Hello friends!! I’m so excited to be here for another My Monthly Hero blog hop!! This month’s kit has such a wonderful earth and nature theme and I had so much fun creating today’s cards!!
First up is a card that I created with the main My Monthly Hero December Kit!!
First I stamped the main image from the stamp set in Antique Linen Distress Ink onto an A2 panel of bristol paper. I then no-line watercolored the image in with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.
- Dress: 442, 476 126, 346
- Hair: 126, 346
- Skin: 942
- Cheeks: 703
- Dear/Branches: 997, 969
- Antlers: 992
- Flowers/Butterflies: Yellow: 055, 99; Orange: 946, 856; Red: 856; Fuchsia: 685; Purple: 636
- Fish: 946, 856
Once I finished coloring, I then stamped a sentiment in Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and then trimmed the panel down 1/8″ on all the sides. I finished the card by adhering the panel onto an A2 top-folding cardbase.
Next up is a shaker card I created with the beautiful Universal Woman Stamp Set!
First, I stamped the main image in Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and then copic colored the image.
- Hair: BG05, BG09, B39, 100
- Skin: E50, E51, E31
- Earth: B01, B02; G14, G07
- Mars: R05, R37, R59
- Saturn: Y21, Y15, Y00
- Jupiter: YR04, Y21, E08
When I had finishing coloring my image with copics, I then colored all the stars with a Quickie Glue pen and then applied Hero Arts Silver Sparkle Embossing Powder and then heat set. Next, I die cut the image with a circle die from the HA Circle Infinity Die Set.
I then used the same circle and die cut a window from a 4″x 5.25″ panel of black cardstock and black craft foam. Next, I stamped and heat embossed a sentiment in Hero Arts Silver Sparkle Embossing Powder onto the cardstock panel. I then adhered my image onto an A2 top-folding black cardbase, using the diecut panel to aid with positioning.
Next, I constructed by adhering the diecut craft foam panel onto my card base. I then added some star confetti from the HA’s Icicle Sequins Mix to the shaker well. Next, I adhered a panel of acetate to the backside of my panel and then adhered the panel onto my shaker.
And last is a fun card that I created with the adorable Carry the World Stamp Set and matching dies!
First, I created a galaxy background with Gansai Tambi watercolors. I have done this before and even made a video of the process, you can check that out here. While the background dried I then stamped several images from the Carry the World Stamp Set in Hero Arts Intense Black Ink and then copic colored the images.
- Earth: B01, B02, BG15, Bg09; YG11, YG41, G02
- Turtles: G21, YG63, YG67
- Stars: Y02, Y08, Y17
- Moon: C-1, C-3, C-5
When I had finished coloring the images I then die cut them with the matching dies. I then stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment onto black cardstock and then fussy cut it out. Next, I trimmed my galaxy background down to 4.125″ x 5.375″ and then adhered it onto an A2 top-folding black card base. Next, I finished my card by adhering my sentiment with liquid glue and my images with foam tape.
