by Hero Arts June 04, 2018 235 Comments

Welcome to the release of the June My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons! Our June release takes you away for a relaxing day at the seashore - all from the comfort of your craft room!

Welcome summer with our dual Color Layering sea and sky kit. Settle into an adirondack chair, watch the rolling waves and contemplate the vast sailboat dotted horizon. Write a fleeting message in the wet sand. Commune with sea life. Our latest offering includes a 6" x 8" clear stamp set, coordinating dies, a 4-color ink pack designed for layering, a new “sand” embossing powder, beach enamel stickers, and a shimmery spray in Sea Foam.

This month's kit includes:

6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
12 Coordinating Frame Cuts
4 Ink Cubes (Deep Ocean, Summer Sky, Soft Sky, Soft Granite)
Sand Embossing Powder 0.5 oz
Sea Foam Shimmer Spray 1 fl oz
Beach Enamel Stickers

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!

We also have several optional add-on products this month - four clear stamp sets, two coordinating Frame Cut sets, one Stamp & Cut set, one Confetti Die, one gorgeous new Frame Fancy Die, two Bold Prints background cling stamps, and another new addition to our Liquid Watercolors line - Dark Teal! You can also purchase all of the add-ons as a bundle, at a savings to you. Let's take a look at them...

First up is Seas The Day Seagulls, and the coordinating Seas the Day Seagulls Frame Cuts. Hey gullfriend - we think you'll love this set!

We give the Seal of Approval to this adorable set of the same name! This one also has coordinating Seal of Approval Frame Cuts.

You & Me By The Sea has more iconic images for your seashore-themed cards and projects.

Calling all #aquaholics - you're going to love this fun Beach Messages set.

Our handy Stamp & Cut sets come with a smaller 3x4 stamp set and coordinating dies, all in one package. Beach Please Stamp & Cut is a whole lot of fun in the sun!

Next up are a couple of 6x6 cling background stamps. You saw Jessica use this gorgeous Abstract Wave Bold Prints on Saturday - so many beautiful possibilities for this one!

Beachy Bold Prints is perfect for your beach-themed cards and projects. Those umbrellas make us want to hit the beach!

Next are a couple of stand-alone dies. Beach Frame Fancy Die is such a delicate and beautiful die, we know it's going to be a best seller!

Create a die cut background, save the little cut out waves for projects, or create your own stencil - the possibilities are endless with our Wave & Sea Confetti Die.

And last but not least, another lovely color to add to our growing collection of concentrated watercolors, all of which come in a fun and handy glass bottle with an eye dropper lid. The perfect color for our beach-themed release, Liquid Watercolor Dark Teal.

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 Libby created with this month's kit! 

I've made a couple of fun and simple cards using the items from the kit. For this first card, I stamped the three-step Color Layering water using Soft Sky, Summer Sky and Deep Ocean - all included in the kit. The inks would also make lovely ink-blended skies, but I went the quick and easy route and applied Summer Sky direct-to-paper until I had good coverage for my bright, blue sky. For the clouds, I die cut them from Radiant White paper using the included Frame Cuts dies, and then stamped just one of the two cloud layers of each size in the included Soft Granite ink.

I used a marker to color in my sand, then used the fabulous sand embossing powder to heat emboss those adorable feet in the sand. Life really IS better with sandy feet, don't you think?

Another quick and easy card that's a breeze to make with the stamps and dies in the kit features the adirondack chair image. I stamped it in two of the colors included in the kit - Summer Sky and Deep Ocean - and die cut them. Then I simply lined them up and attached them to my card, leaving a space for the message.

Mounting them all with foam tape gives a lot of fun dimension to the card. And again, a perfect message from the kit - sitting on one of these chairs, looking out at the sea, really is my happy place!

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