Hello. Thank you for stopping by. Hope you’re doing great. Today I am presenting my card I made using My Monthly Hero Card Kit for the month of August.
This card kit is coffee themed. Here’s my card for today.
First I started by stamping the coffee stamp image from the Hero Arts Monthly Kit on a 110lb Neenah solar white cardstock twice using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. I colored them using Copic colors and then die cut the images using the coordinating dies that came in the kit. Added some shimmer on the cup and the plate using Wink Of Stella Glitter pen in clear. Then highlighted some streaks of white across with Gelly Roll Pen.
What Inspired me:
I usually look up on Pinterest for inspirations
like the color combination, or scenes. I came across
this color combo that I really liked for this card. That’s why I colored the coffee cups in blue-green shades of Copics.
I even created my own stip of dusty pink paper with one of the color combinations to go with my color theme where I stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set.
These were coffee cups so I wanted them to sit on a table. I had wood patterned pattern paper in my stash. I cut that with Simon Says Stamp’s Stitched Circle Dies. Seems like I use these in almost every project. Arranged the table with the cups and the sentiment strip right above it using Foam Tapes. Then I cut the paper that came in the kit using the Simon Says Stamp‘s Stitched Rectangle Dies. But I wanted more of that teal in my card so I cut another pattern paper in similar color using the same die and arranged on the card that was a standard A2 size top folding panel on Simon Says Stamp Smoke Card Stock.
Another Card From the Same kit
I also attempted to create another card with the same kit.
This one is repeated stamping technique on the background with Copic colored images. A strip of cardstock colored with Copic to match the coffee color in the background was stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed using the embossing powder that came with the kit. This embossing powder is a little bit textured cream color. I love it.
Another Stamped image I painted with gold watercolor paint I bought recently.
I am not very much impressed with the outcome. But I did work very hard with these cards. Want to definitely come up with more ideas for this kit.
I love the Subscription for the My Monthly Hero Card Kit. It is worth the price I pay and the excitement when I receive my monthly parcel is priceless.
