Hello everyone!! I’m so so excited to be joining Hero Arts November My Monthly Hero Blog Hop!! Aahh!! This is truly a dream come true!!
This is such an incredible release, so many awesome products perfect for you holiday cards and gift giving!! I have several cards to share so let’s dive right in!!
First up is card I created using the November monthly kit!! I first die cut the front panel from an A2 panel of 110lb white cardstock using Doorway Fancy Die included in the kit. I then used the die again with red and green colored cardstock to create a green garland, a red door and bows. I then adhered these elements to my front panel. Next, I die cut a wreath from green and red cardstock, ink blended the wreath Pine Needles Distress Ink and then adhered it and the bow onto the door.
Next, I gold heat embossed a door nob and lanterns that I cut with Doorway Fancy Die out of white cardstock. I then stamped the mat, copic colored it, and then die cut it with the matching die. Next I took my panel and traced the door opening onto the card front. I then cut the doorway out with a craft knife. I then ink blended Tumbled Glass Distress ink on the card front and then adhered my front panel on top.
Next, I stamped several images, copic colored them, and then die cut most of the images out with the matching dies. I used the Staircase Fancy Die to cut out the stairs and I fussy cut the dog and the rug.
I then ink blended the background with Tumbled Glass and Weathered Wood Distress Ink and then stamped a sentiment. I then finished the card by adhering all my images to the inside of the card.
Next up is the Mountains of Joy Stamp Set! I decided to do some no-line coloring with this fun set!
I first stamped the mountain of presents twice in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto an A2 panel of Bristol paper. I then watercolored all the present in with Tombow Dual Brush pens.
Once I had all the presents colored in I then stamped my sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black Ink. I then finished the card by simply adhering the panel onto an A2 top-folding card base.
Next up is the gorgeous Decorated Winter Branches Window Fancy Die! I couldn’t resist making a shaker card with this beautiful die!
First, I die cut an A2 panel of white cardstock with the Decorated Winter Branches Window Fancy Die. Next, I cut the lowest garland off. I then adhered the window onto an A2 panel of acetate. Next, I stamped my sentiment onto the acetate with Stazon. I then adhered the trimmed garland back to the panel.
Next, I ink blended the front of an A2 top-folding card with Distress Inks (Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Chipped Sapphire). I then die cut an A2 panel of white craft foam with the oval die from the Decorated Winter Branches Window Fancy Die set. I then adhered the craft foam oval frame onto the card base to create the well. Next, I filled the well with sequins and snowflake confetti. I then finished the card by adhering the acetate panel on top.
Last, I have a pair of cards to share featuring the delicious Christmas Gingerbread Cookies Set!
First, I stamped images from the Christmas Gingerbread Cookies Set in either Antique Linen or Vintage Photo Distress Ink onto white cardstock.
I then colored my images in with copics and then cut them out with the matching dies.
I then added glossy accents to the tops of the cookies to mimic the shine and dimension of frosting.
I then stamped a tone-on-tone background onto Kraft and cream cardstock with either Antique Linen or Vintage Photo Distress Oxide.
I then stamped and heat embossed my sentiment and then adhered the images with foam tape.
And that’s it! I hope you enjoyed! Thank you so much for stopping by!!
