April 2018 My Monthly Hero is Here! + Giveaway!

by Hero Arts April 02, 2018 113 Comments

Welcome to the release of our April My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons. This calls for a fiesta! At the end of this post you will find this month's blog hop, full of inspiration using this month's products.

It's time to celebrate and this is the kit to get the party started! We've got festive images galore, with oodles of coordinating Frame Cuts to match. You'll also find a floral window Fancy Die to extend the theme. To round out the kit's offerings we're including three Reactive inks (spray with water for fabulous and unpredictable results), and three long sheets of brightly colored Unryu tissue paper.

This month's kit includes:

6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
20 Coordinating Frame Cuts Dies
1 Ornate Floral Border Die
3 Reactive Ink Cubes (Fiesta Red, Fiesta Teal, Fiesta Yellow)
3 6" x 18" Sheets Unryu Paper (Assorted Colors)

This kit is valued at $74.99, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities - grab yours before they are gone! 

Here's a closer look at the inks included in the kit. They are vibrant, blend beautifully and react with water. We think you'll really enjoy them!

We also have several optional add-on products this month - 3 clear stamp sets, 3 coordinating Frame Cut sets, 2 Fancy Dies, 1 Paper Layering Die, 1 Confetti Die, 1 Bold Print background Cling stamp, and a new addition to our Liquid Watercolor line - purple! You can also purchase all of the add-ons as a bundle, at a savings to you.

First up, It's Fiesta Time - an adorable set to get you in the party spirit! It has matching It's Fiesta Time Frame Cuts, too!

Next, a Day of the Dead-inspired set that will make you "party 'til you drop" - Shake Your Bones, and matching dies too.

We had the chihuahua set above, and we couldn't leave out our cat-loving friends! It's time to "fiesta right meow" with Cinco de Meow and the matching Cinco de Meow Frame Cuts!

Our Paper Layering dies partially cut some areas to add extra texture to your die cuts. The new Paper Layering Pinata uses this technique to create fabulous fringe!

Speaking of fringe - the next die, Fiesta Fringe Fancy Die, is handy for creating fringed accents on your cards and projects! It has been designed to allow for you to trim the bottom edge and create the perfect length of fringe that your project calls for.

For gorgeous borders or banners on your cards, Decorative Edge Fancy Die is perfect!

The Papel Picado Confetti Die measures 4.2" x 5.4" to cover your entire A2 card front.

Blanket Pattern Bold Prints is a fantastic background for your Southwest-inspired projects, and beyond!

And closing out the add-ons, another must-have color in our line of Liquid Watercolors - Purple!

Love all of these fabulous new add-ons? You can Get Them All in a bundle for roughly a 10% savings!

A note for our kit subscribers: You have the opportunity to shop and add items this month without any additional shipping charges. Simply log in to your account and place your order by Thursday, April 5th at 11:59am Pacific in order to take advantage of this offer. Your kit may ship in a separate box than any extras and add-ons, but no additional shipping costs will apply. Kit shipping begins Friday, April 6th and continues throughout the following week. A reduced shipping rate of $9.99 for our kit subscribers when shipping to international destinations.

How about some projects created with this month's kit? Libby created this card - she had a bunch of fun coloring all of the images with her Copic markers! The little papel picado image is easy to stamp repeatedly to create fun banners.

Some of the messages from the kit were combined to create the sentiment, then embossed in black. The festive little mouse was popped up for added dimension.

Here's a quick and easy card Libby created using the cactus stamps and a coordinating message from the kit.

Again the message was embossed, this time in white.

For more ideas, we've asked our talented Creative Team as well as some crafty friends to help us introduce this kit. Please be sure to visit all of their blogs  and leave a comment at every stop along the way. One reader will be randomly selected to receive a free April kit (or reimbursement if you have already purchased your kit!)
