July 2018 My Monthly Hero is Here! + Giveaway!

by Hero Arts July 02, 2018 157 Comments

Release day is here! And this month we're celebrating one of the joys of summer with our July My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons...

The carnival is coming to town! Come one, come all -- step right up to enjoy the festivities of the county fair, Hero Arts style. We have amusements and treats galore featured in our 6" x 8" clear set. Coordinating dies along with a background Fancy Die highlight the joyful summer theme. Add to that 3 vintage chipboard postcard backers and ink cubes in patriotic colors (Reactive Red, Reactive Blue, and Pigment White) and you've got a festival of fun.

This month's kit includes:

    6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
    10 Coordinating Frame Cuts
    1 4.25" x 5.5" Fancy Die
    3 Ink Cubes (Red Reactive, Blue Reactive, Unicorn White Pigment)
    3 4" x 6" Chipboard Postcards

    This kit is valued at $70, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities - grab yours before they are gone!

    We also have several optional add-on products this month - let's take a look! First, a beautiful clear set that takes us right back to childhood - Ornate Carousel and the coordinating Ornate Carousel Frame Cuts (E).


    If pigs could fly - we hope they'd do it attached to balloons, like the piggy in this adorable County Fair Pig clear set! There are matching County Fair Pig Frame Cuts (D), too.


    The farm animals at the county fair are a favorite in our family - the animals in Hay Party Animals are prize-winning for sure. It also has matching Hay Party Animals Frame Cuts (D).


    And of course it wouldn't be the county fair without the treats! You're Sweet As Pie is a delicious assortment of yummy fair foods, and has You're Sweet As Pie Frame Cuts (D), too.


    Who wins the blue ribbon in your life? You can let them know on your cards and projects with this #1 Winner Stamp & Cut!


    Next up is a gorgeous die, inspired by classic county fair posters - Marquee Frame Fancy Die (F).


    Everything you love about the county fair is summarized on this fun background die - County Fair Bold Prints.


    And last but certainly not least - a color we've had many requests for - Pink Liquid Watercolor!

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

    Now let's take a look at some projects Clare created with this month's kit

    I could not stop making cards with this kit! These two cards were created one after another, using a background I blended using the colored inks from the kit and some washi tape.

    The inks are reactive, so I could've added water for more interest, but I kept it pretty simple for these two cards.

    I cut two strips from the background and added one to either side of the card base. Then I adhered a white panel on top, and stamped two clouds in the kit blue ink. I then stamped the cute little roller coaster in black on kraft paper, die-cut it, and adhered it to the white panel.

    I topped the card off with a sentiment I heat embossed in white on black cardstock, and then trimmed down for the card.

    For the second card, I used the last background strip to adhere to the bottom of the card.

    I then stamped the carnival skyline in black on a white panel, adding some additional black ink beneath for a bolder line. Then I stamped some cute little fireworks in the kit red ink, and adhered the panel to the card base.

    I finished the card off with an adorable plane and message stamped in Versamark on black cardstock, and heat embossed in white.

    I love how perfectly this kit works for summer and/or Fourth of July celebrations!

    For more ideas, we've asked our talented Creative Team as well as some crafty friends to help us introduce this kit.
