And today, I’m sharing a stenciled card with the September 2021 My Monthly Hero kit!
I have a video for this card set that you can watch below or over at my YouTube channel:
IF THE VIDEO IS NOT VISIBLE PLEASE CLICK HERE TO WATCH!
To start I placed the layering stencils on a panel of canary cardstock and blended the flowers using Dandelion, Butter Bar, Caramel, and Cup O’ Joe ink. Then I repeated the process with the leaves on a piece of kiwi cardstock using Moss and Forever Green ink. I stamped the outline image with versafine and then heat-embossed them with clear embossing powder.
I trimmed the leaves off the yellow cardstock and then layered it on top of the green cardstock so that the leaves were visible. I used foam mounting tape to adhere the flowers to the green cardstock. Then I adhered it to a card base of sand cardstock and added a sentiment die-cut from gold glitter and pitch black cardstock. Finally I finished the card with a few metallic gold sequins!
I created one more card using some of the add-ons from this month’s kit! I started by blending Dandelion, Butterbar, Just Rust, and Pale Tomato ink on a panel of white cardstock in random patterns. I let it dry completely and then stamped the Leaves in the Wind bold prints stamp over the panel with embossing & watermark ink and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. Next I swiped my intense-ified black ink pad across the panel until it covered the panel completely. I used a dry cloth to buff the ink off the embossed images leaving behind the pattern in yellows, oranges, and reds! I splattered the panel with gold metallic paint and set it aside to dry.
I die-cut the Autumn Leaves fancy dies from a variety of gold and bronze glitter cardstocks and adhered them to the card base. I finished the card with a sentiment from Autumn Messages stamped on pitch black cardstock and heat-embossed with brass embossing powder. I adhered it to the card over a tangle of metallic gold thread for a little more sparkle!
And that’s it for me! I just adore those beautiful sunflowers! Head over and pick up your September My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons today before it sells out!
