Hero Arts / My Monthly Hero November Blog Hop / Giveaway

Advent2 

Hello and Welcome!  
I am so excited to be a part of the My Monthly Hero Blog Hop this month!  Hero Arts is one of my favorite companies so designing with the My Monthly Hero Kits is always an honor!   You are going to LOVE this month's kit......I had so much fun and made SIX cards with the main kit and add-ons!!  I will be sharing more of them over on my Instagram feed so make sure to follow me there to see the rest of my cards using the MMH kit!

This month's kit has some fabulous Holiday themed sets and dies!  The kit is available for a limited time only - once it's gone, it's gone. Kits begin shipping from Hero Arts on Friday, November 9. You can now subscribe to receive the kit monthly and never miss one!  The kit value is over $70......but only costs $34.99.  Once this kit is gone, it's gone!




This month's kit contains an Advent cling stamp with ornaments, a clear Advent icons stamp set, coordinating Advent ornament door die, along with some embossing powders.  

Advent3

I gold heat embossed the ornaments onto red cardstock and ran this through my Big Shot with the Advent die.  I carefully pulled up all the little ornament windows to stamp all the icons inside.  

To finish, I added my panel to the icon panel and onto a top folding white notecard.  A gold/white twine was added to pull the card together.

***********************************

I adore the tiny reindeer image included in the main stamp set in the kit.  So I made a card focusing on it!  I scored my notecard every 3/4" and stamped two rows of reindeer leaving a space to stamp my sentiment.  

I added black eyes with a black pen and red stickles for all the noses!  Clean and simple!

Advent Reindeer

***********************************

My last card uses an add-on die........the DIY Ornament Kit.  It comes with some beautiful iridescent papers.  I impressed the largest ornament into a white cardstock panel and trimmed it down on 2 sides.  

Ornament

After die cutting the largest ornament out of the iridescent paper, it was adhered in the center over the impressed image on my cardstock leaving the points unadhered for dimension.  My sentiment, from Winter Wreath, was GREEN heat embossed onto a strip of white cardstock and added with foam adhesive.  A few sequins were tucked in there to add to the sparkle of the card.  To finish, the panel was adhered to a coordinating green cardstock to pull this all together.  I love how this came out!
