I shared this card using the My Monthly Hero kit on my blog this weekend:
And today, I’m sharing a slimline card with the July 2022 My Monthly Hero kit!
To start, I stamped a small flock (ha) of layered flamingoes and die-cut them with the coordinating dies. Then I used the same inks that I stamped the flamingoes with to blend my tropical sky. I used a blending brush and a light hand to keep it softer. Then I blended a few shades of teal to create my water.
I stamped some of the wave ripples using an older Hero set, Color Layering Mountains at the Lake and then stamped the kit grasses. I also added a sentiment from the kit stamped in intense-ified black ink. Finally I adhered the flamingoes on the left and right with liquid glue and the center bunch with foam mounting tape for a little extra dimension!
And I used one of the new add-on sets to create a vibrant and bold thank you card!
I stamped Birds of Paradise and colored them with copic markers before die-cutting them with the coordinating die. I love that it’s a big, easy to color image that packs a punch! Then I blended bright orange and red inks onto a panel of Papaya cardstock leaving the center of the panel the cardstock color. I stamped a sentiment and heat-embossed it with black embossing powder and then adhered my flowers with foam mounting tape!
And that’s it for me! I just love this entire kit…it makes me feel like I’m in a dream!! Head over and pick up your July My Monthly Hero kit and add-ons today before it sells out!
