May My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #3 + Giveaway

by Ilina Crouse May 02, 2020 291 Comments

Hello and welcome to day 2 of the countdown to the release of the May My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, May 4 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. A reminder, this month shipping will be delayed. Currently we estimate that shipping will begin May 15. We know you are excited to get your kit and appreciate your patience as we work through delays during this time of COVID-19.

Now let's join Ilina for another look at this day-brightening kit!

Hi everyone, Ilina here. I am starting this Saturday morning with another sneak peek for you using the new My Monthly Hero kit. I combined it with the Sun Background Stencil add-on that will be released also on Monday. Before I move onto my card, I just wanted to say that I am in love with this kit and you won't want to miss it!!! 

To make the card start by securing the stencil to a piece of Dove White cardstock measuring 4"x 5 1/4". Using a blending brush, apply Butter Bar and Soft Apricot inks. Remove the stencil and set the panel aside.

Stamp the rainbow and clouds image on Dove White cardstock using Intens-ified Black ink and color using alcohol based markers. Fussy cut. Set aside.

Stamp sentiment and trim to a strip. Assemble your panel and add a few clear enamel dots. Using fun foam, adhere the panel to a Top Folding Dove White notecard.

*** 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, May 4, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win. Good luck!

Such a cute card, Ilina!

It’s tough looking forward to these sneak peeks (especially now when we are all desperate for something uplifting) then seeing that so much of the design is created using add ons between this and the last reveal. I don’t intend to give anyone a hard time, but it’s disappointing as a kit subscriber who is looking for kit ideas and can’t afford add ons with every kit, especially in these tight times when so many are having to make cut backs to make ends meet. I hope the team at Hero Arts can take this as constructive feedback and not criticism, you guys are doing an amazing job to keep running and working around everything that Covid has thrown at us, and I know times are hard for everyone right now.
