My Monthly Hero July Release Blog Hop

Untitled

  Hello and welcome to the July release Blog Hop for the My Monthly Hero kit. This month is a fabulous kit that I know you are going to love!


This month's kit features a gorgeous ocean theme, with jellyfish, octopus and sea turtles, and lots of coral. Octopus are very trendy right now - who knew? Hero Arts is going to donate 10% of profits for our July 2016 MMH Kit to ocean preservation through the World Wildlife Foundation!


The main kit includes:


A large 6x8 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
2 half sheets of Silver Swirl text weight paper

All of this for only $34.99! The kit is valued at over $60!!

Here is the card I created for today's Blog Hop:



I used the Color Layering Octopusu add on stamp set with matching dies to create my card. 


Be sure to visit all the fabulous stampers playing along with today's blog hop! Thanks for stopping by!
