VIDEO: Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit November 2020

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


I have a video for you today sharing exactly how this kit works and why it’s so unique! I will also be creating 3 cards in today’s video. You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

This kit contains:

  • 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp set
  • 5 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • 6 Coordinating Masking Cuts
  • Winter Sky Reactive Ombré Ink Pad
  • Red Vine Washi Tape
  • Winter Forest Sequins

Easily layer your stamped images with the masking dies included in this month’s kit. These dies cut right to the edge of the stamped image, leaving no white space. To stamp a background behind the house, bird, owl, tree or snowman, simply stamp that foreground image, die cut a mask, cover the foreground image with the mask and stamp your background on top of it. 

I’m using Gina K Designs Masking Magic to mask my images. I found this to be the perfect thickness to create a perfectly masked area.

TIP: Die cut your masking dies out of the Masking Magic first.

I am sharing lots of tips in my VIDEO so be sure to check that out!

The background is stamped in Ombre Dolphin ink for a fun wintery scene.

I love the etched designs of the images in the new kit. You can stamp the images in any color of ink, stamp in black and color with any medium, or just leave them stamped in black to really pop from your backgrounds.

This background is stamped in Ombre Mint Julep to Emerald Green ink.

This next card I shared during my countdown post. You can read more about it HERE but I also included it in my video.

I’m sharing tips in my video how to use the masking dies to die cut your images and add to your card for dimension.


We will give away one $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, November 8th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.


If you came from Michelle’s blog you are in the right spot.
