January My Monthly Hero Blog Hop + Giveaway!

Hi stampers!

Welcome to the January MMH release blog hop. This is another kit you don't want to miss!!!

This release is all about Love is in the air, and is full of products for celebrating Valentine's Day, and beyond! While love is the inspiration for this month's products,most of them be useful throughout the year, including the main kit. I shared a peek of the kit yesterday over on the Hero Blog showing you everyday use of the kit!


And here is my project for today, I combined the kit with the January Fancy Die, which you can use for planners, scrapbooks etc. I just used it for a birthday card. I used the Aqua metallic ink from the kit to create the background and color the die cut (I used 3 stacked die cuts for the sentiment to give it an extra raised look) 


So now, lets see the entire kit and what's included in it!!!!

4" x 6" Clear Stamp Set
14 Coordinating Fancy Dies

8 5.5" x 8.5" Sheets of Cardstock (Gold Breeze, Kraft, Fireweed, Rose)

That blue color just says snow to me. Hope we see that here in Texas. Friday it was 72, then threats of tornadoes that night and today it is 38.
