Did you know that if you use the Stampin' Pierce Mat under your projects when you use the photopolymer stamps that it will give you a clean crisp image every time? Try it out next time you are using these stamps!
This post is about the multi-striped card in the kit. The instructions have you inserting the striped (pre-printed) paper into the card front. Then you stamp on a small or large banner and adhering it to the front. Then you add a few great gold epoxy hearts and you are done! I did change the ink to be the Memento Black on this vs the Mint Macaroon in the instructions. I was afraid my pad would bite the dust during a class and I like the black as it coordinates with the printed doodle around the card!
You can also change the placement of the gold hearts for a different look.
I also tried stamping directly on the paper and it shows up great when using the Memento Black ink.
Finally, I thought a photo would go great in the front of this card. Just cut it down to 5 1/4 x 4 and adhere to the card. Be careful when assembling though so you don't have to move it. I did and had to cover the adhesive that got on the photo with those little hearts! And this photo makes me smile so I just stamped "Happy" on the front and thought I'd send it for any number of reasons! (Photo provided by Heidi Hagman Photography).
While the kit is on backorder until mid-July, I still think it's a great purchase for either a gift or for yourself. You can make cards fitting any occasion with it and you can use the stamp set to make other cards as you'll see this weekend.
