December My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #3 + Giveaway!

Nov 26, 2018 Jessica Frost-Ballas

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 Jess for another look at this magical kit!

As you've probably learned I am a sucker for cute furry critters and I fell hard for the adorable mouse in the kit! I combined him with some liquid watercolors and sparkles to create this dreamy card!

To start I stamped the mouse, dandelion seeds, and daisy onto watercolor paper with Versafine and heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder. Then I watercolored the images with liquid watercolors before die-cutting them with the coordinating dies included in the kit.  I used pink, white, and black for the mouse; dandelion, mulled wine, and purple for the flower; and dandelion and leaf for the dandelion puff. I stamped the sentiment from the kit onto black cardstock with Versamark, heat-embossed it with white embossing powder, and trimmed it down to a thin label.

Next I stamped the dandelions onto the shimmery pink cardstock included in the kit with Versamark and heat-embossed them with black sparkle embossing powder (I told you I was going for lots of sparkle)! I trimmed the pink cardstock down and adhered it to a black card base and added the sentiment. Then I used foam mounting tape to adhere my daisy and mouse and regular adhesive for the dandelion seeds. Finally I added bits of clear lacquer to the dandelions and daisy and sprinkled it with snowfall glitter for even more sparkle!

I hope this sneak has gotten you excited for the big reveal on Monday! Make sure to come back all weekend for more sneak peeks. Thanks so much for stopping by!
