Hey Friends! Today I am sharing a card I made with the May My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts.
To start my card I used the Flower Stencil and Azalea, Papaya, and Lemon Yellow inks. Next, I cut the Tri-Fold fancy dies out of Pitch Black Cardstock. The sentiments I used were from the 6×8 stamp set found in the kit.

Hey, friends! I am back again today with a card I made using products from the newest Hero Arts release.
I started this card by masking off the edges of an A2 sized piece of Distress Heavystock. I blended lightly with Splash and Pool Party reactive inks. Next, I used the Daisy Mosaic stencil and blended Blue Hawaii and Blue Rasberry inks on top for a tone-on-tone look. I added some of the cattail stamps on the bottom of my blended portion of the panel and stamped the greeting.
I pulled out the Color Layering Duckling stamp set. I used Lemon Yellow, Butter Bar, and Caramel inks to make this adorable little duck. My final step was to splatter a little White Iridescent Shimmer Mist over the panel.
Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card!

Hello friends! I am very excited to be joining Hero Arts for their spring catalog release blog hop today! I had so much fun making this card and it actually came together pretty quickly.
I started with 2 A2 size pieces of heavyweight cardstock. I pulled out a few colors of Reactive inks and decided to do some ink smooshing. I like to do one color at a time so I can layer them instead of blending them all together. Either way will work.
I used Blue Rasberry, Pool Party, and Blue Hawaii for this card. I also decided to add some gold Glimmer Metallic ink on top. Next, I did tone on tone stamping on top with my favorite stamp of all time, Novel Prose. I love text stamps. It can add so much and be so subtle at the same time. After that was dry I die cut it using the Birds and Flowers cover plate.
Then I grabbed my second piece of A2 cardstock and added some splatters in the same colors. I finished it off with a stamp from the Let’s Celebrate stamp set and I heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I used thin strips of foam tape to attach the two panels together. I attached them both to a card base with liquid glue and finished it off with a few clear gems.
Something else launching today is the Spring Stamp-Along. The event will take place April 23-24 with a keynote address happening April 22. You can sign up here. Hero Arts has added a bundle of new products that will be used for the event and you can check those out here.
I hope you enjoyed my card today and thank you for stopping by.

Hello! Today I am sharing a layout I made that features the new polka dot stencil from Paige Evans.
To start, I cut a balloon cut file (design ID 257768) on my silhouette. I ended up cutting some of the balloons off of it so that it would work with the idea I had. I wanted the cut file to look like it was coming out of the photo.
While my machine was cutting, I used the stencil to heat emboss on vellum. I wanted the balloons to look realistic, so I colored on the back of them with copic markers. Once that was done, I backed the cut file with the heat embossed vellum.
Next, I used the stencil with embossing paste on a piece of white 12×12 cardstock. I had a little fun with the Altenew watercolors. I picked colors that would match the colors in my Daughter’s shirt in this photo.
Next, it was time to start adding embellishments. I was happy that my color scheme went along with the colors in the Whimsical collection from Pink Paislee.
I really enjoyed making this layout and I hope you like it, too!
Thank you for stopping by.
