Hero Arts | My Monthly Hero December 2023 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there and welcome as we celebrate the release of the Hero Arts December 2023 My Monthly Hero Kits and add-on products. The release this month is all about letters and numbers! Perfect for cards, tags, stationery and scrapbooking!

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

My first projects today use the Hero Arts December 2023 My Monthly Hero Classic Kit. I took the Alphabet Cover Plate Die from the kit and die cut it multiple times from white cardstock and also Peony, Ultra Pink, Cherry, Cranberry, Paradise and Bermuda Cardstock. 

I wanted one layer of white cardstock as a base for the colours of cardstock on top (for added dimension). I then cut two tags, using the Tag Infinity Dies, from white cardstock and the topper piece from Pitch Black Cardstock

I adhered the white cardstock letters first spelling 'Fa La La' on one tag and Ho Ho Ho' on the other. The letters were adhered with Precision Glue. I then adhered the colourful ones on top. To finish off, I added the topper piece with Precision Glue, threaded twine though and tied in a bow.

In case you missed it, for my countdown project, I also used the Hero Arts December 2023 My Monthly Hero Classic Kit. This time using both the Alphabet Cover Plate Die and the XL Alphabet Clear Stamp Set (for the whale). You can see how I made the card HERE

My second project for today is a hexagon shaped card using some of the add-on products for this month. I started off by embossing a panel of Passion Flower Cardstock using the Alphabet Embossing Plate. Using blending brushes, I blended Passion Flower, Orchid, Amethyst and Grape Juice Core Inks on top. It was then die-cut using a Hexagon Infinity Die.

I took the diamond shape stamp from the Geometric Frames set and stamped it onto vellum using Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut out using the coordinating die. I stamped the 'hello' from the Message Basics Stamp Set onto Pitch Black Cardstock and heat embossed that also. It was cut into a strip. 

I die-cut the 'U' from the Letter S-V Fancy Dies set three times from white cardstock. They were adhered one on top of another using Precision Glue. I then adhered it to the vellum piece, followed by the hello sentiment on top, adhered with foam tape. The piece was then adhered to the hexagon panel using more Precision Glue. The panel was then adhered to a hexagon shaped card base.
