March 2020 My Monthly Hero is Here + Giveaway!
We're celebrating the coming of spring with an explosion of blossoms and color!
Japan is the inspiration for the HeroScape in this month's kit, which features a serene zen garden and flowering cherry tree, complete with pagodas. Included in the kit are the perfect inks for stamping your scene, as well as a selection of our Hero Hues Premium Cardstock. And how about a little puffy pink embossing powder to accent your trees? HeroScapes incorporate the Color Layering technique of using clear stamps to overlay one image on top of another, using different inks, in order to bring out a fully realized dramatic landscape scene.
This month’s kit includes:
- 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
- 5 Coordinating Frame Cuts
- 5 Ink Cubes (Green Hills, Field Greens, Dusty Blue, Rose Madder, Cotton Candy)
- 6 5.5"x 8.5" Sheets of Cardstock (2 each of Peony, Kiwi and Mist)
- Pink Puff Embossing Powder 0.5 oz.
This kit is valued at $70, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities – grab yours before they are gone!
To complement the theme of the main kit, we've also designed several optional add-ons. Most can be combined with the kit, or stand alone as great additions to your crafting collection! If you'd like to see a card sample made with any of these products, click the links to view them in our store.
Let's begin with some gorgeous new ink! Did you know we introduced a new line of pigment ink pads with our 2020 Catalog? This month we're expanding the collection to include a beautiful shade of pink, Hero Hues Rose Quartz Pigment Pad, inspired by the cherry blossoms.
There are three must-have red rubber cling background stamps this month. Our Bold Prints measure 6" x 6", and make a great background on your projects, or even the focal point! They are, from left to right: Parasol Pattern Bold Prints, Waves and Clouds Bold Prints and Koi Pond Bold Prints.
Next, we're moving on to the 4" x 6" clear stamp sets this month. If you love the flower aspect of the main kit, this first stamp set is a more detailed cherry blossom option - Dreams Will Blossom and the matching Dreams Will Blossom Frame Cuts.
The Tranquility stamp set has great messages combined with wonderful imagery, and will bring a bit of calm and peace into your stamping.
Speaking of bringing calm - that is literally one of the messages in the Zen Messages set. These would be fantastic paired with the Bold Prints shown above!
Flame Dragon is a fabulously dramatic stamp for your woodblock collection. It's also great for those sometimes more-difficult-to-make masculine cards!
