Release Day!


Today the 4 new stamp sets that we have been showcasing from Funky Fossil are available to purchase.  They offer a mix of cute and quirky and classic along with Christmas and all year round.  Hopefully you will find something in here that you like :)



To celebrate the release, myself and each of the DT have a stamp set to giveaway from the new release of the winner's choice.  All you have to do is comment on this post and on each of the DT's blogs or insta accounts by midnight (UK time) on 26 October to be in with a chance of winning.  There is also 10% off everything in store for this weekend only - until midnight on 21 October when you use the code OCTOBER10 at checkout :)

I have a few cards to share with you using these new stamps:

The Sew Lovely set inspired me to stitch a frame.  The sewing machine is coloured with pencils.

It is easy to mask elements of the Plant a Garden set to create scenes.  The plants fit nicely in to the plant pot too!  The images have been watercoloured with distress inks.  I shall link this card up with the encouraging theme at Time Out as I think the sentiment is a really positive one and also at Inkspirational where the theme is Mask given the masking that I did with garden images.

I wanted to create an effect of the northern lights for the penguins on this card.  I created a watercolour background inked through the Shards stencil and went back over it with clear sparkle medium.  

Check out the gorgeous designs by the DT....they have made some absolutely stunning cards to inspire you further.






Do pay them a visit and leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning one of the stamp sets from this release.  I would love to hear what you think of it :)
