National Stamping Day Celebration--Our Create Kindness Kit

Close To My Heart 
has done it again with this wonderful kit 
designed so you can spread a little kindness. 
Get everything you see here for $46.95 by going to the
little shopping cart at the top of my blog during the month of September only..  Add a new Shimmer brush Z3293 for $4.95 or the twine (see below)  and you will qualify for the 
terrific Stamp of the Month for only $5!
Here is what I did with this kit:

 Yes, I did use our wonderful Shin Han markers to color the images but here are other special touches I put on:
As is so easy to do with our My Acrylix stamps, I cut apart the word and the flower on four of the stamps in the kit.  I stamped the flower bunch on the envelope flap and on the circles included.  I colored in the images and then on the circle, I made holes around a smaller circle with my pokey tool and connected the holes with a journaling pen to make "faux stitching."  For the color coordinated knot, I simply colored the Whisper Thick Twine Z3093, $3.95 with a Shin Han Marker I had used to color and VOILA!!!! a matching embellishment! 
I stamped the four saying stamps on the outside of the envelopes and colored in the one word with our watercolor pencils, no water.  (The markers will bleed through.)  If you order your Create Kindness kit from me, I will send you a little package with some extras so you can jazz up your cards too!  
September 17th, Saturday is National Stamping Day.  I hope you will find some extra time to make something to bless someone else.  Gives you a good feeling all the way down to your toes, 
ya know?
