MMH Countdown to Creativity

We are back with another look at the January My Monthly Hero release! The kit will be available on Monday, January 9th at 1pm eastern/10am pacific. We’ll be sharing ideas for using the main kit and the optional add-on products all weekend long, so stay tuned for more inspiration! 

Sending My Love Card by Jessica Frost-Ballas for Hero ArtsHello, Jess here with my first official post for Hero Arts and I’m so excited to share a sneak peek at the January My Monthly Hero kit!  To start I loosely watercolored a background with distress inks in shades of red and pink.  I set that aside to dry and then stamped the floral bouquet from the kit with Versafine and heat-embossed it with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Clear Embossing Powder.  Next I watercolored it with the same distress ink shades and let it dry.

Sending My Love Card by Jessica Frost-Ballas for Hero ArtsWhile that was drying I used the Love Note Pair Fancy Dies add-on set to die-cut and create an envelope with vellum. Once the watercolors were dry I used the coordinating dies from the kit to die-cut the floral bouquet and tucked it into the vellum envelope.  I stamped the sentiment from the kit with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and then adhered the envelope to the background with vellum adhesive.  Finally I added a few sparkling clear sequins to add a little sparkle to the card.

Sending My Love Card by Jessica Frost-Ballas for Hero ArtsThe January My Monthly Hero Kit will help you create fabulous love-themed cards for Valentine’s Day but it’s also full of versatile images and sentiments that will keep you coming back to it all year long!
