December My Monthly Hero is Here! + Giveaway!

Nov 29, 2017 Hero Arts

It is time again to bring you the launch of this month's December My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons! Our Creative Team has been busy using these products this month and we think you will enjoy them as much as they have. And at the end of the post you will find links to a blog hop that will provide plenty of inspiration using this month's kit and add-ons.

A magical journey awaits you with the December 2017 My Monthly Hero kit. The stamp set is filled with a variety of images, coordinating Frame Cuts, a Fancy Die and sentiments that make it easy to create beautiful scenes. Whether you like to color or just stamp there are images for you. And to make it even easier we have included 5 ink cubes that are exclusively available in this kit – rich jewel tones that are perfect for these images. The stencil can be used to make a beautiful background. And glitter stickers will add just the right amount of shine to your projects.

 

 This month's kit contents include:

6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
12 Coordinating Frame Cuts Dies
1 Fancy Window Die
5 ink cubes (Exclusive colors only available in this kit - Sapphire, Teal Topaz, Pink Tourmaline, Ruby, Tiger's Eye)
5.25" x 6.5" Stencil
Assortment of glitter stickers 

 

This kit is an incredible deal with so many goodies that the value is nearly $80 but the cost to you is $34.99!

 

We also have some terrific, optional add-on products this month - 3 stamp sets, coordinating dies, 4 Fancy Dies, 3 background stamps, 1 woodblock stamp, 4 new inks and a modeling paste. That's a lot of fun new products! You can buy them individually but if you buy them all here? You save almost 11%!

 

Let's get started with the Make a Wish clear stamp set and the coordinating Make a Wish Frame Cuts. These genie images would be so fun to color and the Frame Cuts make them easy to use. 

 

 

This next stamp set, Magical Nights Messages, is the perfect complement to the kit and the Make A Wish set. It gives you lots of messages to use on your cards. It also has some fun silhouette images.

 

Next up is the Ornate Henna Patterns stamp set. This set will make beautiful cards or you can stamp them on skin using our 4 new Henna inks, Onyx, Lapis, Scarab and Amber. They are skin safe inks that can be used for a fun, temporary look!

 

 

Our new woodblock stamp, Henna Flower Pattern, is also a great stamp to use with the new Henna inks. A great size to use on your card or on the back of your hand (or wherever you choose to stamp it!)

We also have three new background stamps starting with the Filigree Pattern Bold Prints stamp. Stamp it, heat emboss it. No matter how you use it you will get a beautiful, dramatic look. You can see this stamp in action on a card that Amy made here

 

The Floral Tile Bold Prints stamp is one that you will find yourself reaching for often. Such a pretty image that can be used many ways. Color in the star images for an extra special look.

Mandalas are very popular right now - from fashion to home decor to crafting. This large Mandala Bold Prints stamp will quickly become one of your favorite stamps.

Moving on to Fancy Dies, we have four this month! First up is the Gems Confetti Fancy Die  that you can use to create a striking background.

The City Skyline Fancy Die makes it easy to create a unique backdrop on your card. Ilina used it here and the black against the purple background is really stunning. 

The detail in the Filigree Border Fancy Die is gorgeous, isn't it? Use it to cut once or twice to frame the edges of a card. 

Our last die is the Old World Courtyard Fancy Die. We think it makes such an inviting entrance that we wish we could walk right through it!

Our final add-on for the month is an 8 ounce jar of The Crafter's Workshop Modeling Paste. If you have never used a modeling paste before you will find that it is an easy way to add dimension to your projects. You can use it many ways, including spreading it over a stencil, adding color to it and simply creating a texture on your card.

 

Our Creative Team member, Jayne, is stopping by to give us some inspiration.

Jayne: This month's kit has so many wonderful, exotic images, it has me dreaming about a vacation in paradise! To make my card,  I started by applying a thin layer of modeling paste across the kit's gorgeous stencil onto a piece of white cardstock. Before the paste dried, I covered the stenciled pattern with some glitter from my stash, tapping off the excess.

While this background dried, I stamped and die cut five palm trees with Caramel, Emerald Green, Navy and Rose Madder inks. I also embossed one of the kit's fun sentiments onto a strip of navy cardstock.

Next, I cut an oval from the center of the stenciled background with one of the Nesting Oval Infinity Dies. I secured both background pieces to a navy card base, adding dimension behind the oval with foam tape. I scattered the five, colorful palm trees across the raised oval and then added the sentiment to the center with foam tape. To finish, I added a few gems for even more sparkle.

Thank you so much Jayne for sharing your beautiful and colorful card.

I love this kit. My mind was spinning with ideas for its use the minute I saw it. I hope to see many more unusual and even fantasy-like kits in the future.

This kit totally missed the mark with me. I am so glad to see others liked it. Even after watching many videos on ideas, it just is a dud for me. Love the last couple of years of kits, but this one… doesn’t speak to me for some reason. Hopefully it will someday.

Usually I have a hard time picking my favorite product from a kit or release, but this time, I’m all in on the floral tile bold print stencil/background stamp. I love tessellations, and these remind me so much of pictures I’ve seen of the Alhambra. Were they based on that? Whatever the case, that pattern is perfect, and I could easily create with just that for hours. Thanks for designing and sharing such a beautiful kit!
