December My Monthly Hero Blog Hop


You’re in the right place for the Hero Arts Blog hop. Today we are celebrating the release of the December My Monthly Hero Kit. This kit is packed full of everything PARTY!

I’ve created a fun Celebration card using a few of the add-ons that coordinate with the kit. I couldn’t resist the Martini die set!!


I started by creating a background using the Celebration Word Stencil on a piece of watercolor card stock. Then I used the Martini die to create a mini shaker piece with brightly painted fruit.


I filmed the process of how this card came together, you can view it below or on our YouTube channel HERE.

The kit add-ons SA091 Celebration Words Stencil, CM123 Birthday Celebration, and DI341 Martini Fancy Die are available for sale in the Simon Says Stamp store.
