Thursday Ferns...

Happy Thursday,

Sometimes we all need to create something simple, classic and elegant todays stamp set is designed to give that look and flexibility.  Todays set, called Fern frames and elements, contains some of my favourite ever sentiments.   I have designed these sentiments to be relatively small (against some of the other sets that is) so that they will hopefully prove perfect for die cut cards or smaller thoughtful cards and creations.  As die cutting is my primary craft I wanted a set that would work in tandem with more complex die cut cards that need a focul element that doesn't detract.  This fist card hopefully demonstrates what I mean.





I have used one of the two fern frames in the set on this card which I have stamped onto a die cut square form Sue's Noble pierced squares set.  I stamped the image using perfect medium and I dusted blue mica powder, from the garden floral set, over to reveal the image.  As I said above i really feel this lets the die cut card shine but compliments the style.

The next card uses the elements form the set, again I felt it was important to allow you to use every element used in the design separately, to create a more dramatic card.


this is again stamped in perfect medium and mica however this time plain gold!



Heres the full set to view, last one tomorrow!

Enjoy...

  43. The first card really floats my boat John! Another fab set of stamps - I've always loved ferns be they in the garden, on a country lane, in a vase or plant pot. Now I may have them in my stamp collection complete with great sentiments. Just one thing, why, oh why, have you launched them all at the SAME TIME? I'm going to feel like 'the little boy that Santa Clause forgot'!!!! Never mind, I wish you every success with your great products and know you'll do really well.
