Hello stampers. I was thrilled to find two refill kits from Grown With Kindness in my paper cabinet. Now I could design a sampler that I had brewing in my head. I really love the stamp set that came in this Paper Pumpkin as well as the gorgeous paper in the kit. The paper/cardstock was meant to layer on cards but with some creativity I came up with a different plan! Here is what I made. It is a 12 x 12 sampler in a very inexpensive frame.
You could definitely use different paper for the background, I was playing with about five different ones but I settled on this one because it brings out the pool party colour in the cups. I have a neat trick for the saying on the bottom left square. Let’s take a closeup look.
I stamped the saying from Grown With Kindness in Fresh Fig and since ink takes longer to dry on vellum I was able to clear emboss to give a nice raised image that is also more intense. I sponged Tombow liquid adhesive on the back of the vellum so that it doesn’t show. Fresh fig is retiring in a few days, so if you need any cardstock or ink refills be sure to order now! Just click on the images at the end of my blog post and then you will go straight to my online store. Live in Canada and have never ordered online before? No worries, it is totally safe. Just click on Create Account on the top left of the screen. You will be prompted on what to do next. If you choose to use the host code TXE4JNCY I would be most grateful.
If you are interested in a kit, let me know. Maybe I will have time to offer this as an in person class as well. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a super day.
