VIDEO: Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit December 2020 Release + GIVEAWAY

Welcome everyone! It’s time for release of the December 2020 My Monthly Hero Kit! Our December release was designed to be uplifting, and bring a bit of hope that the new year will bring better days. With gorgeous layering stamps, wonderful dies, complementary inks, and a sparkly yellow embossing powder, we hope you’ll love this kit as much as we do!

This kit contains:

  • 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp set
  • Hope Word Fancy Die
  • Cloud Fancy Die
  • Cloud Window Die
  • 4 Reactive Ink Cubes (Early Dawn, Morning Mist, Yellow Chartreuse, Thistle)
  • Yellow Prisma Embossing powder 5oz.


I have a video walking you through the contents of the kit and how to use the products included. You can view the video down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

I have a ton of examples to share with you today. I explain the cards in more detail in the video so I will give a quick run down of some of the products and colors used.

My first card is using the Hope Word Die. This is great for die cut inlay techniques. I added Gold Glitter card stock to the ‘O’ to resemble the sun.

The layering stamp set in the kit is amazing and has a ton of possibilities! For the card I stamped the scene in Taffy, Morning Mist and Soft Yellow.

I masked off parts of my card to ink blend an ocean and then stamped my sun rays. I used a mix of Lemon Drop and Thistle for the sun.

Below is a clean and simple card using just the sun and sun rays from the set.

The sentiments are so amazing and great for sending encouragement cards all year long.

My next card, I stamped my cloud background onto Arctic card stock. Adds more of a dramatic feel to the background and looks amazing on colored card stock!

This time for the sun rays, I heat embossed them in Silver embossing powder.

I added the Cloud Window over the top.

You can add dimension or you can leave it one layer card like I did below.

The Cloud Window is perfect for ink blended backgrounds. This one shows a shaker card I created.

Add flicks on glimmer metallic ink for stars.

There is also a set of birds in the stamp set that you can add to you skies.

I hope these cards have inspired you! The team has really outdone themselves and got super creative with the kit this month so be sure to hop along!

I have one more card to share using the absolutely gorgeous Phoenix Bird Fancy Die. When I saw this I squealed! I love this so much! It’s such a powerful image!

I started this card so many different times and ended with a simple but very dramatic tone. I die cut the Phoenix from an ink blended panel and added to a black card base. Then I also die cut it from specialty glitter card stock. I adhered the glitter Phoenix over the negative space by off setting it slightly to give that black shadow.

Here is some more inspiration using the Add Ons from this month.
