National Stamping Month - Create Kindness Kit

Welcome to September! This has been designated as National Stamping Month, something I love each year.
Create Kindness Cards
This year Close To My Heart is offering an amazing special that has become my favorite. It's called Create Kindness and how kind it will be to share the cards it makes with those around us. The kit is especially good for someone who has limited supplies or a novice, just beginning to stamp. I purchased the entire kit but parts of it can also be purchased individually. You can see the contents here.

The kit makes 24 cards that are 3" x 3." I had fun making 8 of those cards that I'm showing you here below. That size is perfect to add to gifts or to set on someone's desk at work.  I've also used the kit to make larger cards. Come back on August 7th to see our blog hop and my gift card holders made with the kit contents. Here are the first 8 that I created by adding some small circular mats cut out using the Cricut.

The kit includes 6 each of the four card background designs in the Adventure colors. It comes inside an organizer for the small M-sized stamps and includes the 1.75" circles, the envelopes, and four different flower stamps, four inside sentiment stamps, along with a 2" acrylic block and a mini stamp pad of Archival Black. I colored the images and sentiments using ShinHan Touch Twin markers in coordinating colors. The background mats are 2" scalloped circles (from our previous punch) and a variety of 2.5" circular shapes from our various Cricut cartridges. If you have the Cricut Explore you are welcome to use my cut file here. Our new Cricut cartridge, Flower Market, has so many wreath shapes, I wanted to try using some on these cards. I cut 3 of everything using Adventure cardstocks so I could also use them on my larger cards.

Here are some close ups:

This kit is only available in the month of September and only as supplies last, so don't wait long to get it if you're interested. Here are the kit contents and links:
