Awesome Add-ons: September 2022 Ideas + Video
Hello friends! Have you had a chance to take a peek at the new add-ons introduced on Tuesday along with our September My Monthly Hero Kit? From leaves and flowers to flourishes and thankful greetings, you’ll find stamps, dies, stencils, and hot foil plates to keep you inspired all season long!
Today we're delighted to have Creative Team members Jayne and Mindy here to share some fabulous "beyond the kit" ideas for a few of the add-ons.
Jayne: For my card, I’m featuring the beautiful, new Fall Leaves Cover Plate paired with some die-cut leaves made with the versatile Foliage & Flowers Fancy Die set. I started by blending four, fall colors from the Sunshine and Nature Palette Reactive Ink sets onto a panel of Dove White cardstock. I splattered the inked panel with water and then die-cut it with the Fall Leaves Cover Plate to create a colorful, leafy background. Before securing the panel to a Woodland card base, I gently pushed a few of the die-cut leaves from the back to create some dimension on the front.
Then, I inked three scraps of white cardstock with the Root Beer, Green Apple and Fruit Punch Reactive Ink cubes. I used the Foliage & Flowers Fancy Die to cut three, identical leaves that I secured to the center of the card with foam tape. I also added a simple sentiment from the Koi Bunch set that I embossed with White Embossing Powder. To finish the card, I added three white enamel dots.
Mindy: Make your foiling center stage with the Fall Leaves Hot Foil Plate. You can ink blend before or after your foiling to create a gradient of color down the front of your card. If the foiling is too much for you, die-cut out a shape from the center of the card. This is a great place to also add your sentiment.
