December My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #1 + Giveaway!
Hello and welcome as we begin the countdown to the release of the December My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, December 3rd at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We will be here for the next three days, sharing ideas for using both the main kit, as well as the new optional add-on products that will also be available on Monday. Stay tuned for more inspiration all weekend long! Now let's join Janette for the first look at this enchanted kit!
All your fairy wishes have come true within the December My Monthly Hero Kit! This month's kit includes darling fairies, critters and botanical elements. I'm featuring just a few for you today!
Tip: when die cutting elements with thin areas like the stem of dandelions, place the die cut side up and the stamp face down so that they nest. Then pick up the stamp with an acrylic block or MISTI lid. This will ensure quick and easy accurate die cuts.
Stretch your Stamps: Take advantage of stamps that can have their shape manipulated to bend beyond their design to make an arch or wreath. Look outside the obvious uses for a stamp. A fairy could be laying down, sitting up blowing a seed, or even whispering into the wind or to a fairy friend.
After die cutting a circle into the blended panel, I stamped the sentiment in Intense Black. I adhered the inner circle flat to the card base and popped the rectangle frame for dimension. I then die cut each kit element and arranged them in and around the circle.
