Here's a little look at all five new stamp sets:
And here's some cards to showcase them:
Well how about that I went off piste and created a much more complex design than usual, bet you think it still looks CAS though! I used three stencils - Rainfall, Feeling Gritty & Banners & Bunting and three stamp sets - Find Your Rainbow, Small Print from this release & Furry Friends from May's release.
Stamps – Find Your Rainbow, Furry Friends
Card: Papermill Direct, black, super smooth white
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress oxide, picked raspberry, spiced marmalade, fossilized amber, ripe persimon, squeezed lemonade, twisted citron, worn lipstick, scattered straw, spun sugar
Die: MFT Die-namics, stitched jumbo fishtail banner
Pens: Copic, YR15, Y35, RV04
After the shock of that card I've reverted to type and gone with my current favourite technique of a stencilled background with a stamped image on top!
I used the beautiful butterfly from the Geo Bugs stamps set and the Watercolour Lines stencil in yellow behind it.
Stamps – Geo Bugs
Stencil: Watercolour Lines
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress, mustard seed
My next card uses one of the She Is Fierce faces combined with the Fierce stencil - a match made in heaven!
I chose the colours - well you know why - and had so much fun dying her hair just how I'd like to have mine.
Stamps – She Is Fierce
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black; Ranger distress, picked raspberry, wilted violet
Die: MFT Die-namics, double stitched circle stax
Pens: Copic, E0000, E000, E00, YG13, RV09, V17
My final card today uses much more subtle and peaceful colours and is quite calming to look at.
I used three stencils - Scenic Borders for the sand, In the Clouds for the sky and Arched Window to contain it all. I stamped some shells from Starfish Wishes directly onto the stencilling and also onto card to colour and hand cut for the embellishment cluster at the bottom of the window. The sentiment is from Small Print.
Stamps – Starfish Wishes, Small Print
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black peanut brittle, London fog, summer sky; Ranger distress, mustard seed
Pens: Copic, RV00, RV02, E21, E23, E25, E31, E33, E35, E44, E47, E49, E51, E55, E57, E59, BV000, BV01
Well that's my shares all done. Now it's up to you to finalise that shopping list and treat yourself to some new Funky Fossil goodies. Find them all HERE. Happy Shopping!
Remember to set your alarms for the Hochanda show at 3.00pm to see Sarah demonstrating using the new release stamps. It's the first time she's actually been able to go down to the studio because of you know what, so let's give her some love and support and cheer her on.
Thanks so much for your time today. I really appreciate you taking a look at my blog.
Stay safe and keep crafting!
