Watch the creation of these November My Monthly Hero cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
Today I'm sharing cards that focus on full backgrounds. These first two cards feature the incredible November Add On Presents Background. I love this background so much that I decided to create two completely different color ways to really show the versatility.
I intentionally wanted to create a traditional metallic red/green Christmas-y background ad then a rainbow background because who doesn't love bright and colorful rainbows of happiness?! The metallic red/green/silver background was painted with Metallic Glimmer Inks after embossing with gold embossing powder. The colorful background was stamped and embossed with white embossing powder and painted with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen.
The November Add On Presents Background was stamped on dark gray cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. The presents were painted with Pewter Glimmer Metallic Ink and Green and Red Glimmer Metallic Inks. I painted the color with a water brush pen and y'all, I was so super impressed with how awesome these paints color over dark cardstock!
Greetings from the November Add On In For the Holidays were stamped and embossed wtih gold embossing powder, die cut with an Oval Infinity Die, matted on a gold mirror cardstock oval and popped up over the background with foam adhesive. Simple but keeps the focus on those gorgeous painted presents.
The November Add On Presents Background was stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The presents were painted with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen.
Greetings from the November Add On In For the Holidays were stamped and embossed with white embossing powder on dark gray cardstock, die cut with an Oval Infinity Die, matted on white cardstock oval, and popped up over the background with foam adhesive. Bright and colorful!
This next card was featured on the Hero Arts Blog for the Countdown to the kit release but I wanted to share it here since it features only stamps and dies from the Main Kit! This is an Advent Calendar card. The cute little images fit perfectly inside the ornament window openings.
I started by stamping the ornament cling background from the main kit on red cardstock with Versamark Ink and heat embossed the images with white embossing powder. I think it's easier to use a larger piece of cardstock to stamp the images, then use the coordinating ornament die from kit to line up the window openings and die cut the entire panel.
Using the ornament die as a guide, I placed the small images from the kit in a MISTI and stamped the images on smooth white cardstock to layer behind the ornament window openings. The images were stamped with a combination of Hero Arts Intense Black Ink, Strawberry Ink, Emerald Green Ink, Butter Bar Ink, and Cup O' Joe Ink.
Details were added to some of the images with Nuvo Crystal Drops.
The window panel was adhered over the small stamped images on the front of the card with foam adhesive.
The design was finished by stamping a greeting from the Winter Holiday Messages Stamp Set inside the card.
