August My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #2 + Giveaway

Jul 30, 2020 Janette Kausen

Welcome back to the Countdown to Creativity! The August My Monthly Hero Kit release day is Monday, August 3, at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. Now let's join Janette for another wonderful peek at this month's "Staycation" themed kit!

Hello friends! I am absolutely loving the versatility and colorability of this month's kit. Go big with scene building, or crisp and clean with a focal element. I've paired simple ink blending for a beachy vibe with a bit of scene building to create something similar to my own little paradise

Recreate this dreamy escape by ink blending Indigo, Aegean and Soft Brown inks on 3 1/4" x 4 1/2" Dove White cardstock. Blend blue to teal and fade to white. Bring the brown up from the bottom, also fading softly to white.

Stamp chosen kit images in Intens-ified Black ink and Copic color. Die cut all images. Adhere images flat to blended panel, tucking and overlapping to build scene.

White Detail heat emboss large sentiment onto blended panel and small sentiment onto Pitch Black cardstock. Adhere completed panel with foam tape to folded card base.

*** 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 3rd, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

Very cute kit. Luckily we live just a block from the ocean, so I can fantasize about moving all that furniture down onto the sand and lounging the day away listening to the ocean and relaxing in hammocks while sipping piña coladas in the shade. Love it!

Looks like some really neat elements in this months kit! Great, cozy scene you created! Love the way you did the background by fading the two inks to the middle – wonderful effect! Thanks for sharing!

This is so cute Janette.. I like the small table & books the best. The scene can be changed up easily with so many elements to choose from. I like to make each card a little bit different.
