Pop Up Stage Card Featuring My Monthly Hero Kit Dec 2018

pop up stage card

Hello friends!

Today I have a very fun card to share with you. I have been a member of the Hero Arts Monthly Kit and I have loved each one of the subscription I have been receiving each month in my mail box. It is the My Monthly Hero Kit of December 2018 that I am featuring today. This is a large 6″ by 8″ stamp set with beautiful images of fairies and dandelion.  As soon as I found out what images are in the upcoming stamp in my subscription I had this idea in my head. I wanted to create a card that looks like a scene but in layers.

The Elements:

So I created this  fun card with layers of scenes using all of the images in the stamp set. The stamped images are colored using Copic Markers, and I usually bring the stamped images to work. Whenever I get a little bit of free time I color them. Took them home and die cut using the coordinating dies that came in the kit.

The Layers of The Card:

I started cutting out the layers of card stock. Instead of blending blue and green I picked a light blue card stock so that it would look like a sky and I could ink blend the bottom half with Mowed Lawn Distressed Oxide Ink.

I used the Grassy Border die from My Favorite Things to cut a grass from dark green Card stock.

This card is 4 and a quarter inches tall and 5 and a half inches wide. It is a landscape side folding card.

Here are the sizes of the layers of card stock:

The Card Base measures 4 and a quarter by 11 inches scored in the middle at 5 and a half inches mark.
The 3rd layer measures 4 and a quarter by 10inches scored at 1/2 inch then 5 inch and then again at 9 and a half inch mark.
The 2nd layer measures 4 and a quarter by 8 inches scored at 1/2 inch then 4 inch then again at 7 and a half inch mark.
The top most inside layer is 4 and quarter by 6 inches scored at 1/2 inch then 3 inches and then again at 5 and a half inches mark.

There are three layers in the inside with arched windows cut in the middle using the largest die of the  Arched Circle Stacked Die from My Favorite Things.

Front of the Card:

Front of the card is another panel of slightly smaller card stock again ink blended and decorated with the images.

The Sentiment:

The sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped in Versamark Ink and embossed in Hero Arts White Detail Embossing Powder. 

For the final touch I added Wink of stella glitter pen on the clothes of fairies and the dandelion. on the lady bug images I added some glossy accent.

I think this card turned out amazingly dreamy and beautiful. Hope you guys will give this technique a try. This is a vey easy card that looks like a stage with all these images added in those layers.

Cards Featuring My Monthly Hero Card Kit August 2018

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. my monthly hero card kit august 2018

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.
