August My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #3 + Giveaway

by Ilina Crouse August 03, 2019 269 Comments

Hello! Welcome back to the countdown to the release of the August My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is coming up on Monday, August 5th at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. Now let's join Ilina for another look at the kit!

Hi everyone! Ilina here sharing another idea using this month's My Monthly Hero Kit. I had so much fun playing with this kit and creating different scenes. 

For today's card I used the castle die from the kit and die cut it from a piece of Dove White cardstock measuring 4" x 5 1/4", then colored with alcohol based markers. I slid a piece of paper between the castle and the sky in such a way that the castle was covered and ink blended Tide Pool ink to create the sky.

Next, I stamped the queen image using Intense Black ink, colored and die cut. Set it aside. I cut another piece of Dove White cardstock measuring 4" x 5 1/4" and cut a circle using the Circle Infinity Dies. To finish the card, I stamped the sentiment and assembled the pieces.

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 so much for stopping by and hope you have a creative day!
