January My Monthly Hero - Release + Giveaway!

It's My Monthly Hero release day over at Hero Arts! And it's a really gorgeous one!


The little mason jar is my favorite, especially with the heart stamped onto it. I added a little glitter because everything's better with glitter.


The heart of roses is super gorgeous, too!


I love that if you color them green, they can also look like succulents!





 I also love the little bouquet stamps. Being able to build your own bouquet, all wrapped in a paper, is so much fun!


The red ink in the kit is a nice, true red. I made these mini cards, all with stamps from the main kit.



Here's a peek at the full kit.

  24. I do appreciate how difficult it is sometimes to match reds! I have one pigment ink pad that I like at Christmas because it is a true "Christmas red"! I just stamped one sentiment this morning with 5 different reds trying to match the red duct tape hearts I put on my son's valentine!!! I really wanted to emboss it, but only had very dark purply red embossing powder--lovely color, just wrong for this card! I know what I will be using my coupon for this week (if the snow ever melts!!!) Thanks so much for ALL the inspiration. My favorite is the pink on pink glitter!

    ReplyDelete
