I have 3 cards using the new kit and a couple of the add-ons.  

My Monthly Hero

To create this card, I used the Vintage Window Fancy die in gold card stock to frame the card base.  I added in the image of the dancing couple after it was die cut.  I used fun foam to give the image some dimension.  Last, I stamped the sentiment along the bottom of the window.  The sentiment is full of sentiments perfect for the party card!

My Monthly Hero

This next card showcases the new Dancing Music Notes Confetti Die.

My Monthly Hero

I used the die to emboss the card instead of cut.  I ran the music die through again with gold cardstock and with black.  I added in random notes to the front of the card and then stamped the sentiment from the main kit to complete this clean and simple card.

My Monthly Hero

Everything you see on this last card comes from the main February My Monthly Hero Kit....

My Monthly Hero

I used that gorgeous stencil in the background and blended in some Gold Delicata Ink.  I love the shimmery look it adds to the card.  Next, I used some of the deco designs to decorate the card front.  I stamped the frame along the top and bottom of the card and then added in the sentiment along the bottom.  I grabbed the little burst image and added that to the top of the card.  I stamped and die cut the dancers and popped them up on foam tape.  The kit includes some gold and black confetti  and I added in several pieces to the card front to finish it off.

There will be lots more to see on this hop.  This kit has an awesome Art Deco feel and makes for some really pretty and interesting cards!

  2. The gold glitter frame really highlights the central image on your first card. But I really like the "kick up your heels" sentiment....it can be used for so many different reasons. And the way that you used the die was very unique.
