Hero Arts: My Monthly Hero February 2017

Hello Crafters! 

I'm so excited to part of Hero Arts monthly kit release! 
All of their kits have been amazing and this one is no exception. 

If You're hopping along you should have arrived from the amazing Debby Hughes 
If you're just stopping in you can start at The Hero Arts Blog  Believe me you won't want to miss one stop on this hop. 


Kit contents

1 4X6 clear stamp set

20 coordinating dies

1 coordinating stencil, with several cutouts included

1 Soft Sky ink cube

1 sponge for daubing 

2 thin rolls of glitter washi tape in blue and silver 

1 skein silver embroidery thread
Vellum in blue and patterned white 


The kit value is $70, an amazing deal at $34.99. 

With every kit Hero Arts also release tons of adorable add-ons. I used some of them to create my card today. 
This is the Fun in the Rain stamp set and I just couldn't get over those critters. Seriously, you can't help but smile! 
I also used the Nesting Clouds Infinity Dies. 
I know, I used a die. I'll wait while you pick yourself up off the floor. 

Good to go? 
Great. Let's get to the card! 



Eeep! I love them playing in the puddles!! I wanted to catch them just as the storm was over. Did it work? What do you think? 

You can see all the details in the video below. I know it's a hop and if you need to come back, no worries. It'll be here. Promise. 


Even though we had some set backs ultimately I loved the way the card came out. These little critters are show stealers for sure!


Make sure if you want to get the kit you snatch it up while you can. They are available on a first come first serve basis and when they are gone, they're gone. 

You have a chance to win one as Hero Arts is giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader - selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. 
They will reimburse you if you have already bought the kit. The Giveaway closes Sunday, February 12 at 11:59pm, and the winner will be announced the following week.
