MMH PROJECTS


Hero Arst



This first card showcased the April My Monthly Hero Kit.  This months kit has an Australian Theme and is full of adorable animal silhouettes, the perfect coordinating sentiments and dies and an awesome stencil!  I created a shaker card for todays hop AND a video!  I know my cards are usually pretty clean and simple, but this time I had to shake things up....LOL....and make an actual shaker card!  Check out the video below for all the details but keep scrolling to check out the card I made using this month's add-ons.

APRIL ADD-ON PROJECTS


Hero Arts


This new die might be a favorite now.  Its called Surfs Up Fancy Die and its SO much fun!  There are 3 dies that layer together to create the coolest wave.  I used a light blue for the full wave and did a little ink blending at the bottom.  Then I layered the dark blue at the bottom and the white caps at the top.  I popped the whole thing up on foam tape and added in the simple setneimnt.  Last, I added in the pink surf board and the surfer in black.  I love how much detail this adds to my clean and simple card.

This next add-on is called Beach Heroscape....


Hero Arts


I just love this add-on, called Beach Heroscape, with the beach and all the beachy details.  I masked off the middle of the card and blended in a sandy bottom with a sunny sky.  I stamped and layered the ocean and die cut it out with its coordinating die.  Last, I stamped in the sentiment, the little birds in the sky and the little beach goer at the bottom.  I matted the panel with gray cardstock and then popped it all up on a white card base.

Just a Note {The Greetery}...

Hey friends!  I hope you are hanging in there during this stressful time.  We are hanging out and doing school and crafting everyday.  Feeling so fortunate to have a hobby where I can hide away and create to take my mind off things.  Right now I am zooming with friends and we are all crafting.  I made this and am now sitting down to type while we are chatting.  I do love my crafty friends!


The Greetery


I grabbed my new favorite stamp/stencil combo from The Greetery.  I picked different colors to use this time for a fresh, springy feel.  I linked all the Altenew Inks I used down in my supply list at the end of this post.


The Greetery


I cut background panel down and then cut it in 3 parts.  Using fun foam, I popped up the panels directly on a white card base.  Using black fun foam, I die cut my sentiment from the Sentiment Starters Die.  I just love the font in this set.


The Greetery


I finished off the card with some clear drops for a little extra detail.  Super easy!  

Check out the Print Shop: Fresh Floral Stamp/Stencil Set HERE.  The Sentiment Starters Dies will be available soon.  Just keep an eye out on The Greetery Blog for those details.

Thanks so much for stopping in today!  Hope you are doing well.  Have a great day!

Today's card was a fun one to make.  I grabbed a piece of coral cardstock and blended in some Crimson ink around the edge, keeping the center like a highlight.  I stamped the an image from the Engraved Flowers Stamp Set in white ink.  Next, I cut down the panel and added it to a white card base. 


Altenew


I die cut the Congrats Frame Die in black cardstock and cut off the congrats to line the bottom red panel.  I added that to the panel using spray adhesive.  Last, I die cut the Miss You Die in black cardstock and black fun foam.  I adhered the 2 together and added them to the top of the red panel.
