May My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #6 + Giveaway

by Nichol Spohr May 05, 2019 232 Comments

It's time for our final countdown peek before the release of the May My Monthly Hero kit! The kit will be available tomorrow, Monday, May 6 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Now let’s join Nichol, who is sharing another look at this fun kit!

Hello friends! Today I'm sharing a crafting happiness card inspired by a couple of quilting/sewing projects I've made multiple times. I adore the look of rainbow colored pencils so I stamped, colored, and die cut many, many colored pencils using an image from the May main kit and created a double border along the bottom of my card!

The background of the card was stamped on a white card background with the add-on Crafting Tools Bold Prints using Soft Granite Ink. Sentiments from the main kit were stamped along the top half of the card using Black Ink.

The colored pencil image from the main kit was stamped 40 times on Bristol Smooth cardstock, colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, die cut, layered, and adhered along the bottom edge of the background with foam adhesive. The foam adhesive give the border a bit of dimension from the busy background.

Hearts from the main kit were stamped on Bristol Smooth cardstock, colored in with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, die cut and adhered above the sentiment as shown. The hearts were finished with Crystal Lacquer for a bit of glossy shine!

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, May 6, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

This card reminds me of the three sets of colored pencils and watercolor pencils I recently bought. It is great to think that I can show my own crafts on the cards I make. Monday can’t come soon enough.
