September is National Stamping Month
To celebrate Close to My Heart are launching the #30yearsofhappy Stamping incentive. With every purchase of $30 of Close to My Heart Stamps in September you get one of the #30yearsofhappy! C-sized stamp sets FREE.
(yes I did get excited by the idea of these stamp sets being FREE).
I have made some cute little samples using the stamp set and wanted to share with you. I will probably keep making them and posting them cause I might be a little addicted to my new blog. If you'd like daily ideas using this set follow Close to My Heart on Facebook for all of September they are posting daily updates using the hashtag #30yearsofhappy.
Here is a cute card that I made using random stamping on a 2.25 inch x 5.5 inch piece of white daisy cardstock. I used Thistle, Lagoon, Gypsy and Canary Inks with Black ink being for the "Fabulous" to tie in the Black Shimmer Trim. For those following along at home remember random stamping looks better in sets of 3's, and I followed this principle with all the colours except Canary which I used an odd number of them, remembering to go over the edge.
To put the card together I used the 5.5 X 4.25 inch Colonial White Cards & Envelopes.
I covered the card front with Kraft Cardstock cut to the same size as the card (5.5" X 4.25") stuck the white card stock onto the Kraft and then added 5.5 inch sections of black shimmer trim.
I also made a page border using the similar random stamping technique on 2"x2" squares of white cardstock. I used the Kraft cardstock cut at 1.25" x 12". To give some dimention I used some Durables Triangle Studs
again in sets of 3's to keep that "pleasing to the eye" look.
