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.

DECEMBER 2021 My Monthly Hero Kit | Hero Arts

DECEMBER 2021, My Monthly Hero Kit,Hero Arts, | City Scape, Missing You, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to,

Hello, my friends!

The December 2021 My Monthly Hero kit is live!  So I can finally share a couple of cards featuring the new kit. This month's kit is all about cities and neighborhoods. Perfect for those moving, traveling, missing you, thinking of you friendship cards, and many more themes. This month's theme also reminds me of how much I miss traveling and seeing different cities. 

For this card, I stamped the background using Unicorn Pigment Ink onto Pitch Black Cardstock and heat embossed the lines with White Detail Embossing Powder. I then fussy cut a roofline and attached this city scene to the ink blended card panel that I had blended out the sunrise using the inks included in the kit. The sentiment was stamped out using an Intens-ified Black Ink Pad with a few stamps from the included stamp set. To finish I added a few sparkly sequins.

For this next card, I made the entire background panel using the full stamped image that I cut to A2 size. I repeated the same process to stamp the background using Unicorn Pigment Ink onto Pitch Black Cardstock and heat embossed the lines with White Detail Embossing Powder. I then chose one of the little houses and stamped the house using a red piece of cardstock, fussy cut it, and glued it to a strip of paper that I had stamped out another sentiment from the included set.  I then used foam tape to add the house and sentiment onto the card panel.

To finish, I added the hey! using the same Intens-ified Black Ink Pad and then used the coordinating bubble die from the included die set and popped it in place. Finally, trimmed down the entire panel and added it to the card base. 

Looking at this card now, I realized I forgot to add some bling😱! I never do that!!! Shhh, don't tell anyone... it's our secret!

Missing You - Slimline Beach Shaker Card | Honey Bee Stamps


Missing You, Beach Scene Shaker Card, Honey Bee Stamps, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, Slimline Card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Making Waves long Border Dies, Hello Summer, Ink Blending,

Hello friends and Happy Monday!

Like many of you, we will be having a staycation this summer. It's time to explore our own backyards and enjoy the nature around us. Thankfully we do have mountains and lakes a few hours away that we can explore. We will miss the beach this year, but hopefully, we will have things figured out for next summer as we would love to travel back to Europe to visit our family and maybe get that beach time in. Today's shaker card theme is about missing someone, so I thought it would be appropriate to create a missing you Beach card.

CARD DETAILS

To start, I began by die cutting 2 of the frames from the SLIMLINE SENTIMENTS EYELET DIES. I then used the MAKING WAVES LONG BORDER DIES to create the sand and the ocean waves using the inside die cuts of the SLIMLINE SENTIMENTS EYELET DIES

Missing You, Beach Scene Shaker Card, Honey Bee Stamps, Card Making, Stamping, Die Cutting, handmade card, Slimline Card, ilovedoingallthingscrafty, Stamps, how to, Making Waves long Border Dies, Hello Summer, Ink Blending,

I used Antique Linen and Gathered Twigs Distress Oxide Inks (OI) to blend out the sand on the gentle waves and glued those pieces together and set them aside to use later on top of the shaker card.

For the top of the card panel, I blended out a soft sun using a circle from the CIRCLE SPOTLIGHT STENCIL and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Ink and glued that to the card base. For the sky, I used Broken China OI.

Next, I glued the ocean waves to the middle are of the card base that I had blended Mermaid Lagoon and Salty Ocean OI. The bottom area was left blank as the sand will cover up the area in the final steps of the card.

I then glued acetate to the scalloped slimline frame and added very thin strips of foam tape all around the edges and across the bottom just under where the sand will be. This will keep the shaker bits from falling all the way down under the sand and make the confetti more visible.

On the top half of the card base, I added my Confetti Mix (see links below) in a pile and then pressed the frame in place.

Before gluing down the sand area, I stamped the missing you sentiment from PARADISE BLOOMS.  I then finished off the card by stamping out a few images from the HELLO SUMMER set and did some simple no-line coloring using Copic markers and added them to the sand area.

I hope this Missing You card doesn't make you miss the beach too much but instead inspire you to send a card to a friend that you spend time with at the beach or anywhere else that reminds you of them.

Have a wonderful week! Thank you for stopping by and until next time... Happy Crafting πŸ‘‹
