January My Monthly Hero Release & Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome! Today I am hopping with Hero Arts for the launch of the January My Monthly Hero kit. It's a fun one! The theme is matchbox Valentines. The main kit includes a die that creates a flat, faux matchbox that goes onto the front of a card or project. I made a few card with it as well as the great accessories.


This first card is what I created with the flat matchbox! There are stamps to decorate the top, and a bunch of fun dies for inside or to also decorate the top. I went with the matches theme.


These heart-shaped matches are too cute! I colored them with my OLO markers, and added a bit of EarthSafe Glitter. The matches could also make cute heart-shaped lollipops! The background is one of the new add-ons, Mini Hearts Bold Prints.


For this next card, I created little Hershey's Kisses out of silver glitter paper. The message strips are in the kit as well, I just attempted to make them look like the paper that comes out of the Kisses. The background was stenciled with a fun stencil, also from the kit.

This last card is just a mini Valentine. I have fun layering up the LOVE message die.

Here's a look at the entire kit. So much fun and so many possibilities!

Now it's time to hop! Visit the rest of the artists sharing projects to day, and leave comments along the way. Hero Arts will draw one person from all the comments to win a $50 gift certificate to the Hero Arts store.

Tomorrow I'll be on Facebook & YouTube, sharing an overview of the release and chatting with the kit designer, Yesenia. I hope you'll join me!

November My Monthly Hero Release + Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome to the November release from Hero Arts! The kit this month is absolutely amazing. I think it's going to be a quick seller, so grab it asap if you love it!


For my card today, I went in more of a fall direction than the holiday look the kit intended. It's such an incredibly versatile kit, you can do so much with it!


I die cut a bunch of pieces from watercolor paper, then colored them with my Distress Watercolor Pencils. I added some Pool Party ink blending in the background, flicked on some of the same ink as well as Gold Glimmer Metallic Ink, and added some Gold Hero Pearls. The message is from Grateful Words Fancy Dies and is coated with Gold Hero Wax.


Here's a look at the entire kit, and I'll link the add-on products down below:

Case Me a Christmas Card Guest Post

Today I'm honored to be joining Michelle Lupton for her annual Case Me a Christmas Card series. Here's my card:


I ink blended with Taffy, Lemon Drop and Pool Party Reactive Inks using my Hero Arts blending brushes. The Stained Glass Angel Fancy Die is die cut from Ultra Smooth White Cardstock. A bit of Sparkle Clear Lacquer Pen to the heart of the angel. The message is from Holiday Sentiment Strips, white embossed after stamping in Unicorn ink, and die cut with Sentiment Strips Fancy Die.


Here's Michelle's card inspiration. I loved the blended rainbow background, the white die cut, and the white message on black cardstock.


Michelle's series is ongoing through the holiday season - tune in and see what all she creates!
