Awesome Add-ons: February 2024 Ideas + Video

Feb 07, 2024 Hero Arts

Hi friends! We’re back with our Awesome Add-ons feature for this month. Here’s a peek at all of the add-on products that were introduced along with the February kits on Monday – clear stamp sets and coordinating dies, Fancy Dies, Bold Prints, and a stencil. You'll have lots of creative options for pairing these goodies with the kits or using them separately!

Today we're delighted to have Kelly Rasmussen here to share some fabulous "beyond the kit" ideas for a few of the add-ons. Take it away, Kelly...

Our recent Mixed Media Stamp-Along event was the inspiration behind this first card. It was so fun to build a unique backgound full of textures and patterns using products from this release.

I started by white heat embossing the Words of Peace Bold Prints stamp on Luxe White Watercolor cardstock. Then I used Creamsicle and Lemon Drop Reactive Inks to loosely paint a pastel backgound. Next I stenciled some flowers with the Peace Daisy Stencil and Taffy Reactive Ink.

The message is from the Sending Peace 3x4 clear stamp set, which is an awesome message set for sending cards of encouragement.

The beautiful gold leaves are from the Dove and Olive Branch Fancy Die set. I covered them in Gold Hero Wax and also added some gold splatters to the background to tie it all together.

This next card features the fun Groovy Window Fancy Die. There are so many ways you can use this die, but I chose to show it with the die-cut inlay technique. I die-cut the image from Dove White, Paradise, Amethyst, and Periwinkle cardstock. Then I used the colored pieces of cardstock and placed them in the white die-cut frame. It like putting a puzzle together! 

This window die is a perfect frame for the messages in the Peace & Love stamp set. These beautiful, detailed messages steal the show and can be the main focus of any card you put them on.

For a full walkthrough of this month's add-ons, check out the video below. It's also available to view on YouTube.
