October My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #6 + Giveaway

by Ilina Crouse October 06, 2019 206 Comments

We are one sleep away from the release of the October My Monthly Hero Kit! The kit will be available Monday, October 7 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. Now let’s join Ilina, who is sharing the final look at this fabulous kit!

Hi everyone! Ilina here sharing another idea using this month's My Monthly Hero Kit. I had so much fun playing with this kit and creating different scenes. This month is all about Christmas, but we are taking you back in the 50s. 

To make the card I started with two panels of Dove White cardstock measuring 4" x 5 1/4". Using my MISTI I stamped the fire place on both. I die cut it from the first panel and stamped the sentiment underneath the negative die cut using Intens-ified black ink. Also I stamped the tree, clock and presents, colored and die cut. 

Adhere the panel with the sentiment using foam tape over the one with the fire place (that is not die cut). Adhere the rest of the images and adhere the whole panel onto Sand top folding note card

 

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. The winner will be announced first thing Monday morning, October 7th, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. The more you comment, the more chances to win!

Thank you so much for stopping by and hope you have a creative day!
