Hero Arts February 2023 My Monthly Hero Kit Release: Beautiful Butterflies

 Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to the  My Monthly Hero Kit February 2023 Blog Hop! You should have arrived from the fantastic Jessica Frost-Ballas but if you're just popping in you'll want to head over to the Hero Arts Blog
 so you don't miss any of the inspiration along the hop or the giveaway!

Hero Arts is generously giving away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, February 12th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog.

This hop is a little different because Hero Arts actually has two kits you can choose from! Who doesn't like options?!

Our February My Monthly Hero Classic Kit features a favorite theme for many stampers - butterflies! Presented in a unique way, combined with flowers, stars and moons, the fluttering butterflies create a gorgeous window die. Coordinating layering stencils make adding color to your die cut a breeze. There is a palette ink pad that includes Thistle, Taffy, Creamsicle, Lemon Drop, and Key Lime Fizz Reactive Inks, and a perfectly sized small blending brush. A 3x4 stamp set includes both uplifting and everyday sentiments, and the kit is rounded out with cardstock, both solid and shimmery. The Classic kit is $34.99 with the subscription and $36.99 to purchase with no subscription. You can subscribe here.

This Premium version of the kit that includes additional elements to extend the potential for more cards and techniques - even more Creativity In The Box! There are four sheets of beautiful butterfly Hero Transfers, a butterfly die set that can be used to cut out the rub-on images but also stands alone, and an exclusive Fuchsia & Gold Luster Duo Spray that will be sure to make you swoon! The Premium kit is $47.99 with the subscription and $49.99 to purchase with no subscription. You can subscribe here.

I've created cards using both kits and they are both wonderful options!


This card uses the Classic Kit to create a rainbow shaker card. I die cut the wreath of butterflies and then used the color layering stencils to lay down a rainbow of reactive inks. I used the last stencil to add shine with Glitter Hero Paste. 


I also used the die to cut out some black craft foam. I chose black to create some contrast in the card. I adhered card front and the craft foam. I stamped my sentiment onto the acetate before adding it in and then adding my shaker bits. 


This card you might have seen this past weekend, and uses the Premium Kit. I did a lot of the same things including popping the card front up on craft foam. However, this time I skipped the stencils and let the beautiful die cut butterflies be the star of the show.  


I added some details to my ink blended butterflies using a white gel pen and glitter. 
I will have a video up shortly on how I created this one. 



This card uses the Beautiful Butterflies Bundle. I knew I could stamp, cut and color them but I wanted to try something different. I created a scene behind the butterflies and then die cut them out to show the scene a little differently. I'm not sure how successful it was but you never know until you try! 

Your next stop is my always amazing friend, Lydia Fiedler 
Thanks so much for stopping by!
