Monochromatic Fall Card

I'm sure most of my blog readers know by now that I recently subscribed to the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero Kit.  Today I am pairing the kit with some old and retired stamps.. I love to mix old and new products!

                    Ranger Ink Applicator Kit // May Arts Jute Twine // Neenah Card Stock 
       (Retired Products: Whimsy Stamps Background and Borders, Stampin Up Looks Like Spring)

I created an inky background withTea Dye distress ink (wiped and patted the card stock over an ink puddle on my craft mat). Then I stamped the small branch (part of the Hero Arts MMH September Kit),  argyle type stamp (retired from Stampin Up) and the script stamp (retired from Whimsy Stamps) onto the inked background. The maple leaf branch was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Ink on white Neenah, cut out with the matching die from the kit and then inked with the same distress ink. It was then adhered onto the background with glue dots. A button and some May Arts Jute Twine finish off the card. The sentiment is also part of the kit, stamped with Memento ink on a piece of card stock inked with tea dye ink.

The September kit is currently still available while supplies last. And there is also still time to subscribe to the My Monthly Hero kits, in order to start your subscription with the October kit (you would not receive the September kit with the subscription). I've had a lot of fun with this kit and looking forward to the next one already! Maybe it'll be Christmas themed? We will see....
