Hello everyone! I was so excited when Libby invited me to be part of the blog hop revealing the July My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts!! It is a ocean lovers dream!!!
Edited to add: technical difficulties are over!! Whoo hoo! Thank you to everyone who left me a comment and took note to come back and check out my blog again, I really appreciate it!
I didn’t really think I could fall in love with an octopus…until now. WOW! I just love how it comes alive when you stamp the two layers.
Hero Arts is donating 10% of the profits from the July 2016 MMH kit to ocean preservation through the World Wildlife Foundation. This is something that is near and dear to my heart.
The kit is AVAILABLE now and contains:
- A large 6×8 stamp set
- Matching Frame Cuts dies
- Ombré Dolphin ink pad **
- Lucy’s Sequins Mermaid mix, made exclusively for Hero Arts
- 2 half sheets of Aqua Lagoon metallic cardstock
