Welcome everyone! It’s time for the December 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts. We are celebrating this amazing release with a blog hop filled with inspiration and prizes so I hope you’ll join us!


I have a video that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel walking you through the contents of the kit and sharing 2 cards I create with it.

Now let’s take a quick look at the kit!

In this kit you will receive:

  • 10 Clothespins

This kit values at $70 but it’s available for only $34.99! The Hero Arts kits are one of the top valued kits on the market and worth every penny!

Now onto some inspiration!

I provide full instructions in my video so below I will list the main supplies used. Please refer to the video HERE for more details.


This is another version of a card I shared for the Countdown. I always gets questions about my countdown card so I’m including it in my video and added a moon.


Here are some more cards that are NOT included in the video but I wanted to share with you using some of the Add Ons this month that coordinate so well with the kit.

This card is using the City Window Fancy Die. I really do love window scenes.

On a piece of white cardstock I ink blended Fruit Punch and Lemon Drop to create a sun. Then I die cut the City Window from white cardstock. Before adding the window over the top, I stamped a sentiment from the Wherever You Go stamp set.

Then I could add my window over my blended background using foam tape to add dimension. I also added a tree and lamp post from the City Park Heroscape.

One last card I want to share is the Wherever You Go stamp set.

I have to admit I have loving these building stamp sets. Who knew?!

I stamped the buildings on white cardstock with embossing ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.

Next I ink blended on a rainbow of colors including Taffy, Lemon Drop, Splash and Thistle Reactive Inks.

I also added a hill from the City Park Heroscape stamped in Lime Green and then ink blended on Fresh Lawn at the bottom with a blending brush. This is a cool trick! Stamp in one color and lightly ink blend over the top with a darker color.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! I have more to share soon!


We are giving away a $50 gift card to Hero Arts drawn fro the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, December 12th at 11:59 pm Pacific and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
