Welcome to the blog hop and giveaway for the February My Monthly Hero (MMH) Kit. This month’s kit is sure to provide you with mystical and magical images… Nothing is impossible. Lets take a peek!
My card inspiration for you today is all about perspective and how just because you may look at things differently from others doesn’t mean that it is wrong. There will always be alternate views of the same thing. I am getting too philosophical for card making. Let’s get to the details!
I stamped the window and 2 of the moon images onto my favorite Copic paper. I used Y11, Y15, W5, W3, W1, B39, B37, and B34 to color and cut using the coordinating dies. I added some “stars” with a white gel pen just for some extra detail.
I cut a panel of white cardstock to 4 by 5 1/4 inches. I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment and stars using Platinum embossing powder. Clouds were cut from white cardstock using the “Cloudy Sky Scene” die set. You could easily free hand the clouds if you don’t have the dies. Contour and Blue Hawaii ink were blended onto the edges and adhered onto the panel.
I then adhered my stamped and colored elements with extra white scraps or foam tape. Sometimes I use scraps because it doesn’t give as much as dimension as foam. Plus I get to use up little pieces without wasting them.
The cloud panel was adhered to Nautical cardstock measuring 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inches. This was then added to a white side folding card base.
