March My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #3 and Giveaway!

by Ilina Crouse March 03, 2018 422 Comments

We're back for another countdown post, leading up 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 all weekend long, 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 comment on each and every post as we’ll be giving away a kit on Monday morning, before the kit launches! Here’s Ilina with another card using the kit...

Hi everyone, I hope you are enjoying the Countdown posts so far. I love this month's kit because it's full with sentiments and word dies. I personally love the size of the word dies, as well as the font! My favorite is the "Hugs" one, so I had to use it on my card. I started by die cutting it from Snow layering paper and did it three times. I inked the first one with Versamark and used the sparkle silver embossing powder that comes in the kit to emboss it. I repeated this process 4 times, so I could get little bit more raised and dimensional look. Next, I adhered the other 2 die cuts on the bottom of the embossed one, to get even more raised sentiment. I set an acrylic block on top and let the adhesive dry while I was working on the rest of the card.  

I die cut Bold Graphic confetti die (this die is one of the March add-ons) from Pool layering paper and trimmed it down to 3 3/4" x 5"and sprayed with White iridescent shimmer spray (another add-on for March) and set it aside to dry. Next, I die cut a circle using the Circle Infinity Dies from dark gray layering paper (Midnight mix) and a matching one from vellum. I stamped with Versamark and embossed with White Detail embossing powder (again one of the add-ons for this month) on the vellum circle. I adhered both circles together and adhered the "hugs" die cut. 

I assembled my panel and adhered it to a dark gray note card (Midnight mix) and adhered some sparkling sequins that come in the kit to finish my card.

I hope you have been enjoying the sneak peeks so far, and don't forget to come back later today for another countdown post! 

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 the countdown posts, and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, March 5th, before the kit launches at 1pm Eastern. The more you comment, the more chances to win!
