Hey it’s the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero December 2022 release day. I can’t believe we are already to the last kit for 2022. You should have arrived here from Channin’s blog. This month we invite you to go on a celestial fantasy adventure with us! Our December release is full of stars, galaxies, moons and clouds. The playful December My Monthly Hero kit, with its adorable space cadets, is perfect for birthdays, encouragement, or simply sending a friendly hello. The kit includes a jam-packed 6 x 8 stamp set with coordinating dies. There’s also the perfect cling stamp for your interstellar backgrounds, a gorgeous Rose Gold pigment mini ink pad, and four half sheets of our ever-popular Pitch Black cardstock!
Galaxy overload on this card for sure. LOL I used Hero Arts Deep Ocean and Amethyst Core Inks for the background. For the black piece in the middle, I used Hero Arts Black Watercolor Paper with Iuille metallic watercolors. You will see in the tutorial just how perfect these Hero Arts inks work with these metallic watercolors

For my bonus card today I used the Hero Art Orbit stamp set. Using the Hero Arts Oval Infinity Dies, I created a mask to first blend on Hero Arts Azalea and Lemon Drop inks in the center of a piece of Hero Arts Dove White Cardstock. Once the blending was complete, I started on the background.
Using the oval that was cut out, I place it over the colorful area so I could blend the background. The background of this card was made using Hero Arts Licorice Reactive Ink along with the Hero Arts Shimmer Spray in Iridescent. Next it was time to heat emboss the Orbit stamp onto the colorful oval using Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and Hero Arts Clear Embossing Powder.
I really love how this card came out. A small sentiment stamped on Hero Arts Papaya Cardstock in Hero Arts Unicorn White Pigment ink and heat embossed in clear embossing powder.
To finish off the card, I used a few little iridescent stars I had in my stash and placed this panel on a side folding Dove White card base. We will give away a $50 gift card, drawn from the comments left across the hop. Enter by Sunday, December 11th at 11:59pm Pacific, and the winner will be announced on the Hero Arts blog the following week. Thanks for stopping by everyone. Next on the hop is Daniel. Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you back here soon.
