February 2020 My Monthly Hero is Here + Giveaway!

by Hero Arts February 03, 2020 128 Comments

The February My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons are here! It's a good day for a birthday - or in our case, it's a good day to create a stash of birthday cards!

Our February release will put you well on your way to having a pile of cards to pick from, whenever they are needed. Our main kit combines birthday and floral, with stamps to create gorgeous frames - one that fits perfectly on your A2 card, or a smaller version ideal for gift cards. Or, die cut the elements of the frames separately with the matching Frame Cuts included in the kit! Also included is a gorgeous Birthday Cake Fancy Die, and fabulous messages for your birthday greetings. Finishing out the kit is a festive mix of sequins, and three lacquer pens that are fun for "icing" your paper cakes!

This month’s kit includes:

  • 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
  • 9 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • 1 Cake Fancy Die
  • 3 Lacquer Pens (Pink Icing, Teal Icing, Yellow Icing)
  • Rainbow Spirals & Balloon Sequins

This kit is valued at $75, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities – grab yours before they are gone!

The birthday theme of the kit inspired the optional add-ons this month, too! We'll introduce you to them below. If you'd like to see a card sample made with any of these products, click the links to view them in our store.

First up, a fun birthday set call Surprise Gift, along with matching Surprise Gift Frame Cuts. Just think of all the things you could have peeking out of this box!

Festive Balloon and Festive Balloon Frame Cuts are useful for all sorts of cards - who doesn't love balloons? Use the balloons alone, or use the adorable tassels to decorate the string, or even make a little tassel banner!

Cupcakes make everything sweeter! You're Top Tier and You're Top Tier Frame Cuts are a delicious option for your cards and projects.

Decorate A Cake with stamped icing, flowers, or even turn it into a unicorn cake! The cake options are endless, and this one works for any cake decorating and eating occasion! Pair it with the Decorate A Cake Frame Cuts.

Attention dog fans!! We have another cute dog set for you! Birthday Paw-ty and Birthday Paw-ty Frame Cuts helps you raise the woof. Consider lining those cupcakes up along the dog's back for an extra-cute look!

Another great set for your birthday cards - Time For Cake and Time for Cake Frame Cuts! Great for nice cards to friends and family, but also with a touch of snark. I wonder if my husband would appreciate a "you're old" card...

How cute is this Party Fox Stamp & Cut? The stamps & dies come together in one package for this one. The messages are a little edgy, and the dies are super useful - combine the dies with so many other stamps and dies on your projects!

Another useful die set - Banner Letterset Fancy Dies! The letters can be used separately from the banners, or pop out the letters and replace them with different colored cardstock for a fun look!

The Happy Birthday Cake Fancy Die is similar to our Very Merry Tree Fancy Die - die cut this directly into your cardstock panel; the middle cuts away and the words are left spanning the area. Use it as a focal point layer on your card, or even turn it into a shaker card!

And finally, joining January as an addition to our die "series" for this year - the February Word Fancy Die! This die is not yet available, but is available for pre-order. Dies will ship later in February - please note, they will not ship in time for Valentine's Day.

Love all of these fabulous new add-ons? You can Get Them All in a bundle for roughly a 10% savings, while supplies last. (The February Word Fancy Die is not included in this month's bundle.)

I love the stamps & dies of this set! I always feel I could use more birthday stamps & dies! The little balloon shape sequins reminded me how before I made cards, I would always include bday confetti in the cards I sent so when the recipient opened, they were showered with confetti 🎉 😀
