Ahh… another week done. Happy Friday peeps! I had a rather uninteresting week but sometimes that’s ok! No big plans for the weekend either. Guess getting crafty is always a good way to spend some time. My Craft Closet needs to be organized in the worst way and I really do need to part with some of my stamp sets, but it’s so hard. Do you feel that way? Are you a stamp hoarder?! LOL!
I haven’t purchased a My Monthly Hero Kit in a while. Not that I haven’t liked them but this month’s kit is awesome and that’s what I used for my card. It was inspired by Jennifer McGuire’s partial die cutting video that I watched the other day. I cut a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock to 6 1/4 x 9 3/4 and scored it at 3 1/4 and 6 1/2. I arranged the dies for the Sunflower on both of the front panels and die cut it using the partial die cutting technique and my Spellbinder’s Platinum Machine. Once I trimmed of the excess with my Fiskars Paper Trimmer I used my Misti to Stamp the Sunflowers in Gina K Amalgam Ink. Then I used the coordinating stencils included in the kit along with Hero Arts Butter Bar, Pumpkin Pie, Green Apple, Lime Green, Cup O Joe and Root Beer Ink and my Blender Brushes to add color to them. To hold everything in place while I was Inking I used my Wendy Vecchi Make Art Stay-tion. I scored along the edges of the sunflowers and folded them in on each other. I decided that I wanted a green background so I cut a piece of Green 110lb Card Stock to 3 1/8 x 6 1/2 and scored along the top adding adhesive to the flap and adhered it to the card. To hide the green on the back I added another piece of 110lb Card Stock with some Bearly Arts Glue. My greeting is also from the kit and is cut from Super Gold Curious Metallic Card Stock and a piece of Green 110lb for the shadow. I adhered them to each other and the card with more Bearly Arts Glue. I decided I wanted another greeting on the green panel so I stamped one from the Kit in Black.
I love a coordinating envelope and I thought a Kraft one would be perfect so I got out my Pinkfresh Mini Slimline Envelope dies and some Stampin’ Up! Kraft Card Stock and made one. I really do think the card is pretty cool and different, I enjoyed making it! I hope that you like it too and I thank you for stopping by and visiting with me today! Have a great weekend!
