July My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #1 + Giveaway!
Hello and welcome as we begin the countdown to the release of the July My Monthly Hero kit! Release day is Monday, July 3rd at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We’ll be here for the next three days, sharing ideas for using both the main kit, as well as the optional add-on products that will be available on Monday. Don’t forget to comment on each and every post as we’ll be giving away a kit Monday morning, before the kit launches. Now let’s join Michelle who is sharing the first look at this fantastic kit!
Hello there, I am delighted to be sharing a card I have made using the main kit, along with the Little Florals Stamp set which is an optional add-on. There are two 4″ x 6″ stamp sets in the kit. One has a selection of florals in it and the other, lots of different containers to hold the flowers in.
For my card, I started off by taking the bow image from one of the main stamp sets in the kit. I stamped this on to a piece of white cardstock using Intense Black Ink and then again on to mask paper.
The mask was cut out and placed on to the stamped image. I then stamped the floral bouquet over it so it looks like the ribbon is wrapped around the flower stems. I took the mask off of the ribbon and coloured the image using Copic Markers. I then fussy cut it out using scissors.
Next, I took a piece of white cardstock and stamped the sentiment, from the Little Florals set, on to it using Intense Black Ink. I then embossed this piece in my die cutting machine using the Delicate Petals Stencil. This gives a nice subtle look but adds some interest to the background. This panel was added to a 4″ x 5.25″ white card base.
I added the bouquet of flowers next to the sentiment using foam tape. To finish off the card, I added a small purple gem to the middle of the bow. I then created a matching envelope for my card. I took a Floral Mix Envelope and added anti-static powder to the flap. I then stamped the same bouquet of flowers but this time using Versamark Ink. I applied White Embossing Powder and then heat set.
