Make Yourself At Home Card Kit January 2023 Inspiration

Hello crafty friends! Today I’m sharing inspiration using the January 2023 Make Yourself At Home Card Kit by Hero Arts exclusively sold at Joann stores! These are available both online and select Joann stores.


I have a video sharing three cards I created with this kit that you can view down below or HERE on my Youtube channel.

Let’s take a look at the kit.

These kits are packed with products! Included in the kit is:

  • Peonies Bunch 4×6 Clear Stamp Set
  • Peonies Bunch Frame Cuts
  • XOXO Cover Plate Die
  • Taffy Reactive Ink Cube
  • Fruit Punch Reactive Ink Cube
  • Green Apple Reactive Ink Cube
  • White Hero Pearls, 0.6 oz.

  • 2 Sheets of Azalea Cardstock, 5.5″ x 8.5″
  • 2 Sheets of Cherry Cardstock, 5.5″ x 8.5″
  • 2 Sheets of Watercolor Cardstock, 5.5″ x 8.5″

That is a $70 value for only $34.99!

All the details about the cards are in the video so down below I will briefly go over supplies used.


I used the cover plate die in the kit to create a shaker card. All you need is a piece of acetate and sequins mix.

I only used one layer of foam tape to create my shaker well so there isn’t a lot of shake but this also makes the sequins a little more visible all over the front of the card.

My sentiment comes from the Peonies Bunch stamp set included in the kit. I inked it up in embossing ink and stamped it onto Azalea cardstock. Then used some Gold embossing powder and heat set it.

My next card shows how to use the image from the Peonies bunch without having to color it. I like including option in my inspirational cards.

The image is stamped onto the Azalea cardstock using Dove White ink from my collection. I also stamped the image in Intens-ified Black ink and used the coordinating die to cut it out and add to the front of the card.

When you have such a gorgeous color of cardstock, you don’t need much else except a sentiment. Dress it up with the White Hero Pearls also included in the kit.

My final card is using the Reactive ink cubes.

I ink smooshed a background onto the included watercolor cardstock.

I used the cubes to loosely water color the image that I heat embossed in clear embossing powder.

Whenever I feel I need to reign in a background so it doesn’t overpower the image, I use my Rectangle Infinity dies to create a thick frame.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration using the January 2023 Make Yourself At Home card kit.
