VIDEO: June 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit Release & Blog Hop

Hello friends! It’s finally time for the new Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit for June 2022! This kit and add ons are absolutely gorgeous! Underwater themes are some of my absolutely favorites to create.

In my video today, I will be showing multiple ways to create underwater backgrounds using the Mermaid Reactive Palette Ink Pad from the kit.


You can check out the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I will be walking you through my process so down below I will be sharing the main supplies used. I don’t create a card with every background I make but I hope it gives you some ideas and inspiration on the possibilities. You may see these backgrounds pop up in future cards though.

First, let’s take a look at the kit.

Included in this month’s kit:

  • 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
  • 8 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • Mermaid Reactive Palette Ink Pad
  • Self Adhesive Pearl Gems
  • Waterflow Brush

One of my favorite things from the kit is the Mermaid Reactive Palette Ink Pad. These colors are so gorgeous and I used it many times throughout the video.

Now on to some inspiration!





We will give away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, June 12th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.


All the fun starts on the Hero Arts Blog.

If you arrived here from Michelle’s Blog you are in the right spot.

Your next stop in the hop will be Pocono Pam.
