Hello and welcome as we begin the countdown to the release of the October My Monthly Hero Kit! Release day is Monday, October 7 at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We will be here all weekend long, sharing inspiration before the launch on Monday. Now let's join Emily for the first look at this retro-inspired holiday kit!
Hi there! Emily Midgett here with you today sharing some inspiration using this month's fantastic My Monthly Hero kit! This kit is chock full of vintage, 1950's inspired images, including the fabulous hearth image, record player, and mod Christmas trees. I've created a little scene using these great scene-building images, so let's get started with the details!
To start, I stamped the hearth and record player on an A2 panel of white cardstock using Intens-ified Black Ink. I colored the images using Copic markers, then added some color to the blank areas on the "walls" using Aegean ink and a blending brush.
Next, I stamped several of the accessories on a separate panel of white cardstock, again using Intens-ified Black Ink, adding color with Copic markers in a vintage-y aqua, red, and white color scheme, then used the coordinating Frame Cuts included in the My Monthly Hero kit to die cut the images.
I added the die cut accessories to the card front using foam adhesive for some extra dimension. I stamped the greeting from the My Monthly Hero kit on a strip of white cardstock and added it to the card front using foam adhesive.
Well, that's all for me today! Now, for some fun giveaway information!
