August My Monthly Hero Kit Launch Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to Hero Arts My Monthly Hero August Blog Hop! I am absolutely honored and thrilled to be invited to take part in this month's My Monthly Hero launch blog hop! Thanks so much for the invitation, Libby and Hero Arts! =) If you arrived from Cheiron Brandon's Blog, you are on the right track! If not, you can start the hop from The Hero Arts Blog! Here is my card for the hop.


This month's kit is called A Midsummer Night's Dream featuring a gorgeous forest fairy theme. There are also add-on stamps with Shakespeare quotes.


I got to play with the beautiful stamp set that is included in the main kit. I absolutely adore the little fairies! She and the toadstool and fern are colored on Rustic White cardstock with Copic markers and the fairy is die cut using the matching die that is also included in the main kit.

Here is a look of the what's included in the main kit.
A 4x6 clear stamp set
Three matching Frame Cuts dies
An oval border with Fame Fancy Die set
Pretty Pink Posh Droplets
Ranger Star Dust Stickles
Three ink cubes in Bubble Gum, Orchid and Green Apple
Woodgrain Cardstock and Vellum
Other gems and cardstock
It's jam packed with goodies. The kit value is over $50 and it's selling this one for $34.99!!!


And oh, I can't tell you how beautiful the Frame Fancy Die set is in this kit! They are so versatile! I cut one out using the matching cardstock and colored a night sky-ish background on the card front for the sentiment to sit on. It's so easy to make a pretty scene with those dies and stamps! =)

That's all I have. It's time to send you to Helen Gullett's Blog! Don't forget to leave comments along the way. ONE lucky commenter will receive this awesome kit as prize! The winner will be selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Here is the full blog hop list:

I love the simplicity on the card. The mushroom effect and the blue color. The fairies are so cute and whimsical! Love it! Hero Arts kit is a mixed of elegance and magical vibe! I love it and it is perfect for my card making projects. I've been sending letters to different part of the world and my letters will look so beautiful with the use of these stamps! The Shakespearean Poetry Stamp is one of the stamps that I liked the most because of poetry and words on it but I also like the Fairy Stamp and Dreams Are Made Stamp because they are very detailed! I really want this kit and I can't wait to use them and share them with my friends!
