January's Stamp of the Month S1601.....'Beloved Bouquet'......  is available exclusively throughout January only.... for just $27 or for $7.50 when you spend $75. There are 14 individual stamps in this set and they are flowers and lovely sentiments so they are just wonderful and can be added to any project. This stamp set has so many possibilities so check out all the posts for loads of ideas for cards and scrapbook pages.

The benefits of this stamp set are the double image...shape and can choose the colour of the solid image and then select a different colour for the outline. It is easier to stamp the solid shape first and then match the outline....easy to do as our stamps and blocks are clear! I sat and played...make sure you have a scribble piece of paper along side. I used 2nd generation stamping, masking to cluster the flowers and leaves and background techniques. I also tried the same design in different many decisions.

The card in this photo is just stamped straight onto the blank white cardstock......use an extra cutout shape of the stamp to provide a mask so you can cluster the flowers and leaves together.


This flower image is stamped on a separate piece of card and then fussy cut with our amazing scissors. The background is 1st and second generation stamping and then a little colour added with a blending pen and the acrylic block as a palette containing some of the dab over image. The flower is adhered with 3D foam tape. The edge is 2 embossed lines using our scoreboard to create a border and mounted on matching cardstock for the flower image and ink colour. Which colour do you like?
