My Monthly Hero December 2022 : Magical Backgrounds

Hello crafty friends! It’s time for an adventure with the new My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts for December 2022.

I”m going to be creating some magical backgrounds to build my scenes using Lindy’s Magical Powders.


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

First, let’s take a look at the kit.

In the kit you will receive:

  • 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set
  • 15 Coordinating Frame Cuts
  • Cling Background Stamp
  • 4 Sheets of Pitch Black Cardstock 5.5″ x 8.5″
  • Rose Gold Pigment Ink Pad

The kit values at $82!

Since the kit has kind of a space theme, I wanted to make some colorful backgrounds.

I go over everything in the VIDEO so down below I will go over the main supplies used.





I have one more card that I want to share with you that is NOT in my video. This card features the Nebula and Star Cluster stencil which are my new favorites!

I did some rainbow ink blending using my Reactive inks and then added the Nebula stencil over the top with white pigment ink.

The star cluster stencil I added with Sparkle Paste. I framed the scene with the Space Window cut from Pitch Black cardtsock and a sentiment from the Orbit stamp set.


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


The party starts over on the Hero Arts blog!

You should have arrived from Michelle Short’s Blog.

Your next stop is Seeka.
