Hello and welcome to our December Awesome Add-ons feature! As you may know, along with each My Monthly Hero kit release, we introduce a handful of new add-on products that can be used with the kit or stand on their own. Here's a glance at all of the fabulous offerings this month!

Today we're delighted to have Debi Adams here to share some fabulous “beyond the kit” ideas for a few of the add-ons.

Happy Wednesday friends! So thrilled to be here today sharing some new designs by Hero Arts for what I hope brings you a bright and new beginning to the new year. Both of the cards featured today are colorful and uplifting, something I think we can all use a lot more of these days. Each one has its own style, technique and unique appeal so that everyone has a place to create. And better yet, they are EASY!

"You’re My Sunshine" is a stenciled card that is a one and done! (Well actually it is a two step but you get the message.) I laid down the Flourish Sun Stencil and simply used a blending brush to embellish it with Lemon Drop, Creamsicle, Taffy, Pool Party and Green Apple Reactive Inks. I stamped the sentiment into the middle and it was finished. Doesn’t get easier than that and so fun! Think of all the color combos that could work here! I have to admit I played with this stencil way longer than this one card because there are a lot of ways to work it.

"Just Because" uses the Tree with Roots Fancy Die, cut from Dove White cardstock, and colored in with various Copic markers. I felt like a kid again. Remember those big box of crayons and you would draw rainbows for hours? Yep, that! And can I just say how much I LOVE this tree! Those Hero Art artists are just amazing! The tree was set on top of some scraps of rainbow-colored cardstock and a sentiment "just because" was stamped in Intense Black ink onto the top-folded Dove White card base. Ok, so like, who wouldn’t like to get a "happy-I’m-thinking-about-you-just-because" card? I want to challenge you to make someone’s day, one card at a time.

And that’s it from me today. Short on words but long on creating because it’s such a great place to be. Be well my friends.

Love the cards you made with the add-ons, Debi. The Tree with Roots card is my favorite. I’d love to see a video about how you colored that tree. I know you used Copics but, when I look at the tree, it almost looks like you used water colors and I’m just not sure how to achieve that beautiful look.
