December My Monthly Hero Countdown: Idea #1 + Giveaway!

MMH Countdown to Creativity

Welcome to our December Countdown to Creativity, leading up to the release of the latest My Monthly Hero kit on Monday, December 5th at 1pm eastern/10am pacific! We’ll be here for the next three days, sharing ideas for using both the main kit, as well as several other new products we’ll be launching on Monday. This month’s kit is one for celebrating! Yana is here for the first look at this fun kit…

Shall we have a fabulous New Year’s Eve party? The December My Monthly Hero kit from Hero Arts is perfect for creating unique party invitations or party-themed cards.

I started working on my project by heat embossing Garland Bold Prints background stamp in white embossing powder onto light blue cardstock. To give my paper an ombre look I blended Aquatic ink at the top of my panel forcing the top to appear darker and bottom lighter.

For the focal point I die cut “Party” out of gold metallic cardstock from the kit and white self adhesive fun foam. I used latter to adhere the gold die cut onto the project and to give it some dimension.

I also heat embossed “sparkles” in gold embossing powder, stamped a mask in Intense Black ink, colored it using Copic markers and cut all images out using coordinating dies.

To complete this card I heat embossed additional sentiments that read “Please Join Us” and “Lets Party” in gold embossing powder onto same light blue cardstock, trimmed into strips and foam mounted onto the project.

The December My Monthly Kit is full of possibilities and works great for creating party invitations, birthday cards, fun cards with drinks, etc.

Have fun stamping!
