June My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #1 + Giveaway!!
Hello and welcome as we begin the countdown to the release of the June My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, June 4th 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. Stay tuned for more inspiration all weekend long! Now let's join Jess for a first look at this fun beach vacation-inspired kit.
Good morning friends! Jess here with the first look at what is easily my most favorite My Monthly Hero kit of all time! I grew up in Virginia Beach and even though I live up in the mountains of the Shenandoah Valley now, I still consider myself a beach girl at heart! So when I saw this month's kit I fell head over heels in love! The kit is PACKED with product and the only thing I used on my card today that's not included in the kit is the white and black embossing powder, the two Copic markers I used, and my card base! ;) See, I told you there's a lot in there!
The kit contains this fabulous layering wave set and several ink cubes that layer together beautifully to create that realistic wave! I started by stamping the three wave layers with Soft Sky, Summer Sky, and Deep Ocean inks onto Snow layering paper. Then I used Post-it notes to mask off the waves. I pressed a Versamark pad all over the bottom of the panel and heat-embossed it with the sand embossing powder that's included in the kit. It has different shapes and colored crystals that create a really interesting texture!
Next I stamped the cute adirondack chairs included in the kit onto Snow layering paper and heat-embossed them with detail white embossing powder. I wanted them to blend into the background so I added Copic dots in two shades of brown to the cardstock. I die-cut them with the coordinating dies and adhered them to the background with foam mounting tape. Then I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock and heat-embossed it with detail black embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a fishtail banner and attached it to the background with foam mounting tape. Finally I trimmed the panel down to 4" by 5.25" and adhered it to a white card base. The perfect scene for a summer vacation!! ;)
