Please don’t forget that every month Hero also releases a bunch of fabulous Ad-On products, which are also available for purchase and they are themed related to the current MMH.
So, for today I made two cards. Both of them were created using the images of the MMH of November, take a look:
For this card I used one of the ad-ons stamps called Etched Winter Scene Bold Prints, and I used it to create a subtle background for the card (I like to use the Misti Regular Hero Black to stamp large solid images, because you can always stamp it over again to achieve a perfect stamped image). I also used a white pen to enhance a little bit the snow dots of the stamped image.
To create the focal point, I stamped the house image three times using different colors of ink. I want to point out that this kit comes with some dies called Masking Frames which are intended for masking the images. In this case, I used those masking frames as regular frame cuts, and that is why there isn’t a white border around the images.
The sentiment was stamped over a strip of cardstock and then I die cut it with a Ribbon Banner die. I used the banner as the base for the cute houses and I finished up this card with some white sequins and some Glaze details.
The second card features the snowman and a small rectangular stamp also included in the kit, take a look:
This is a 3 5/8″ X 4 1/4″ card, which means that instead of getting only two folded cards out of a single 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of cardstock, I got three cards. The size is obviously smaller, but for small images I think a small card makes them look even cuter. The background was created with the Waves Stencil, and I used it to emboss the cardstock, just to add a bit of texture.
The rectangular stamp background was stamped with Mint Julep to Emerald Green Ombré Ink Pad. Then, the snowman was stamped with black ink and I added some color details. I also die cut him with its matching Masking Frame. To finish up the card, I white embossed one the sentiments over a red cardstock strip and I added some sequins and glaze details.
