CTMH's wonderful products .....'Falling for You'......  are available exclusively throughout the duration of our Holiday Expressions Catalogue only or while supplies last....  The paper pack is beautiful with great colour combinations and beautiful patterns. There is a card kit, Scrapbooking kit and matching stamp sets too. I focused on the cardmaking stamp set with matching thincuts. I just love leaves and all the Autumn colours. We don't experience many autumn colours here in Perth Australia but I do love them.There are 

7 individual image stamps in this set and 7 accompanying sentiments.....so they are just wonderful and can be added to any project. This stamp set and paper has so many possibilities so check out all the posts for loads of ideas for cards and scrapbook pages.

Sample from the cardmaking kit


The basics fundamentals papers and inks were used to make a simple generic card with neutral tones and no sentiment....make it your own!

Just stamp and colour!

Stamping the images onto a masked section of white cardstock provided a great canvas to create. I stamped with Espresso ink and coloured in using the Shin Han markers. The artwork is mounted on black cardstock and then on the patterned leaf sheet from the 'Falling for you' paper pack. I like this!...even if I do say so myself.

This stamp set has so many possibilities so check out all the posts for loads of ideas for cards and scrapbook pages.


I sat down to play and I must admit....I love feathers and this stamp leaned towards colouring so the shin Han markers feature too. I am always looking for thanks, thank you cards so it is just simple but effective. Simple stamping on Linen cardstock with Momento ink and coloured with light grey and tender pink Shin Han markers. Shimmer added with a clear shimmer pen with bashful re-inker. A little thin 3D foam lifts the coloured cut out feathers.

Some additional playing with other colours and different sentiments from the stamp set gave a different look. 


Some background stamping with the Splash of Colour D1733 adds some
texture to the background

ENJOY!!

I love these stamp sets. They are a good size and work perfectly for an album page but they also work well on a card. They partner well with D1714 Hello.


The word stamps have some lovely fine images to colour in the words. I partnered the colouring with background stamping in similar colours using the flower images that are part of this set.



ENJOY!!
