If you have been visiting me for a while, you are probably thinking, “does she own another stamp set?!?” Yes!! I do. But, I have been having such a wonderful time playing with this Close To My Heart National Stamping Month limited release set, From the Heart. I have not really stamped with many other sets, other than to incorporate them here and there like this Joyful Tidings set from CTMH’s Holiday Expressions.
Didn’t these turn out wonderfully? This idea was first inspired by another CTMH consultant and I’ve seen many variations. In fact, I made a cheerful birthday card here, using the From the Heart stamp set.
Because I was looking for a holiday look, I didn’t have to use a lot of different inks. Here I used Fern, New England Ivy, a tiny bit of Sweet Leaf (on the top card) and Ruby. I did add some sparkle with my CTMH gold shimmer brush inside the open words found in the Joyful Tidings sentiments.
Want the supplies to re-create these cards? The From the Heart set retires on Sep 30th and while it may be available while supplies last – I just don’t know!
