November My Monthly Hero - Release + Giveaway!

Hello!! It's my favorite day of the month - Hero Arts release day! Yay! November's My Monthly Hero is another fun one, perfect for making Christmas tags and other goodies for the holidays! Today I'm sharing a card I created using some of the optional add-ons introduced with this month's release.


Today's card features a super sweet new stamp set called Winter Animals. It's a bunch of animal silhouette stamps. There are several bears, which I adore - I chose this handsome fella who's out enjoying the winter evening. I watercolored a strip of watercolor paper using my Daniel Smith paints, then die cut the shape with the fantastic new Tag Frames Infinity Dies. These are so useful - I'll be reaching for them all the time!! The message from the set was embossed in white on black cardstock, then cut out in strips. Snowflakes were added in unicorn white ink - the snowflake stamp is from another new set, Holiday Badges. My good ol' Stickles made a nice snowy ground, and I finished off the card with some sequins from the Frost mix. I love that it includes little stars!

I actually made a bunch of these, don't they look fun all piled together? Don't worry, I waited for the Stickles to dry (which of course was too long for my liking). hee hee


In case you missed it, I also created a couple tags this month - they were on the Hero Arts blog yesterday. I used other new products - the Paper Layering Santa Tag, Snowflake Tag Fancy Die and the beautiful Snowflake Pattern Bold Prints - and I combined them with messages from the main kit. Be sure to check them out on the Hero Arts blog for more detail!
 

And here's a closer look at the main kit, so much fun!! I created a few more projects with it - you can see them over on the Hero Arts website on the November page.

And now, let's hop! Be sure to visit all of these blogs and leave comments - Hero Arts will be giving away one kit to a lucky commenter, selected from the comments left across all of the blogs in the hop. You have until Sunday, November 12 to get those comments in, and the winner will be announced at a later date on the Hero Arts blog.
