Hero Arts October My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hero Arts October My Monthly Hero Countdown

Hello friends!! Today I’m joining Hero Arts second day of our countdown till the release of the October My Monthly Hero Kit. The kit will be available for purchase on Monday, October 5th.

Today I have a pair of colorful clean and simple cards to share featuring the October kit!

To create my first card with the stacked ornament, I first die cut the ornament out of cherry, papaya, canary, kiwi, & paradise cardstock.

I then die cut just the top of the ornament five times out of mirrored silver cardstock. I then trimmed off any remaining portion of the ornament and then adhered the silver tops to the colored ornaments. Next, I arranged the ornaments, one on top of the other but slightly off-set and then held them in place with foam adhesive. I then stamped a sentiment onto a 4″ x 5 1/4″ panel in INTENS-ified Blac

k Ink and then adhered the panel onto a A2 top-folding card base made from pebble cardstock. I then finished the card by adhering the ornaments to the card front.

For my second card, I first stamped several images from the set in Fruit Punch, Dandelion, Key Lime Fizz, and Pool Party ink. I then die cut the images out with the matching dies and then die cut an A2 panel of pebble cardstock out with the ornament die.

Next, I die cut just the top of the ornament with the ornament die out of mirrored cardstock and then trimmed off any excess. I then adhered the pebble panel onto an A2 top-folding card base and then stamped a sentiment in INTENS-ified Black Ink. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the die cut images to the card front.

I hope you enjoyed my cards! Thank you so much for stopping by!!
