And here's a little more DT inspiration from me. My first card uses the very gorgeous and different Adventure stamps.

This two colour look was so easy to achieve using my misti and Memento inks. Ad I love how the two colours have blended into each other where the river and trees meet.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Adventure
Inks: Memento, cottage ivy, bahama blue; Versafine Clair, nocturne

Another card this time using the beautiful and peaceful Serenity stamps and a bit of off the edge stamping.

I'm sticking with a similar colour palette for all my share's today and I used a Kaleidacolor ink pad to achieve the gradient of colour on this card.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Serenity
Inks: Kaleidacolor, riviera; Verafine Clair, nocturne

And how could I resist those Quirky Owls! I combined my favourite owl with the spectacles - reminds me of me - and a FF stencil Forest Foliage.

The owl was stamped and masked off. then i used distress oxide in two colours to ink through the stencil. A simple CAS card.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Quirky Owls
Inks: Ranger distress oxide, bundled sage, pine needles; Versafine Clair, nocturne
Stencil: Funky Fossil, Forest Foliage

And for my final share I've used Blooming Birthday

As well as keeping to similar colours for my release day shares I've pretty much kept all my cards CAS too. I stamped the leaves in opposite corners using first and second generation inking and then stamped and hand cut the flowers. I used foam pads for extra dimension.

Stamps: Funky Fossil, Blooming Birthday
Inks: SU, rich razzleberry, garden green

Well I'm saying a huge thank you to everyone that's made it down to the bottom of this post. I hope you've enjoyed looking and I've helped you make decisions about which stamps to buy.

But then maybe you'd like to be in with a chance to win the entire release? Well Sarah's going to randomly pick one winner who leaves comments across the DT blogs and instagram posts. She's not revealing which DT or where though, so best leave comments everywhere to be in with the best chance of winning.

Thanks so much for your time today. And good luck to everyone, I hope it's you!

And of course keep crafting!
