September My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #5 + Giveaway!
We are back with another look at the September My Monthly Hero release! The kit will be available on Tuesday, September 5th at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific. We'll be sharing ideas for using the main kit and the optional add-on products all weekend long, so stay tuned for more inspiration! Now let's join Michelle, who is sharing another look at the fabulous main kit, available on Tuesday!
Hello there, what a fabulous kit this month! I absolutely love the autumnal feel to it. The stamp set is filled with wonderful images but I decided to use the pumpkins for my card today. I love that you can create them using a number of different colour combinations for lots of different looks.
I started off by stamping the pumpkins using various shades of yellow ink. For the smaller ones I used Butter Bar, Orange Soda and Pumpkin Pie. The larger one uses Butter Bar, Pumpkin Pie and Cup O' Joe. These were then fussy cut out with scissors. I cut one of the tags from the Tag Infinity Dies set and blended over Stormy Sky Distress ink. I then splattered over some water for a little interest. The sentiment was stamped in the top right with Intense Black Ink. The pumpkins were added to the tag with foam tape.
I took a piece of the Moonrock Cardstock from the kit (this has a lovely rustic look to it) and ran this through my die cutting machine with the Delicate Petals Stencil. This embossed the piece and gave some interest to it. I added this to a white A2 card base and then added the tag on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added natural twine through the top of the tag. I also added two sequins from the Champagne Mix and one pearl.
