December 2020 My Monthly Hero Countdown

Welcome everyone! Today kicks off the countdown to My Monthly Hero Kit for December! We have so much inspiration to share with you today and this kit leaves me feeling so hopeful for the new year.

The new kit goes LIVE on Monday, December 7, 2020 at 1pm EST. If you are not already a subscriber, I highly recommend becoming one. Once you are subscribed, you are guaranteed a kit. Hero Arts kits are packed with so much value they tend to sell out (quickly!) and you don’t want to miss out!

There are a few components in this kit that work well together or separately. I’m featuring the Hope word die.

You can die cut this from glitter card stock like I did or do a die cut in-lay technique with lots of colors!

I added a few clouds around my word symbolizing Hope is on the horizon.

This was all added to a card front I created using Lapis card stock and ink blended with Cornflower and Navy Ink using a blending too.

WIN A KIT BEFORE YOU CAN BUY IT: Just leave a comment on the Hero Arts blog (and every) Countdown to Creativity post. We’ll randomly draw one lucky winner from comments left across all countdown posts on the Hero Arts blog. The winner will be announced first thing Monday morning, December 7, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win. Good luck!
