Hero Arts August My Monthly Hero Blog Hop, Giveaway + Video

Hi stampers!

Welcome to the August My Monthly Hero release blog hop. This is yet another kit you don't want to miss!!!It's all about Stacation which is pretty appropriate for the current time and circumstances we live in at the moment with the global pandemic.
If you are following the hop you have probably arrived from Jentte Kausen blog and your next stop is Emily Midgett
So lets get started.
First I have a little light box/shadow bow with light string in it and I have video showing you how to make it! 
Some of the important dimensions are:
Periwinkle cardstock piece for the tray/shadow box is 7 1/2" x 8 4/3" and you will need to score at 1" and 2" at all four sides. 
Nautical cardstock pieces (you need 2): 5" x 4 3/4" . Score the 4 3/4" side at 1" and 4 1/2" so you have two "flaps" measuring 1" and 1/4". Do the same on both piece
Insert (stamped piece): 3 1/2" x 4 3/4"
Watch the video below to see how this project came to be (or click HERE).





Kit Contents:

• 6" x 8" Clear Stamp Set
• 23 Coordinating Frame Cuts
• 1 Greetings Fancy Die
• 5 White Postcards
• Summer Twilight Palette Reactive Ink Pad

Kit Value: $76.00
Kit Cost: $34.99







Next is card using the main kit. I stamped, die cut and colored the images and added some accents using white gel pen. I created window using the circle infinity dies and ink blended the background using Tide Pool ink (video for this card coming shortly)



Then, we have a card using couple Add-ons, the US Map Infinity dies, Mi Casa Camp set for the sentiment and State-cation bold prints. I cut bunch of strips and adhered to a piece of white cardstock, once dried I stamped the bold prints using Embossing ink and embossed in ultra fine clear embossing powder. 
I die cut the 2nd to the largest map from Dove white cardstock and used the negative to adhere on top of the stripped background. Stamped sentiment on Nautical cardstock, embossed in white and trimmed to size to adhere onto the panel. Adhere the entire piece to a Paradise note card!
