December My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #6 + Giveaway!

by Amy Tsuruta December 03, 2017 143 Comments

Hello again! We've come to the end of our countdown, leading up to the launch of the December My Monthly Hero kit tomorrow, Monday, December 4th at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Remember to comment on each and every post as we'll be giving away a kit on Monday morning, before the release! Now join Amy as she shares a few more ideas for combining this month's optional add-on products with the main kit...

I had so much fun combining the December kit with some of the optional add-on products!

This card has a ton of stuff going on so let's start with the bottom panel and work our way up.  I stamped the palm tree from the Main kit in Intense Black and created a galaxy background.

Working with a panel from the Earth Mix Layering Paper pack, I stamped the optional add-on Filigree Pattern Bold Print in Pumpkin Pie Mid-Tone Shadow Ink.  I cut out the Fancy Window Die from this month's kit and inked it up with the Pumpkin Pie Mid-Tone Shadow Ink.  

I stamped the optional add-on Henna Flower Pattern with Pumpkin Pie Mid-Tone Shadow Ink topping it off with a sentiment from this month's kit that has been stamped with Intense Black.  It has been cut with a Circle Infinity Die and clipped onto the card with a clothespin.

Win a kit before you can buy it! Just leave a comment on this (and every) Countdown to Creativity post! We'll randomly draw one lucky winner from all of the comments left across all countdown posts and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, November 6th, before the kit launches at 1pm Eastern. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

Thanks so much for visiting! One more sleep until release, yay!

That fancy window die is so unique! I’ve not seen
many Morroccan themed stamps & never dies… what fun it will be to send Morroccan cards to my family (we vacationed in Morrocco a couple years ago.)
