I shared this card on the Hero Arts blog yesterday:
And today I’m sharing a card using several of the cheerful add-ons!
To start I placed the Sun Background Stencil over an A2 panel of Hero Hues Canary cardstock and blending Creamsicle Reactive ink over the stencil. I added a little Fruit Punch Reactive ink to the center of the stencil and then removed the stencil. I blended a little Lemon Drop Reactive ink over the entire panel to soften the stencil edges. Then I set that aside to dry while I worked on the rest of the card.
Next I die-cut the Airplane Fancy die and envelopes from US Mailbox Fancy die and colored them with copic markers. I also die-cut hearts from the Heart Tree Stamp & Cut and colored them with copic markers. I added a few to the back of the envelopes and saved the rest for the card. I stamped a sentiment from the kit onto a piece of Pitch Black cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a banner and tied it to the airplane with a little natural twine. I die-cut clouds from the Cloudy Sky Scene die set with white cardstock and vellum and adhered it around my stenciled panel. Then I added my airplane with foam mounting tape. I used my finger to carefully curve the sentiment to give it a little dimension and then adhered it to the panel. Finally I added my cascading envelopes and hearts to finish the card!
And that’s it! Head over and pick up your My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons today!

Great cards. Like them both but that airplane card is truly amazing! So much detail. Love the little bend in the sentiment banner. I don’t get speechless often but I’m finding it really difficult to find the words for that card. Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring!
Those deco brushes are amazing. Love all the things you created. The plane card with the mail falling down is my favorite.

I’ve been looking everywhere for a stencil that has the whole sun, not just half of it. I’ve put it in my project list at SSS until I have enough items to buy so that postage doesn’t exceed the cost of the order. Thank you for this great design!
