Awesome Add-ons: December Edition

Dec 14, 2016 Hero Arts Info


Hi stampers! We’re back with our Awesome Add-ons feature for this month. Here’s a peek at all nine of the add-on products that were introduced along with the December kit last week — one 4×6″ clear set with optional coordinating dies, one full card-sized Fancy Die, two Stamp & Cut sets, three stencils, and finally one stand-alone die set. Lots of fun options this month, whether you pair these goodies with the kit or use them separately!

Our Creative Team is going to share some fabulous “beyond the kit” ideas for a few of these add-ons. Jayne is up first to get the party started!

I created a birthday card using a few, fun stamps from the new Birthday Celebration stamp set, the new Birthday Celebration Frame Cuts, and the new Party Confetti Fancy Die. This full, card-sized die is perfect for creating instant party backgrounds! I used the die to cut a white confetti panel that I secured over a yellow card base.

Next, I stamped and die cut a collection of round balloons with Butter Bar, Tide Pool, and Green Hills inks. I also stamped and cut strings to hang below the balloons. For extra interest, I cut a few vellum balloons that I layered into the balloon cluster. I embossed one of the sentiments onto a strip of black cardstock and secured it to the balloons. I stamped and cut one final image, a fun “PARTY” glass, that I added below the sentiment and then I finished the card with a trio of black gems.

Next up is Amy with a fabulous, clean and simple design…

Hi all, it’s Amy here with a project I designed using the Cocktail Party Stamp & Cut add-on set.


I stamped the glasses and the orange slices on a watercolor paper panel in Wet Cement Mid-Tone Shadow Ink and colored them with Zig Clean Color Markers. I fussy cut the oranges and placed them so that it appears they are on the rim of the glass. The base is a panel from the Midnight Mixed Layering Paper with a Snow Layering Panel and then finally the watercolor panel with the stamped images. I finished off the design with the sentiment that has been stamped in Blackboard Mid-Tone Shadow Ink.


This would be a fun congratulations card or perhaps even a party invite!

We hope you enjoyed today’s projects. Cheers and happy stamping!
