Hero Arts | September 2023 My Monthly Hero Countdown to Creativity

Hello there and welcome as we countdown to the release of the Hero Arts September 2023 My Monthly Hero Kit (and add-on products). We are here all weekend sharing inspiration using both the Classic and Premium Kits before the release on Tuesday, 5th September. This month is all about fall forest. 

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

My card today uses the September 2023 My Monthly Hero Premium Kit. The images on my card are part of the premium kit elements only and the sentiment is from the classic (also in the premium). 

I started off by stamping the images from the Dancing Foxy Animals stamp set onto white cardstock using Intens-ified Black Ink. I coloured them with Copic Markers before die cutting out with the coordinating dies. I wasn't a 100% sure what the animal was, but I coloured him as if he is a bear!

I then took the sentiment from the message stamp set in the kit (both classic and premium) and stamped it onto Pitch Black Cardstock using Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut into a strip. 

I took a panel of Sand Cardstock and adhered it to the front of a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape. I then adhered the bear, pumpkins, leaves and sentiment on top using thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few white gel pen dots
