January My Monthly Hero is Here! + Giveaway!

by Hero Arts January 08, 2018 168 Comments

Happy New Year! We are excited to start off 2018 with the launch of our January My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons! Our Creative Team has enjoyed making projects with these products this month and we think you will too! At the end of this post you will find links to a blog hop that will provide plenty of inspiration using this month's kit and add-ons.

Love comes in many flavors - romantic, BFF, and unconditional to name just a few. Join us in celebrating all of these with our January "Layered Love" My Monthly Hero kit. Featuring a 4" x 6" Color Layering clear set, intricate dies, 4 ink cubes and 5 sheets of cardstock (decorative and solid), all in gorgeous red and pink tones. To add to the fun, you'll also receive a specialty sequin mix and some sparkly embossing powder. We're hoping you'll "love" this as much as we do.

This month's kit contents include:

4" x 6" Layered on Love Clear Stamp Set
4 Coordinating Dies
4 ink cubes (Passion Flower, Navy, Red Royal and Mulled Wine)
2 5"x7" Shizen decorative paper
1 5.5"x8.5" Stardream Coral Cardstock 
1 5.5"x8.5" Stardream Rose Quartz Cardstock
1 5.5"x8.5" Stardream Kunzite Cardstock 
Heart Sequins Mix 1.5 oz
Pink Prisma Embossing Powder 0.5 oz 

This kit is an incredible deal with so many goodies in it that it is valued at nearly $62 but the cost to you is $34.99.

We also have some terrific, optional add-on products this month - 3 clear stamp sets with coordinating Frame Cuts, 4 woodblock stamps, one Paper Layering die, one Fancy Die. You will also find a DIY calendar kit and Original and Mini MISTI stamping tools in the Hero Arts store today!

First we have the Love Bandit clear stamp set and Love Bandit Frame Cuts. Who can resist these adorable raccoons! They are so cute and will make anyone who receives your card smile.

Next up is the Stealing My Heart clear stamp set and Stealing My Heart Frame Cuts. Has someone stolen your heart? If so, this is the perfect set to tell them how much you love them.

 

 

Color Layering stamps are so popular because of the beautiful dimension you can get by simply layering the images with different ink colors. This month we are offering the Color Layering Rose clear stamp set and the Color Layering Rose Frame Cuts. Ilina used this set with a combination of ink and embossing powder here. Yana will be sharing a video with several lovely ideas for this set on Wednesday too!

 

The Love Birds Stamp & Cut set offers stamps and coordinating dies that make it easy to create projects. Who are the love birds in your life who would love to receive a card using this pretty set? Check out the card that Jess made with these sweet birds here.

We have beautiful, intricate dies available this month as well. Let's start with the Window on Love Confetti Fancy Die. You can use the die just as it is and fill the front of your card with lovely pattern. And you can hold on to the hearts that this die creates and use them on other projects!

 

If you enjoy the dimension of our Paper Layering dies you will love the Paper Layering Floral Heart with Frame die. If you look closely you will see butterflies, flowers and leaves comprising this heart shape.

 

Let's move on to the woodblock stamps. First up is the Bouquet woodblock stamp. There is lovely detail in the stamp that makes it perfect for coloring with any medium you choose. 

The Rose Heart woodblock stamp is another beautiful stamp that would create an elegant focal point on your card. 

Next up is the Happily Ever After sentiment stamp that would complement the other woodblock stamps or any other images in the kit or add-ons.

 

Use the You Are So Lovely stamp to tell someone how you feel about them and make their day!

If you are interested in purchasing all of the add-on products this month at a discounted price you can find the bundle here in the Hero Arts store.

Be sure to check out the DIY Calendar kit that is also available in the Hero Arts store. This kit gives you everything you need to make your own calendar!

Beginning this month we will also be selling the Original MISTI stamping tool and the Mini MISTI stamping tool. These tools will change the way you stamp, making mass production and precise stamp placement easier than ever!

Our Creative team member, Ilina, created a gorgeous card using this month's kit:

I love creating for Valentine day, but as well using Valentine's goodies for other occasions. February is our anniversary month too (we'll be celebrating 13 years this year), so I always double use the Valentine's goodies. I hope you find this kit fun, as much as I did. 

For my card today I used the heart die from the main kit and die cut it from Snow Layering paper. I applied Versamark ink directly to the die cut and embossed with Gold Embossing powder. I repeated this process several times until I got more of a dimensional die cut. Next using the MISTI, I stamped the ampersand in Versamark on vellum and embossed Rose Gold embossing powder (from the Ink and Emboss Partridge)

Put the vellum back in the MISTI and stamped and embossed again. Next I stamped the second layer and embossed with Gold Embossing powder (repeated this process twice as well). After it cooled down, I fussy cut it. 

On a square piece of Snow Layering paper (about 4" x 4" ) I stamped "love" and "friendship" and embossed with Gold Embossing powder. Then adhered the heart and the ampersand. I took little larger piece of Snow Layering paper ( 4 1/8" x 4 1/8") and inked the edges with Versamark and embossed with Gold Embossing powder to create custom "foil" paper to match all the embossing on my panel. Adhered the main panel to it.

I created a note card using 4 1/2" x 9" piece of Snow Layering paper and scored at 4 1/2" then folded. I adhered piece of Lovely Layering Papers on the front, then adhered my panel.   

Thank you so much Ilina!

When I heat the pink glitter embossing powder that came with the January 2018 kit the embossed powder looks pitted and not smooth. I take care not to over heat the powder, as soon as it starts to shine all over I stop.

Seriously though, this kit is stellar and I can’t wait for mine to get here!
