July My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #6 + Giveaway

by Channin Pelletier July 12, 2020 141 Comments

Hello and welcome back! This is the last peek at the July My Monthly Hero Kit before tomorrow's release at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We estimate July kits and add-ons will begin shipping on Friday, July 17. Channin is here to share the final glimpse before the full reveal on Monday!

Hello friends! It's Channin here with a new card idea featuring the July 2020 My Monthly Hero Kit. This kit is absolutely magical!! I loved building my underwater scene with the beautiful layering stamp set and the intricate scenery die!  

To create this card I first stamped the forefront scene with the stamp set and a MISTI. I started with the most solid stamp, partially inked it and stamped it in several ink colors. I began with Thistle Reactive ink, held the ink pad at an angle and inked up just the top portion of the stamp and then stamped it. Next, I inked up the bottom portion with Grape Slush, stamped, and then the very bottom with Blue Hawaii.

I then positioned the second layer, picked it up with my MISTI and selectively and partially inked the slopes with Splash, Blue Hawaii, and even a little Intens-ified Black Ink at the bottom. Next, I inked up just the coral and plants in either Pool Party or Taffy. I then positioned the third layer and inked it up with combination of either Creamsicle + Fruit Punch or Fruit Punch + Berry Smoothie.

Next, I die cut the landscape out with the matching dies and then die cut a second panel with the second landscape die. I ink blended the second scene with Grape Slush, Blue Hawaii, and Intens-ified Black Ink. Next, I stamped the mermaid and dolphins in Intens-ified Black Ink and die cut them out with the matching dies. I then ink blended the front of an A2 top-folding card base with Blue Hawaii, Splash, and Pool Party. Next, I adhered all my layers and die cuts to the card front and then finished the card by stamping the sentiment in Intens-ified Black Ink.

I hope you enjoyed my card! And be sure to stop by tomorrow to see the whole release!!
