Hero Arts August MMH kit

Hi everyone! Sharing a card today using the August Hero Arts MMH kit. I’ve been a subscriber to this kit since May and I’ve really been impressed with the kits so far. I love how different this month’s theme is. I don’t have a lot of fantasy/medieval type stamps so this has been fun to work with and definitely out of my usual wheelhouse.

I purchased several of the add-ons to this kit starting with the Trefoil Bold Prints cling stamp that I heat embossed on the background panel. I love this print and I think it will work well with other themes too.

I die-cut the Medieval Flags die a couple of times from gray, black and a sparkly black cardstock and layered them slightly off-set to help the flag stand out from the background. I’ve also inked a portion of the flag with Dusty Concord Distress ink and then used the Stained Glass stencil inked with Seedless Preserves.

I colored the image from the main kit with Copics and used the coordinating die from the kit. The fleur-de-lis dies are also a part of the kit and I’ve die-cut them from a sparkly silver cardstock.

I finished the card by stamping and heat embossing a few sentiments from the kit.

I made this card for my husband’s birthday yesterday and I stamped the “Happy day of thy birth” sentiment inside. Too funny! Just love the sentiments with these stamps!

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!

Turtle Woes

Hi there! Can you believe it’s Hero Arts 45th anniversary this year?! That’s an amazing accomplishment!! I thought I’d share a card today using their cute “Pet Turtle” stamps. This little guy looks so bummed that he missed someone’s birthday!

I know the colors aren’t your typical bright and happy birthday colors, but he looks like he feels bad for being late to the party so I just went with it.

Clean and simple design here that I started by taping off a strip at the bottom for the sentiment and inking with a gradient of Walnut Stain, Vintage Photo and Old paper Distress inks. I then taped off that strip and inked above it with Shabby Shutters and used a “Stone Increase” stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop with Crushed Olive.

I splattered a little Dr. PH Martin’s Saddle Brown radiant watercolor for extra interest and colored up the little turtle with Copics.

To finish, I heat embossed the sentiment and added a few strips of patterned paper from my stash.

Hope you enjoyed and thanks for stopping by!
