February My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #1 + Giveaway!

Feb 02, 2018 Michelle Short

Hello and welcome as we begin the countdown to the release of the February My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, February 5th at 1pm Eastern/10 am 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, so stay tuned for more inspiration! Now let's join Michelle who is sharing the first look at this wonderful kit.

What a fabulous kit this month! The main kit, along with the optional add-on products are all bird themed and are perfect for so many occasions. I decided to stick with the main stamp set for my projects today.

Spread Your Wings by Michelle Short for Hero Arts

I started off by die cutting a piece of watercolour paper using one of the Nesting Circle Infinity Dies. I cut the bottom off to create a flat edge at the bottom. Using an ink blending tool, I blended Bold Inks over the piece. I used Dandelion, Tangerine and Strawberry. These inks blend beautifully together!

Spread Your Wings by Michelle Short for Hero Arts

I took one of the birds from the main stamp set, along with one of the sentiments and placed these in my Mini MISTI. I lined them up with the ink blended piece and then stamped them using Black Ink. I stamped these twice to get a nice dark impression, so the MISTI comes in very handy for this.

Sending Hugs by Michelle Short for Hero Arts

I did the same thing for my second card. This time I used Soft Pool and Pool Shadow Inks for the ink blending and a different bird and sentiment. I took two white card bases and adhered Decorative Woodgrain Cardstock to the fronts. There is some wonderful woodgrain paper in the kit, so this could be used too. I added the stamped panels on to the card bases with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few clear gems.

The bird images have a distressed look to them (the edges are uneven) but because I wanted to keep my cards clean and simple, I went around the edges of them with a black fine-liner pen. This was very easy to do and shows that you can still use these images in a clean and simple way, if you wanted to.

Sending Hugs by Michelle Short for Hero Arts

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 the countdown posts, and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, February 5th, before the kit launches at 1pm Eastern. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

Good luck!
