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!

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.
