August My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #4 + Giveaway!
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 on Monday. Now let's join Michelle who is sharing another look at this fabulous kit...
If you love coffee and tea, you will love this kit! Personally I do not drink either, but I have still enjoyed playing with the fabulous kit and I have a lot of friends who love coffee, so it is a wonderful kit for me to make cards for them with.
I started off by creating the background to my card. I took the Floral Doily Bold Prints stamp which is an optional add-on this month and stamped it on to watercolour paper using Versamark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and then heat set. I then watercoloured it with the new Cocoa Liquid Watercolor which is also an add-on this month. Once the piece was dry, I die cut it using one of the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies.
I then took a die slightly larger than the die cut piece and used this to emboss the circle on to the card base. The watercoloured piece was then added on top. I took one of the cup images from the main kit and stamped this on to white cardstock with Intense Black Ink. I then lightly coloured the image with Copic Markers.
The cup was added to the card with foam tape. I took one of the sentiments from the main kit stamp set and stamped this on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied White Embossing Powder and heat set. This was then cut into a strip and added to the card with foam tape also. To finish off, I cut a heart from the Sun Showers dies and coloured it with Copic Markers. I added it to the cup with liquid glue and then covered it with the Crystal Clear Lacquer Pen that comes in the kit.
