Hero Arts March 2020 My Monthly Hero Kit Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there and welcome as we celebrate the release of the Hero Arts March 2020 My Monthly Hero Kit. The kit this month features a HeroScape stamp set and has a lovely Japanese feel to it. If you are following along in the hop, you should have arrived here from the Hero Arts Blog but if you get lost along the way, I have the full list of participants listed below.

 
The first project that I am sharing with you is one that I shared over on the Hero Arts Blog yesterday for the countdown. I simply stamped the beautiful tree from the main stamp set on to a panel of white cardstock. I used Hero Arts Charcoal Mid-Tone Shadow Ink for the tree trunk and Hero Arts Thistle and Grape Slush Reactive Inks for the tree top. The sentiment was then simply stamped to the side before adhering to a white card base with foam tape. I finished off with a few jewels.


My next card uses both the tree and the grass from the stamp set. I first took a panel of white cardstock and stamped the grass on to it using Hero Arts Green Apple Bold Ink for the first layer. I then stamped the second layer with Hero Arts Fresh Lawn Mid-Tone Shadow Ink. I stamped the tree top with the same inks, followed by the trunk in Hero Arts Cup O' Joe Mid-Tone Shadow Ink.

 
The sentiment was then stamped with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. I took the second largest of the Hero Arts Tag Infinity Dies and die cut the panel using it. I then added twine through the top of the tag and tied in a bow. I scored lines in the front of a top folding card base using a score board and bone folder and then added the tag on top with foam tape.


For my last card today I went a little different! I first cut a Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Die from a sheet of mask paper. I placed this on to a panel of white cardstock and then blended inks through it. I used Hero Arts Dandelion, Tangerine and Strawberry Bold Inks. The mask was removed and then the tree stamped with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink.

 
I took the sentiment from the Hero Arts Zen Messages Stamp Set (which is an add-on this month) and stamped it below the tree top to the left. The panel was adhered on to a top folding card base with foam tape. To finish off, I die cut the smallest heart from the Hero Arts Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies set from Hero Hues Cherry Cardstock. It was adhered to the tree with liquid glue and then I added a coating of Hero Arts Crystal Clear Lacquer Pen on the top.
