My Monthly Hero Blog Hop • September


Happy Monday everyone!

Today is the release day for the My Monthly Hero kit of September! This new wonderful kit will be available TODAY September 6 at 1pm (Eastern time) at the Hero Arts store. Be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone.

This month’s kit includes many beautiful products for the coming  Holidays season. Additionally, the stamps in this month’s kit feature talented Creative Team member Clare Prezzia‘s hand lettering 🙂 🙂 🙂

The main contains: A set of three Fancy Dies designed for building your own wreath,  4×6 clear stamp set, ten coordinating Frame Cuts dies, three ink cubes in Mustard, Rust and Deep Burgundy, six half sheets of cardstock (Kraft, Sunset Orange and Metallic Copper), Custom Freckled Fawn enamel dots in red, brown gems, Brown and Natural Jute twines. I want to point out that the kit value is over $65, which is an amazing deal at $34.99. Check it out:


There are three optional add-on items: DC197 Halloween Trimmings Stamp & Cut , DC195 Christmas Trimmings Stamp & Cut , DI327 Branch Wreath Fancy Die (D)

This kit is simply amazing. I love all the beautiful dies that are included in it and the endless possibilities for your projects! Today I am sharing a card that I created  using just a few of the items included in the kit.

I began by die-cutting the partial foliage branch from the Metallic Coper cardstock. Then I adhered it over a Snow Layering Paper card base. Then, I die-cut a tag shape (Infinity tags) from Kraft, and I layered it on top of the foliage with foam tape.


I  Gold-embossed  the sentiments over two thin strips of Sunset Orange card stock. I trimmed diagonally the left side of each strip, and  I layered them on top of the tag with foam tape.  I complemented the cluster with some small leaves that I die-cut from green card stock (I also  inked them a little bit directly with Pine Hybrid Ink). To finish off the card, I added twine, brown gemstones, gold and green silk sprinkles.


Well, as part of this release, Hero Arts is giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Here is the list of bloggers so you can get lots of inspiration:

  2. Beautiful cards!!! My heart is telling me that I need the kit AND all of the add-ons but my wallet is saying DON”T DO IT! Now I need to decide which one will win!!! Hoping to see that I am the kit winner so I can buy the add ons! Perfect scenario!!! LOL TFS!

  3. This is my favorite kit from Hero Arts thus far and I may not be able to resist. LOL Your card is beautiful and perfect for Fall.

  4. This is a great kit, as your card shows! I love how different your card is with the tag and other parts in fall colors but the leaves still in their summer green. Thanks for sharing!

  5. Great card. I really like the green leaves they pop. I would not have thought to use that color. Thanks for showing me how a different color can make the card.

  6. Terrific card – I love the “spray” of leaves behind the tag – that die is too cool! Thanks for the opportunity to win this terrific kit!

  8. I love the autumn feel of this kit and how the wreath can be changed up to look Christmasy. So versatile!

    I tried to order this several times yesterday and today. But each time I was interrupted and didn’t complete my order. And now…it’s sold out 😦

  9. Now this card I can do. I don’t have a die cutter but I have the next best thing. Last year I laminated a lot of leaves from my front yard and I have some left over. I can do the rest without the die cutter. I’m going to save this so I can try to make one. When I get it done, I will e-mail you a copy so you can see what I’ve done. I hope it comes out as nice as yours!

  10. Beautiful card, Mariana! I love your use of the adorable die cuts. This really is an amazing kit! Thanks so much for sharing with us and for participating in this great hop and giveaway.

  11. I can’t tell if my first comment went through. I’ve reloaded the page and still haven’t found it. If I messed up, here it is: Thank you for sharing your ideas, Mariana! I can see so many possibilities with all the goodies in the kit.

  12. Marianna, love your card. Gorgeous! This kit is so versatile and the combinations are endless with the add-ons. Thank you for the chance to win.
