Hello Friends, How are you today? I am super excited to be hopping along with Hero Arts for the new February My Monthly Kit. Woo Hoo!! Right off the bat I have to tell you that kit value and it is over $70 & it’s such an amazing deal at $34.99!! Double WOW!
To start at the beginning of the hop go to the Hero Arts blog here. I have lots to share with you today so let’s jump right in shall we.
In the video I share the masking of the images and my process as the card came together using my markers and blending solution.
Masking adorable images and watching a scene unfold is super fun. The “Fun in the Rain” add on stamp set has so many great possibilities! Adding a stencil with some distress ink is a quick finish and allows time to add more tiny details to my images. Adding “droplets” from Pretty Pink Posh gave my one layer card more dimension. (I used both sizes ..this one too)
The new nesting cloud die cuts are perfect for some shaped cards. I would rather spend my time coloring the images and doing a quick background with a stencil. This stencil is such a beauty but, hard to see in the photo.
I wanted to create a little wagon for the baby duck to ride in but, didn’t have any wheels and racked my brain for a quick fix. Google eyes were the answer! Flipping them over and adding enamel accents on the back … it’s flat.. and it worked perfectly. After pouring some of the enamel accents on the back I set the wheels aside to dry and finish my other cards.
Another stencil was used for this background. The little pig is so cute and would cheer anyone up. I cut up the packaging from the cloud stacking dies for my shaker cards today instead of acetate. Yellow foam was used to build my layers so the sequins had plenty of room to move around.
The only problem is … photographing them is a challenge. I opted to stamp my sentiment on the background and pop my colored critters on the top of my shaker card. The “Nesting Clouds Infinity Dies” are so fun to create shaker cards with or to make a shaped card.
And … when you want to go super simple. Love the sentiments in this stamp set.
Isn’t this kit a jaw dropper? and the value is crazy! If you are wondering why I didn’t use any of this great product … because there was a limited supply … so I was gifted with the add ons & they are just as fab!
