August My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #2 + Giveaway

by Caly Person August 02, 2019 298 Comments

Hello! We are continuing the countdown to the release of the August My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, August 5th at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. Now let's join Caly for another look at our next kit!

Hi, friends! It’s Caly here. Today, I’ve created a clean and simple card using two of the images from this month’s kit. 

I stamped and colored my king and queen using Copic markers before die-cutting. While I was doing this, I realized that the same die cuts both images!  Thought that was pretty neat and think you can make some fun spinner cards!

Copic colors used:  R30, R22, V01, V04, C1, C5, C7, Y02, Y17, Y28, R05, R29, E51, E35, E39, B24, B26

On a white piece of cardstock, I masked off an area to ink-blend some Soft Brown for the floor and then flipped the masking paper to ink-blend the other side with Cornflower ink. To add a bit more interest, I flipped the cardstock over and scored two lines at the center of the cardstock to mimic stair steps.

To finish my card, I added the images using foam adhesive and stamped the sentiment below the first step. I really wanted to create a throne scene and I hope I’ve accomplished that with this card. 

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 countdown posts. The winner will be announced first thing Monday morning, August 5th, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

Thank you for stopping by today!

I have a friend who’s daughter is turning 1 this year & I can see so many ‘princess’ cards for her for years to come! (Of course it would be just my luck if she ends up being more of a tomboy..)
