Language of Flowers...Honeysuckle...

Happy Sunday,

Well it is the last day my stamp release for spring 2017 and the last flower the honeysuckle!  There is, as with the rest of the collection, a large spray of honeysuckle as well as a clear set with smaller flowers and sentiments / meanings.

Here is the clear set followed by the large A6 Honeysuckle spray.  This one is great for colourists however there is enough detail for it to look great just stamped!.

I hope you have enjoyed your glimpse into the Language of flowers they should be available in retail stores and online form this week.  I will be demoing these on Hochanda at the end of may beginning of April.



  1. Wow John, you have captured that Honeysuckle just right, a really difficult flower to draw I should imagine. Your two cards are beautiful too.

  7. Hi John,
    another wonderful example of your superb artist work in these super stamps.
    I can see all these being so very popular in the shops.
    Sadly no craft shops in my town any more so I will have to buy from Julia as I usually do with CE products.
    Wonderful card and your design is very lovely too.
    Lots of crafty regards. Jenny L.

  8. What gorgeous art work. I love honeysuckle. Well done on a wonderful set.

  16. Morning John, what a stunning collection all these new stamps are, I am not going to tell you my favourite because they are all up there in no. 1 spot. Love the samples you have made and the inspiration you have given us.

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

Looking forward to tonight's show though I am away during the whole of March so unless I can pick them up on my tiny ipad then I will miss them (Hochanda doesn't publish the shows more than 7 days ahead so I cannot record them to watch later).
