I'm an avid reader. Always have been. When I saw the stamp set for the September 2014 Card Kit I knew it was going to be a favorite kit! This card features only components from the kit and with the exception of the MFT Blueprints 15 Die Collection and some Avery Elle Pigment Inks and embossing powders.
I die cut the black cardstock in the kit using the stitched rectangle from the MFT Blueprints 15 Die Collection, then I die cut another rectangle fromt he kraft cardstock and die cut it again using the uneven rectangle from the same die set.
Starting from the bottom shelf and working up, I stamped the components from the SSS To Thine Own Self Stamp Set to build a "wall" of shelves filled with boxes, books and plants. The pigment inks work great on the darker cardstock since the inks don't absorb into the paper and lighten. Pigment inks will retain their vibrancy! Once I finished stampig the design I added a greeting below the bottom shelf using SSS Black Ink.
I added white detail to the books with my favorite white glaze pen.
I stamped the "True Story" phrase using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the greeting with white and red embossing powders.
I adhered the stamped piece to the black rectangle and popped the whole thing up on the cream colored card base using foam adhesive.
