by Hero Arts October 02, 2017 205 Comments

We are so excited to welcome you to the North Pole with our October My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons! Our Creative Team has gotten into the holiday spirit using the products this month and we hope you are ready to play 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.

This month's October My Monthly Hero kit will take you on a trip to a magical place.  Destination? The North Pole with Santa, elves, villages, and much more… Everything you need to create any number of festive wintry scenes. The kit contains a chock-full 6x8" clear stamp set, offering an endless number of combinations. Coordinating Frame Cuts and Fancy Dies are also included, as is a sampling of decorative paper to add texture and shine to your projects. And finally, thick clear lacquer, pearl embossing powder and a white ink cube help you to add the final details to your card. 

The kit contents include:

• 6x8" Clear StampSet
• 10 Coordinating Frame Cuts
• 3 Fancy Dies
• 6 sheets 5x7" decorative paper (3 assorted styles 2 of each)
• 1 Thick Lacquer Pen
• 1 Silver Embossing Powder 0.5 oz 
• 1 Unicorn White Ink Cube

This kit is an incredible deal with so many goodies in it that the value is $70 but the cost to you is $34.99.

We also have some terrific, optional add-on products this month - 4 stamp sets, 3 coordinating Frame Cuts, 1 Paper Layering die, 1 wood mounted stamp, and 3 Stamp & Cut sets!

First we have the Nice Elves stamp set and coordinating Nice Elves Frame Cuts. These images are so cute and will bring a smile to anyone's face.

If you have nice elves you need naughty ones don't you think? So we have a Naughty Elves stamp set and coordinating Naughty Elves Frame Cuts. They can't be nice all of the time!

 

 We also have the Irreverent Elf Messages stamp set

Next up is a Paper Layering Wood Door die. Isn't this adorable? We think that it would be great for fairy doors as well!

If you have a beautiful wood door you need to decorate it. And we have just the right accessories for it with the Santa's Door Accessories stamp set and coordinating Santa's Door Accessories Frame Cuts

 

We have several Stamp & Cut sets this month starting with the Winter Hearth Stamp & Cut set. Create a cozy scene - one that you wish you could enjoy yourself!

The next set is the North Pole Sign Stamp & Cut

Doggy, kitty and stockings? Yes please! Our next add-on is the Fluffy Stockings Stamp & Cut set that will make the perfect card for a special animal lover in your life.

 

Last but not least is the Three Happy Elves wood mounted stamp. They look like they are enjoying a fun Christmas celebration.

If you purchase all of the add-ons in a bundle? You save 9%!

We are happy to have Jayne join us with a beautiful card that she created this month.

Jayne: There are so many wonderful images in this month's stamp set, I decided to use as many as I could to create a fun background for a pair of holiday sentiments. I started by using seven of the kit's image dies to create masks that I placed on a white cardstock panel. One at a time, I used a foam blender with Pale Tomato, Cotton Candy, Fresh Lawn, and Green Hills inks to apply color to the masked areas. Then, I stamped the matching images with Black ink over the inked shapes. 

Next, I covered each image with masking paper and applied a subtle layer of Mint Julep ink to the top of the panel and around the images, gradually blending to white. To complete the background, I stamped an assorted selection of the kit's other stamps across the panel, filling each space with images that fit nicely.

My Monthly Hero October 2017 by Jayne Nelson for Hero Arts

I embossed two sentiments onto strips of red and green cardstock that I secured to a vellum cloud and then centered them on the card with foam tape. I matted the panel with white cardstock and added it to a pool card base. For some holiday sparkle, I finished the card with a few, clear gems.

Thank you Jayne! So creative!
