We've taken a little break from Christmas themes this week, because we still need birthday, thank you, congratulations and get well cards etc. Our new product this week is the beautiful range of floral stamps designed by Stacey Barrass for Crafters Companion. They have a lovely hand drawn quality with a lot of detail and lend themselves to so many techniques.
With different techniques and colours choices can give you very different looks of cards even when using the same stamp set increasing the usefulness. Male cards are often not made with floral images but there are many men that like gardening and flowers so why not give it a try. You can try a monochrome colour scheme, using Memento Gray Flannel or Rich Cocoa or Spectrum Noir Graphic pen set Cityscape with it's masculine colour sceme and very uselful neutrals or how about fully coloured images using Spectrum Noir Graphic pen set Tints and pair it with one of the sentiments such as 'You are amazing', 'Thank you', Thinking of you' or how about 'Live life your way', one of my favourites.
For a Christmas card, stamp with Versamark and heat emboss with Wow Gold Rich Pale superfine embossing powderr and colour with the deep, opulent colours of Christmas or you could go for a white, frosty theme by heat embossing with Wow Metallic Silver Sparkle or Pearlescent White Pearl superfine embossing powder and use pale blues just to provide a hint of colour. How could anyone resist!
We have more of the Foam on a Rolll back in stock and also some A4 sheets of double sided foam.
In last weeks blog post we gave you some ideas about how to mount these stamps and you may notice that we have run out of Ezmount, although more is comong in, however, in the meantime we do have Stix2 Mount n Stamp.
That's it for this week hope you find this useful,
