The kit is available HERE over at Hero Arts.  The kit is available for a limited time only - once it's gone, it's gone. Kits begin shipping from Hero Arts on Friday January 12th. Remember you can subscribe and receive the monthly kit every month!

Along with the kit, you can purchase different add-ons.  I have three projects to share with you today, using the add-ons for this month.

This first card uses the Window on Love Confetti Fancy die and the Happily Ever After stamp...

My Monthly Hero

I cut the Window on Love die out with a light gray cardstock.  Next, I used Copics to make a pink gradient on the center heart.  Last, I stamped and fussy cut the Happily Ever After banner and added it to the card front with foam tape.  Definitely an easy card to whip up with these adorable add-ons.

I have another clean and simple card.  This one uses an amazing die called Paper Layering Floral Heart and a sentiment from the set called Color Layering Rose....

My Monthly Hero

I folded a white card base and used the die cut right on the card front.  This die is so pretty!  It cuts out lots of little pieces that would be perfect for confetti, but it also cuts out little pieces that can be tipped up.  I wanted to keep this clean and simple, so I pulled out and dusted off my old Pebbles chalks and did a little light coloring on the butterflies, leaves and flowers.  I tipped them up so you can see through the die to the light green cardstock that I lined the inside of the card with.  Last, I used a sentiment from Color Layering Rose and tucked it up next to the die cut.

Last, I used this beautiful piece of paper that is new in the Hero Arts store (Ps 771 Lovely Layering paper) to lined a card base.  Next, I used a sentiment from the add-on stamp set called Love Bandit and heat embossed it on black cardstock.  I layered that on top of little white heart die cut and then finished off the card with some black pearls.  

My Monthly Hero

There is lots more to see in today's hop.   Here are a list of stops to make...

  20. The light gray over white really allows the center of the card to take center stage. (Sorry about the pun--it was unintentional, but I decided not to erase it!) Love the floral heart too. It is so elegant. I think I would have to try it in every combination of papers in my stash! Thanks so much.
