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

by Michelle Short December 02, 2018 141 Comments

Hello and welcome as we continue the countdown to the release of the December My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is tomorrow, Monday, December 3rd at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We hope you have enjoyed the inspiration so far! Now let's join Michelle for the last look at this wonderful kit, before the release tomorrow.

This is such a beautiful kit! Fairies seem to work all year round for so many different occasions and there are lots of different ones in the main stamp set in the kit. 

Fairy Wishes by Michelle Short for Hero Arts

For my card, I started off by stamping the fairy that looks like she is flying, as well the the flower image, on to white cardstock with Intense Black Ink. The images were coloured with Copic Markers and then die cut out with the coodinating frame cuts.

Fairy Wishes by Michelle Short for Hero Arts

I took a panel of white cardstock and blended Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink over the bottom half to represent a sky. I stamped the sentiment towards the top of the panel. This was added to a white A2 card base with foam tape and then the images added on top with more foam tape. To finish off, I added a dot of Stardust Pen, which comes in the kit, to her wand. I also added shimmer pen to her dress and wings. 

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 the comments left across all countdown posts, and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, December 3rd, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

As you can see, a very simple card but I hope it will put a smile on someone's face! Have a great day!

Oh Michelle your beautiful card definitely put a smile on my face today! I love that everything we’ve seen so far are designs that can be used anytime of year and for any occasion, so much versatility with this kit. I think this Fairy in flight with her fairy dust wand is my favorite. Thank you for sharing your sneak peek and for the inspiration, I am looking forward to a year of cards with this kit!
