STAMPlorations Special Release - Day 1


Welcome to the first STAMPlorations stamp release of the year, and we're kicking off today with one of my new sets, Carved Flowers.  I've designed the elements so that some of them can be used as flowers or leaves, giving you a fair bit of flexibility for creating your own carved floral arrangements.


You can create a large bold flower using any of the round images as a centre, and any of the oval or triangular shapes as petals.  I used Memento inks, then sponged Distress ink around the edges and in the centre of the flower.


If you don't fancy bold, you can use softer colours.  Here I created an all-over pattern using all three larger round stamps and the two oval stamps.


You can create your own bouquet and let everyone know that you picked stamped them yourself!


Or you can go for a bold but simple look.


Pop on over to the STAMPlorations blog where you'll see some more gorgeous inspiration from teamie Monika.  Don't forget to leave comments on all three blogs between 14 and 31 January for your chance to win a $15 coupon to the store (four up for grabs).

The four new stamp sets in this release are automatically 10% off until 31 January, but if you use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY you'll get an extra 20% off.
