Our November My Monthly Hero release is here!

As the gift giving season approaches, our fun new November release will help you count down to Christmas! From hand stamped cards, tags and gift wrap, to DIY projects like advent calendars and ornaments, we've got you covered with products to incorporate personal touches into your holiday stamping. This fun, interactive My Monthly Hero kit includes a 4"x6" clear stamp as well as a 4.25"x5.5" cling background stamp with a coordinating flap Fancy Die! Among its many possibilities, the cling stamp can be used to create an advent calendar, with the matching die creating little flaps. The clear stamp set includes numbers to stamp your countdown, plus small messages and icons to include under the flaps. The cling stamp also has a few stamps that can be popped out to use on their own! We've rounded out the kit with two gorgeous embossing powders to give your projects a little extra pop - green-gold and gold.

This month's kit includes:

  • 4" x 6" Clear Stamp Set
  • 4.25" x 5.5" Ornament Flap Fancy Die
  • 4.25" x 5.5" Ornament Background Cling Stamp
  • Green-Gold Embossing Powder 0.5 oz
  • Gold Embossing Powder 0.5 oz

This kit is valued at $60, but is an incredible deal at $34.99. It is available in limited quantities - be sure to get yours before they are gone!

Along with our main November kit, there are several new optional add-on products, perfect for your winter and holiday projects! First up, we have a similar cling stamp with coordinating die: Presents Background cling stamp and Peek-A-Boo Doors Fancy Die. This would be perfect to create a birthday card with all those pretty wrapped gifts!Next, we've got these adorable, cuddly critters, Warm Animals and Warm Animals Frame Cuts. Those sweaters, hats, and scarves are just darling!

The elegant Winter Wreath and Winter Wreath Frame Cuts are perfect for creating gorgeous holiday designs.

Next we have some fun images to color with In For the Holidays and In For the Holidays Frame Cuts! Creative and crafty? Indeed!

 

Our new DIY Ornament Kit, with two star dies, two punch hole dies and a tab die, paper and twine, gives you lots of options for making ornaments and other holiday or year round decor. These make great package toppers!

Inspired by our August release, the new Snow & Froth Technique Kit includes our Lacquer Pen and a 1/2 oz. bottle of Puff Embossing Powder. Combine the two and heat to create puffy white peaks for snow, foam and froth effects.

Love all of these fabulous add-ons? You can Get Them All in a bundle for roughly a 10% savings!

And now let's check out some inspiration from Creative Team member Ilina Crouse, using this month's kit:

For my first project I made a little advent calendar using the die and both the background stamp and the clear stamp set from the kit. I started by die cutting a piece of gold shimmer paper using the die, then stamped the numbers and embossed with the gold embossing powder included in the kit. Next using the MISTI tool I stamped the background stamp on top and embossed with ultra fine embossing powder

Once the top panel was done I added little bows from gold thread on each ornament. 

To create the bottom panel, I used little smaller piece of Snow Layering Paper and secured the die on top and used it as a guide to stamp images in Versamark and embossed them with gold embossing powder. Using foam mounting tape I adhered the panels together, then adhered onto a slightly larger panel 4 1/2" x 5 3/4" of Snow Layering Paper and added a string as a hanger. 

Next up is a card and a tag. To make the card I started by stamping the ornament background stamp onto gold shimmer paper and embossed with gold embossing powder. Next I stamped the tree using the green-gold embossing powder and the sentiment using just gold embossing powder. I added a layer of vellum under the sentiment and assembled the card. 

To make the tag I stamped the background stamp onto gold Shimmer paper, but before stamping I removed the three removable ornaments. Embossed in gold. (tip: the MISTI tool is helpful for this). Put back the removable stamps, and removed the background stamp (after the removable stamps were positioned). Stamped in Versamark and embossed with the green-gold embossing powder. I die cut a tag using the Tag Infinity Dies.

Stamped sentiment onto Snow Layering Paper and embossed with green-gold embossing powder. Trimmed it and layered onto piece of vellum. Assembled the tag.

For even more ideas with this month's release, we've asked our talented Creative Team and crafty friends to help us introduce this kit. Please be sure to visit all of their blogs  and leave a comment at every stop along the way. One reader will be randomly selected to receive a free November kit (or reimbursement if you have already purchased your kit!) Leave your comments on all of these blogs by Sunday, November 11th at 11:59pm Pacific, then look for the winner announcement here on the blog the following week.
