My Monthly Hero December 2016 Kit
I’ve created a couple of cards using both the main kit’s stamps, dies & gorgeous foil & metallic papers.
My Monthly Hero December 2016 KitFor this first card I embossed several images from the main kit’s stamp set in white. Then using nesting circle dies I die cut them out and popped them up to create a colorful, dimension background. I used the “party” die cut for the sentiment.

  16. Saw the theme of this kit and had to come see what you’d done with it. FABULOUS. I just love those rainbow circles for each little image. Definitely a party on a card. And those golden sunbursts – whoa. Classy.

  17. You never disappoint! I love how you used each of the stamps, the colors, the dimension… I can’t say enough. Lovely, lovely cards!

  18. You make the most colorful and lovely cards! Love both of these. I can’t wait to get my kit and create. Thanks so much. Happy Holidays!

  19. Your first card is so colorful. Love it. Also really like the classic style of the second card. It’s really hard to pick a favorite. Thanks for showing us how the sunburst die cut looks and for sharing your creativity!

  20. I am never surprised at how beautiful your cards and your colors are. I just love your use of color. I especially LOVE that dot card. So pretty. LOVE IT!

  21. Thanks for using/sharing the sunburst design. I hadn’t paid attention to that part of the die set before I saw your card. Love it! And it was very clever to emboss the party icons on different size and color circles for your other card. Great designs!

  22. Awesome cards! Definitely are beautiful and fun cards to invite friends to celebrate together! Thank you for sharing!

  23. Laura I love your cards again just amazing I love what you do with some of the smaller stamps and color and that starburst die or half starburst is so cool thank you

  24. Great use of the stamps for the background and in cheery fun hues! Thank You for sharing along in this awesome hop and for a chance at winning a gorgeous kit!

  25. Love these cards – thanks for sharing! QUESTION… I’ve been trying to figure out how you cut the half-circle around the sunburst die, since it looks like some of the longer rays extend outside the circle. Is that a trick of the angle or do you have a secret I should steal? ๐Ÿ˜‰
