Hi there and happy Friday!
It’s day one of three days counting down to the December Hero Arts release on Monday, and today I’m sharing a card featuring the December My Monthly Hero card kit (the kit goes live on 12/7).
I started with the gorgeous cloud layering stamps, stamping the sold blue layer in Cornflower Mid-Tone Shadow Ink onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ of Dove White cardstock. Then I rotated the panel 180 degrees and stamped the again. Next, I stamped the second layer of clouds in Dusty Blue Mid-Tone Shadow Ink, rotated the panel 180 degrees. I stamped the final layer in Soft Sky Shadow Ink, rotated, and stamped again.
With the sky complete, I moved on to the Hope sentiment which I cut from another piece of Dove White cardstock. Rather than letting all of the pieces fall out, I used a piece of Post-it Tape to temporarily hold them all in place. Then, using a foam blending tool, I blended Lemon Drop, Creamsicle, and Fruit Punch Reactive inks over the sentiment, concentrating the yellow over the sun-shaped “o.” When I finished blending, I adhered the little pieces of the sentiment to the background, using the negative space of my die cut as a template to help me place the pieces.
Next, I stamped the sentiment in Intens-ified Black ink, inking up and stamping the first and second parts of the stamp separately so that I could place the words on either side of the sun rays. And to finish, I adhered my card front to an A2-sized card base.
