CARDS

The May kit is filled with the most adorable silhouette images.  I used a few of them to create this scene.....

IMG_6364

To create this card, I did a little ink blending with that new ink.  It's fabulous!  Then I added some water to the panel to create those water drops.  Next, I used black ink and stamped in all the components to make this scene.  I love all the silhouette included in the kit.  The possibilities are endless!

The next card is using the Add-On called Swing By Soon...

May 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit

To create this card, I stamped the swing and did an attempt at some no line coloring.  I masked off the swing and sponged in some clouds and then added in some grass hills.  I stamped the sentiment and kept the card clean and simple but popping up the panel on a white card base.

This next card was so fun to make.  I love this frame die that comes in the main kit....

May 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit

I die cut the window on a white panel.  Next, I did some ink blending on another panel and then popped the window up on foam tape.  Last, I stamped the sentiment in black ink to finish off the card.
This die included in the kit will make for the most beautiful clean and simple cards!

May 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit

This last card was made using the new Besties Stamp and Cut...

My Monthly Hero May Kit

I kept this one super simple but stamping the little leaves on the card base and then stamping and die cutting the wood slice image.  I popped up the slice using foam tape.  To finish off this card, I adhered the card panel to a piece of woodgrain cardstock I had laying around.
