Hero Arts 2021 Catalog Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to…

Today, I am very happy to be participating in the Hero Arts Catalog Blog Hop. Hero as we all know, always brings us amazing new products that will keep us inspired and creative. Please click >>>HERE<<< so you can see the whole catalog and start making your wishlist.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission from Hero Arts at no cost for you. Thanks!

I created three cards using four of the products included in the catalog: Happy Thanks Stamp & Cut XL, Envelope Accessories Fancy Dies, Sending Love Mail and the Hexagons Infinity Dies.

For this card, I used Happy Thanks Stamp & Cut XL along with the Hexagons Infinity dies, take a look: The design of this card is quite simple, and I only played with different colors and sizes of hexagons to create a background for the main sentiment. I die cut the word “thanks” from white cardstock and black foam. I like to do this to add dimension to the word and avoid having a bunch of little pieces of foam tape behind the words. I placed the white slightly off center over the black to make it look like a drop shadow. The sentiment was simply white-embossed over black cardstock and I embellished the card with some colorful sequins.


For this card I used Envelope Accessories Fancy Dies and Sending Love Mail stamp set. I have to say that I love that little envelope. It is the perfect size to put some flowers in it…or hearts, or whatever you wish. Of course, the flower and leaf dies were super fun to color with Chameleon Markers. The background was created with Distress ink and a sponge dauber. Then I stamped the words block included in the stamp set. I finished up this card with a white-embossed sentiment, decorative tape, Sparkle silk and some sequins.


The third card was a mix of products. I used the Happy Thanks Stamp & Cut XL to die cut the word “happy” from white cardstock and then, I gave it color with two ddifferent colors of Distress Inks. I also die cut the word from black foam to add dimension, just like card #1. I created a bouquet of flowers using the dies from the Envelope Accessories Fancy Dies. I Colored the shapes with watercolors. For the background, just like card #2, I used the Sending Love Mail stamp set and Distress inks. I sprinkled a bit of water to create the water marks over the DI background and I also stamped the words block over it. I complemented the card with a strip of vellum, decorative tape and some crystal blue and green dots.

My Monthly Hero Blog Hop+ Giveaway • December

The new My Monthly Hero kit has just been released and it will be available as of TODAY December 7th at the Hero Arts store, but be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone. Please remember that you have the option to subscribe and receive the kit monthly and never miss one.  Pre-order your kit today – we estimate the kit will begin to ship on Friday, December the 11th and continues throughout the following week.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission from Hero Arts at no cost for you. Thanks!

The fabulous MMH of December features a wonderful Heroscape sky scene and other great products that will keep you entertained creating fabulous cards, check it out:

MMH December

The Kit includes: 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set, Hope Word Fancy Die, Cloud Fancy Die, Cloud Window Die, 4 reactive Cubes (Early Dawn, Morning Mist, Chartreuse, Thistle), Yellow Prisma Embossing Powder 0.5 oz. Kit Value: $78.00 Kit Cost: $34.99

Please don’t forget that every month Hero also releases a bunch of fabulous Ad-On products, which are also available for purchase and they are themed with relation to the current MMH.

So, for today I made three cards. All of them were created using the images and Fancy Dies from the MMH of December

My first card, showcases the Hope Fancy Die along with the Window and Cloud Fancy Dies. I die cut the window and two clouds from white cardstock to create a frame/base for the focal point. The focal point is the Hope Fancy Die which I die cut from white cardstock as well. I achieved the ombré effect by coloring the word with Chameleon markers.

To add extra dimension to the word, I die cut two more words and I used them as layers. Next, I flicked a bit of Sparkle Silk over the base card and then I adhered the window, clouds and word to the card. I finished it up with some clear drops.


The second card features some of the stamps also included in the kit, take a look:

I began by creating the clouds background. The kit comes with three layers of clouds but I only used two of them. I stamped them with soft ink colors followed by the larger sun rays, sentiment and flying birds image. To achieve perfectly stamped images, I used my Misti Regular Hero Black which is one of the tools that I highly recommend to invest on if you are getting into the stamping hobby.

As the final touches for this card I added some Glaze details along with some Sparkle Cuts and Sparkle Dust.


The third card is a bonus card, because I wasn’t planning to make it, but the Hope Fancy Die is so pretty that I couldn’t resist making another card with it. This time I paired the word with an embossing folder that I have in my stash, and I though it was just perfect for the die:

For this card I used white cardstock to die cut the word, and I only added a foam circle underneath the “O” center to add a bit of dimension. The “H” and “E” edges were merely adhered to the embossed panel with craft glue. The complete panel was adhered to the white base card with foam tape.

I added a few clear drops as the final touches and voila! Simple yet so pretty.

My Monthly Hero Blog Hop+ Giveaway • November

The new My Monthly Hero kit has just been released and it will be available as of TODAY November 2nd at the Hero Arts store, but be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone. Please remember that you have the option to subscribe and receive the kit monthly and never miss one.  Pre-order your kit today – we estimate the kit will begin to ship on Friday, November the 6th and continues throughout the following week.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission from Hero Arts at no cost for you. Thanks!

The fabulous MMH of November features Christmas images and other great products that will keep you entertained creating fabulous cards, take a look:

MMH November

The Kit includes: 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set, 5 Coordinating Frame Cuts, 6 Coordinating Masking Cuts, Winter Sky Reactive Ombré Ink Pad, Red Vine Washi Tape, Winter Forest Sequins. Kit Value: $86.00 Kit Cost: $34.99

Please don’t forget that every month Hero also releases a bunch of fabulous Ad-On products, which are also available for purchase and they are themed related to the current MMH.

So, for today I made two cards. Both of them were created using the images of the MMH of November, take a look:

For this card I used one of the ad-ons stamps called Etched Winter Scene Bold Prints, and I used it to create a subtle background for the card (I like to use the Misti Regular Hero Black to stamp large solid images, because you can always stamp it over again to achieve a perfect stamped image). I also used a white pen to enhance a little bit the snow dots of the stamped image.

To create the focal point, I stamped the house image three times using different colors of ink. I want to point out that this kit comes with some dies called Masking Frames which are intended for masking the images. In this case, I used those masking frames as regular frame cuts, and that is why there isn’t a white border around the images.

The sentiment was stamped over a strip of cardstock and then I die cut it with a Ribbon Banner die. I used the banner as the base for the cute houses and I finished up this card with some white sequins and some Glaze details.

The second card features the snowman and a small rectangular stamp also included in the kit, take a look:

This is a 3 5/8″ X 4 1/4″ card, which means that instead of getting only two folded cards out of a single 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of cardstock, I got three cards. The size is obviously smaller, but for small images I think a small card makes them look even cuter. The background was created with the Waves Stencil, and I used it to emboss the cardstock, just to add a bit of texture.

The rectangular stamp background was stamped with Mint Julep to Emerald Green Ombré Ink Pad. Then, the snowman was stamped with black ink and I added some color details. I also die cut him with its matching Masking Frame. To finish up the card, I white embossed one the sentiments over a red cardstock strip and I added some sequins and glaze details.

My Monthly Hero Blog Hop+ Giveaway • October

The new My Monthly Hero kit has just been released and it will be available as of TODAY October 5th at the Hero Arts store, but be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone. Please remember that you have the option to subscribe and receive the kit monthly and never miss one.  Pre-order your kit today – we estimate kit shipping will begin Friday, October 9th and continues throughout the following week.

The fabulous MMH of October features Christmas images and other great products that will keep you entertained creating fabulous cards, take a look:

The Kit includes: 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set, 12 Coordinating Frame Cuts, 1 Ornament shape die, 2 Inner Ornaments dies, 3 Embossing Powders (Red, Glacier Blue, White Sparkle), 1/2 oz. each , 1 Watermark & Embossing Ink Cube. Kit Value: $76.00 Kit Cost: $34.99

Please don’t forget that every month Hero also releases a bunch of fabulous Ad-On products, which are also available for purchase and they are themed related to the current MMH.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission from Hero Arts at no cost for you. Thanks!

So, for today I made two cards. Both of them were created using the images of the MMH of October, take a look:

This was quite a simple card, featuring many of the tiny images that can be used in so many ways. This time I used them to create a background using different color of inks and randomly stamped the images to create a pattern. After that, I adhered the panel over a folded card. I want to point out that many of the tiny images have their matching frame cuts which opens up more possibilities for your creativity!

The sentiment was stamped over a strip of cardstock and I left enough space on both sides so I could create the banner ends. To create the folded banner, I trimmed off the ends of the rectangle. Then, I used a white strip of cardstock as a base for banner. I trimmed around the banner with a craft knife and then I adhered it over the card. I finished off this card with a couple of cute birds that hold the banner and water droplets.

The second card features the big ornament shape and stamp as the focal point, take a look:

I like to use the Misti Regular Hero Black to stamp large solid images, because you can always stamp over again to achieve a perfect stamped image. Anyway, I also used the matching frame cut the stamped ornament and to give it dimension, I die cut a piece of foam. I created a subtle background with liquid color and a sponge dauber over white cardstock. I flicked some Sparkle silk over and I die cut it with the ornament frame shape too… phew! So, I layered the background, foam and red ornament together, and adhered the whole piece over a white cardstock panel.

I stamped and die cut the flying santa and I adhered it over the ornament. I complemented this card with a sentiment, some white sequins and a silver string bow.

The fabulous MMH of September features a Fall themed HeroScape and other great products that will keep you entertained creating fabulous cards, take a look:

The Kit includes: 6″ x 8″ HeroScape Clear Stamp Set, 3″ x 4″ Clear Stamp Set, 5 Coordinating Frame Cuts, 5 Ink Cubes (Grape Slush, Moss, Lemon Drop, Creamsicle, Cup O’ Joe), • 6 5.5″ x 8.5″ Glitter Sheets (Orange, Bronze, Copper). Kit Value: $80.00 Kit Cost: $34.99

Please don’t forget that every month Hero also releases a bunch of fabulous Ad-On products, which are also available for purchase and they are themed related to the current MMH.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission from Hero Arts at no cost for you. Thanks!

So, for today I made two cards. Both of them were created using the images of the MMH of September, take a look:

For this card I began by creating the background. I used a Lapis cardstock panel and Faded Jeans Distress Ink to darken the upper part of the panel. Additionally, I sprayed a bit of water to create a bit of lighter tiny spots. Then, I stamped the corn images (solid stripe and corn detail stripe) using two different colors of ink. I created four strips and I die cut them with the matching frame cut. I adhered three of the strips overlapping them, so they look like rows, and I affixed them over the blue panel with foam tape. The remaining strip was adhered directly over the panel.

After that, I stamped the scarecrow and crow with Cup O’Joe ink and die cut them with their matching frame cuts. I adhered them behind the three corn rows block and above the single corn row. Finally, I white-embossed a sentiment, I adhered the panel over a folded card, and I added some sequins as the final touches.

For my second card I used more of the images included in the set. Take a look:

As I have said before, the best way to achieve excellent results while using Color Layering stamps is by using the Misti Regular Hero Black. Maybe a bit of investment here, but it is really worth it. Anyway, to create the pumpkin/corn field I stamped the different images with a different color of ink, layering them up until the scene was complete. I think this is the part that I enjoyed the most while using this type of stamps! Then, I die cut the block with the frame cut.

Next, I created a striped background using the solid corn strip. I stamped the strip using different colors of ink (light to dark) over a white cardstock panel. I also stamped the sentiment and flying birds directly over the striped panel with black ink. Then, I adhered the pumpkin field over the panel with foam tape and the whole panel over a folded card. I complemented this card with the scare crow and crow, a sentiment, some sequins and Glaze details.

So, for today I made two cards. The first one was created using some of the images of the fabulous MMH kit, take a look:

I have to point out that with all those cute images with their matching frames, whatever images you chose, your card is going to be awesome. These images are ideal to color, so in this case I used markers. Additionally, I added some Glaze/Sparkles details to the images, just to make them a bit more fun.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission from Hero Arts at no cost for you. Thanks!

I selected different colors of HA cardstock to create a colorful striped background. Once I adhered the strips over a white folded card I arranged the stamped images onto the card, to create a little relaxing scene. I finish off my card with a white-embossed sentiment over a black cardstock strip and some sequins.

As in every month, there are also some wonderful Add-On products, and I created a second card with a couple of those, check it out:

Card #2 showcases a cute stamp set called Bubble Bath and its matching frame cuts. Just like in my first card, I simply stamped the images with black ink and then I colored the images with markers.

Next, I using a 7/8″ square punch I created different colors of squares to create a background for my scene. I adhered the squares onto a white panel to created a tiled rhombus and then, I arranged the stamped images onto it. I complemented this card with a white-embossed sentiment, some sequins and Glaze/Sparkle details.

As in every month, there are also some wonderful Add-On products, and with some of those, I created two cards that I am sharing with you today. My first card features Deeply in Love stamp set, its matching frame cuts and a wonderful die called Underwater Pillar Window Die, take a look:

Using Hero Arts Orchid and Indigo Bold Inks I created a two color background. I used a sponge dauber to achieve an ombré effect. After that, I die cut the the pretty Underwater Pillar Window Die from it. I took a shortcut to create this shaker card, because I used a clear pocket envelope which I filled with green confetti and some gold sequins instead of creating it with acetate and foam tape as we normally do. Although, the sequins and confetti don’t move around as much as a normal shaker card. The envelope comes with a sticky back, so I stuck it over a folded card. Then, I simply affixed the window shape over it with a few foam squares.

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission from Hero Arts. Thanks!

Next, I used the Deeply in Love stamp set and matching frame cuts to create the dips diver and algae foliage. Notice that I use a bit of marker details over the diver, just so the image doesn’t look so flat. I adhered the stamped images over the card with glue dots and foam tape and I complemented the card with a stamped sentiment, sequins and some tiny hearts that I cut using the HA Nested Hearts.

Supplies Card 1: CM457 Deeply in Love | DI782 Deeply In Love Frame Cuts | DI779 Underwater Pillar Window Die |Nested Frame Cuts Hearts

Card #2 showcases the Submarine Fancy Die. So, I die-cut the submarine from four different colors of cardstock and using detail scissors, I trimmed off different parts of the shape, kind of like assembling a tiny puzzle. I put the pieces together using craft glue.

Then, I made a few strips from different colors of cardstock and I adhered them over a white panel to create a striped background. After that, I simply adhered the panel over a folded card and I adhered the submarine with foam tape.

Additionally, I stamped a sentiment from the Deep Sea Messages over white cardstock and I die cut it into a circle. I want to point out the this stamp set was designed to go with the HA Peek-A-Boo dies, but of course you can use the sentiment and images to create whatever your heart desires 😉 Finally, I simple adhered some Blues Hero Hues Enamel dots to complement my card.

My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway

The new My Monthly Hero kit has just been released and it will be available as of TODAY June 8th at the Hero Arts store, but be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone. Please remember that you have the option to subscribe and receive the kit monthly and never miss one.  

As you know, every state in this country is taking steps to get back to normal at their own pace, so I am sharing a Hero statement that I would like to share with you:

“We are working on restarting our operations in a safe manner, bringing back our production and shipping teams with social distancing, and keeping our warehouse cleaned under the strictest standards. We are first focusing on all of the orders in-house for all of our wonderful and patient customers, subscribers, and international customers, and hope to get back to regular shipping times once we are through what was delayed. We estimate June kits and add-ons will begin shipping on Friday, June 19, after all previous orders have gone out.”

Now, going back to the fabulous MMH of June, this one features a 4 x 6″ stamp set and a 6″x6″ cling stamp along with dies and other great products perfect to create amazing projects for Summer, take a look:

MH0620 MY MONTHLY HERO KIT JUNE 2020

from: Hero Arts Rubber Stamps

The kit includes: 4″ x 6″ Clear Stamp Set, 6″ x 6″ Northern Lights Cling Stamp, 3 Fancy Scene Dies, 10 Coordinating Frame Cuts, 2 5.5″ x 8.5″ Sheets of Black Handmade Watercolor Paper,  Glow In The Dark Lacquer Pen, Shiny Silver Stars. The value of this kit is $74, but it can be yours for only $34.99… so this is really a good deal! 

This month, there also some wonderful Add-On products, and with some of those, I created two cards that I am sharing with you today. My first card features Color Layering Howling Wolf Stamp set, Color Layering Howling Wolf Frame Cuts and two Fancy Dies from the main kit. I want to point out that the HA Color Layering stamps work amazingly well with the Misti Mini Hero Black, so keep the great tool in mind when you get any of the HA Color Layering stamps…

Be aware that my post includes affiliate links, which means that if you click on and shop through them, I will receive a tiny commission from Hero Arts. Thanks!

I used my Misti Mini Hero Black to stamp the wolf and Moon. I used three different colors for the wolf (Soft Brown, Soft Granite, and Intense Black) and two for the moon (Soft Vanilla and Soft Brown). The image is so nice with many details that make it so real!

For the background I used two of the Fancy dies included in the main kit. The mountains were simply die cut from light gray cardstock and the rocks from brown cardstock. This die is actually the die that has a light house, but I trimmed off the light house with scissors and I only used the bottom part as the base for the wolf. The rest, a dark sky, a white embossed sentiment and some sequins.

My second card features three Add-On products: Shine Bright Stamp set, Shine Bright Frame Cuts and the Shooting Star Stencil. Take a look:

For this card I created a subtle background using liquid colors and shaving cream. Then, I used the Shooting Star stencil along with modeling paste to create a dimensional impression of the stencil. I finished it up with some sparkle silk.

The pretty mermaid and dolphin were stamped with different colors of ink also using my Misti Mini Hero Black. I love this tool because you can create ombre effects so easily, and once you have it you want to use it all the time! Finally, I simply included a sentiment over a circle shape, and some sequins.

The new My Monthly Hero kit has just been released and it will be available as of TODAY March 2nd at the Hero Arts store, but be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone.

The theme for March features a wonderful color layering set that comes with dies and other great products perfect to create amazing projects for Spring with an oriental touch, take a look:

The kit includes: 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set, 5 Coordinating Frame Cut Dies, 5 Ink Cubes (Green Hills, Field Greens, Dusty Blue, Rose Madder, Cotton Candy), 6 5.5″x 8.5″ Sheets of Cardstock (2 each of Peony, Kiwi and Mist),  Pink Puff Embossing Powder 0.5 oz. The value of this kit is $70, but it can be yours for only $34.99… so this is really a good deal!

This month, there also some phenomenal add-ons products, and I had the chance to create with some of them. My first card features Dreams Will Blossom Stamp set and its Frame Cuts:

The set includes a couple of flower bouquets and some sentiments. I stamped one of the flowers stamps over white cardstock, and I added some color details with markers. This stamp is so pretty that it doesn’t really need much color to look lovely! I complemented the image with a sentiment that I white-embossed over a black cardstock strip. I placed both of them over a double layer of rectangles.

Then, I created the background using a stencil called Leaf Pattern (this stencil came along with the June MMH kit). I used it to embossed a dark pink cardstock panel, and after that I adhered it over a black folded card. I adhered the focal point layers over the card, and I embellished it with yellow enamel dots.

My second card shows a cute and fun set called Kittens in Kimonos.

I began by creating the stamped background. Using the Parasol Bold Prints stamp with red ink over a red cardstock panel, I created a subtle image. I added the panel over a black folded card.

After that, I stamped two of the kittens over white cardstock and colored them with markers. I die cut them with their matching frame cuts. Then, I white-embossed a sentiment over a black cardstock strip. To finish up the card I arranged the stamped element over the card and I complement them with a white circle shape, decorative tape and some enamel dots. Simple yet fun!

My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway

The new My Monthly Hero kit has been just released and it will be available as of TODAY November 4 th at the Hero Arts store, but be aware that this kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone. This month the kits will begin shipping from Hero Arts on Friday, November 8th, and you can pre-order it today. I want to point out that you have the option to subscribe and receive the kit monthly and never miss one.  

The theme for November features adorable images and dies perfect to create Holidays projects, take a look:

The kit includes: 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set, 13 Coordinating Frame Cut Dies, 1 Doorway Fancy Die, 5 Fancy Dies, , 2 Plastic Ornaments, 6 Envelopes (Size A10), 6 Glassine Bags, and 1 Glitter Lacquer Pen. The value of this kit is $81.50, but it can be yours for only $34.99… so this is really a good deal!

This time I created three projects using some of the add-on products. The first card features the Tri-fold Edge Winter Pine Fancy Dies:

This is quite a simple card design where I die cut two of the dies to create a double layered card. I adhered them over a subtle background and I included a gold-embossed sentiment from the May your Home be filled with Joy stamp set. I embellished this card with just a few gold sequins.

My second card showcases one of my favorites sets of this release, the Christmas Gingerbread Cookies

I stamped the images with Intense Black Ink and I colored them with markers. I die cut the images with their matching dies. The sentiment was white-embossed over black cardstock, and then I die cut it into a label using one the dies included in the Holiday Meal Stamp and Cut set. I arranged and adhered the images over a subtle background sprinkled with Sparkle Silk.

My third project features a fun set called Mountain of Joy and its matching frame cuts:

I stamped the large image with Intense Black Ink and colored with markers without adding details of light or shadows… Then I added Glaze with Sparkle cut details over the bows and the ornaments. To create the background I put polka dot decorative tape over a white panel, then I adhered the colored image and I included a white-embossed sentiment to finish up this card.

Hero will give away one $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, November 10th at 11:59pm pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week.
