October 2021 My Monthly Hero Release + Giveaway!

Oct 01, 2021 Hero Arts

Look through the window onto a joyous holiday scene with the October My Monthly Hero Kit. The candles are lit, the classic toys are under the tree and the champagne is flowing. This month's kit includes Victorian Christmas-inspired imagery in a large 6x8 stamp set, and a gorgeous window die that sets the stage for the scenes you will create. Rounding out the kit are acetate sheets to mimic window glass, lovely jewel tone cardstock and glitter to add a bit of sparkle.

This month’s kit includes:

• 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
• 12 Coordinating Frame Cuts
• Window Shop Cover Plate Die
• 6 4.25" x 5.5" Sheets of Biodegradable Acetate
• 7 5.5" x 8.5" Sheets of Cardstock in Assorted Holiday Jewel Tones
• Prisma Glitter, 0.5 oz.

Watch the video below for an overview of the kit as well as wonderful inspiration from our Creative Team. You can also watch on YouTube.

This kit is valued at $72, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities – grab yours before they are gone!

This month marks the 6th anniversary of our My Monthly Hero kits! We are so thankful for all of the excitement you've felt every month over the past six years, and the support you continue to show. Be sure to check out this post to read about voting for your favorite past kit.

And we have a special surprise for you this month! Starting with the October 2021 kit, all My Monthly Hero Kits will arrive packaged in a handy reusable zipper pouch. It's a great way to store your kit contents together, and it also contributes to our sustainability goal of reducing single-use plastic.

We're also introducing additional products with this release, most with the "Victorian Christmas" theme, and even a hint of steampunk! But first, we're thrilled to share a set that many of you have been asking for - to celebrate a few of the Jewish holidays. We've called it Mazel Tov.

Now on to the Victorian inspiration - and in this case, in critter form! Victorian Ice Skaters and coordinating Victorian Ice Skaters Frame Cuts are so sweet for building little wintery scenes!

Next we have Christmas Carolers and Christmas Carolers Frame Cuts, with useful messages and sweet images.

Steampunk Holiday and Steampunk Holiday Frame Cuts is so much fun for all of you "alternate history" fans!

Gear Clock Bold Prints coordinates nicely with Steampunk Holiday, or is great all on its own.

Next we have Winter Express Bold Prints, a fun image that can be great for the holidays, could be a nod to Harry Potter, or is just generally fun for steam engine fans!

Victorian Christmas Messages is a 3" x 4" stamp set with useful greetings in a classic font, which pairs nicely with many items in this release.

Gift Shop Background Cling is an A2-sized cling stamp that is fabulous all on its own, but also pairs nicely with our Peek-A-Boo Doors Fancy Die!

Hero Greetings Christmas Gift Shop is the perfect set to pair with Gift Shop Background Cling. Those cute little elves peeking from the windows are so much fun, and the longer messages fit nicely in the sign at the top of the shop image.

Next let's take a look at the new dies this month. Build a beautiful traditional tree with Christmas Tree Pieces Fancy Dies.

Vintage Toys Fancy Dies are classic Christmas toys. 

Hero Lifestyle Victorian Lady and Victorian Gentleman are the latest additions to our line of Hero Lifestyle paper dolls. Dress them up and add them to your holiday scenes.

Our Victorian Stencil sets the stage for many of the projects you might do with this release. It's equally fun with inks and our new Hero Paste!

It's been a while since we've introduced a new Technique Kit, but this month we have one that pairs wonderfully with this release, especially the steampunk products. It's called Patina Technique Kit, and pairs a pigment ink with brass embossing powder for a faux aged-metal look.

And rounding out the release is our 5-pack of Zipper Pouches. You may want to store past kits from your stash in these handy bags to match your new storage starting with this month's kit. They are also handy for crafting on the go!

I really like this month’s set especially the candles on the Christmas tree and the vintage toys.
One thing I find missing is a bottle of champagne to go with the champagne glass tower.
I’d also like to know that none of the additional sets nor the Christmas set have any happy New Year. Separating the happy holidays and adding a new year stamp with the same font would have also been nice.
I always love to see pieces of furniture in the sets because I like to build scenes with a lot of my cards.
Thank you for another lovely addition to my stamp collection.

The nostalgia is so sweet. My grandmom used to have a decoration of mice caroling that was always the highlight f out visit when she’d play it. I had forgotten about it until I saw this add on. Thanks for the hug from grandmom. I’ll bet this kit is stirring up a wonderful bunch of memories for many.
