Hero Arts | May 2024 My Monthly Hero Countdown to Creativity

Hello there and welcome as we countdown to the Hero Arts May 2024 My Monthly Hero release. The kits and add-ons release tomorrow (Monday 6th May 2024) and all weekend long we have been sharing inspiration using the kits. If you missed any of the earlier posts from my teamies, please head over to the Hero Arts Blog to catch up! 

Since it is Hero Arts 50th anniversary this month, the kit is birthday and celebration themed!

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

For my card today, I am using the Hero Arts May 2024 My Monthly Hero Premium Kit. I started off by stamping the Balloon Background Cling Stamp from the kit onto Hero Arts Deluxe Smooth White Cardstock using Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts Detail White Embossing Powder and heat set. 

Using Hero Arts Large Ink Blending Brushes, I blended Hero Arts Reactive Inks on top. I used (top to bottom) Key lime Fizz, Blue Raspberry, Blue Hawaii and Purple Galaxy. I removed any excess ink from the embossed lines using a dry cloth and then splattered with a little water on top, before setting aside to dry. Once dry, I die cut the Congrats Fancy Die from the kit into the middle of the panel. I also cut it another four times from white cardstock. 

I placed a piece of scrap paper on the back of the panel and then popped the white die cut pieces inside, followed by the middle pieces of the background panel, adhering with Hero Arts Precision Glue. I then popped the background die cut on top, to complete the eclipse look. The panel was adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few enamel dots - some from the kit and some from the Aquas and Blues packs.
