I am back again today with a few cards featuring the amazing December Add-Ons from this month's Release from Hero Arts.

This first card features the City Window Fancy Die that I turned into a shaker card. To create the sunset background I ink blended Lemon Drop, Berry Smoothie, and Splash Reactive Inks together.

To create the shaker window,  I added acetate to the window opening then lined the edges with foam tape. I then filled the shaker area with a sequin mix and closed it up with the blended background. To finish off this clean and simple card I stamped the sentiment "wishing we lived closer" from the Wherever You Go stamp set using Intens-ified Black Ink.

For this next colorful creation, I combined a couple of the new die sets to create this Cityscape scene. I used dies from the City Park HeroScape Frame Cuts as well as the Tri-fold Edge City Fancy Dies. To make it look like the lights were all on in the buildings I trace the outline of the buildings onto a piece of yellow cardstock and then fussy cut them out. I then layered and glue the die-cut buildings onto the yellow cardstock layer.

Doesn't this remind you of New York City and the views you might see looking from Central Park? I can't wait to visit NYC again. Hopefully someday soon!

I used a bunch of scrap pieces of paper to create the layers for this scene and then backed them onto a piece of Pitch Black Cardstock that I had splattered with Unicorn Pigment Ink. I also used the Unicorn Pigment Ink to stamp the sentiment from the City Park HeroScape that was then heat set using White Detail Embossing Powder.

To finish my starry sky I added a scattering of bubbles.
