by Hero Arts July 02, 2021 153 Comments

Happy Friday, friends! Today we get to kick off the countdown to the release of the July My Monthly Hero Kit and we couldn't be more excited to share it with you! A bit of housekeeping before we begin: release day will be one day later than usual this month, due to Independence Day here in the US. Hero Arts will be closed on Monday, July 5. You will be able to purchase the kit on Tuesday, July 6 at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. In the meantime, the Creative Team will be right here, sharing heaps of inspiration before the launch.

Now let's jump right in with four fantastic cards! Be sure to visit each blog (linked below the photos), where you can find more project details.

Project #1 created by Debi Adams

We hope you enjoyed this walk through the magical woodland forest! As you can already see, this kit is filled with lots of fun images and messages that you'll be able to combine in countless ways to create smile-inducing cards. Eager to see more? Join us again tomorrow for the next four peeks!

WIN A KIT BEFORE YOU CAN BUY IT: Just leave a comment on this (and every) Countdown to Creativity post. We’ll randomly draw one lucky winner from comments left across all countdown posts on the Hero Arts blog. The winner will be announced first thing Tuesday morning, July 6, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win. Good luck!

Happy stamping,

It may seem odd but after 25+ years of stamping I don’t have any gnome stamps. My only mushroom stamps are from a MMH kit a few years ago.
It’s about time I add a magical forest to my stash!

Oh Gnome! Gnomes are making a comeback this year WooHoo (not that they ever go out of style lol). I’m super excited about July’s MMH, can’t wait. These cards are all great! I don’t usually pick a favorite, but All the Sparkle’s card created such a gorgeous background and that’s silhouette stamping is really great. Thanks for reminding us we can do more with our stamps.

I used to have a book about gnomes when I was younger and living in Holland. It had a cardboard 3-D room you could make with lots of things like tables and chairs and the characters. This just so reminds me of that. Fab set.
