Hero Arts November My Monthly Hero Kit And Blog Hop

I hope you are all ready for the cutest My Monthly Hero (MMH) Kit! I had so much fun playing with this kit and coming up with different ideas. Lets take a look at it:

November is here and the holiday season is upon us! With our November My Monthly Hero kit, we have everything you need to create adorable handmade tags and/or gift toppers for all of your Christmas gift-giving. The dies in this kit are equally great for cards, scrapbook pages and even felt ornaments! We’ve included a stamp set with patterns to decorate the tag pieces, and plenty of holiday-themed messages, too. To round out the kit, we’ve included cardstock and glitter paper for die cutting your characters. White Puff Embossing Powder is fun for adding some dimensional texture, and our Lacquer Pen adds dimensional shine. And last but not least, there’s festive red & white twine for embellishing, or attaching your tags to gifts.

There are a lot of fun options with this kit. If you’d like to order it you can do so here. And don’t forget, Hero Arts is celebrating their new website with $10 off of $25 through November 5th. That makes this kit (or any other items you add) A STEAL!

Now lets get into what I created for you today!

I first cut the elements for my reindeer from white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. The only exception to this was the scarf, which was cut from Kiwi cardstock and stamped with Key Lime Fizz Reactive ink using the dot pattern stamp. I adhered all the elements together with liquid glue and added lacquer to the nose and holly berries. A layer of white cardstock was added to the scarf and antlers for more stability.

I cut a panel of Cranberry cardstock to 4 1/4 by 5 1/2. I used the dot pattern and Unicorn pigment ink to randomly add “snow” to the background. I also added splatters of white for smaller “flakes”. And now is where things went a little wrong. I didn’t account for the antlers when deciding to make a little peek a boo door. I cut the door and realized after that the reindeer wouldn’t cover it like I wanted. So time to improvise! I moved the reindeer to the right accounting for the space needed to open the door. To make the door less noticeable, larger snowflakes and the Merry Christmas sentiment came to the rescue! I stamped and white heat embossed the snowflakes. I also added white pigment ink to the edges for a frosty look.

I temporarily lined up my red panel onto the cardbase to position the inside sentiments. I removed the panel and stamped the front of the cardbase in Green Apple Reactive ink. The open me on the scarf was also stamped with Green Apple to let the recipient know there is a hidden message. Finally, the finished panel was adhered to the cardbase with liquid adhesive being sure to not to glue the little door.

I have a few other ideas for this kit also! I made a simple box using a 1-2-3 punchboard, a tag from a laminated pocket that I added glitter and sequins to, a treat bag, and a cute tag for a candy cane.
