Oh joy....Coordinating Stamp Sets & Thin Cuts Dies!!

Have you heard the news? Close To My Heart now has COORDINATING DIES for four of our "brand new" stamp sets in our "brand new" Seasonal Expressions! I ordered three of our coordinating stamp & die sets, but because of the Holiday's I just have not had time to play with them. This week I have been cleaning out and organizing my scrapbook room. It was a bad mistake to clean off my work station first instead of last. Once my desk was clean, I lost all of my motivation to continue cleaning and pulled out one of the sets and had fun playing. Oh man....I still am amazed that we now offer both the four coordinating dies and stamps sets and our five Cricut cartridges and fifteen coordinating stamp sets!

Please enjoy my first card I made today using our new "Spring Critters" stamp set, coordinating Thin Cuts dies, and our Zoe paper collection. I have also included a picture of the actual stamps and dies to drool over! lol I love these adorable critters and already have several sketches made to use them in other projects.

If you would like to own a set of these stamps and coordinating dies, I would love to order them for you. You may order directly from me at and your order will be delivered to your doorstep generally within seven days. Don't forget to click on the option of receiving a FREE copy of our new Seasonal Expressions with your order!

Close To My Heart ShinHan TouchTwin Marker Color Chart

Have you seen our ShinHan TouchTwin Marker Color Chart? A super cool tool to enable you to recreate our Close To My Heart ink colors using a blend of our alcohol markers. This is a great reference chart to print out and store with your Close To My Heart markers for future projects. Close To My Heart has done all of the homework for us and made our joy of coloring much easier!

To use this chart, punch out a 1" cardstock circle from the Close To My Heart color you wish to re-create using markers. Attach the punched cardstock circle over the first blank circle of a pair on the sheet. Referencing the formula listed, color in the remaining blank circle in the pair using your ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ markers. Currently Pixie is the only color that does not have a recommended color match.

Here is a list of our current twenty-nine alcohol markers available. Just as a reminder, you need to use either our Timber Brown or Tuxedo Black Memento Ink when using our alcohol markers. Our water based dye inks and StazOn solvent inks are not recommended. Enjoy!

Happy Stamping............Cheryl

Happy Scrappin & Card Making!! Cheryl
