Hero Arts | My Monthly Hero October 2022 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there and welcome to the Hero Arts October 2022 My Monthly Hero Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. Both the kit and add-ons are now available in store to purchase. The release this month is all about North Pole scene building. Perfect for winter, Christmas and holiday projects. I have two cards to share with you today - one using the main kit and the other with three of the add-on products. 

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

I already shared one card using the main kit, which you can see here. For my card today, I wanted to share another way of using the kit clear stamp set but on a smaller scale. 

I started off by stamping one of the silhouette images from the Hero Arts October 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit clear stamp set on to white cardstock using Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. I then die cut it out using a Hero Arts Nesting Hearts Infinity Die. I also die cut a Nesting Circle Infinity Die from masking paper. 

The masking paper circle was adhered in the sky and then I coloured the heart using Copic Markers. I used the circle mask as a guide for the moon. The mask was removed and then I added a very pale purple around the inside edges. The heart panel was adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with foam tape. 

I took the sentiment from the Hero Arts Holiday Sentiment Strips Stamp Set and stamped it on to Hero Arts Pitch Black Cardstock with Hero Arts Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip using the Hero Arts Sentiment Strips Fancy Die and adhered to the card with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added white gel pen sparkles and dots to the image. 

My second card uses a few of the new add-on sets, including two that I used on the card above! (Love them!) I started off by die cutting the Hero Arts Sentiment Strips Fancy Die from five colours of Hero Arts Cardstock - Peony, Azalea, Mist, Paradise and Adriatic. They were adhered to a panel of cardstock at a slight angle, using Precision Glue

I took the Hero Arts Santa's Sleigh Fancy Die and die cut it from white cardstock three times. They were adhered one on top of another for added dimension. I also cut it from white glitter paper. I cut the trim off the top and placed it on the white sleigh. The holly leaves and berries from the set were die using Paradise and Peony cardstock. 

The sleigh was adhered to the panel using Precision Glue and then the panel adhered to a US A2 sized white card base using thin foam tape. The holly was added on top. The sentiment from the Hero Arts Holiday Sentiment Strips Stamp Set was heat embossed in white on to black cardstock and die cut using the Hero Arts Sentiment Strips Fancy Die. It was adhered to the card with thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few iridescent jewels.
