June My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #1 + Giveaway

by Janette Kausen June 05, 2020 407 Comments

Hello and welcome as we begin the countdown to the release of the June My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, June 8 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Our Creative Team will be here all weekend sharing sneak peeks. At this time, we estimate June kits and add-ons will begin shipping on June 19. We appreciate your patience as we continue to work on restarting our operations in a safe manner and fulfilling orders already in-house. Once those orders have gone out, will will move onto June MMH shipping.

Now let's join Janette for the first beautiful look at this month's kit!

Hello, friends! Hero Arts is taking us on an adventure to see the Aurora Borealis and I am all too happy to tag along. I have never witnessed them in person, but it is certainly on my list to do so!

Recreate this project by ink blending with Reactive Inks in Pool Party and Splash, then Amethyst Pigment Ink from the bottom up on an A2 (4 1/4" x 5 1/2") Dove White cardstock panel. Combining ink types is not only OK, but I encourage it! Experiment - stretch your collection!

Die cut kit included lighthouse, bird and star. Cut once in Dove White and again in Pebble cardstock for the lighthouse and bird, and Canary for the star. Stamp sentiment in Moonstone Pigment Ink and heat emboss with Sparkle Embossing Powder - no need for embossing ink!

After ink blended panel has thoroughly dried, and has been liberally dusted with anti-static powder, Sparkle heat emboss with kit included background stamp. Layer matching die cut images together, slightly offset, to create a drop shadow and adhere in place. Fussy cut sentiment and pop in place with dimensional adhesive. Then, adhere finished panel to folded card base.

*** 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 all the comments left across all countdown posts. The winner will be announced first thing Monday morning, June 8, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

My second bit of encouragement for today? Send your cards. That ray of sunshine could be just what someone needs.

xo,

I was fortunate enough to see the northern lights in Maine when I was young. I was with my immediate & extended family, & we all witnessed the magic & beauty of the night sky with its flowing colors. Now they are all gone, except my aunt, who is in a nursing home in northern Maine. I send her cards regularly, as I am not allowed to visit her yet from my home in CT, & would love to send a card like this that would remind her of happier times. You are right, cards do bring a bit of sunshine into people’s lives, especially the personalized ones we make for our friends & family.
