Hi there! It’s Cha here on the blog A Blog Named Hero for the May challenge 2019 in which we want to congrats Hero Arts company in their 45th anniversary! There are a few days left to join this May challenge for the chance to win a 50$ or 25$ voucher for Hero Arts store!
For today’s card, I picked a past My Monthly Hero kit. If you don’t know these kits, Hero Arts kits (known as My Monthly Hero kits) have been a good investment for new cardmakers in these years because they come with different, new and limited products (see here). The My Monthly Hero kit that I used for my card has to be a must-have product because of the sentiments and word dies that come with this kit… yeah! I’m talking about the My Monthly Hero kit March 2018… and it is still available! Yeah! I invite you to visit their online store and take a look because you can create beautiful and emotive cards with just one kit! In the case that this kit was not available anymore, you could find some alternatives here and here.
First of all, I picked a piece of 5,5 by 4,25-inch white cardstock. For stamping, I just used a medium-size acrylic block. I stamped the small sun that came with the kit here and there until I had my whole panel completed, using different colors inks. I used the inks that came with the kits along these years but they are very similar colors of the Hero Arts ink: mulled wine, navy, aquatic, red royal, rose madder, soft sky, summer sky, butter bar, orchid, orange soda, tangerine, deep ocean, soft granite, cup o ‘joe, pumpkin pie, just rust, and green apple. Now that my piece was full of suns, I also stamped the flower that came with the kit. I stamped this flower on every sun that I’d previously stamped. I followed the chromatic color wheel in order to change the color. For example, if I stamped the sun with butter bar ink, I stamped the flower with orchid or orange soda ink. Also, there were some suns that were so dark, as the navy ones, so I decided to stamp the flower on each of them using the unicorn pigment ink. When I finished stamping all the flowers over the suns, I decided to fill the gaps with some hearts here and there, too.
Later, I used my mini MISTI for stamping the sentiment because I wanted to stamp it several times. I designed the phrase choosing each word from the kit before stamping. When I was satisfied with my phrase, I stamped with black ink and then, heat embossed with clear embossing powder.
I didn’t add anything else due to the shine of the card!
I hope you’ll join this new May challenge 2019 at A Blog Named Hero to a chance to win 50$ or 25$ voucher from Hero Arts! We are waiting for your creations!
