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.
