May My Monthly Hero

So excited to share the May My Monthly Hero kit with you today.  Definitely a few things to “lift” our spirits during a crazy, crazy time. Look at all of the goodies included in this kit:




So much cuteness for cards and decorative envelopes! And, I’m partial to the Karin DecoBrush Metallic markers for handletterings, splatters and a few fun faux-foil techniques. This kit of adorable sweetness is AVAILABLE TODAY. If you are new to the My Monthly Hero kit, please know they tend to sell out quickly. Do not delay.

Hero Arts is estimating that shipping for the MMH kits will begin on May 15, and continue until all boxes have shipped. Thank you for your patience, continued support for Hero Arts, and your kind wishes during this time.

I loved the little hot air balloon image, and I paired it with the Karin Metallic Gold DecoBrush for a faux-foiled sentiment and matted layer. This is a trick I use often with heat embossing, and the markers make it a much easier step to color the edges of a matting layer for metallic pop! The sentiment was created by applying the marker color direct to the stamp instead of an inkpad.  If you have the Karin Brushmarker PRO, it’s important to know that the DecoBrush Metallic are a pigment cousin to the watercolor Brushmarker PRO. Beautiful, rich metallic colors!

There is always a rainbow at the end of every rain! To make the rain splatters, I simply scribbled the DecoBrush markers on a piece of acetate and flicked with a wet paintbrush.

I’ve colored my rainbow with Graphit Twin Alcohol Markers and given the whole cardfront some metallic splatters. It’s like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow! Love this sweet rainbow image and die. I’ll be using it over and over!

Look at this adorable airplane! Super sweet ‘hello’ and I’ll tuck a gift card “inside for happiness”!  The gold ink was perfect for metal accents.

Another favorite image… hello RAINBOW! I colored this with Polychromos pencils and added spatters a clean and simple love note.

I appreciate you stopping by for the My Monthly Hero blog hop this month! I hope you’ve enjoyed the inspiration.

  15. What fun cards! I especially like the more sunrise or sunset feel of the stenciled clouds on your first card due to the pink/orange/yellow colors you used. It gives it a dreamlike quality that regular blue or grey stenciling does not.
