Stamp Release day 3, tagged! ...

Happy Sunday,

I had a fab day at Lady Green yesterday and rounded the day off with Dinner with Wendy (Spanish Crafter) and Ang (Mrs Duck).  A great deal of laughs were heard around the restaurant!

 It's back today to my stamp release ready for their launch on Hochanda on Monday and Tuesday.  Today I have 2 sets to show and these are my first clear stamp sets that could be counted as Stamps to die for as these have been specifically been designed to match the Creative Expressions Craft dies designed by Sue Wilson pierced Flags and Pierced tags.  These are 2 of my basic sets that i turn to all the time however I wanted some stamps that would add lines and interest to them as well as making a set of sentiments that fit it exactly.

I have created some new sentiments for these as well as adding some of my favourites form my previous sets as I have been frustrated that i couldn't get my fave sentiment to fit!  There are a couple of comedic ones on there as well especially a quote form Liz Taylor that I just love!

The first set and card is designed for the pierced tags die set. I have drawn a different shading for each size of tag as well as 14 separate sentiments again designed to fit.  I have also added a daisy flourish as the daisy corner stamp set that I drew earlier in the year has proved to be really popular.  I always want all my sets to work together and separately so that you can use just one or you can combine the sets together.

The second set and card is the pierced flags which has a drawn stamp for each size as well as 13 separate sentiments, as there was space I added a couple of circle sentiments which work really well on their own.  These can also make great envelope seals!

I hope you are enjoying these sneak peaks, more tomorrow when we get to snowdrops!



  1. Morning John, these are fabulous and the card is beautiful and the colours are what we need in this dirty weather.

  2. Morning John, oh I am loving these samples and can't wait to see all the new stamps, they are on my list to order, I like the way you have stamped the sentiment on this card and got it to protrude through the frame. I have the frame set and must admit that I don't use it very often so by producing these stamps you will encourage me to get them out of the folder and use more, ( I am sure I am not alone in this either).

    I hope and pray that everyone who has, and are still suffering because of this terrible weather are safe and well.

    Stay safe, healthy and happy, hugs, June Smith xxx

    Ever since we talked Sentiment way back at Pickwell Farm, I have been hoping that you would produce some stamps 'Just Lockwood Sentiments'. You must be a mind reader! Thank you very much indeed! These are just up my street - as is everything that you do.

  18. Eh up John
    Heaven's to Murgatroyd, that first card is genius! What a superb way to display the labels. Love the design of the second but its showing bright pink and yellow on my screen.......I'm sure that's probably not the real colours.
    Great sentiments, so useful if you want something different.
    Had a fab evening with you and Wendywoo, but my goodness, the wind was terrible...........I'm sure you can get tablets for it!
