VIDEO: Hero Arts My Monthly Hero October 2020 Card Kit

Welcome everyone ! It’s time for the release of the new My Monthly Hero Kit October 2020 from Hero Arts.

I have a handful of inspiration to share with you today featuring the new kit.


I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel showing you how I created my cards.


First let’s take a look at the new kit.

The kit contains

  • 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
  • 12 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • 1 Ornament Shape Die
  • 2 Inner Ornament Dies
  • 3 Embossing Powders (Red, Glacier Blue, White Sparkle), 1/2 oz. each
  • 1 Watermark & Embossing Ink Cube

This kit values at $76 and is available for purchase for $34.99!

For my first card, I’m using the ornament as a focal point. I heat embossed the ornament image in the White Sparkle embossing powder including in the kit and created a little scene inside.

I ink blended Tide Pool, Aquatic, Indigo and Navy ink using a blending tool for a night sky. After the background was dry, I heat embossed a sentiment in the White Sparkle and flicked on some White Glimmer Metallic ink.

This next card is similar but with a softer background. I shared this card the other but it is included in my video on how I created it.

I have snowflakes heat embossed in clear embossing powder on the background and lightly ink blended over with Soft Pool ink.

This next card is a classes Christmas Eve night with the Santa silhouette image.

I’m using the Oval Infinity dies to create a hill and added some of the White Sparkle embossing powder to the top of the hills.

The night time sky is created by masking off a moon and ink blending Cornflower and Navy inks. After I removed the mask, I ink blended Soft Vanilla and Butter Bar for the moon.

While I love creating scenes, I have inspiration for a clean and simple card as well.

I masked off a small strip on white card stock. Then ink blended Bubblegum and Rose Madder ink.

I stamped a little heart in the center with Red Royal ink and added a sentiment underneath with Intensified Ink.

These adorable deer I attached with foam squares for dimension.

Be sure to check out my VIDEO for all the details on these cards.
