Hero Arts | October 2021 My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hello there and welcome as we countdown to the release of the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero release. The kit and add-ons release tomorrow but we have more inspiration to share with you today, as we have been all weekend long. Make sure to head over to the Hero Arts Blog for inspiration from the rest of the team.

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.



The release this month is all about Victorian Christmas and my card today uses the main die from the kit, as well as the kit stamp set plus an add-on set. I started off by die cutting what could be a shop window or a house front from white cardstock. I think this is supposed to depict the outside looking in but I thought that I would create it as the inside looking out. 


I added Acetate behind for the windows, securing in place with double sided tape. On a separate piece of cardstock, I blended inks for the sky. I used Blue Hawaii Reactive Ink, Navy Mid-Tone Shadow Ink and Intens-ified Black. I sprayed it with Iridescent White Shimmer Spray and then splattered it with white paint. I then cut the tree from the Christmas Tree Pieces Fancy Dies and blended Green Hills Mid-Tone Shadow Ink and Pine Bold Ink on top, followed by more white paint. 


I stamped the sentiment on to the front panel and then once dry, added the tree to the background and stamped the star from the set in the sky with Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. I then added the front panel on top with foam tape before adhering to an A2 white card base. I took the rocking horse image from the kit stamp set and stamped it on to white cardstock with Intens-ified Black Ink and coloured it with Copic Markers. I die cut it with the coordinating die and added it to the card with foam tape.

  2. This is such an elegant victorian Christmas card that it inspires me more now that I started making my 10 per pk cards to send to those that have supported me through my health issues. In fact, my first 10 cards are with windows and acetate, some are shakers, but some are not. I hope that I could receive my kit soon enough so I can make at least 2 pk with this beautiful theme that Hero Arts came up with as always, gorgeous. Thank you for sharing.

  10. This is such a lovely card Michelle. As someone who lives in the UK, I also appreciate the inclusion of the Merry Christmas sentiment rather than just the usual USA Happy Holidays version.
