Hello, Happy Sunday AND Happy New Release Day!

I’m super excited to share these new products with you and they are now officially available to purchase over HERE on the website. For the formal introductions and all the Brand Ambassador blog links, head on over HERE.

Be sure to leave some comment love either on their blogs or social media. I will be randomly selecting a winner to win the entire release and will announce the winner Saturday 26th August 2023.

Let’s have a look at these products in action a bit more…

I’m starting with Mid Century Modern Wreath Builder and I wanted to show how these clear stamps have more than a festive use to them. The wreath as you can see can be used for more than just Christmas, I also see sunshine rays!

And I was inspired to pair it with our Stencil – Cloud 9 and a sentiment from Sunshine & Rainbows.

This lead me onto my next card.

Still thinking of sunshine, it reminded me of flowers and sunshine, so I had to pair it with Mid Century Modern Florals.

And I think they pair pretty nicely, even if I do say so myself. As you can see I added some glitter to the inside of the outline wreath.

Keeping with the non festive theme and wreaths on the brain, I turned the Mid Century Modern Christmas triangle geometric into a rainbow wreath for this fun birthday card.

It’s not very often I make a slimline card, but I had so much fun making these wreaths I made two! The centre is decorated with the bow from Mid Century Modern Wreath Builder which are stamped in black and hear embossed with stardust embossing powder.

My sentiment is from Floral Vines paired with the NEW Everyday Family.

For my second card I wanted to recreate this card HERE, paring the same stamp as above with the Bauhaus Blocks.

I overhung the triangles off the edge of my card, keeping them the same size on the left, but altering the size on the right. I then left space at the bottom for one of the blocks and a sentiment.

Lastly for today I had to get festive with my cards. First using Mid Century Modern Baubles, firstly creating a monochrome one layer card.

A simple bit of masking and Copic colouring finished with some clear Wink of Stella.

My next bauble card was inspired by Vinita’s second card HERE, to combine the Stencil – MOD Background Builder.

I started by lightly stencilling the design in the background using Pebble ink. I then stamped and coloured 3 baubles using the reverse masking technique again.

Finally I embellished the baubles with some more elements from the set and mixed and matched a sentiment using the Happy from Mid Century Modern Frames.

One last card as I couldn’t not use the new Ink & Flip Stencil or the Background Block Arts Décoratifs Christmas, so combined them on one card. This was inspired by one of Steph’s cards today HERE.

I started by inking the stencil just the once on my standard size card 10.5 x 14 cm in Poppy ink. But I wanted it slightly darker so went over softly with Cranberry ink.

I then inked and stamped the background block twice so I could colour and fussy cut the main focal Christmas tree out. Which after selectively colouring some of the second stamped background block red, I adhered the Christmas tree with foam tape. And lastly added the fussy cut bow from MCM Wreath Builder, coloured in red.

My aim was to create a card that looked like a gift with a gift tag & bow.

Phew! What a mammoth post. I hope you have enjoyed this release?

Happy shopping and hope to see you over on Facebook at 7pm this evening. I will be taking a look at the new products, along with making a card or two in the live. Don’t worry if you can’t make it or you don’t do Facebook, I will be saving and uploading the video to YouTube.

January Restocks with a Throwback Thursday thrown in!

Hello & Happy Thursday!

I thought I would pop by and let you know about a few clear stamp restocks that are currently available on backorder and will (with all being well) land in the studio on Tuesday 12th January.

Let’s have a look and see what’s been top of the restock request list…

The Mid Century Modern range of clear stamp sets continue to be popular and highly requested. They are one of my favourites and it makes me happy to see Mid Century Modern Florals back next to the background blocks in this range lining the shelves again in the studio.

I’ve another floral in the restocks this month and another in the modern florals, Uniko Style.

This clear stamp set looks a little daunting and uninspiring from the product picture. But when you stamp, layer the flowers and start creating patterns it really comes to life.

Marvellous Mehndi has been out of stock for a while now, apologies to those who have been waiting patiently for it. Having to close during lockdown 1 put quite a delay on everything really and I just about feel as though I am catching up!

Looking back through the gallery on the website I was surprised to see that it was October 2016 when this clear stamp set was launched. How time flies, but still patterns and fun designs like this remain timeless.

With Uniko’s 9th Birthday coming up next month I wanted to get this popular stamp back in stock, Block Party Birthday.

This all in one stamp makes making birthday cards a breeze! Use it as a backdrop, the main focus or even use sections of the design to accentuate other birthday elements.

Lastly and by no means least for this batch of restocks we have the ever popular Background Blocks Wonky Stripes.

Such a fun and eye catching pattern to use as a backdrop for all kinds of elements and occasions. I personally love geometric style stamps like this for masculine cards. But it looks pretty awesome with florals too 😉

Unfortunately that is all the clear stamp set restocks at the moment. I am planning on some more towards the end of January / beginning of February. So if there is something you’ve been waiting for, please leave a comment or send me an email and I will do my best to add that to the HOT list!

Thank you for your patience, understanding & continued support 🙂
