On the Hero Arts site, there are also a couple of mystery “grab bags” available:
WB1101 Mystery Stocking Stuffer: – a grab bag of 5 little Christmas-themed stamps, good for filling advent calendars or stuffing stockings!
WB1100 Mystery Treat Bag: – for tag making, so includes printed tags, a stamp, twine and an ink cube.
The November kit was designed as a DIY, with ornaments, advent calendar containers, garlands, and lanterns (when cut-out in vellum and placed over tree lights) in mind – and beyond Christmas as party and wedding favors. This is a versatile kit that you don’t want to miss! For today’s blog hop, I created a card using some of the products included in the main kit. Check it out:
I have always thought that simple makes wonders. For my card, I used one blue patterned paper to create a card base. After that, I created a rectangular panel with the metallic blue card stock and I silver-embossed a sentiment. I matted the panel with vellum card stock and I adhered the panel over the card base with foam tape.
Then, I die cut the triangular snowflake shape from a piece of blue metallic card stock, and I trimmed it into a triangle using a craft knife . I adhered a piece of vellum paper from behind and I adhered the piece onto the card with foam tape as well. To finish off the card, I used a silver sequin and twine from my stash. Quite simple, but I think it looks very pretty.
As always Hero is giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Giveaway closes Sunday, November 13 at 11:59pm, and the winner will be announced the following week. Here is the complete list of participant blogs:
