Hello and welcome as we begin the countdown to the release of the November My Monthly Hero kit! Release day is Monday, November 6th at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We'll be here all weekend, sharing ideas for using both the main kit, as well as new optional add-on products that will also be available on Monday. And, remember to comment on each and every post as we'll be giving away a kit on Monday morning, before the kit launches! Now join Jess as she shares a project using some of the add-on items...
Hi, Jess here! I love the November kit but I was really drawn to one of the add-on items and decided to focus on it today! As someone who celebrates Jewish holidays, I always struggle to find a good Hanukkah set amidst all the fabulous Christmas sets so I was ridiculously excited to see some of the add-on items this month! ;)
This add-on set has beautiful images for the festival of lights or for general winter holiday cards! I'll be sharing another card during the hop using the same set but without a Hanukkah theme to show its versatility! To start I stamped the menorah with Versamark and heat-embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder. Then I die-cut it with the coordinating die before coloring the flames with Copic markers. Next I added a thick layer of Spectrum Noir clear sparkle to the menorah and then added a layer of Nuvo crystal glaze. I set that aside to dry while I worked on the background.
I wanted to keep my card fairly clean and simple but decided to add a little interest to the card base with the help of one of the add-on stencils. I placed the stencil over a piece of white cardstock and ran it through my Big Shot using the embossing pad instead of a cutting pad. This resulted in a dry embossed pattern across the entire panel. Next I stamped the sentiment with Versamark on dark navy blue cardstock and heat-embossed it with Silver Embossing Powder. I also added a layer of Spectrum Noir clear sparkle over the entire sentiment. I adhered the menorah and the sentiment to the embossed card base with foam mounting tape and finished the card with a sprinkling of Frost sequins!
