Hello, and welcome to the My Monthly Hero kit launch blog hop. If you came from the amazing Clare’s blog, you are right on track! Today the creative team girls are sharing some fabulous projects to celebrate the release of July My Monthly Hero kit.

I created some fun Under The Sea background for today’s project. I stamped various sea creature images from the kit using Hero Arts Shadow Inks : Lime Green, Tide Pool and Mint Julep.

Then I stamped the turtle image with Neon Ombre Ink, fussy cut it with scissors and popped it up on the card front using foam tape. The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder on a piece of black cardstock.

To finish off my card, I add some of Lucy’s super fun sequins, included in the kit. I’m usually not a fan of sea creatures, however, I love how my card turned out. By the way, this wasn’t my first design I came up with. If you want to see my other (failed) attempts, make sure to watch my video below.

I made a process video to show you how to make this card. You can watch it here or on my YouTube channel. This time I wasn’t able to do a voiceover, I hope you still find it helpful, though.

As you may already know, I love creating my own stamped background. The possibilities are endless when you use small images from your stamp sets. If you want more details of a particular card above, just click on the link to go to the original post. MH0716●  Giveaway
