Today I’m delighted to be hopping along with the fabulous Hero Arts Global Team, for the second time. Every other month we do an IG hop, but we are back to a blog hop this time.
This month’s kit is a flower lovers dream, with a gorgeous background stamp with coordinating layering stencils.
I used the ink cubes that comes with the kit, with the layering stencils and the backgrund stamp, and made two different cards with the panels I made.
I wanted the two cards to be slightly different, to show how you can use the same supplies to get different looks.
The second card is slightly different with the colours too, but not much. It is finished off very simply with a skinny banner with a sentiment on it, plus a couple of little heart stickers.
The fabulous fancy dies that are this months add-ons are so fun, I couldn’t stop using them and ended up with five different cards!
Having had lots of ready made striped backgrounds on hand, some of these were super easy to make. Lots of fun was had!
The first one was kept simple, by trimming down a white card stock panel so that it showed a little bit of the stripy background around it. On this I used the Father’s Day Fancy Die directly, and popped out the bits and put aside.
The panel was adhered to the background, and then inside the hole I added the actual Happy Father’s Day word. This let’s the stripes show through too, and makes the word die pop!
On the second card I used the outline only, and the little bits, for a super simple card. Father’s Day cards are not usually fussy and full of bling so this felt like it fit really well.
As mentioned I couldn’t stop making cards with these, and I ended up making a third card too.
I used the Father’s Day Fancy Die again, and this time on white, dark grey and black card stock and I layered these up quite high.
So, I couldn’t not use the Mother’s Day Fancy Die so I used it on black card stock too, and adhered this to another striped background. I know, I know.. how many can you make? But it’s so fun!
Once it had dried it made the black card stock EXTRA magic, I love this look!
For my final card, I used the lovely background stamp with some white embossing powder, and on top of this I used Karin Markers to make a soft rainbow.
On white card stock I used the Happy Mother’s Day fancy die and added on top of this background. A few little embellishments, from the kit, were added to the card and that was it.
So, as you can see, I really, really enjoyed this kit plus the add-ons. I hope you enjoyed this post and the hop!
