And at the end of this post you will find links to a blog hop that will provide plenty of inspiration using this month’s kit and add-ons.
This month’s March My Monthly Hero Kit will make you think of Spring. It includes stamp sets full of bunnies and garden images and all of the dies you will need to complement them!

We also have some terrific, optional add-on products this month — 5 stamp sets, coordinating dies, a Paper Layering die and a woodblock stamp! First we have the Welcome Home stamp set and coordinating Welcome Home Frame Cuts. With these images you can create cozy scenes or use them as fun stand-alone images on your card. Michelle shows us how to create a simple but adorable scene using this set on her countdown post.
Next up is a Fresh Herbs stamp set. Use these stamps to create a fun background or as an accent on your cards. There are images that you can just stamp and others that you can color if you want to.
So how much fun are these fungi! (sorry, couldn’t resist) You’re a Fungi stamp set has wonderful images and some punny sayings to go with them.
The Produce and Seeds stamp set really says Spring! Fruit, vegetables and cute sayings to go with them. You can easily create a simple card that the recipient will love! Jess, Yana and Jayne all combined sentiments from this stamp set with kit images to create awesome cards in their countdown posts.
Next up is the Egg-cellent Stamp set. Animals and, yes, bacon. So many creative possibilities with this set.
The last of the stamps is the Basket of Apples woodblock stamp. So perfect for coloring with your favorite coloring medium.
Last up is the Paper Layering Rabbit with Frame. Isn’t he cute? Chocolate bunny, fun colored bunny — so many options!
How about some more inspiration! This is from Creative Team member Jayne Nelson:
I am beyond excited about this month’s rabbit and garden inspired kit! It would be impossible for me to pick a favorite monthly kit but this one might be the one! The kit is chock full of adorable rabbit and gardening stamps and dies – perfect for spring and summer cards for all occasions!
To make my card, I started by creating a card base with one piece of the textured, green cardstock that is included in the kit and then wrapping the card front with a length of raffia ribbon, also included in the kit. I trimmed a piece of white layering paper that I inked above and below a masked line to creak a pink sky and some brown soil. I also stamped one of the kit’s sentiments with black ink in the sky. Before securing the panel to my card with foam tape, I used the kit’s “tilling” die to cut rows of curved slits in the garden. These die cut slits work brilliantly with the vegetable images for creating planted gardens.
Next, I simply stamped a pair of rabbits and a few assorted vegetables with Intense Black ink on white cardstock. I loosely watercolored each image and after they dried, I used the matching dies to cut around each element. I secured each of the images to the card with adhesive dots, making sure to nestle a few of the vegetables into the slits in the garden. It was so easy and tons of fun!
