SEPTEMBER KIT HAS ARRIVED!

March My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #2 + Giveaway

by Michelle Short March 02, 2018 440 Comments

Hello and welcome back to the countdown to the release of the March My Monthly Hero kit! Release day is Monday, March 5th at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We'll be here for the next few days, sharing ideas for using the main kit, as well as new optional add-on products that will also be available on Monday. Remember to comment on each and every post as we'll be giving away a kit on Monday morning, before the kit launches! Here is Michelle, with another look at the main kit.

Hello everyone! We have another fabulous kit this month! I fell in love with the word dies as soon as I saw them! I started off my card by die cutting a heart from mask paper for my focal point. I used a middle size heart from the Nesting Hearts Infinity Dies set. The mask was then placed over an A2 white card base.

Hugs by Michelle Short for Hero Arts

Using Distress Oxide ink, I blended over the colours with the darkest at the bottom. With the mask still in place, I took the flower stamp from the stamp set and inked this up with the Unicorn White Ink Cube that comes in the kit and stamped this repeatedly over the heart. I then removed the mask and set aside to dry.

I took the hugs die from the kit and die cut this from the white cardstock in the kit, three times and layered these up with liquid glue. On the top layer, I spritzed over the new White Iridescent Shimmer Spray, which will be available as an add-on to the kit, on Monday. The die cut was then added to the card with more liquid glue.

Win a kit before you can buy it! Just leave a comment on this (and every) Countdown to Creativity post! We’ll randomly draw one lucky winner from all the comments left across all countdown posts, and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, March 5, before the kit launches at 1 pm Eastern. The more you comment, the more chances to win!                  

Good luck!
