Hero Arts Monthly Kit

Today I am posting cards three and four from the Hero Arts March Monthly Kit.

I was reminded of the best crafting advice I ever received, while I was making card four.  The late great Christy Riopel once told me, “If you don’t like it, it just isn’t done yet.”  I can tell you that card four in its’ original 6 X 6 size was a hot mess…………….. I thought it was just plain “done” and destined for the big round file.   Just like Christy predicted though, it just “wasn’t done YET.”  When I trimmed it to a narrow panel and added a  complementary background, it was a keeper.

Hero Arts March Kit

I am loving the Monthly Hero Arts Kits.  The large stamp set, that is just one part of the kit, provides a lot of inspiration.  When you add in the dies and the add on selections that are available, the possibilities are endless.

I have a goal of making at least 10 cards in quick succession from each kit.  While I haven’t finished yet, the first two cards turned out quite well.  Take a look:

Hero Arts December Kit

Sometimes in life, we get a surprise.  When I began to work with the contents of the December Hero Arts, it was one of those times.  At first glance, I was thinking “yuck” ………………fairies…………..mice………….and dandelions as the theme for the kit.  Clearly, none of these is on my favourites list.    I ended up being surprised to find that I liked the images and the ideas for cards just kept flowing.  I had been watching a few tutorials that were of the “10 cards 1 kit” variety and I decided to see if I could replicate this.  You are going to think that I can’t count as there are only seven cards in this post.  Truth is, I had to stop, not because I was out of ideas, but rather because I needed to clean up and pack up my stuff for the trip to Phoenix.

I ended up being very happy with the cards.  They are all different and yet all seem to evoke smiles and happy thoughts.  Enjoy!
