Fabulous Fonts ~ Storybook Alphabet

This week's theme on the Heart 2 Heart Challenges blog is "Fabulous Fonts."  With so many different alphabet stamp sets now available from CTMH, there are many fonts to choose from.   

This 5"x7" card has a Black base, with a White Daisy front to highlight a series of bright colors.  This month's stamp-of-the-month is Storybook Alphabet and includes a fun and whimsical font.  Using five of the more recent colors that Close To My Heart has introduced: Lemon, Tangerine, Emerald, Pansy, and Raspberry, letter stamps from the Storybook Alphabet set were used to create the word "hello."  A thin strip was cut from each of the five colors to create a background behind each letter.  This card shows a quick and easy way to create a simple card using some cardstock and colored pencils.    

The original inspiration for this card was a Happy Birthday card created by Laura Beacham.  However, I think her card has a much nicer overall effect and detailed finish than my "hello" card.  This is Laura's inspiration card:

  1. I love what you did with this alphabet - it is always great to see cards created using alphabet stamps! The adventure palette of colours (especially the bright ones you used) are my favourites. Great work :)


Thanks for your comments! It is always nice to hear some feedback. :)
