October My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #2 + Giveaway!
We are back with another idea for using our October My Monthly Hero kit, leading up to the release on Monday, October 2nd at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We'll be sharing inspiration for using the main kit and the optional add-on products all weekend. In this post, Jayne uses stamps and dies from the monthly kit to create a fun and colorful Christmas card.
If you love delightful winter images, perfect for coloring, I think that you will adore the October My Monthly Hero Kit! The kit includes a large stamp set with varied holiday images that are perfect for creating irresistible winter scenes. To make creating your scenes even easier, the kit also comes with a die set!
To create a snow globe, I used a circle die to cut a blue cardstock circle that I embossed with snowflake stamps from the kit. Next, using the same die, I cut a circle from the white, textured paper included in the kit. After cutting a wavy line across the circle, I secured a piece along the lower edge of the blue globe to resemble snow. Then, I trimmed the lower part of the circle to create a straight edge. To create a base, I cut a strip of green cardstock, embossed it with holly images, and then used a small circle die to trim away the upper corners.
To create the scene, I stamped a few of the cute images from this month's kit onto white cardstock with Intense Black ink. I colored the images with colored pencils and then used the coordinating dies to cut out each image. I also added two more embossed sentiment strips. I finished the card with a few green sequins and a twine bow.
