I've got some exciting news to share with you today! As part of our efforts to Stamp Out Breast Cancer, we have designed a Printable Journaling and Card-Making card kit. The best news... for the month of October, you can download this kit for FREE.
FIGHT LIKE A GIRL PRINTABLE KIT
The Fight Like A Girl Printable kit includes six 3" x 4" cards that you can use in your scrapbook or on your cards.
Have you tried our Printable Kits before? If not, they're REALLY easy to use! To get your free kit, you'll need to visit our website and "order" this item. Once you have placed your order, you will receive an email with a link to the file. (If you do not receive the email, be sure to check your SPAM or Junk mail folder.) The file that you will receive is a PDF file that can be easily printed from any computer.
For GREAT results, you may want to try the following:
- Experiment with different types of cardstock. Our Sugar (white) cardstock works great and so does Matte Photo Paper. I LOVE Canon's PIXMA Photo Paper (MP-101)
- Try different Printer settings. Most printers have several settings to choose from: Normal, Fine and Quality (or something similar depending on your printer). The colors and results will vary by print setting and printer.
- Do your solid color blocks look streaky? It may be time to refresh your ink supply (follow the instructions that came with your printer). With an InkJet printer, you may need to do a "head alignment" or a head cleaning". These will correct most printer issues and can make a big difference in the quality of your printout... especially if it's been a while since these were done.
The cards in this kit can be printed and used on their own or you can combine them with any other stamps you may own. I decided to use my Fight Like A Girl stamp set to use since we're giving this set away for FREE ($3 s&h USA, $7 s&h INTL) this month.
For this first card, I used the HOPE stamp with the pink paint chip card from the kit. I used my stamp positioner to control the placement of the stamp and also to re-stamp the words when necessary. I started at the BOTTOM of the card and stamped the word HOPE twice to get a crisp black image. I then inked up my stamp and moved up to the next color bar. I stamped the word once. I did NOT ink my stamp for the next bar or the top bar to have a faded look.
I quite liked the look of just the word HOPE stamped on the colored background but felt like it needed something. I stamped the Ribbon image from the Fight Like A Girl stamp set on A Muse Studio Vellum Paper and embossed it with clear powder. Once it was cool to touch, I used the Ribbon die to cut out the image.
TIP! It can be tricky to get a good impression on vellum so if you use your stamp positioner you are able to stamp it a few times for a great impression.
I then had the idea to cut the ribbon die out of the paint chip card and was very excited with the results. I love paint chips and have been collecting them to find the perfect paint color for our bathroom so maybe I'm a little too fond of paint chips at the moment? What do you think?
For this next card, I also combined two of the printable cards - the heart and STRONG cards. This is an uplifting card that can be given for lots of reasons!
I used one of the Word Window dies to cut out the word STRONG. Love this!
I hope you've enjoyed today's cards using the Fight Like A Girl Printable Kit. I will be back tomorrow with more cards.
