Hero Arts United As One Release

Hello there and welcome to Hero Arts Unity Week! This week at Hero Arts is all about supporting racial justice. Hero Arts have collaborated with Dana Joy and Pocono Pam to release the United As One Stamp Set. Today also see's the release of The Stamping Village We Stand With You Stamp Set so there is lots to celebrate! I will have a list of other artists sharing today below.

For my project today, I thought that I would make a tag using the Hero Arts United As One Stamp Set. I first took the Hero Arts Tag Infinity Die and cut it from Hero Hues Amethyst Cardstock. I wanted the tag to be a little shorter in height, so I cut it to the required length using a guillotine. I took the Hero Arts Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies and cut a heart out of the tag to create a window. I added acetate behind and then cut another tag exactly the same to add on to the back to sandwich the acetate inbetween.
I then took the holding hands image from the Hero Arts United As one Stamp Set, stamped it on to white cardstock with Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink and coloured the hands using Copic Markers before fussy cutting out with scissors. The hands were then added to the tag with foam tape. I took the sentiment from the set and stamped it on to Hero Hues Pitch Black Cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink and applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the tag with tape runner. To finish off, I added twine through the top of the tag.


"Dana Joy, Pocono Pam and Hero Arts are excited to partner in a conscious effort to be intentionally diverse and inclusive. Crafters and cardmakers of color need to feel support, appreciation, and respect when expressing their values, experiences and skin tone in their work. We are celebrating this spirit through unity, and this collaboration is a pathway for everyone to see themselves in their art. We hope the United As One stamp set will encourage makers to become interested and committed to listening and learning from and about each other, and recognize we are all one, united creative community. 100% of net profits from this 6″ x 8″ stamp set will go to Racial Justice charities".
