Hello all! Today I’m participating in the August My Monthly Hero release blog hop! This month’s kit is so unique and definitely one of my favorites!
For my card today, I used the stamps from both the main kit and the add on, as well as dies from the main kit and add-on.
To start the card of, I blended a background of Squeezed Lemonade, Scattered Straw, Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire to create a moonlit scene for my pixies. Then, like I did for my countdown card post, I inked up my pixies and sentiment (from the add-on, Dreams Are Made) in Versamark for stickiness, then Black ink, and stamped. The Versamark allowed me to cover the images and sentiment with clear Sparkle Embossing Powder and get a really lovely look.
Believe it or not, that’s the most complicated part of this card – the dies make the rest a breeze!
I die cut black, navy, and teal-ish blue cardstock in the main and add-on dies, and then covered them with Versamark ink. Then I added more of that gorgeous Sparkle Embossing powder, heat embossed them, and layered them to create my scene!
You could add lots of dimension in between the layers like I did here with foam tape, or, for a more mail-friendly card, just use thin pieces of chipboard, or just adhere them directly on top of each other! Either way, these dies make the cool paper-cutting look super easy!
Here’s a video of how I made the card…
This month’s kit was inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and features a gorgeous forest fairy theme. There are add-on stamps with Shakespeare quotes. The kit is jam-packed with goodies, with a value over $50, but selling for $34.99!
Here’s what the kit looks like (more details over on the Hero Arts blog)
Remember, the kit is available for a limited time only – once it’s gone, it’s gone.
