November My Monthly Hero Blog Hop....

Hello!  Today I am here with a few projects made using the November My Monthly Hero Kit.  This is a gorgeous new kit, just in time for Christmas.  I have lots of details to share at the end of this post that will give you more info on this kit and a giveaway!  If you are following along on the hop, you stopped in from my amazing friend, Jennifer's blog.  Scroll down to see where to go next!

I love making tags for my gifts and this kit works perfectly for just that!  

Untitled

I stamped the tree, snowflake and star images and cut them out with their out "tag" die.  The die cuts a hole in each shape and then you have a instant tag.  I added a few little extra details, but I love to keep things easy to mass produce or recreate.  I stamped the Christmas circle in red ink and added those to the Christmas trees.  You can find that little circle in one of the add-ons called Holiday Badges.

On the back, I stamped the To: and From: on each tag....

My favorite kind of card is a Clean and Simple card.  So this next card was quick and easy and would be perfect for mass producing.  

Untitled

I simply scored the card base every 1/2", then stamped and cut out the tree.  I added in some stickles to the ornaments for a little shine.  Next, I stamped the sentiment and then popped the tree up on foam tape for some dimension.  So easy!


My dad has played Santa for 35+ years so I have a love for all things Santa.  When I saw this little add-on, I knew I needed to cut him out and do a little watercoloring....

This tag is called the Paper Layering Santa Tag.  He cuts out in one piece but has all the little pieces that pop out so easily.

To make this card, I masked off the bottom of the card and blended in some Delicata Golden Glitz, that is included in the kit.  That gold ink blends so smoothly.  I wish I could pick up all the shine in the photograph.  Its so pretty!  The sentiment is from the set included in the kit too.  I added some black twine and a gold bell to santa's hat to finish off this card.

So that is it for me today.  Your next stop is over to Wanda's blog.  She gave me a sneak peek of her cards and they are amazing!  Stop over and check them out.  :)

Oh well, that's life. You snooze, you lose. Sorry I haven't been commenting regularly but Google and Blogger aren't cooperating on my iPad (doesn't recognize me).
