on one! The kit & add-ons go live in the Hero Arts store on Monday May 7th at 1pm eastern/10am pacific. The main kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone. Kits begin shipping from Hero Arts on Friday May 11th.
This particular kit features an absolutely stunning and intricate tree frame die, to which I added some Copic coloring in this post on the Hero Arts blog. Today, I wanted to use some of the darling add-ons that are now available for purchase! I chose to create a super simple but sweet card using the Besties Stamp & Cut. I combined it with the beautiful and detailed Woodgrain card stock from the Hero Arts store for this ultra-CAS design!
Do you know the song “People Will Say We’re In Love” from Oklahoma? This stamp set reminds me of the line “Granting your wish, I carved our initials on that tree!” So sweet and romantic. I started with a slightly-smaller-than-A2 panel of Hero Arts’s Woodgrain Card Stock and die cut the heart using one of the dies from the Besties Stamp & Cut. I then die cut another heart from regular white card stock and stamped the heart wood slice image from the Besties stamp set using Wet Cement ink. I added the “u+me” using black embossing powder.
Next, I adhered my woodgrain panel to a black A2 card base. I inserted my stamped heart wood slice, creating the illusion of those carved initials from the song. Bonus is that the die cut inlay creates a lovely flat surface, easy for mailing! This card would be adorable for a long distance best friend, too!
Now, for a giveaway!!! We are giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop.
