Hey friends! Today, I am sharing the new December 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit from Hero Arts! These kits are my absolute favorite because they are so chock full of amazing products each month. This month does not disappoint.
The December 2021 kit contains a City Cling stamp, an 4×6 set of coordinating clear stamps and dies, a fancy cover plate die (I love this), 4 pieces of black cardstock, 3 reactive ink cubes in Berry Smoothie, Fruit Punch and Lemon Drop and 10 clothes pins.
To make my card, I used the cling stamp and fancy die from this month’s kit. I wanted to capitalize on the man on the balcony looking out over the cityscape so I added a sun ray background using the Sun stencil also from Hero Arts. I inked it up with the Lemon Drop ink that is also included in the kit. I felt like he was having a moment before starting his day where he was reminiscing about a time gone by.
I decided to color in the city scene in vertical blocks of blues using alcohol markers. Once I finished I fussy cut the scene out so I could pop it up to stand away from the sun rays on the back panel. I glued all the parts and pieces together and then attached them to a top-folding card base. The card came together quickly and beautifully.
My creative juices were flowing so I made a BONUS card! I used the cling background stamp again but this time, I highlighted one of the houses in the scene. The 4×6 stamp set had a sentiment that is perfect for someone moving to a new home so I highlighted one of the house in the scene as if it were the home of the person who would receive the card. I colored the house and the surrounding trees with alcohol markers and cut a frame using the Nesting Rectangle dies to make it stand out more. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and the keys to finish off the card.
This month’s MMH kit is timeless and will likely be one you reach for again and again. Check out the list of blog hop participants below to get more inspiration!
