Hey everybody! It's that wonderful time of month again when the countdown to the new My Monthly Hero kit is on and we get to share some sneak peeks! If you aren't familiar with the MMH kits from Hero Arts then here's the scoop... On the first Monday of every month Hero Arts releases a new kit full of all kinds of amazing supplies. These kits are hugely discounted! The value can be as much as $70 or $80 and they only cost $34.99.

For my sneak peek at the October kit I'm giving you a look at two stamps (image and sentiment) and the sweet little tree dies. I started off by watercoloring my background with liquid watercolors in Pink and Indigo. Then I splattered the background with white metallic paint to give it a wintery look.

Next, I heat embossed the silhouette stamp in black embossing powder. I love how bold it looks against the background. Before stamping I did make sure that the stamp was placed in the center of the square I cut from a piece of white cardstock.

I stamped my sentiment using my Misti in black ink onto the card face. Then I added foam adhesive to the back of the panel and adhered it to the watercolored background. I die cut some little Christmas trees from white sparkle paper and added them to the bottom of my winter scene. I finished my card off by adding a few clear sequins and attaching the whole thing to a top-folding card base.
