Hero Arts August 2023 My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

 Hola everyone. Thanks for joining Hero Arts in celebrating the August 2023 My Monthly Hero Kit release. If you hopped over from the awesome Mindy Eggen, you are in the right place. To start the hop from the beginning, visit the Hero Arts Blog. The entire hop list can be found at the bottom of this post, along with the giveaway information.

Our August release was inspired by a recent trip the Hero Arts owners took to Yosemite National Park! With dies to cut out trees, mountains, plateaus and fields of wildflowers, the amount of scenes that can be created is endless.

For my first card, I used the Park Scene Fancy dies.

For the die-cuts, I used the cardstock and embossing powder included in the Classic kit. 

I used a Journaling Photo Frame Infinity Die to create a "Polaroid" photo.

The sentiment is included I the 4" X 6" clear stamp set included in the 
Classic kit. 

For my second card, I used an add-on to this month's Kits-Bear Hug Stamp & Cut which includes a coordinating frame cut and sentiments. 

For the background, I used the the Etched Winter Scene Bold Prints to  heat emboss Detail White powder onto Pitch Black cardstock.

I stamped, die-cut and adhered the bears onto the card front with foam tape for dimension. 

I stamped, trimmed and adhered the sentiment to the card front. 

I stamped and adhere a sentiment to the card. 

I hope the August 2023 Classic Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit inspires you to create a variety of cards.

Next on the hop is the talented Seeka! Thanks for taking a peek!
