Hero Arts | December 2023 My Monthly Hero Countdown to Creativity

Hello there and welcome as we countdown to the release of the Hero Arts December 2023 My Monthly Hero Kits and add-on products. They release tomorrow, Monday 4th December 2023, and we have been sharing inspiration all weekend long using the new kits. 

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

My project today uses the Hero Arts December 2023 My Monthly Hero Classic Kit. I started off by die cutting the Alphabet Cover Plate Die from the kit from Hero Arts Deluxe Smooth White Cardstock multiple times so that I had 3 layers for each letter spelling out 'whale done'. 

On one set of letters, I added ink blending using Hero Arts Summer Sky, Indigo and Grape Juice Core Inks. I then splattered Hero Arts Gold Glimmer Metallic Ink on top (this is included in the Premium Kit but can be purchased separately too). Once dry, I adhered the letters together using Hero Arts Precision Glue

I took a 4.25" x 5.5" panel of white cardstock and stamped the bubbles image from the XL Alphabet Clear Stamp Set in the kit on top using Hero Arts Intens-ified Black Ink. I also stamped the whale from the set twice. Once as intended and once in reverse (using a grip mat). They were coloured using Copic Markers and fussy cut out with scissors. 

I adhered the panel to a US A2 sized white card base with tape runner adhesive. I then adhered the letters on top using Hero Arts Precision Glue. The whales were adhered using foam tape.

  1. Awesome card! I've been looking for retirement card ideas, and I immediately thought a "fare whale" version of your card would be great.

  2. Love the sentiment you created! Perfect!!

  3. Such a cute and fun card. I like the "Whale Done" quote.

  4. Love those letters and the way you colored them!

  5. Funny! Love the blend on the letters.

  6. love these colours - your card is really clever! Can't wait to see the whole kit

  7. Whale.... this is adorable! I love what you've done with this - it's hard to leave so much white in the background but it really makes everything else POP with your card!

  8. I can't imagine how long it took to place those letters just right and stamp the bubbles too. I'd have needed to do a draft! Beautifully made, especially with the little gold splatters!
