Welcome to this month’s blog hop, whether you’ve started here or joined from the wonderful Kim you’re in for a treat because this month we are Cool for Kits (yes I know, I’m sorry you’re now humming that in your head – ah well all in a good cause). We decided to showcase the amazing kits in the Annual Catalogue from Stampin’ Up!, either the kits themselves or using the stamps or elements in different ways. I decided to do a Product Spotlight on the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set. The kit comes with the tin and enough supplies to make 16 cards, but you have to add the stamp set to it – but it really, really is worth it. Last year’s Tin of Cards stamp set (which has carried over) must be one of my most used sets, and I can see the Designer Tin of Cards stamp set being the same this year!
Cool for Kits
The kit itself is beautiful and the stamps work really well with the four card designs, but I wanted to show how they could also be used in other ways, because there is a lot more to this set of stamps!
Designer Tin of Cards stamp set
This card uses the Thanks to You against a back drop of flourishes (the scallop circle is retired, but could be replaced by the new layered circles – which I didn’t have at the time!).
Next I decided to use the Sending Love sentiment with a die cut heart from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits dies as it seemed to sum up the whole feeling of the sentiment.
A card doesn’t has to have a lot of flourishes to be stunning, sometimes just a few extra bits can really bring it up a level – the sun behind, the heart in front, the ribbon banner, and the new Metallic heart shape over the heart in the sentiment helps to tie the card and colours together.
