Hero Arts | March 2022 My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, today we are celebrating the release of the Hero Arts March 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit and add-ons. The theme this month is art museum and there are lots of different ways to use these products, so let your creativity run wild! I have already shared one card using the main kit, which you can see here. For that card, I focused on the stamp set but there is a fun die in the kit too, which I will be using today. 

This post is part of a fun, inspiration filled blog hop with prizes. Please see below for more details.

For my first card, I am using the Hero Arts March 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit only. I started off by die cutting the Fancy Window Die from white cardstock. I then coloured the people, floor and bench with Copic Markers. There are lots of different ways to add colour to this die cut, you can also leave it completely colour free and that looks amazing too! 


On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the splatters from the stamp set. I used Hero Arts Orchid, Mulled Wine and Rose Madder Bold Inks. I actually had some blue ink left on my stamp from making my countdown card, so the Rose Madder ended up purple! I then stamped some splatters on top using Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink


I added the splatter piece to a 4.75" x 6" white card base. I then added the window frame on top with foam tape. I took the sentiment from the set and stamped it on to Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to two strips and added to the card with more foam tape. 

There are so many things you can do for the painting/window that they are looking at. You could create some really fun scenes. Libby has even made it in to an aquarium! So cool!


My next card uses the new Hero Arts Picasso Inspired Stencil, which is an add-on for the release. I started off by adding Pixie Spray to the back of it then placed it on to a panel of white cardstock. Using Ink Blending Brushes, I blended on tons of different Hero Arts Inks in shades of blue (they are all linked in the supplies list). Although a lot of Picasso's work was bold, primary colours, he did do some work in blues and greens, so I thought I would go with that for my card today. 


The panel was cut down to 3.75" x 5" and simply adhered to a white A2 card base with foam tape. I took the sentiment from the Hero Arts Creative Quotes Stamp Set and stamped it on to Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with thin foam tape.
