August My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #3 + Giveaway!

by Ilina Crouse August 04, 2018 402 Comments

 

We are back for another countdown post, leading up to the release of the August My Monthly Hero kit! Release day is Monday, August 6th at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. We'll be sharing ideas for using both the main kit, as well as new optional add-on products that will be available on Monday. And don't forget to leave a comment on this and every post as we will be giving away a kit. Now let's join Ilina who is sharing another look at this fabulous kit...

Welcome back to day #2 of the August My Monthly Hero countdown. Ilina Crouse here this morning with another look at this month's kit. I am a huge coffee lover, so this kit is right up my alley. 

For my card today I used the cafe scene Fancy Die to dry emboss on piece of Snow Layering Paper. Once done, the piece was trimmed down to 3 3/4" x 5" and ink blended using Cotton Candy ink. Then I splashed little bit of the new Cocoa Liquid Watercolor (one of the new add-ons this month.)

Stamp the two coffee cups using Intense Black Ink and die cut them, as well as some of the tiny hearts (I cut those by hand). Then colored using Copic markers. 

To create the shaped foam, I stamped the images into the coffee cups and used them as a guide line to apply the Crystal Clear Lacquer pen. While it was still wet I applied White Puff embossing powder and heat set it. This will look like foam! It's an amazing effect. Both the lacquer pen and White Puff embossing powder come in this month's kit.

Stamp the sentiment onto some dark brown card stock and emboss with White embossing powder, cut to size and assemble the whole card onto Kraft folded note card, adding some Champagne sequins as a finishing effect, along with some lacquer pen onto the tiny hearts. Let it dry before handling.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you are inspired. Don't forget to check back later today (and tomorrow) for more creative inspiration using this kit. 

Win a kit before you can buy it! Just leave a comment on this (and every) Countdown to Creativity post!  We'll randomly draw one lucky winner from all the comments left across all the countdown posts, and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, August 6th, before the kit launches at 1pm Eastern time. The more you comment, the more chances to win! Good luck!

I love how creative you are with the subtle background imprint
I am especially curious about the puffy embossing powder.
Great job!
