December My Monthly Hero - Release + Giveaway!

Hello and welcome! It's the first Monday of the month so you know why I'm making an appearance here on my blog - it's time for the December My Monthly Hero release from Hero Arts! This month the kit will take you on a magic carpet ride. Not gonna lie, I was singing "A Whole New World..." the entire time I was creating with this month's kit!

I made a ton of projects with the kit - if you head over to the Hero Arts website, you will see them on the main homepage slider, as well as the page for the December kit. While I love the man and woman images from the kit (aka Aladdin and Jasmine, am I right?), I'm showing this one here today...


There's so many awesome things going on with this card! First, I colored the camel with my Zig Clean Color markers, and die cut him with the matching Frame Cut.


For the background, I used the stencil that's included in the kit (isn't it gorgeous??) with some embossing paste. Hero Arts included TCW's modeling paste as an optional add-on this month. This stuff is super fun - I recommend you give it a try if you've never used it. I put a little pile of it on my craft mat, and tinted it with an Orchid re-inker. It also works to tint it with your ink pad. I'll be sharing an Instagram story about how to do this today - be sure to check it out if you're interested, I'm stampinlibby on IG. After the embossing paste was completely dry, I used the frame portion of the window die cut included in the kit to cut out the shape. A bit of Stickles on top added a little shimmer, and I finished the card with a message from the kit and some gold glitter cardstock from my stash.


Here's a look at this month's awesome kit. It comes with FIVE exclusive inks - very nice!
Now it's time to 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, December 10th to get those comments in, and the winner will be announced at a later date on the Hero Arts blog.

  11. Libby, love the colours used on the stencil, I haven't seen a shaped stencil prior to this one in the Hero Arts kit, they have all been full sheets, or simple shapes such as circles. Not an Arabian tower at al! Love your card design, really do. :O)
