Hero Arts: October My Monthly Hero Blog Hop, Giveaway + VIdeo

 Hi everyone!

Happy Monday and Welcome to the October My Monthly Hero blog hop! In this month's kit we are featuring Christmas, and in particular the theme is Nordic/Scandinavian Christmas.

I so love this kit! And you can get all kinds of different looks on your cards and projects. (On the bottom I have the card/ornament I had up on Friday for the Countdown). 

If you are following the hop you have probably arrived from Emily Midgett's blog and your next stop is Jessica Frost-Ballas.


Now lets go into the cards (Video below)

I have couple cards featuring the small images, and I used them in a way to create filled in shapes. For the first one I drew a circle with pencil and stamped the images within the circles. I filled the space with little dots using markers. For the second one I did a triangle to represent a tree and did the same thing with adding dots with markers.

Once the ink was completely dry I erased the pencil lines. Stamped sentiment and embossed in white. Then assembled my cards.
