Basics Fundamentals www.maz.closetomyheart.com.auOut of all the Fundamental Paper Suites, the Basic Fundamentals are my all time favourite. What I love about the Fundamentals for starters is how much paper you get 24 – 12″ × 12″ sheets (2 each of 12 double-sided designs. Each side has the same design but in a different colour tone – making it so super easy to co-ordinate with with other paper packs or just with it self.

A Little Bit of Pun -December Stamp of the Month www.maz.closetomyheart.com.au
This month’s stamp of the month is the cutest stamp set called A Little Bit of Pun. I love the little icons & the funny puns that go with each image & I have had a lot of fun creating with this stamp set. You can get this stamp set for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75 or more on Close to My Heart Product.

Today I am sharing with you a couple of cards I created with two of the images.

First up – We MERMAID to be friends – I thought this cute little mermaid’s tail appearing up around the sea of circles was cute & that gold sea grass – is actually one of the gold foil accents from the Better Together Complements cut into pieces. The circles were cut using the circle thin cuts. I gathered some of the fundamentals papers together along with plain card stock that I stamped onto with the In the Background stamp. all together they made a fun little sea ocean. The tails were coloured in with ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers and highlighted with the Clear Shimmer Brush.

Next I played with You’re A Gem of A Friend. I stamped one gem with the saying in Pewter Exclusive Inks™, this allowed me to plan out my random background of just the Gem image in Heather Exclusive Inks™. I filled in the spaces with the small heart images. I added one of the silver foil borders from the Better Together Complements along with some silver shimmer trim. Stamped the gem again but this time embossed it with Ranger™ Silver Super Fine Embossing Powder & fussy cut it out & attached with a foam dot. I added a little extra shine with the Clear Shimmer Brush.

Through the Year November Stamp of the Month Through the Year—November Stamp of the Month is a fab stamp set with Months & cute little icons that you can pair with the months, just perfect to decorate a calendar or a Birthday Card holder or even add to your planner. You can get this stamp set for $27 or for just $7.50 when you spend $75 or more on Close to My Heart Product.

I thought the little icons would make great backgrounds for cards so that is what I am sharing with you today.

The images were stamped in VersaMark™ Ink Pad & embossed with Ranger™ White Super Fine Embossing Powder. I then sponged over the backgrounds with the Exclusive Inks™ Stamp Pads & spritz with water to get a mottled background effect.
