October My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #5 and Giveaway!

by Clare Prezzia October 01, 2017 377 Comments

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 Clare, who is sharing another look at this fabulous kit.

The new kit has so many possibilities, between the stamps and the dies, that it may seem overwhelming. As many places as this kit can take you, today I decided to go the one-layer route.

I stamped all the images in Black, except for the tracks, which were stamped in Soft Granite. Coloring was kept simple, as I only used three colors – light gray, dark gray and red.

 

Finally, I added some Clear Stickles for finishing last detail, and that finishes off the card!

 

I made several cards with the kit, but this was the first, as I had to take it slow and easy to keep myself from getting overwhelmed by all the possibilities. 

Win a kit before you can buy it! Just leave a comment on this (and every) Countdown to Creativity post! We'll randomly draw one lucky winner from all of the comments left across all countdown posts and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, October 2nd, before the kit launches at 1pm Eastern. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

Hope you have as much fun with this kit as I did!

God bless!

This IS a cute, adorable kit. The train at the train station card reminds me of the train trip from Shinjuku-ku to Tokyo Train Station to see the Imperial Palace in Japan. Love the sentiment fonts. Love to have this kit in my arsenal.
