A Close To My Heart consultant was saying the “trouble” with the new From The Heart stamp set CTMH released for National Stamping Month was that there were so MANY possibilities. I laughed and said, “that’s a good problem!”. There are indeed endless color combinations and ways to arrange these blooms…and boy am I having fun exploring them all!
Here is the two sheets of stamps that are included in the National Stamping Month From the Heart stamp set…you can also upgrade and get a gold foiled set of cards to make this kit even more special!
For the card above I used the sheet of solid images and then did some 2 and 3-step stamping. There really are no mistakes – even if you are in bifocals like myself, or stamp hurriedly (again, like me!) – it tends to look really good when you are finished. I included the Thanks sentiment from CTMH’s Feel So Blessed Stamp of the Month. I made a few cards while I had all my inks out and open – each one turned out unique!
Then I looked at one of the stamped images I had of a sentiment and flower outline (I had been coloring in the flowers with copics, colored pencils and watercolors up until now) … and I began to wonder if the solid flower images in the set would fit inside the outline flower images????
They did!! I really love the look because you can see it’s not a perfect fit – but it does achieve a wonderful look. I shared this on our CTMH facebook page and it was a big hit. So, if you are really short on time (or inspiration – because hey, that happens sometimes!) then this is the card for you. It’s actually one of my favorites in the end.
