March 2019 My Monthly Hero is Here + GIVEAWAY!

Mar 04, 2019 Hero Arts

There's something fishy going on at Hero Arts this month - and we mean that in the best possible way!

Our March release is packed with our favorites from the aquarium. From fishbowls, to betta fish, to turtles, we've got you covered! We even have curious cats who cannot resist saying hello to their fishy friends. And be sure to take a closer look at the incredibly gorgeous Jellyfish Party Bold Prints stamp and Paper Layering Seahorses dies - both are sure to be best sellers!

Our kit this month includes everything you need to create a beautiful aquarium scene. The showstopper is the Aquarium Fancy Die! Put this die cut piece in front of all the aquarium wonders from the 6 x 8 clear set. And have fun playing with the new Reactive Ink Cubes this month in Sea Glass, Blue Water and Sea Salt colors. They blend like a dream, and yield fun results when sprayed with water! Rounding out the kit is a package of blue and green droplets, perfect as bubbles, or to mimic the stones at the bottom of your papercrafted aquarium!


This month's kit includes:

  • 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
  • 27 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • 5.5" x 4.25" Aquarium Fancy Die
  • 3 Water Reactive Ink Cubes (Sea Salt, Sea Glass, Blue Water)
  • Blue and Green Droplets

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!



We also have several optional add-on products this month - let's take a look at them...

There is a reduced shipping rate of $9.99 for our kit subscribers when shipping to international destinations.

Now let's take a look at some projects Janette created with this month's kit!

After the cold and wet winter many of us have been experiencing, I am sure this month's kit has more than just myself dreaming of the tropics and the deep blue sea! 

Create this project by ink blending a scant 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Dove White cardstock panel with the kit included Water Reactive Inks in Blue Water for the top half and Sea Glass at the bottom.

Mask sun rays and ink blend with kit included Water Reactive Sea Salt to brighten area. I masked one ray at a time with Avery Removable Labels, peeked to check lightness and then moved to the next. Once all rays were complete, I sprinkled panel with water and allowed it to dry as I moved to the next step.

I stamped several of the silhouette style sea images in various Ombre Inks to liven them up. (No line stamping would be a fun technique with silhouette images too! Just stamp in a very light ink color and use the border as a guideline to fill in the image.) Stamp urchin and sentiment in Black Dye Ink and die cut all images. Circle sentiment with Nesting Circle Infinity Dies. Stamp diver directly onto panel in Soft Granite

Precision Glue images and sentiment to panel, and panel to card base with dimensional adhesive. Apply a few kit included droplets below jellyfish to imply movement.

Just keep swimming, my friends!

Thanks, Janette! For more ideas, we've asked our talented Creative Team as well as some crafty friends to help us introduce this kit. Please be sure to visit all of their blogs – and leave a comment at every stop along the way. One reader will be randomly selected to receive a free March kit (or reimbursement if you have already purchased your kit!) Leave your comments on all of these blogs by Sunday, March 10th at 11:59pm PT, then look for the winner announcement here on the blog the following week.

Fabulous release – I love that graceful layered goldfish, and love the bubbly background stamp. The kitty is adorable too – but I am suspecting that kitty may not quite be so innocuous in his greeting of the fishy!
