October My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #4 and Giveaway!
We are back with another look at the October My Monthly Hero release! The kit will be available on Monday, October 2nd at 1pm Eastern/10 am Pacific. We’ll be sharing ideas for using the main kit and optional add-on products all weekend long, so stay tuned for more project inspiration! Now let’s join Ilina, who is sharing another look at this fabulous kit.
I love Christmas and Christmas crafting! The October My Monthly Hero kit has so much potential and there are so many possibilities for this kit. I love coloring and building scenes, so that's what I did for my card today. I stamped the images onto Snow Layering paper using Intense Black ink, colored them with Chameleon pens and die cut them using the coordinating dies (note: the elves were hand cut ;)) Onto a separate panel of Snow Layering paper I stamped the mountains and colored them with Chameleon pens, then masked them off and blended Soft Pool shadow ink to create the sky.
To create the window I used a Woodgrain card stock piece trimmed down to 4" x 5 1/4" and die cut a circle using the Circle Infinity Dies. I stamped the sentiment onto a 1/2" x 5 1/4" strip of Blush layering paper using Versamark ink and embossed with White embossing powder.
To create the snow on the mountain and the house, I used the thick lacquer that comes in the kit and applied it carefully to the areas where I wanted snow to "appear". Then, I gently sprinkled some Silver embossing powder and gently heat set it (tip: don't overheat it as the thick lacquer will start to bubble). I adhered the window frame and the Snow panel together using mounting tape. I adhered all the elements, the sentiment and few Poinsettia sequins. Then adhered onto a Blush note card.
