We've just added details of this year's first exciting stamp release to our website together with some inspiration from our Design Team members.
The set was designed by Georgina who is one of our Design Team and is called "Georgina's Buttons and Stitching Set". There are ten stamps in the set and you can find more details plus a full gallery of example cards here on the website.
The stamps are perfect for adding detail and accents to cards and work really well on their own too.
Here are some examples from our Design Team members:
First of all, a card (above) from Georgina using her stamps to create a very effective background - perfect for using up those little pieces of patterned paper that you've kept "just in case" you can use them!
Next, another card from Georgina using our 'Flowerhead' stamp with buttons for the centres of the flowers and the stitching round the edge of the design:
Next, two cards from Helen N. The first uses our current club stamp "At Home" - the button has been decoupaged:
Next a card using the cross stitch stamp to make a patchwork background and also a border around the page - again the buttons have been decoupaged. The other stamp on this card is our "Daisy Pitcher":
Now, two cards from Helen R, using our "Oh Man" stamp, showing the stamps work just as well with men's designs:
Finally, a really pretty card from Donna which also uses our "Butterfly" stamp:
You can see from these cards what a useful and versatile set this is - we'd love to hear what you think of it and also our cards so please leave us a comment!
