Hello everyone, Today I’m excited to share the five cards I made using the Hero Arts July 2020 My Monthly Hero Card Kit. This kit is still available and if you like the Atlantis, underwater theme then this kit is definitely for you.
For my first card, I used the contents of the main kit and created a somewhat monochromatic look to this card. I stamped the layering stamps using Blue Hawaii Reactive ink from the kit, VersaFine Onyx Black ink then clear embossed it, and finally the last layer I stamped with VersaMark Embossing ink and added clear embossing powder to finish.
The background panel was ink blended with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink and faded out towards the top. And finally, I adhered all of the images to the card front and finished this card by adhering the entire panel to an A2 sized top folding white card base.
For the second card, I made a shaker card using an oval die from the Hero Arts Oval Infinity Die set and adhered it to a bright ink blended background panel. I used the reactive inks for this panel and the Fancy Edge die from the main kit.
Since I have been on this slimline card front kick lately, it was only fitting to make at least one slimline card using this kit. I began by die cutting a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with the Trinity Stamps’ Slimline Stitched Card Panels and Window Dies and ink blended the panel followed by ink smooshing several more shades of Distress Oxide inks.
I really wanted a subtle background and muted tones for this card, so I reached for Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink to layer the background stamp. I added black VersaFine ink for the second layer and used the Coral Embossing Powder from the kit for the third layer of the stamp.
To finish this card, I stamped the silhouette of the fish image from the main kit, three times, added glossy accents to the images, and added a few of the clear drops by Studio Katia.
This happens to be my favorite card because of the ink blended panel. I did use Distress Ink for this panel for a more vibrant look. I die cut the panel with the Underwater Pillar Window die and added the jellyfish image from the Need A Hand stamp, which are both add-on items.
And finally, on card number five, I used several of the other images including that adorable octopus from the Need a Hand Stamp set and added the Waves and Clouds background cling stamp over an ink blended panel.
