January My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #5 + Giveaway!
We are back with another look at the January My Monthly Hero release! The kit will be available on Monday, January 9th at 1pm eastern/10am pacific. We’ll be sharing ideas for using the main kit and the optional add-on products all weekend long, so stay tuned for more inspiration! Now let’s join Yana, who is sharing a simple Valentine’s Day card with a bold stamped background!
I love to stamp custom backgrounds for my cards and I often use sentiment stamps for this. The “Love You” stamp from the Sealed with a Kiss add-on set is perfect in size to create a background for an A2 card. I used Hero Arts Charcoal ink and stamped “Love You” repeatedly and at an angle to cover the entire front of a card.
To create a focal point for my project I stamped and die-cut a heart from the main kit; I used Bubble Gum and Crimson inks. I wrapped natural twine three times around the card front and tied it into a bow before foam mounting the heart.
I also stamped and die-cut a tiny flower along with several leaves and foam mounted a simple “Sending You Love” sentiment from the Love Notes set. Lastly, I adhered several clear droplets to complete this project.
January My Monthly Hero Kit is perfect for creating Love & Valentine’s Day cards and little notes as well as stunning feminine projects. I see myself using it throughout the year for elegant Birthday and Thank You cards.
