Hero Arts October 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there, today we are celebrating the release of the Hero Arts October 2019 My Monthly Hero Kit. The kit is winter/Christmas based and has a fun retro vibe to it. For the hop, you should have arrived here from Mariana, but if you get lost along the way, I have the full list of participants below.


I love the images for scene building in this kit but I also fell in love with the font on the sentiments and thought it would be fun to combine these with the papers in the kit, to make some tags.


I started off by die cutting the blue and teal neon cardstock from the kit using one of the dies from the Hero Arts Ornaments Infinity Dies set. I then took Reactive Inks and blended these on to the bottom section of the ornaments. Kind of like the glass ornaments that you can get. I used Hero Arts Blue Hawaii Reactive Ink for the teal cardstock and Hero Arts Grape Slush Reactive Ink for the blue cardstock.


I then spritzed them with the Hero Arts White Iridescent Shimmer Spray and set them aside to dry. Sadly, the sparkle doesn't show up that well in the photos but in real life, the sparkle is so pretty! Once the ornaments were dry, I stamped the sentiments from the stamp set in to the middle using Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink.


I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. I then stamped the snowflake images on the teal tag and the retro shaped images on the purple one. They were also heat embossed in white. I die cut a further two tags from Hero Arts Dove White Cardstock and adhered these to the backs of the stamped ones.


I die cut two ornament topper pieces from the Chrome cardstock in the kit and added these to the top of the ornaments. To finish off, I added a twine bow at the top of each tag.


I also wanted to quickly share the card that I made for the countdown on the Hero Arts Blog. This card uses some of the images from the kit that I stamped using Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink and then coloured using Copic Markers. They were cut out using the coordinating dies in the kit and then adhered together so that the presents are in the boot/trunk of the car and the tree on top.

 
The background was created my simply blending Hero Arts Pool Party Reactive Ink on to a panel of white cardstock and spritzing over the same White Iridescent Shimer Spray, as well as Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain in Picket Fence. The sentiment was then stamped the in top left hand corner and the car added at the bottom with foam tape. To finish off, I added Prisma Glitter that comes in the kit to the top of the tree, car and presents.
