March My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #3 + Giveaway

by Channin Pelletier February 29, 2020 302 Comments

Hello and welcome back to the countdown to the release of the March My Monthly Hero kit! Release day is Monday, March 2 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Now let's join Channin for another fabulous sneak peek!

Hello friends! It's Channin here with a new card idea featuring the March 2020 My Monthly Hero Kit. 

I love designing cards with every one of the HeroScape sets! I enjoy experimenting with color combos and I find stamping the depth and dimension of the scene so satisfying and rewarding! So when I saw that Hero added to the HeroScape line with this My Monthly Hero kit I jumped for joy!!

For this card, I started with the landscape, stamping the first layer in Key Lime Fizz Reactive Ink. I then stamped the second layer in Green Apple Reactive Ink. Next, I felt like my colors were too bright so I then stamped the first layer again but this time in Fog Reactive Ink to dull the colors. I then die cut my landscape out using the matching die and trimmed off any remaining portion of white with a paper trimmer.

Next, I stamped a rock garden and the lanterns in Soft Granite. I stamped first layer of all these images in Soft Granite Shadow Ink twice. I then stamped the second layers in Soft Granite again, but this time 4-5 times to make the second layers much darker. I die cut the lanterns out with the matching dies and fussy cut the rock garden out. 

Next, I stamped the first layer of the tree in Moss Bold Ink. I then stamped the second layer of the tree in Emerald Green Shadow Ink. For the trunk, I first stamped it in Caramel Bold Ink. I then partially inked the trunk in Cup O' Joe Shadow Ink to add depth and texture. Next, I die cut the trunk and the tree top out with the matching dies. 

I then cut a small panel out of Dove White Cardstock measuring 4 1/4" x 3 1/8" and ink blended it with Splash Reactive Ink. I then adhered all my stamped and die cut images to the panel with precision glue and stamped a sentiment in Intens-ified Black Ink at the upper left. 

Next, I cut another small panel out of Dove White measuring 4 3/8" x 3 1/4" and adhered my scene on top. I finished the card by adhering the scene onto a A2 card base made from Adriatic Cardstock

I hope you enjoyed my card! Thank you so much for stopping by!

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. The winner will be announced first thing Monday morning, March 2, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

It looks like this kit will be very versatile, given the different effects achieved by changing up the foliage colors; that
invites us to play and experiment. Terrific!
