Pink Daisies...

Happy Wednesday,

First I have to apologise as yesterday I inadvertently published a draft version of the springs child stamps etc, spellings and all!  I know it is usual for those of you who read this to be used to my spoonerisms and bad spelling and grammar but this was a step too far! lol

That said we are back on the stamp launch with 1 clear set and a background stamp to show you today.  I chose this card as I just love the daisies in pink even though Pink is not usually my colour (however it has featured a lot recently!)

This card was made using the new square daisy daisy background rubber stamp as well as one of the new clear Daisy Everyday Sentiments set, the full set is shown below.

I designed this et to match with the new Daisy Trail elements clear stamp set because I am always struggling for sentiments that match for my everyday cards.  We all need to make birthday, thank you, special day cards etc and I wanted some pretty, small yet detailed sentiment stamps that would tie in.

These have been designed to match with the Daisy Corner stamp set that I released last year as well as the new daisy set that will be revealed tonorrow and to tie in with the Spring Shades paper pack. I love things that match and make my crafting easier!  As you would expect form me there are additional stamps on the set the solid stamps can be stamped separately as well as with the flourishes at the top and bottom to allow for single or dual colour stamping.  I will be demonstrating these on the One Day Special at Hochanda on the 7th March so there are loads of demos planned for these sets.

here are a few close ups of the finished card which could be made in any colour or with any of the 6 sentiments in the set.

the winner of the Saturday Sneak Peak giveaway was Loopy Linda ( Linda Mellor)  If you email me on with your address I will post the card, and maybe a surprise over to you.  The correct answer was the new paper pad and the sentiment stamp!

More Tomorrow,

John x
