I love alphabet stamps and I cannot lie! And they are my favourite stamps that I'll be sharing with you today! 

That's right, if you've been along for the ride with me this month, you know that I have been blogging about my favourite stamp sets to celebrate Stampaganza 2016!

Don't forget, this month as part of our Stampaganza 2016 promotion, when you purchase two of our gorgeous stamp sets, you can choose another stamp set (of equal or lesser value) FREE! Yes, FREE! That's 3 stamp sets for the price of 2.  How exciting!

Alphabet stamps are the bomb! You can use any combination of letters to create any words, sentiments or headings for your cards, pages, tags, planner or other crafting projects- and you never RUN OUT! You can mix and match letters from different alphabet stamps to create interesting and eye-catching focus points on your work and you can use different colour combinations to make those letters pop!

Close To My Heart has a huge assortment of My Acrylix Alphabet stamp sets available in a variety of fun, fabulous and funky fonts, but today I'm going to share four projects created with just a selection of them- 1. Jennifer's Hand, 2. Marquee Uppercase, 3. Typography, 4. Etched, 5. Keyboard Uppercase and 6. Inked.

The first project, a 5 1⁄2" x 4 1⁄4" Congrats! Card is featured on page 107 of the Annual Inspirations Idea Book and is created using the Etched and Jennifer's Hand Alphabet stamp sets.  The Etched stamp set has been used to create the stamped background and Jennifer's Hand has been used for the embossed sentiment at the front of the card.

This adorable 12" x 12" Layout "You’re Off to Great Places" features on page 106 of the Annual Inspirations Idea Book.  It is a fabulous example of how you can use a number of stamp sets on the same project to create a fun and cohesive look.  This layout features 5 different stamp sets but they work together so beautifully!

This sweet 4 1⁄4" x 5 1⁄2" Alphabet Card is on page 104 of the Annual Inspirations Idea Book and features the Typography stamp set. I just love the contrast between the Whisper background stamping and the pop of Poppy for the sentiment.

X5779 Poppy Cardstock

Finally, here are two projects that would be super-cute additions to your next birthday bash!
This simple 4 1⁄4" x 5 1⁄2" Thanks a Bunch Card above features on page 107 of the Annual Inspirations Idea Book and includes letters from both the Inked and Etched alphabet stamp sets.  I just love the way the individual letters from the Inked stamp set can be stamped to look like they are joined into a cursive script! Check out the "thanks" sentiment above as a gorgeous example of this.  And of course our clear blocks make it so easy to line up the letters perfectly!
