July 2019 My Monthly Hero is Here + GIVEAWAY!

by Hero Arts July 01, 2019 109 Comments

It's time for another fabulous My Monthly Hero release! This month we're combining one of our favorite techniques - Color Layering - with one of our happy places - the lake!

July - the perfect time of year for summertime fun at the lake! This month's kit celebrates the great outdoors. From enjoying the fresh air, to fishing, to doing a cannonball from the end of the dock, life truly is better at the lake! This month's kit includes a 6" x 8" Color Layering stamp set with matching dies, two Fancy Dies to enhance your stamped scenes, 5 cubes of ink in perfect lake-inspired colors, a gorgeous new "blue pearl" embossing powder, and introducing two new additions to our line of Hero Hues Premium Cardstock - Meadow and Lapis!

This month’s kit includes:

  • 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
  • 14 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • 2 Fancy Dies
  • 5 Ink Cubes (Dusty Blue, Lime Green, Forest, Cocoa, Sand Stone)
  • 4 5.5" x 8.5" Sheets of New Hero Hues Premium Cardstock (2 each Meadow and Lapis)
  • Blue Pearl Embossing Powder 0.5 oz.

This kit is valued at $76, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities – grab yours before they are gone!

In addition to the July My Monthly Hero kit, there are several optional products in this month's collection that coordinate with this month's summertime theme!

This first stamp set, Lake Time Fun and matching Lake Time Fun Frame Cuts, works perfectly with the main kit, adding more options for your scene-building projects!

You'll make the "bear-y best" cards with this adorable Camp in the Wild and Camp in the Wild Frame Cuts.

Want to add your own spelled out phrases? Log Letters and Numbers is perfect for that. It's a great addition for scrapbooking, too!

What's "s'more" fun than a bunch of cute critters around a bonfire? Nothing at all! How about that little owl playing guitar? Love! Check out S'mores Bonfire and S'mores Bonfire Frame Cuts.

Now on to this month's Fancy Dies. First, this gorgeous silhouette in a similar style to the very popular safari version, but with a different landscape. This one is called Forest Sunset Fancy Die.

How sweet is the Camper Fancy Die? It makes us want to hit the road and visit the National Parks!



Two 6 x 6 background cling stamps are new this month - Fishing Pattern Bold Prints and Fishing Net Bold Prints.

Let's not forget one of the best treats in summertime - ice cream! The Ice Cream Cling Background can be used all by itself - but it was also designed to work with our popular Peek-a-Boo Doors Fancy Die!

We've included two new lake-inspired shades of cardstock in this month's kit. We know you're going to love them, so they are each available in a 10-pack of 8.5 x 11 sheets as well. Meadow and Lapis are two new additions to our Hero Hues Premium Cardstock line! 

Love all of these fabulous new add-ons? You can Get Them All in a bundle for roughly a 10% savings, while supplies last.

How about one more bundle of goodies? We've pulled together a new item we're calling a Factory Bundle - best selling and overstock items from the past that complement this month's theme! This is the Travel Edition, and it's valued at $52, but available as a bundle for only $34.99! Quantities are limited, so order yours today!

Simply log in to your account and place your order by Thursday, July 4th 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.

Pre-order your kit today - kit shipping begins Monday, July 8th this month due to the holiday.

Now let's take a look at a project Janette created with this month's kit!

The endless hot days of summer are sure to be cooled by a refreshing afternoon at the lake! This month's kit can transport us there with just a little ink, stamps, a few dies and maybe a nessie...

This kit is packed with lake essentials from the boat, to the dock, happy children, fish, birds, mountain and trees, but I fell for the nessie the moment I saw her! I'm not so sure my relaxing lake days would be such if I actually saw a nessie, but it would be memorable, indeed!

Create this project by ink blending Pool Party Reactive Ink above the horizon line and Blue Hawaii below on a 3" x 4 1/4" panel of Dove White cardstock. Stamp nessie in Indigo ink. Die cut mountains from Pebble cardstock and emboss white. Split mountains and adhere one behind the other at the horizon line. Stamp sentiment in Black.

Adhere blended panel to folded card base with dimensional adhesive. Stamp six buoy lines in Crimson ink. Adhere buoy lines as a border around center panel. Trim two buoy lines to add as extensions to the left and right sides of the blended panel for the correct length. Matching the pattern and tucking cut ends where possible will create a polished look.

Our amazing Creative Team as well as some crafty friends are hopping today to help us introduce this release. 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 July kit (or reimbursement if you have already purchased your kit!) Leave your comments on all of these blogs by Sunday, July 7th at 11:59pm Pacific, then look for the winner announcement here on the blog the following week.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE make more sets of the July 2019 stamp kit!!!! If not the whole kit, PLEASE offer the stamp set. The view on the Jennifer McGuire video featuring this kit is identical to the view from our lake house and our grandkids are the same age as those shown. My friend and I were both so excited to see the kit and how perfect it was for us and then deeply disappointed to find it sold out. I know this comment may seem melodramatic, but we really are so disappointed.

This is my favourite kit yet! It reflects our lifestyle so very well, along with several friends, so I could make so many cool cards for so many people with it.
We have bears wander through our yard every now & again & we have a very large beautiful grey squirrel & a large black one that come to harvest nuts from our black walnut tree. We also have a small trailer that we love to go camping with. We get ourselves tucked into a quiet spot, preferable by the ocean or a lake & just relax. No phones, no e-devices & no daily responsibilities. Bliss! Oh, I can’t forget to say that I absolutely love the Forest Sunset Fancy Die. Thank you so much for a chance to win.
