My first card features the October My Monthly Hero Kit as well as the new Patina Technique Kit.

To create this card I first die cut an A2 panel of Meadow cardstock with the window die included in the kit. I then swiped the Turquoise ink pad included in the Patina Technique Kit directly over the panel. Next, I sprinkled the brass embossing powder (included in the Patina Technique Kit) over the panel and then heat set. I then ink blended more of the Turquoise ink as well as some Root Beer reactive ink over the panel to age it more. 

Next, I die cut the inside of the front of an A2 side-folded card base with the window die and then adhered my aged window to the card front. I then die cut a scrap of Meadow cardstock with just the top of the window die. Next, I trimmed the banner out from the rest of the window by cutting the connecting tabs. I then stamped and gold heat embossed a sentiment. After I had heat set the sentiment I then stamped the sentiment again but slightly off-set in Soft Olive to create a drop shadow and then adhered the sentiment to the card front. 

Next, I stamped several images from the kit onto white cardstock in INTENS-ified black ink. I then copic colored the images and then die cut them out with the matching dies. Next, I ink blending the inside of my card with Soft Pool to ground the scene. Next, I adhered the tree and rocking horse inside the card. Lastly, I finished the card by adhering the garland to the front.

My next card features the Patina Technique Kit once more and also the Steampunk Holiday stamp set and Victorian stencil.

To create this card I first applied the Turquoise ink directly over the stencil. Next, I ran the inked up stencil through my die cutting machine with a panel of Paradise cardstock and a rubber mat to dry emboss the panel. I then sprinkled the brass embossing powder over my panel and then heat with my heat tool. When I had finished heat setting my powder, I then adhered the panel onto an A2 top-folded white card base.

Next, I stamped an image and a sentiment from the Steampunk Holiday stamp set in Embossing and Watermark Ink onto white cardstock.

I then pour brass embossing powder over and then heat set with my heat tool. Next, trimmed the sentiment and image down to a small panel and then finish the card by adhering the panel with foam adhesive.
