Have you heard the big news?!?!?! We are thrilled to present an all new kit series from the fabulous Kimberly Crawford! Just wait until you see all the gorgeous details!
First a few general notes about Sincerely Yours! Kimberly says...
"It will feature products that will be classy, yet simple. I want you to make beautiful cards, but also send them. Send a small piece of you, your creativity, and your heart. Over the past few months, my perspective has changed and in my last couple blog posts, I have touched upon how important it is to send cards, to build deeper connections with friends and family."
(If you want to read an incredibly touching post Kimberly recently wrote regarding how letter writing became even closer to her heart after her grandmother passed away, check it out HERE.)
"The products from Sincerely Yours are products that I would want to use. Things that I would grab to create a card. These are cards that I would want to make. A view of trends, images, and colors that I am in love with. I am thrilled to be sharing a piece of myself with each of you! My hope is that these products become something you not only want, but realize that you need."
The Modern + Marbled Kit is designed to create classy and elegant thank you cards using the trendy look of marbling. A single stamped image creates the look of marbling, while the gold gilding flakes have you adding a touch of shine to the rest of the kit contents. With a beautiful brush script, stamp or die cut the words “thank you.” Add more gratitude to your thanks with the small sentiment images. Stamp, trim, and add them as a finishing touch to your card. Give the hexagon die-cut images a geometric look with the straight-line stamp. Or use the hexagon dies to create tiled backgrounds by stamping them with the marble image. Customize the envelopes in the kit with the marble stamp or the gilding flakes. Close the envelope with a self-adhesive wax seal, designed exclusively for this kit. The sincerity of your thanks will be elevated with the creative options in this kit!
The Modern + Marbled Kit contains:
Modern + Marbled stamp set + label
Modern + Marbled die collection
White envelopes (20)
Custom Fern Wax Seals (5)
Nuvo Gilding Flakes
Nuvo Medium Glue Pen
Take your Modern + Marbled Kit to the next level with this Color Basics Add-on. If you are just beginning your paper crafting collection or perhaps gifting the kit to a stamping friend, this provides them with a nice array of basics to create a multitude of projects. Kimberly selected these colors especially for this kit!
Check out this video that Kimberly put together!
And now a closer look at the individual products!
The stamps included in this kit are just simple yet versatile and offer a multitude of uses, exactly what Kimberly envisioned as an overall theme for her Sincerely Yours.
The straight line can be used to turn the hexagon into more of a geometric object. Consider using it to create a striped background, or other backgrounds also. The stripe also works well for adding a pop of color along the edge of your envelope flaps.
Of course, the large marbling image steals the show. With just a single impression you get all of the depth and detail of real marbling. You can use multiple colors on a single background, as shown here. Used with Perfect Pearls for metallic tones will be stunning. Tone-on-tone looks will be especially lovely!
Some measurements for you:
- Marbled background 4.2” x 2”
- Straight line 5.5” x 0.1”
- Thank you 3.4” x 1.5”
- "For your kindness" sentiment 2.3” x 0.2”
- "Ever so much" sentiment 1.7” x 0.2”
- "All I can say" sentiment 1.7” x 0.2”
- "It meant so much" sentiment 2.1” x 0.2”
- "For everything" sentiment 1.9” x 0.2”
The die collection, just like the stamp set, gives you basic essentials that you can use in dozens of ways.
The multiple sizes of hexagons can be used to create layered mats, backgrounds, card windows, frames, tags, focal points and so much more! The large hexagon die can accommodate the large script "thank you" in both stamp and die form for lots of possibilities.
- Large hexagon 4” (center point to center point) x 3.4” (center cut line to center cut line)
- Medium hexagon 3” x 2.6”
- Small hexagon 1.6” x 1.4”
- Thank you 3.3” x 1.4”
Kimberly has also hand-selected some beautiful accompaniments for the kit that you can get multiple uses from! We just know you will love using every single one of them!
The special glue pen included has a chisel tip that makes it easy to add details to your marbled projects with the included gilding flakes. The glue comes out slightly blue. When it is ready to take the flakes, it will be milky white. Add the glue to the edges of the envelopes, a few details in the actual marbling, create a border on a die-cut hexagon or even cover the entire sentiment die-cut. This glue pen makes it a breeze to add a gold foil look almost anywhere you imagine!
As shown above, these gilding flakes work magically with the included glue pen. Once the applied glue turns milky white, apply the flakes. You can use your finger, but a circular motion with a soft paint brush or stipple brush works best.
It adds such a special look and you will be able to get so much mileage out of the jar of flakes included in the kit. You will want to add it to everything!
The Modern + Marbled Kit also includes 20 of these high quality white A2 envelopes. They accommodate the most common card size and offer a nice long flap that looks distinguished and boutique. The large flap also offers the perfect canvas for adding stamped marbling details to coordinate with the card inside.
It is special details like this that make a recipient feel that tinge of excitement when they open a letter that has just arrived in their mailbox.
You can seal your envelopes with these one-of-a-kind self-adhesive wax seals. They measure about 1" in diameter so they are perfectly scaled for A2 envelopes or even card embellishments. There are 5 seals included with each kit. Featuring a custom designed fern by Kimberly, the soft antique gold finish is a wonderful complement to the gilding flakes. Kimberly opted for her fern image because it is generally known as a symbol of sincerity. The time and thought she invested into every detail of this kit just shines!
As noted at the top of this post, Kimberly also wanted it to make her kits a great place to start for stampers just starting to build their collection and even gifts. Because of this there is also a special Color Basics Add-on Kit available. The color scheme Kimberley is something she hand-selected to complement the elements of the main kit. With the add-on kit you receive a handful of 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock sheets as well as three 1" dye ink cubes in our signature colors.
