My Monthly Hero August 2016 Kit Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello… Again… 😀 This is my third post today!!! To read the previous blog posts, you can scroll down or you can read more my first project blog post here and the second project blog post here.

And this third project and I am super excited because this project I made for participating at Hero Arts – My Monthly Hero Kit blog hop with their amazing and creative team members.


This time I made a shaker, watercolored card:

My Monthy Hero August Kit - Shaker Watercolored Card by Helen Gullett

First I diecut the frame Fancy die set with my WRMK Evolution Advanced diecutting machine and watercolored it with Distress Mini Ink Pads. I set it aside to dry while working on the fairies and shaker.

I stamped the fairies with VersaFine Onyx Black ink pad and diecut them with the matching dies, and then watercolored them with Distress Mini Ink Pads also. Then I decided to add some sparkle and shine on their wings, clothes and hair using Wink Of Stella clear glitter brush… Oh love it! Now they are sparkly and shiny fairies 🙂

For the shaker, I diecut Bazzill vellum paper using the oval border die and then I stamped some of the ferns using Hero Arts green ink cubes. I used my craft heater to dry the stamped images.

Next, I added the vellum on the first diecut that I colored before with Tombow mono glue. Then I added 3d foam tape around the edge. I added some mixed sequins I had in stash that match the fairies and frame colors. Then I added the frame on the Wood grain cardstock.

I finished the card with some of the Pretty Pink Posh Droplets.

This month’s kit was inspired by “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and features a gorgeous forest fairy theme.
