June My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #4 + Giveaway!
We are back for another countdown post, leading up to the release of the June My Monthly Hero kit!. Release day is Monday, June 4th at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. We'll be sharing ideas for using both the main kit, as well as new optional add-on products that will be available on Monday. And don't forget to leave a comment on this and every post as we will be giving away a kit on Monday. Now let's join Clare, who's sharing a CAS card using the kit...
One of things I love about this kit is how it works so well for making clean and simple cards, or more elaborate scenes. For today's card, I kept things pretty simple, keeping the focus on the stamps and the beautiful embossing powder that's part of the kit.
To start out with, I stamped the three layers of water on the top of cardstock panel, using the colors included in the kit - Deep Ocean, Summer Sky and Soft Sky. I then used a Versamark pen to add some stickiness right below the waves, and then covered it with the amazing embossing powder included in the kit. I love how realistic the sand looks, and how it even has a bit of metallic shine!
I inked the sentiment up first with Versamark, and then Soft Brown, and heat embossed it with some mores sand EP. I then die cut the panel with the Rectangle Infinity Dies, and, for another pop of color on the card, I stamped two chairs in Crimson ink, die cut them and adhered them to the panel. The panel was popped onto a card base with some dimensional adhesive and then tied off with some red twine.
