And don’t forget to check the add-on products !

For this hop I am sharing with you a card I made with the kit and two add-ons : the Stripe Stencil and the Mini Hearts Bold Prints rubber stamp.

First, I blended water reactive pink inks on a piece of white cardstock. I splattered some inks and water on it. Once it was dry I stamped one of the sentiments from the kit with a brown inkpad.

Then, I used the die to make the front part of the flat matchbox on my inked panel.

After that, I took a piece of kraft cardstock from the kit and I stamped the Mini Hearts Bold Prints rubber stamp on it with a brown inkpad. I used the bottom part of the flat matchbox die on it.

To make the matches I used the two dies from the kit. I cut them from kraft cardstock and some leftovers of my pink inked panel. To give them dimension and a glossy look I used a clear glaze on the top of the matches. I let them dry overnight. The next day, I fussy cut the top of the glazed matches and mixed and matched them with other pink and brown matches. I also fussy cut two brown hearts to use them as embellishments.

Finally, for the base of my card I cut two rectangles, a 3″ x 5.5″ onto brown cardstock and a 2 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ onto the Azaela cardstock from the kit. I used the Stripe Stencil add-on with brown ink on my pink panel. I matted and layered them and glued my matchbox, matches and hearts on it.

Et voilà !

Don’t forget to check Meg’s beautiful project !

May the craft be with you !
