December My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #3 + Giveaway!
We are back with another look at the December My Monthly Hero release! The kit will be available on Monday, December 4th at 1pm eastern/10am pacific. We'll be sharing ideas for using the main kit and the optional add-on products all weekend long, so stay tuned for more inspiration! Now let's join Michelle, who is sharing another look at the fabulous main kit, available on Monday!
Hello there, what a wonderful kit this month! As soon as I saw the palm tree image in the main stamp set, I knew I wanted to create a sunset with it!
I started off by taking a piece of white cardstock and cutting this using one of the Rectangle Infinity Dies. I then took a piece of mask paper and cut a heart from this using one of the Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies. Taking the negative piece, I added this on top of the cardstock panel and then blended inks inside the heart. I used Dandelion, Tangerine and Strawberry Bold Inks. The mask was removed to reveal the heart shaped sunset.
I took the palm tree from the stamp set, along with the sentiment and stamped these on to the panel using Black Ink. I then took a piece of black cardstock and added the stencil from the kit on top. I ran this through my die cutting machine to create an embossed image. Before removing the stencil, I applied black ink with an ink blending tool over the panel to create some more interest. The piece was added to a white A2 card base and then the image panel added on top with foam tape.
