Hero Arts January 2024 Release Blog Hop

Hi crafty friends! Thank you for joining me for the Hero Arts January 2024 release.

The Classic Kit includes:

  • 5 Color Layering Floral Background Stencils, 5.25" x 6.5"

  • Coordinating Heart Window Frame Cut

  • Love You Fancy Dies

  • Love Messages Clear Stamp Set, 4" x 6"

  • 6 Sheets of Camel Watercolor Paper, 5" x 7"

  • 3 Core Ink Cubes (Moss, Azalea, Summer Sky)

The Premium Kit includes everything in the Classic Kit + the items below, which are:

  • 10 Floral Fancy Dies

  • Gold Leaf Flakes

  • Sparkle Clear Lacquer Pen

  • Pink Gold Metallic Spray, 1 oz.

To contrast the colors of my countdown card, I chose to create a more masculine card using the Premium January MMH kit. I used Granite cardstock + Rounded Rectangle Dies as my base for inking the layering stencils. I stacked and offset the sentiments, stamping the "xoxo" twice in summer sky. Finishing touches included using gold flakes on the foliage die cut and using the sparkle pen to highlight some of the ink blended areas.

This shaker card is sure to add a smile to someone's face. I die cut the DF188 Love You So Much Cover Plate (F) from black glitter cardstock and backed it with Hero Arts Acetate. I heat embossed the CG933 Ode to Andy Warhol Script Bold Prints with gold embossing powder and watermark ink. I then ink blended Peony Core ink and added icicle sequins mix to create a shaker. I finished this up by added the lightest pink tone of Pink Hues Enamel dots to the front.

Do not forget to check out all of the Add-On products.

Thank you for joining me today! Which product from the release are you most excited about?
