Hero Arts | February 2021 My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hello there and welcome as we countdown to the release of the Hero Arts February 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit. Release day is Monday, 1st February 2021 but today and all weekend long, we will be sharing inspiration with you using the kit. The kit this month has a wonderful Hawaii feel to it. I fell in love with the palm tree (I have a big soft spot for them) so I made that the focus of my card today.

I started off my card by stamping the palm tree from the main stamp set in the kit on to white cardstock using Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. I then coloured it using Copic Markers (the colours that I used are listed below the supplies area) and die cut it out using the coordinating dies in the kit. 

I took a piece of masking paper and die cut out a square from it using one of the Hero Arts Nesting Square Infinity Dies. This was placed on to the front of a Hero Arts Dove White Top Folding Card Base. I then added lines inside the square using Post-It Tape, to mask them off. Using ink blending brushes, I blended on Hero Arts Reactive Inks in Lemon Drop, Creamsicle and Taffy

The masks were all removed and the sentiment from the main stamp set in the kit stamped with more Intens-ified Black Ink. The palm tree was added on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added Hero Arts Clear Enamel Dots

  36. I like the way you combined this simple hello card. The fresh spring colors along with the palm take you where one would like to be. This kit has beautiful font sentiments, I am really going to start crafting again when I get my kit, because it’s so island friendly thank it invites me to wanting to craft. I have all my kits since December 2017, but my health doesn’t give me the strength to craft so I have them new. I will start with the February 2021 back to December 2017.
