Funky Fossil January Pre-Release Peeks - Scandi Home

Welcome to my last previews of the Funky Fossil January Release. And today's share is something a bit different again. It really reminds me of lots of the cross stitch patterns I used to stitch and is so instantly appealing.

And it seemed to demand simple primary colours so that's what I used on this first card.

I love the symmetrical look of many cross stitch sampler pieces and I guess this card was really inspired by that. I started with the house in the middle and then built up the picture around it.

Stamps: Funky Fossil Scandi Home
Inks: SU, real red, daffodil delight, cucmber crush, pumpkin pie

My next card uses two shades of blue and was inspired by the Delft china look. Once again I started with the largest stamp from the ones I wanted to use - the teapot -  and I built up the rest of the pattern around it. Although the end result is not symmetrical I'm thinking it still has that sort of feel to it.

I finished off by adding a corner stamp to the base card using the opposite corners to the top card. I like how this gives it an unbalanced but somehow balanced look.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Scandi Home
Inks: Memento, bahama blue, danube blue

My final card is right back to my roots - simple, clean and quick to make.

I stamped the coffee pot in dark blue and then die cut the card into a stitched square. this was matted onto a dark blue stitched square and then onto a white stitched square before being adhered to a dark blue card base.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Scandi Home
Ink: SU, night of navy
Dies: Lawn Fawn, stitched square stackables

Phew! That's the end of a few days of jam packed crafting! Thank you so much for taking a look and spending time with me here on my blog.

  I'll be back tomorrow with a few more cards to share using the Funky Fossil January release stamps to maybe help you make up your mind about which sets are going to jump into your shopping basket. Or you could just go for the whole lot!


I'll have details about how you could be in with a chance to win the whole caboodle. So be sure to check back in.

But in the meantime keep on crafting!
