July 2021 My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

by Hero Arts July 06, 2021 45 Comments

Our newest kit is here! With our July release you'll travel to a magical woodland forest, full of mushrooms, ferns and hidden fairy doors. Whether the scenes you create with the kit's stamps and dies are home to fairies or gnomes, they'll be sure to put a smile on the recipient's face. The kit is rounded out with three ink cubes, exclusively-designed mushroom washi tape, and a magical mix of stardust sequins.

This month’s kit includes:

• 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
• 18 Coordinating Frame Cuts
• 3 Dye Ink Cubes (Green Hills, Soft Purple, Pale Tomato)
• Mushroom Washi Tape
• Stardust Sequins

Want to see the kit in action? Mindy has created a video to help walk you through the elements of the kit, and shares a card featuring some of the products. Watch the video below, or on YouTube.

This kit is valued at $72, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities – grab yours before they are gone!

To complement the kit, we've created some additional products that correspond with the main theme. We love how this collection has come together, and hope you will, too!

First, let's take a look at a couple new 6x6 cling background stamps. Woodgrain Bold Prints can be used in so many designs, and is one you'll reach for again and again.

Magical Unicorn Bold Prints was inspired by the tapestries of days gone by, and is such a fun addition to our magical forest theme. Can you spot the hidden "easter egg" in the design?

Now onto the clear sets. We had to include a little fairytale in our magical forest theme! Little Red Riding Hood and coordinating Frame Cuts is a sweet illustration of this classic. And how about those messages...!?

Here are a few ideas for arranging the stamps in the Little Red Riding Hood set to create scenes on your cards.

The next clear set is a larger 6x8 stamp set, and one of our always-popular HeroScapes. Meadow HeroScape and matching dies creates a flowery meadow, complete with butterflies and fairies.

The final clear set of this release, Magical Forest, is another 4x6 set, and gives you several elements to build a forest scene - whether you decide to make it magical or not. There are coordinating dies, too.

Next, let's look at the standalone dies in this release. They are fantastic! First are the Mushroom and Ferns Fancy Dies. There are so many fun things to do with these, whether you color them with markers or pencils, watercolor them, or create silhouettes by die cutting them from solid paper.

Mushroom Forest Fancy Die cuts a delightful little scene, which can be die cut with or without the oval frame.

Another little scene-maker for your cards is Forest Vines Window Die, which is great for windows, shakers or inlaid scenes.

We rounded out the release with three fabulous new Infinity Dies sets. There are so many fun possibilities with the Fairy Doors Infinity Dies! Fairy doors, gnome homes, hobbit-holes - you can take these fun dies wherever your imagination wants to go!

Here's a fun example from our stamp designers, showing the Fairy Doors Infinity Dies combined with both the Woodgrain Bold Prints as well as the Mushroom and Ferns Fancy Dies.

Branches Infinity Dies is wonderful for creating a look of looking through a thick forest, or through the branches up towards the sky! There are two layers of branches, plus an extra branch and additional leaves.

Here are some ideas for using these great dies!

The green example above combined the Branches Infinity Dies with the Starry Clouds Infinity Dies. This set of nesting cloud dies includes cutouts for stars, and is perfect for creating magical night skies on your projects.

Imagine the possibilities with this Infinity Dies set!

I love these cards. The new stamps and the add-ons are fantastic!
AND, I learned so many techniques like the water spots on the reactive inks and a way to make a moon that’s not bright yellow.
Thank you for a great demo and inspiring me!
