Eres Fabulosa Note Card


A lot of the stamp companies are offering monthly craft kits, limited edition items. They offer subscriptions (you don’t know what is coming to you until the products are revealed), or you can try to buy one of the sets on your own (it may go out of stock, if it is popular). I am not the target customer for monthly kits – LOL – I don’t have that much disposable income!

I have only purchased one or two of these monthly kits.

But, this month (April 2018), the Hero Arts My Monthly Kit was a MUST HAVE for me. The fiesta theme is so cute! The image above is from an add on set, called Shake Your Bones. A set full of Dia de los Muertos images!!

I scrambled to make this card Friday morning, and get it photographed before I gave it to Offspring3.

The sentiment means “you are fabulous”. This character is a version of La Calavera Catrina.

And…I don’t normally take my photos in direct sunlight. But, I was impatient, and I truly wanted PROOF that we had direct sunlight! Friday and Saturday were gorgeous sunny days. We are back to chilly & wet weather.

Supplies: Stamps – Hero Arts, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Stampin’ Up! Soft Sky, inks – Copics BG18, R29, Y18, VersaFine Onyx Black, dies – Hero Arts (dancer), My Favorite Things (stitched rounded rectangle), Simon Says Stamp (banner), embossing powder – Filigree Fine Art Powder clear.

  1. This is my kind of card. This is such a colorful celebration that takes a unique view of something people in the States view in a much more somber way. I may have to look for this.

    • Thanks, Miss Hammie! I did not learn anything about Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) until the Offspring were in middle school Spanish class (and I actually took 6 years of Spanish – middle, high, college – back in the day). LOVE the whole thing. Offspring3 took me to see the animated film, Coco, back in January – it really brought it all into focus.
