Hero Arts - January 2020 My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway!






Hello!  I'm thrilled to be guesting for Hero Arts today.  Their January My Monthly Hero kit releases today!  You should have arrived here from Amy Kolling's blog!  If not, you'll want to start at the beginning which is the Hero Arts blog.

Isn't it gorgeous?!


4x6 clear stamp set
14 coordinating fancy dies
5.5" x 8.5"  Sheets of Cardstock [Gold Breeze, Kraft, Fireweed, Rose]
Pink Sparkle Embossing Powder 0.5 oz
Aqua Glimmer Metallic Ink
2 yards Pink Satin Ribbon

Pre-order your kit today!  Shipping begins Friday, January 10th and continues throughout the following week.

Today I have the pleasure of featuring the CM433 Cup of Love set:


If you've been following me for any length of time, you know how much I ADORE caffeinated craftiness!  Check out the coordinating Cup of Love Frame Cuts:


YES!  Each of those dies actually cuts the interior handle detail work too!

I managed to design two cards especially for today!  Here's my first one.  The base is Decorative Woodgrain Cardstock.  Don't you love the texture?


I teamed up the coffee pot and the mug with the flowers.  They've been stamped in black and colored with copic markers. 


Since the overall design is so clean + crisp, I decided to add a strip of cork and stamp the sentiment directly on it.


I love how the aqua mug POPS.

My next card is a shaker card that features the Ombre' Blush Sequins:


Sigh, acetate is so persnickety and hates to be photographed.  I used the same woodgrain and cork on this card but mixed it up a bit.  The window has been cut with the Nesting Ovals Infinity dies.


Using the Nesting Rectangle Infinity Dies on the cork panel made things so easy!  I filled up my card with TONS of the sequins and it makes a glorious shaker noise.

  
 I'm in full Valentine's Day mode, how about you?


I can't wait to hop around and see how everyone was inspired.  Next up is the awesome Caly Person!


Remember to leave comments as you hop along.  Hero Arts will be giving away one $50 Gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop.  enter by Sunday, January 12th at 11:59 pm pacific.  The winner will be posted on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
