Hero Studio - July Blog Hop and Giveaway!

 Hi friends. It's the release of Hero Arts July Hero Studio Card Kit & Extras. 

We are celebrating with a blog hop and giveaway!

There is amazing inspiration you'll find throughout the hop. Leave comments along the way! 

 One lucky winner will receive a $50 Hero Arts gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, July 7th at 11:59pm PT, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week. 

My card features the Layering Stamp sets and dies from the Kit which includes all the elements seen here.

Let's get started on how I created my card.

1. Stamp clouds with Passion Flower and Dusty Blue Core Inks on Dove White Card stock.

2. Stamp waves with Deep Ocean, Aquatic and Summer Sky Core Inks.

3. Randomly ink area around waves with Clear Embossing & Watermark ink Ink, apply Sand Embossing Powder and heat set.

4. Lightly ink over clouds with Butter Bar Core ink.

5. Stamp the tiny beach houses, shells, balloon and girl with Dusty Blue, Passion Flower, Deep Ocean and Green Hills Core Inks. Cut with coordinating dies. 

6. Stamp the little girls holding hands with Intensified Black Ink and cut with coordinating die.

7. Stamp the birds directly on the inked panel with Intensified Black Ink

8. Stamp the sentiment on Pitch Black Cardstock with Clear Embossing Ink, apply White Embossing Powder and heat set. Cut with coordinating die.

9. Adhere die cuts and sentiment with Precision Glue.

Along with the release of the kit and new subscription options, there are some extra products which can all be found here.

I am featuring the Layering Stencil of the Month.

I used Paradise, Aquatic, Deep Ocean, Tangerine, Pumpkin and Butter Bar Core Inks with this sweet  fish stencil, overlapping the inks to add a fun blend of colors. 

I thought a shaker card design will be perfect for this stencil. I did however make an easier version of a shaker card by inserting the inked panel into a clear packet (The same packets that stamp sets come in), added sequins, closed the packet by adding double sided tape to the back and adhered to my card front.

I die cut one of the Arches Infinity Dies from Adriatic Card Stock for the front of the clear insert for the window and adhered with Precision Glue.

 I stamped the sentiment on Adriatic Cardstock with Clear Embossing Ink, applied White Embossing Powder and heat set. Cut with coordinating die.

Thank you for stopping by and have fun hopping!
