May 2020 My Monthly Hero Is Here + Giveaway!

by Hero Arts May 04, 2020 105 Comments

This is not a normal time we're all living through (together, yet apart). You may not be able to be with friends and family, but you can let them know you're thinking about them by sending a little sunshine their way! This month's release is all about the act of making and sending handmade greetings to the people you care about. And with this kit, the envelope can be just as cheerful as the card inside! Use the stamps in the kit to decorate the envelope. Use adorable little dies from the kit to cut shapes into your envelope flap. We've made it easy for you by including envelopes right in the kit, to encourage you to send out those heartfelt cards you love to make. For an extra fun touch, we've included three beautiful Karin DécoBrush Metallic Markers as well. Spread a little love - it's just what the world needs right now.

Here's a look at this month's kit:

This month’s kit includes:

  • 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
  • 7 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • 7 Envelope Art Icon Fancy Dies
  • 3 Karin DécoBrush Metallic Markers (Gold, Pink & Blue)
  • 5 White A7 Envelopes
  • 5 White A2 Envelopes

This kit is valued at $79.99, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities – grab yours before they are gone!

There are also 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 project sample made with any of these products, click the links to view them in our store.

Our first new product to introduce you to is this wonderful US Mailbox Fancy Die, complete with envelopes and postcards! 

Next, how about an adorable airplane? Airplane Fancy Die is a larger spin on the cute little airplane in this month's kit. Imagine it carrying happy mail to someone you care about!

How about some tools to help you build a gorgeous scene? We know you'll reach for Cloudy Sky Scene Dies again and again! Tip: create your own stencil with your die cut clouds!

Next, Paper Layering Window Shutters, which create a little hinge to actually open! Perfect for stamping a scene inside outside the windows - perhaps combine them with a HeroScape?

Our new Sun Background Stencil is sure to brighten any project you use it on!

Next up, a couple of Stamp & Cuts, which are a 3x4 stamp set paired with a few coordinating dies. One Thing at a Time Stamp & Cut is perfect for sending a bit of encouragement to someone needing it.

Another set for encouragement cards, Heart Tree Stamp & Cut creates a unique look by adding cut out hearts in addition to the stamped hearts, to fill out the tree.

And finally, continuing our year of monthly word dies, we have our beautiful new May Word Fancy Die.

And a reminder - last month we are introduced a new fundraiser product, We Are In This Together World Enamel Pin. During these difficult times, it's a reminder that we are one world, in this together, and we are stronger when we support one another with friendship and kindness. Hero Arts will donate 100% of net profits from the sale of this pin to support COVID-19 disaster relief.

Please note, this month shipping will be delayed. Currently we estimate that shipping will begin May 18. When shopping this release, please keep in mind that right now, with the company under shelter-at-home orders, kits, add-ons, papers and inks ship the quickest. Adding other products to your cart may make your order take longer. Due to logistics, we are not offering the "get them all" option this month. We know you are excited to get your kit and appreciate your patience as we work through delays during this time of COVID-19. We are sending love and support, as well as healing thoughts to those who know people who have fallen sick or are sick themselves.

A note for our kit subscribers: You have the opportunity to shop and add items this month without any additional shipping charges. We've expanded the window a bit this month, since shipping will be a little later. Simply log in to your account and place your order by Monday, May 11th at 11:59am Pacific in order to take advantage of this offer. Your kit may ship in a separate box than any extras and add-ons, but no additional shipping costs will apply.

For kit inspiration, be sure to visit all of the Countdown posts from this past weekend if you haven't already! Our Creative Team did a fantastic job introducing this kit - check out Idea #1 by Debi, Idea #2 by Michelle, Idea #3 by Ilina, Idea #4 by Janette, Idea #5 by Jessica and Idea #6 by Daniel.

For even more inspiration - our amazing Creative Team as well as some crafty friends are hopping today to help us introduce this release. Hop along to their blogs – and leave a comment at every stop along the way. One reader will be randomly selected to receive a $50 gift card to use in the Hero Arts store. Leave your comments by Sunday, May 10th at 11:59pm Pacific, then look for the winner announcement here on the blog the following week. You do not have to comment on every blog to enter, but the more comments, the more chances to win!

Thank you for your hard work during these difficult times. I can only imagine how difficult it is to fulfill all of the orders with a staff of 3 people. If I lived near you, I would volunteer to help (Practicing Social distancing and proper hand washing). You are doing an outstanding job. I am so thankful that I paid for the 6-month subscription while I was working because I have had something special and fun to look forward to each month. Although I need to go back to work, I don’t want to because I want to stay home and craft all day!
