Autumn Greetings and Hero Arts Monthly Hero Kit

My love for clothes probably ranks up as high as my love for card making.  I have a quarterly clothing subscription that I love and when I found out there was  card subscription available, I was pretty much all in.  There honestly are so many different subscriptions out there but I wanted something that would allow me to get the best bang for my bucks.  After some research, I decided to go with Hero Arts- My Monthly Hero Kit.  I looked at previous kits they offered and liked what I saw (different supplies, stamps, and inks).  My second Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts arrived a while ago, but I haven't had much time to play with it until today!  I love my Hero Arts subscription because you get an awesome kit with new products to try out every month.  The kit usually sells out quickly but as a subscriber, you are guaranteed a kit. It's a great deal because you get about $70 worth of products for $35.  I've received 2 months worth so far and couldn't be happier with what I'm getting.  It's always a great surprise when my Monthly Hero Kit arrives.  To see previous Monthly Hero Kits, go here: 

The following is the September Hero Arts Kit:
The images on the left of the kit are just samples of what can be created with the kit.  These projects are not included in the kit.  The images on the right are the kit contents.  It includes ink cubes, stamps, die cuts, assorted papers, and embellishments.

Here's my card I made from the kit:

I die cut and stamped the pumpkin and leaf images from the September Hero Arts Kit.  I stamped the sentiment "autumn greetings" in Tsukineko Momento Rich Cocoa Ink on Rustic Cream cardstock.  I rounded the corners of the cardstock and blended Distress Ink Oxide in Antique Linen around the edges.  Then I placed the pumpkin and leaf images on it with double sided foam tape.  Next, I die cut a piece of Ripe Avocado cardstock with my Spellbinders Nestibilities die and blended the same color around the edges of the die cut.  I adhered this piece under the Rustic Cream cardstock.  To create the background, I used different images of my Leaf Prints stamp set and stamped various leaves in different colored inks  (Orange Zest,  Canyon Clay, Ripe Avocado, Simply Chartreuse, Dark Chocolate, Summer Sunrise) on white cardstock.  I layered a piece of orange vellum (which was included in my Hero Arts kit) on top of the stamped background and then tied a piece of Rustic Cream baker's twine around the background piece.  I placed this on Ripe Avocado cardstock and then adhered it to a Kraft cardstock base.  Lastly, I added the rustic cream I made at the beginning on top of the background piece.

I enjoyed making this Autumn card and can't wait to make more with my Hero Arts kit.  Thanks for stopping in.
