Saturday Stamping Sneak Peak...

Happy Saturday Stampers!

Last Sunday was the first day of the Craft, Hobby & Stitch trade show and Creative Expressions launched all their new 2015 products therefore I can finally reveal what I have been beavering away at for the last couple of months!  I have drawn, designed, tested and sampled my very own stamp ranges!  I am so Proud of this my first range of Acrylic Stamps and Rubber stamp backgrounds.
Daisy Corner Elements Clear Stamp Set

The range, which has 7 separate A5 stamp sets and 4 backgrounds, is called the Elements range as I have designed these to be used in many different ways.  I will be revealing a set every day for the next 7 days starting today with Daisy Corner and the first card shows the frame and one of the sentiments in the set.  The elements range is designed to have one or two main elements or frames with all the individual pieces or designs used to make the main pieces also included in the set as individual stamps.  Finally as I am an avid user of sentiments I have included a selection of different sentiments in each set.

There is also a background stamp to die for to match this set however I will reveal these over the coming days, don't want to show too much at once!! lol

The above image is the First set of stamps called Daisy Corner, I thought it might be nice to see the whole sheet.

The second card shows how you can use the individual elements to make your own background or designs piecing these together with the different elements.  I chose a very simple design for this card just using the swirls, two of the daisies (there are 6 different sized and styled daisies in the set)

I hope you like my first set as much as I do and as I crafter I have designed these to be used to bring out your own creativity.  Flexibility in craft products has always been what I have chosen to buy and use myself,  now I have been given the chance to deliver flexibility and hopefully value in my range!

The stamp sets should be available from your local craft shops in the next couple of weeks and will be featured on Create and Craft on the 28th February along with a range of products (including Foundation card as so many of you have asked) that I have chosen to compliment my range.

These stamp sets are designed to give you the flexibility to create hundreds of different designs all based on your creativity or make a quick and simple card, the choice is yours!

Dont forget Sue Wilson is presenting the weekender with some fabulous new products this weekend on Create and Craft, tune in at 9, 12 and 6 today!

Another reveal tomorrow,

  30. Wonderful news John, and I like the daisy set a lot. The sentiments are perfect.

  31. Good afternoon John,
    These are lovely flower and i will definitely be saving up some pennies to get. Thank you for doing what us crafters like and that is separating up the different "elements" into useful sizes that we can use what we want to make and use with them like backgrounds and borders or just a simple single stamped image. I hope they are a rare success for you as you deserve this chance. well done flower,
    crafty hugs
    Norah (glenochil)

  34. Hi John,

    Wow! You have come a long way in such a short space of time, well deserved, I am very happy for you and I love these new stamps, so glad you are including sentiments as we can never get enough of these. I look forward to your shows.
