September My Monthly Hero is Here! + a Giveaway!

by Hero Arts September 05, 2017 189 Comments

We are excited to bring you the launch of our September My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons! We are in the mood for Fall and the Creative Team has enjoyed playing with these products. At the end of the post you will find links to a blog hop that will give you lots of ideas for using this month's kit and add-ons.

The September My Monthly Hero kit takes you to the cooler days of autumn, when the colors are changing and the pumpkins are plentiful! Our kit contains a 6x8 clear stamp set featuring two distinct color layering projects: a painterly treatment of both sunflowers and pumpkins, combined with the perfect sentiments. Coordinating dies will cut out your fall creations, and a set of five ink cubes in autumnal colors (Butter Bar, Cup O' Joe, Orange Soda, Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine), are designed to work well with the layering stamps. To round out the kit we've included coordinating papers and brass charms. 

Here are the contents of this month's kit:

1 6" x 8" Color Layering clear stamp set
8 Coordinating Frame Cuts dies
5 Ink cubes (Butter Bar, Cup O’ Joe, Orange Soda, Pumpkin Pie and Tangerine)
3 Brass sunflower charms
2 Brass leaf charms
2 5.5" x 8.5" sheets of Pumpkin vellum (30lb)
2 5.5" x 8.5" sheets of Moonrock cardstock (80lb)

This kit is an incredible deal with so many goodies in it that the value is $70 but the cost to you is $34.99.

We also have some wonderful, optional add-on products this month -- 3 stamp sets, coordinating dies, 2 Fancy Dies, 1 Paper Layering die, 2 Bold Print background stamps and a set of ink cubes. Love them all? You can buy them together in one bundle and save!

First we have the Color Layering Squirrel stamp set, coordinating Frame Cuts and a bundle that includes the stamps, dies and inks.

  

 

Next up? Luna the Halloween Cat stamp set and coordinating Frame Cuts. For cat and Halloween lovers alike, these products are perfect for you. Jess used one of these cats on her awesome card here

We have a beautiful Vine Pattern Bold Prints background stamp that pairs nicely with so many of the products in this release.Take a look at the tone on tone background that Jayne created here

Envision creating a beautiful fall sky or a spooky night sky with this Starry Night Brushstroke Bold Prints stamp. It would be so easy to create with this detailed stamp. Ilina made a stunning night sky background here. Jess created a background strip using the stamp to anchor the elements of her card here

Next up is the Color Layering Thanksgiving stamp set and the bundle that includes the stamps and inks to use with them. This is such a unique stamp set. You can use the letter outlines alone or fill them in with stamped colors. 

 

We have a Gothic Vines Fancy Die with Frame. The details on this die are lovely.

 

Paper Layering dies add wonderful dimension to your projects and this month we have a Paper Layering Sunflower die - perfect as a focal point.

Next up is the Autumn Icons Fancy Dies set. These give you an easy way to add autumnal details to your projects with simple die cutting. 

Last but not least, we have an ink cube set filled with rich hues that will work with any of these products, especially the Color Layering Thanksgiving stamp set.

 

Is your mind spinning with creative ideas? Well, here are some more ideas from our talented Creative Team member, Jayne Nelson:

Jayne: I was having so much fun stamping the beautiful sunflowers in this month's kit that before I knew it, I had stamped enough flowers for two cards. For each of the cards, I started by loosely watercoloring a trimmed panel of watercolor paper. While the paint was drying, I embossed one of the seasonal sentiments from this month's kit onto two strips of vellum. When the paint dried, I wrapped the sentiment strips around the watercolor panels and then machine-stitched along the upper and lower edges of each piece. I used Cerulean and Poppy layering paper to mat the panels and to create card bases.

MMH September 2017 by Jayne Nelson for Hero Arts

Next, I stamped four sunflower blooms with Dandelion, Butter Bar and Soft Brown inks for the petals and Soft Brown and Cup O' Joe inks for the flower centers, carefully aligning each stamp layer. I also stamped two leafy stems with Soft Olive and Forever Green inks. After quickly cutting around these images with the kit's matching dies, I cut two of the flowers into two halves and then secured each half along each card's left and right edges. Next, I added a stem and a foam-mounted sunflower to each card. I finished the cards by adding three blue gems, twine bows around the folded edges, and one of the pretty sunflower charms, included in this month's kit, over each bow.

Thanks Jayne!
