Last Monday I told you’d I’d share some samples I’ve made from the September Close to My Heart Special and then the week got away from me. So today I have those cards for you.
My first card is the traditional use of the stamp set from the card kit. Layering the flowers with different inks makes a beautiful card.
My next card was stamped in Memento black ink and colored in. I really like the large sentiment on the front of the card. Inside I layered the flower in the more traditional way.
My third card is a completely different use of the card base, taking a pattern from the Beary Christmas card kit and turning it into a fun fold card.
It is lots of fun playing with this fun fold card kit. One of the tricks is really folding those score lines. Grab your bone folder and you’ll have success.
Thanks for being patient I hope you enjoy these cards.
September’s National Stamping Month Card Kit From the Heart gives you all the supplies to make 12 beautiful interactive cards including an exclusive E sized stamp set.
I was recently asked “what colors should I use to stamp my From the Heart cards?” Although the choice is strictly yours – you can stamp in black and use watercolors or our ShinHan Touch Twin markers or any combination of our exclusive inks, however the sample artwork prepared by our art department used Slate, Fern, New England Ivy, Thistle, Blossom, Pomegranate, Pixie, Saffron, Canary, and Eggplant.
I hope that you will enjoy putting your card kits together. Remember that you are not limited to just use this set as designed – you will find many uses for the interactive cards and stamp sets separately. I will be posting some additional artwork this week I hope you’ll come back and see.
Don’t forget that this special is only available through the end of September or while supplies last – you also have the ability to purchase both the stamp set and refill cards separately at full retail price.
