November 2020 My Monthly Hero is Here + Giveaway!
Welcome to a winter wonderland!
Inspired by beautiful linocut art, the November kit is wonderful for your holiday crafting, and beyond! The unique style will keep you stamping all winter long. The kit also introduces a fun new idea for stamping - masking dies! Easily layer your stamped images with the masking dies included in this month's kit. These dies work on their own, or work with stamped images to give you a tight cut out, leaving little extra space around the design. To stamp a background behind the house, bird, owl, tree or snowman, simply stamp that foreground image, die cut a mask, cover the foreground image with the mask and stamp your background on top of it. To round out the kit we've include a beautiful new Reactive ombré ink pad, a sequin mix and washi tape.
This month’s kit includes:
• 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
• 5 Coordinating Frame Cuts
• 6 Coordinating Masking Cuts
• Winter Sky Reactive Ombré Ink Pad
• Red Vine Washi Tape
• Winter Forest Sequins
To help illustrate the masking dies included in the kit, Mindy has put together a helpful video illustrating both how to mask, and also an easy way to get die cut images with the masking dies. Using a MISTI tool makes her techniques easier, but you can certainly mask with an acrylic block as well. Mindy uses Gina K Designs Masking Magic in her video, but experiment with any masking material you may have. Post-it notes work well, too!
