July 2019 My Monthly Hero is Here + GIVEAWAY!
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!
Want to add your own spelled out phrases? Log Letters and Numbers is perfect for that. It's a great addition for scrapbooking, too!
How sweet is the Camper Fancy Die? It makes us want to hit the road and visit the National Parks!
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!

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.
