by Hero Arts December 04, 2018 10 Comments

Hi stampers, it’s time for this month’s Awesome Add-ons feature! Before we dive into the project inspiration, here’s a look at all of the add-on products that were introduced yesterday along with the December My Monthly Hero kit -- 2 clear stamp sets with coordinating Frame Cuts, 2 cling background stamps, a Stamp & Cut set, 2 Fancy Dies, 1 Paper Layering Die, and 2 woodblock stamps. So many fun options!

Today we're delighted to have Debi Adams here to share some fabulous “beyond the kit” ideas for a few of the add-ons. Let's get started! First up is this gorgeous card starring our new Fairy Queen.

Instructions:

1. Use a 4 1/2” x 6” piece of ivory cardstock for card base.
2. Cut a piece of gold poster board to 4 1/4” X 5 3/4”.
3. Cut a piece of watercolor/mixed media cardstock to 4 1/8” x 5 1/2”.
4. Use watercolors and a waterbrush on the Star Light Star Bright Bold Prints stamp, then press onto watercolor paper.
5. Stamp and emboss the Dream Wish Do sentiment onto watercolored paper using Versamark and white embossing powder.
6. Stamp and emboss Fairy Queen onto watercolor paper using Versamark and gold embossing powder.
7. Cut out Fairy Queen.
8. Tie a bow from white and gold ribbon. Attach to backside of Fairy Queen using hot glue.
9. Attach Fairy Queen to watercolored paper using foam dots.

We are completely smitten with Debi's next creation, which features sweet silhouettes from the Wish I May Stamp & Cut.

Instructions:

1. Using an A2 Card base (see below), attach patterned paper to front of card.
2. Cut a piece of white cardstock, 3 3/4” x 5”.
3. Die-cut heart from the center of the smaller cardstock piece using Nesting Hearts Infinity Die.
4. Stamp small dandelions randomly across cardstock using Soft Granite ink. (Stamp several times without re-inking to get lighter colors.)
5. Cut a piece of pink cardstock 3 1/2” X 4 3/4”.
6. Using a sponge dauber, brush Bubble Gum ink up from the bottom of the pink cardstock so that it will show at the base of the heart.
7. Attach stamped dandelion print to the top of the pink cardstock using foam dots.
8. Attach dandelion piece to the top of the patterned card base using foam dots.
9. Stamp boy and girl images from Wish I May Stamp & Cut using Intense Black ink and die-cut.
10. Attach images to heart area using foam dots.
11. Stamp sentiment using Intense Black Ink onto a small strip of paper.
12. Wrap card with ribbon, securing to inside of card.
13. Adhere sentiment to top of ribbon.

It is sooooo darn hard to stick to a budget when HA keeps releasing such wonderful goodies! My goodness these add ons are so sweet and super-duper great! I really like the faeries and the kids staring up into space and making wishes. How fun. Debi’s fairy queen card is spectacular! Thanks so much for sharing her creativity and now I go to crunch some numbers!

This month’s add-ons are all so awesome. I usually like anywhere from 1-4 of them but this month I’d love them all, lol. Love your cards. That first fairy one is so stunning and captivating!! So beautiful too. That ribbon behind her is perfect with her dress and just adds to the feeling of the dress flowing as she moves. The colours in the background with the colours in her dress along with the star confetti makes for a most whimsical and magical combination!! The second card is so sweet with the little boy and girl making dandelion wishes. Love it too!
