October My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #6 + Giveaway!
Hello and welcome! We’re back with our second post for the day, sharing more inspiration for using our October My Monthly Hero kit! And remember to comment on each and every post – we’ll be giving away a kit on Monday morning, before the kit launches at 1pm eastern/10am pacific on Monday, October 3! Now join Clare as she shares a glittery winter scene using stamps from this gorgeous kit and an add-on die!
I have to admit, when I first got my box containing the new kit, I was utterly overwhelmed by how much fun was packed into one kit! One of the first items I was drawn to, however, was the new Star Confetti Fancy Die add-on – I immediately began cutting sheets and sheets of paper with this panel, intrigued by all the different combinations I could get simply by switching the foreground and background papers.
However, I decided to keep it simple and elegant for today’s card. I die cut the background from vellum, and adhered it onto a panel of glittery white cardstock – you could always make your own white glittery cardstock by embossing an entire panel with the gorgeous Sparkle embossing powder.
For the focal point, I stamped and heat embossed in white some various little images from the stamp set. I did some partial die cutting to get a perfectly circular bottom using the Circle Infinity dies, and then handcut around the images (though they have coordinating dies ;))
I adhered the embossed circle to a slightly larger vellum circle, and adhered those to the base. Sweet and simple!
The starry background die is so versatile, and there’s another full-cover background add-on die that I can’t wait to play with – the Circle Confetti Fancy Die. What do you think of this new background die?
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 the comments left across all countdown posts, and announce the winner first thing Monday morning, October 3, before the kit launches at 1 pm eastern.
