November My Monthly Hero and Giveaway!

Hi Stampers! 
Happy Monday! It's the first Monday of the month, which means it's time for the new My Monthly Hero kit and  Blog hop for the new November kit. I love the winter and Holiday theme of the kit and all the add-ons and all the possibilities! 

Let's take a look at the main kit! 

 Kit contents
6x8 Clear Set
4 Tag Dies
4 Shaped Dies
60 Assorted Gift Tags (ornament, star, tree & snow flake: colored, kraft, white)
10 yards of red & white baker's twine
2 Delicata Ink Cubes (Golden Glitz + Celestial Copper)
The value of the kit is $72, but it is sold at $34.99.

There are also some awesome, optional add-on products this month - 4 stamp sets, coordinating, fancy and infinity dies, a paper layering die, background stamps and a stencil. I think my favorite is the Winter Animals! 
Now, you have probably arrived here from May's blog, and if you haven't trust me you don't want to miss her amazing projects. So go back to her blog or start from the beginning(the Hero Arts blog) and if you arrived here from her blog, then you are on the right track and your next stop will be Heather's blog(and you don't want to miss her project, either).

Now, onto my project. I will start with the 2 I shared over at the Hero Arts blog, in case you missed them! You can head over on the blog for the complete details of these first projects using the main kit. First is the felt ornaments, I used the dies from the kit along with some Felt and Frost and Champagne sequins packs, some thread and seed beads! My kids want me to make lot more to decorate our WHOLE Christmas tree with these this year! 
Next is tags that can serve as ornaments, too, again using the main kit. Again full details are over on the Hero Arts Blog! 
Next up is a trio of cards that I created using the Snowflake bold prints. I stamped it on Snow card stock with Versamark, then embossed with white and silver then blended some Bubble Gum and Antigua inks. For my card bases I applied ink directly from the ink pad on the sides and then adhered the panels. I did same on another piece of card stock, let it dry then stamped the little sentiments and embossed. For the silver one, I die cut circle from the inked card stock using the Circle infinity dies, then stamped and embossed with Silver. I used 3 different stamp and cut sets for the sentiments and die cut words. I die cut 4 of each and adhered them together for dimension. I applied versamark on the "wonderful" one and embossed 3 times with silver embossing powder. Then assembled my cards. 



Next up is a card using the Paper Layering Santa Tag. I am not a Santa person, but this Santa is too cute, so I had to use him.  I die cut him and at same time applied Silver Foil with my GoPress and Foil Machine, so it adds little bit silver on all of the edges for a nice look. Then colored him with my Chameleon Pens added Nuvo Drops and Glaze, stamped in Royal Red land cut the little label from the Holiday Badges set and assembled my card! 



And I had to make a card using my favorite add-on set, Winter Animals. I used Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper and created my galaxy using some Mijello Mission Gold watercolors, alcohol and salt, and white gel pen. Then for the snow I used Finetec opalescent watercolors. I stamped the images and sentiments with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder. Using the MISTI I stamped the images again and embossed with sparkle embossing powder (didn't stamp the sentiment 2nd time). Then assembled my card and spayed with Shimmer Spray.



Last, but not the least, it's a card I made using the Happy Hanukkah set. I created my background using some Fabriano Artistico watercolor paper and Gansai Tambi watercolors. After it was dry I stamped the image and sentiment with Veramark and embossed with white embossing powder. Sprayed with Shimmer spray and assembled my card.
