Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Birthday Card

I am here today with another card using the Hero Arts June 2019 My Monthly Hero kit. I think I kind of like this kit, ok I love this kit.

Hero Arts 2019 June My Monthly Hero kit

On the base of the card I used the Leaf Pattern stencil that came in the kit.

For the green background it is hard to see in the photo but I stamped some grasses and plants using Versamark ink.

All the critters and flower at the bottom of the card were stamped with brown ink and colored with Copics.

When putting together the branch I accidently used brown heat embossing on that because I thought my other images had the same. I like things kind of uniform. But as it turns out that worked out well to give that branch more dimension. It is also Copic colored.

All of the images were cut out using the dies that came with the kit.

The sentiment is from that kit also.

Hero Arts My Monthly Hero June 2019

Hello! I used the My Monthly Hero June 2019 kit on all of these cards. It is a jungle theme and I really like this kit. I made several cards around the same time. I needed a bunch of Thank You cards. If you have not seen the card kits by Hero Arts you should check them out. Such fun and such a good price for what you get.

I already posted this card for my Flickr Scramble post but wanted to include all of them in this post.

Supplies: Oxide Distress ink, Reverse Confetti Thanks die, Copic pens

For this card I smooshed some Oxide Distress inks on my kraft mat and spritzed with water. I then put some watercolor paper down on it. I let that dry. Then I stamped all these leaves on that watercolor paper and die cut them out with the dies in the MMH kit. I glued them all to the green paper. For the sentiment I used a two layer die to cut out the thanks, glued them together and then on to the card.

This card was for a friend who decorated for my birthday party that had a tropical theme. I think this works well considering that. I clear embossed the animals and plants and then colored them in. Then I used the dies to cut them out. I will say it came out decent but I am not sure I would do that again for this set for images when I am thinking of coloring them and cutting them out. For the background that the critters are on I ink blended and then cut that rectangle out with a die. For the main background I stamped the leaves and then clear embossed them which I think works well for a background like this.

Supplies: Clear Embossing Powder, Copic pens, Simon Says Stamp Sketchy Banner Greetings stamp set, My Favorite Things Pierced Rectangles die set

And now for this last one for this post… I used the leaf pattern stencil that came with the MMH kit on the background. Since this is a long (about 9 inches) card I had to move the stencil over and continue inking. For the background under the animals I stamped grass using Versamark ink. It is hard to see in the photo. Then I stamped all the animals and actually looked up some of the animals to color them. I used the dies that came with the kit to cut them all out.

Supplies: Copic pens, Altenew Painted Greetings stamp set

I guess you could say I really like this kit!! I had fun creating all these.

Hero Arts Scramble

One of the Flickr Hero Arts group members brought back the Scramble, at least a one time Scramble! Very nice of Cindy to do that. The thing about the Scrambles is you have to make a card in 90 minutes and get it posted in the Flickr group. I always enjoyed them even though sometimes it is a big scramble to get a card done. I had to practice with a few cards before I could get it down to 90 minutes. So now I have several in progress cards. That is a good thing because I need about 8 thank you cards right about now.

Here is my card that I made using the Hero Arts June 2019 My Monthly Hero kit. I noticed that the ones they are releasing around this time of year are the ones that really catch my eye.

For the background on this card I smooshed a couple of colors of Oxide ink on my craft mat. I then sprayed some water on it. I took a piece of watercolor paper and put that on it. I let that layer dry and then did another round.

For the animals I stamped them using Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I colored them in with Copics and die cut them. The elephant has a touch of gold from a metallic Gelly Roll pen on his headress. I actually looked up some of the animals on the internet to see their coloring. Let me just say leopards have the most beautiful coats. This is such a fun set! Lot’s of animals and plants and fun sayings.

The sentiment is die cut from white paper and I colored it with a Copic pen to have it be one of the colors I used on the animals.
