August My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #3 + Giveaway
We are back with another look at the August My Monthly Hero release! the kit will be available on Monday, August 7th at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. We’ll be sharing ideas for using the main kit and optional add-on products all weekend long, so stay tuned for inspiration! Now let’s join Michelle, who is sharing another look at this fabulous kit, available on Monday!
Well, isn’t this kit fabulous! I love that it can be used to make projects for lots of different occasions. You can make some great backgrounds with this kit too! For my card, I started off with the background. Taking a piece of Yupo paper, I applied Alcohol Inks to it, blowing air over the piece to create some movement. I then splattered over white paint to create some stars. This piece was then set aside to dry.
I took the boy on the moon image from the main stamp set and stamped this on to a piece of white cardstock with Intense Black Ink. I then stamped the star using Versamark Ink. I applied silver embossing powder and then heat set. You get the coordinating dies in the kit but I wanted to have the whole image cut out, along with the star I added, so I fussy cut the image out with scissors.
Once the background piece was dry, I added this to a white A2 card base and then cut two strips of white cardstock to add on top. I took the ‘thinking of you’ sentiment from the Prayers Stamp & Cut and stamped this on to the top piece. The stamp set has some wonderful sentiments in it, but I wanted a smaller scale one for the design of my card and I thought the ‘thinking of you’ sentiment went well. I added the cardstock strips to the front of the card with foam tape and then added the moon and boy image on top.
