New Stamps Available!

Hello!

We finally have the 5 new stamp sets available to purchase in my online store - www.funkyfossil.co.uk AND there is 10% off everything in store this weekend when you use the code FUNKY10 at checkout :)  

Here are one or two more cards that I made with images from the new release:


I masked a circle and stamped the trees through the aperture to create a background for these two woodland cuties.  I shall link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is CAS.


Here I simply coloured and stacked the Wild Things on top of each other and combined them with the Banners and Bunting stencil and Random Rectangles stencil.


I stamped a loose wreath around the sentiment from Fa La La.  I shall link up at Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge where anything goes without the optional twist of jingle bells.

Remember that there is also a giveaway running this weekend which you can take part in by commenting on this blogpost and telling me what your favourite set from the release is.  The giveaway closes at midnight on Monday, 26 August.

Thanks for stopping by!

Abstract Beauty - new stamp set

Hello,

As my final stamp set of the week I have something a bit different for you today in the shape of an A5 stamp set called Abstract Beauty.  I really like the simplicity of these single line illustrations which work perfectly for both graphic, CAS designs and mixed media styles.  Here are a few examples:


Here the image is simply stamped and paired up with a stencilled background along with some stencilled words.


I combined the face with some of the butterflies from the set on a watercolour background for this card and combined it with a sentiment from Beautiful Inside and Out.

I hope that you like these designs!  All 5 of my new stamp sets will be available to purchase from 9am on Saturday, 24 August.


I will be back tomorrow with a review of the week's releases and a giveaway so join me then :)

Fa La La and Folksy Christmas - new stamp sets

Hello!

I am releasing 5 new stamp sets this Saturday, 24 August at 9am (UK time) and am sharing new designs with you every day.  Check out my earlier posts to see Wild Things and Woodland Winter!  Today I am sharing two new sets with you, both featuring the fab designs of Maggie Molloy - I love her quirky and folksy style.  I also wanted some bold Christmas sentiments for my cards and I think that Fa La La delivers that!

Here are some examples:


I teamed up the sentiment with my new Poinsettia stencil.  The sentiment really pops embossed on black card and with a die cut frame from MFT.


This is a simple card where I went for scandi colours of blue and red.  The sentiment is white embossed on to inked cardstock and the snowflakes make a quick background.


I used a wreath builder template to stamp the holly branch from the Merry Christmas sentiment and simply stamped the bold Noel in the centre.  A quick and easy Christmas card to mass produce!  I shall link up at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is CAS.

Finally, whilst I was in a wreath building mood, I stamped another wreath using elements from the Fa La La set and added in the sweet heart from Folksy Christmas:


These sets are so versatile and work for contemporary, scandi or traditional christmas designs!  I hope you like them:

  

I have one more stamp set to share with you tomorrow along with a fun giveaway!

Woodland Wishes - new stamp set

Hello!

After yesterday's safari theme of the Wild Things set, I have gone much more wintry with the set that I am introducing today.  Woodland Wishes once again features the whimsical illustrations by Le Petit Market but these woodland creatures are wrapped up for winter.....

Here are a few examples:



I stamped and masked the trees from the set along with the bottom of the panel in order to create an inky sky with distress inks. I splattered that with water for a starry effect and lightly coloured the trees in.  The lovely deer is coloured with pencils and cut out.


I have shared this card already and it features the sweet fox in a CAS layout simply coloured with pencils.

Here is the set which will be available to buy from www.funkyfossil.co.uk from Saturday 24 Aug at 9am (UK time).  I hope that you like it!


Stop by tomorrow for the introduction of two new stamp sets!

Wild Things - new stamp set

Hello!

I am going to be sharing some cards with my new stamps every day this week leading up to their release on Saturday, 24 August at 9am (UK time).  There are 5 new sets in this release and I am very excited about them.  I think they cover all styles from cute to folksy to mixed media - because I love them all!

First up are the Wild Things which feature illustrations by Kimma Parish from Le Petit Market.  I love her quirky, doodly style!  This set goes on safari with a lion, elephant and giraffe being the main elements with a mix and match sentiment.


Here is the whole crew.  They are easy to mask as the outlines are relatively simple to cut.  Don't you just love the mane on that lion?!  I shall link this up at The Male Room Challenge where the team is celebrating 6 amazing years AND I am the sponsor :)


Here is the lion again - I have combined him with my new wavy dots stencil in the background.

I hope you like this new A6 stamp set.  I couldn't stop playing with it so have lots more ideas to share with you over the course of the next week!


See you tomorrow with another new stamp set :)

Butterfly in Blue

Hello!

A very quick post from me today featuring one of the beautiful butterflies illustrated by Maggie Molloy and available in my Butterfly Wishes stamp set.  I have simply stamped and coloured the butterfly with pencils and added a sentiment from Clarity Stamp.

Sometimes simple is best!


I shall link up for a second time at Simon's Wednesday Challenge where the theme is Midsummer Blues and also at Seize the Birthday where the theme is Butterflies.

I have a new release of stamps going live next Saturday so check by tomorrow as I shall have sneak peeks from the new sets all through the course of next week :)

Here is the stamp set that I used today:
