Good afternoon! Today is release day for the December My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts and I’m sharing two projects using the kit and add-ons!

The December kit contains:
- 4″ x 6″ Clear Stamp Set
- 11 Coordinating Frame Cuts
- Fancy Cover Plate Die (4.25″ x 5.5″)
- City Cling Stamp (6″ x 6″)
- 4 Sheets of Black Cardstock (5.5″ x 8.5″)
- 3 Reactive Ink Cubes (Berry Smoothie, Fruit Punch, Lemon Drop)
- 10 Clothespins
I decided to use a rainbow of reactive inks two ways to show their versatility! My first project uses them with simple ink-blending!
First I stamped the cling stamp from the kit onto a panel of white cardstock with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I blended taffy, fruit punch, creamsicle, lemon drop, key lime fizz, pool party, splash, and thistle onto the panel.
I added a panel of vellum to soften the design and then die-cut the kit coverplate die from black cardstock. I adhered that to the vellum and then added a sentiment. Finally I added yellow enamel dots to create the string lights to add a little pop of color and dimension to my card!
For my second card I stamped the Geometric City bold prints onto a panel of watercolor paper with embossing ink and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I smooshed the same reactive inks onto a craft mat, spritzed them with water and shimmer spray, and dipped my panel into the inks. I repeated the smooshing a few times until I got a softly blended rainbow and then set it aside to dry completely.
While it was drying I stamped a sentiment from the City Park Heroscape set with embossing ink and heat-embossed it on black cardstock with white embossing powder. I trimmed it to a thin label and adhered it to the smooshed panel with foam tape and a tangle of black thread. I finished the card with a few enamel dots!
