More of a Good Thing

When it comes to chocolate cake and twine, being “extra thick” is always a good thing. Whether it is adding an earthly touch to a card or tying off a bag of goodies with flair, the Close to my Heart twine knows how to keep it together in the card above on the right. Give it a try on your next project!

Small Stamps, Big Impact

The stamp sets featured in the cards above perfectly fit inside the circle of the Doodled Designs stamp set. Add the star, heart, dots, or arrow for a hand drawn effect inspired by an artist’s sketchbook. It is the perfect doodled touch!


Ink Tones

For a distinct stamping style, try using the base and shade technique. A stamp set as illustratred in the cards above are designed specifically to work with this technique. Simply stamp the solid image, or the “base” in one color, and then stamp the outline image, the “shade” in a different color. The results will be a treat for the eyes!


For a sparkle that is sweet, frost your projects with Close to my Heart Shimmer Trim! Create twinkling backdrops and borders, like those on the left card above or simply use it to add a dusting of bling to finish off projects. Whether it is sugar, diamonds, or snowflakes, white Shimmer Trim is the perfect color to create that crystalized look you you have been wishing for.

Less Is More

Let your stamps shine with simple designs! The simplicity of these cards gives the stamp its moment in the limelight.
