Hero Arts January Kit!

Hello!! Today is launch day for the January My Monthly Hero kit at Hero Arts. It has a Valentines theme, and among other things, a heart die I absolutely LOVE!! It is truly a must have. It's what Hero Arts refers to as a "Paper Layering" die - it partially cuts, to allow dimension on the card. I love how the hearts look like they are fluttering off the card!


On this card, I used watercolor paper, and watercolored the hearts and background all in a pretty pool color. I also coated the hearts with Bo Bunny Glitter Paste - my latest addiction! A message from the kit was embossed in silver.


For my next card, I kept with the blue theme and stamped the solid hearts from the set randomly on my card. I had a "bokeh" look in mind as inspiration as I stamped this. Another fun sentiment from the kit was used on this one.


More glitter paste was used on a die cut heart - see, told you I'm addicted! This time I used silver.

This next card is one I shared on the Hero Arts blog on Saturday. I love the simplicity of it! And again, that die is just so gorgeous! The message on this one isn't included in the kit, it's from a set called You Are My Happy, from the Valentines release. It has the same font as messages in the kit, I love it!


Here's my entire set of cards - yes, I was into blue for this release! :-)


And here's a look at the entire kit! It's fabulous!! Two stamp sets, two ink cubes, dies, sequins, things for making shaker cards, including acetate and some really gorgeous vellum, and also additional cards and envelopes. So much fun in one kit!! The sweet & talented queen of shaker cards and sequins - Lucy Abrams - created the exclusive sequin mix, so you know it has to be beautiful!

You can see this kit in action on several other fabulous blogs, here's the complete list!
