Hi there! Today is the first Monday of the month, so that means that the new My Monthly Hero kit is available for purchase! This month’s kit is just plain fun, featuring a unique Art Deco theme, and an absolutely gorgeous cover plate die included in the kit itself, along with lots of fun add-ons. You should have arrived from Caly Person’s blog, and your next stop is Jessica Frost-Ballas’s blog. This month’s kit features a fabulous crafter-of-all-trades theme, and I am absolutely in looooove with it! So many different types of crafting represented with this kit!
This month’s kit features: 6″ x 8″ Clear Stamp Set, 20 Coordinating Frame Cuts, 2 Fancy Dies, Purple Sparkle Embossing Powder 0.5 oz., Clear Embossing & Watermark Ink Cube, Lavender Washi Tape, and 5 Mini Clothespins. The contents of this kit are valued at $70, but is priced at a very pocketbook-friendly $34.99! Seriously, you aren’t going to want to pass this kit up… it’s so. darn. cute. The add-ons are great too:
These kits frequently sell out, and once they’re gone, they’re gone… so don’t wait and miss out! You can also subscribe to make sure that you get first dibs every month. The kits will begin shipping from the warehouse on Friday, May 10th. I have a couple of projects to show you today, so let’s get started!
For today’s project, I wanted to use the fantastic fancy die that is included in this kit. I love that the My Monthly Hero kits have so many fantastic dies with them, especially these fancy dies that are standalone and so intricate!! I die cut the gorgeous heart yarn ball from some Azalea card stock, then blended Raspberry Jam ink with blender brushes around the edges of both die cuts. I also die cut the knitting needles from some silver foil card stock to give them some authentic shine.
Next, I used the new Knitting Pattern add-on to heat emboss a subtle background on an A2 panel of Peony card stock. I trimmed a strip of white card stock and added it slightly off center on the heat embossed panel as a sort of ground for my hot pink yarn die cut.
I stamped a greeting from the main kit on a strip of white card stock, then layered all of the die cuts on the card base using foam tape. I love that bright pop of the hot pink yarn die cut on the subtle pale pink and white background!
Well, that’s all for my projects today! Now for some fun giveaway information!
