I fell in love with Breakfast at Tiffany’s back in high school after learning about the movie from a tv show. Since then, I’ve collected many Breakfast at Tiffany’s inspired items, watched the movie countless times, and have collected many Tiffany Blue hued possessions. Here I am telling people I don’t have a favorite color when clearly, I am drawn to anything and everything in this shade of beautiful blue 😉
A week or so ago, when I saw May Park’s card on Instagram featuring a stamp set that featured Audrey Hepburn-esque images from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, I KNEW I had to get this stamp set.
I’ve never purchased a Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit until this month in addition to an additional stamp set :You are Fabulous. You can find out about the Hero Arts monthly kits at the very beginning of each month where lovely designers showcase inspiration and sneak peeks. From what I’ve heard, these kits sell out pretty quickly so I pre-ordered mine asap. Find out what the monthly kits are all about here.
In this kit, I received some really elegant and classy items:
► 6″x8″ clear stamp set
► 18 coordinating Frame Cuts dies
► 1 bottle Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal Drops (Duck Egg Blue)
► 3 ink cubes (Lavender, Light Teal, Midnight)
► 2 half sheets Onyx shimmer cardstock (5.5″ x 8.5″)
► 2 half sheets Pink shimmer cardstock (5.5″ x 8.5″)
► 2 half sheets Tiffany Blue cardstock (5.5″ x 8.5″)
► 18″ long pearl string
► Themed paper clips
I paid $34.99 for the kit and $15.99 for the You Are Fabulous stamp set. Thankfully shipping was free! My order wasn’t supposed to be released (per the website) until Friday, April 7th but I got it the day of! Secure packaging and speedy shipping! I would highly recommend checking out future sets and add-ons!
For this card, I used one of the half sheets of the Tiffany Blue cardstock and a Sizzix circle die to cut out the middle. With that Tiffany Blue cardstock, I stamped images from the kit’s stamp set in the Hero Arts Light Teal ink cube and Simon Says Stamp White pigment ink. I stamped the face silhouette and a sentiment in the Midnight ink cube on some Neenah cardstock. I mounted the card panel onto a card base and used foam tape to pop up the circular piece. Finally, I used the Tonic Studios Nuvo Crystal drops for the first time! I was seriously nervous I would mess this up but I’m pleased with the dimensional look I got!
This was a fun card and I loved the kit! I can’t say I am wanting to jump into being a monthly subscriber, but the quality of the kit and the shipping experience I’ve had make a convincing case or a recommendation to someone else who may be interested.
Have you seen Breakfast at Tiffany’s? What do you think of this fun release?!
