As soon as I saw this stamp set, and a sample on the same page in the brand spanking new Occasions catalog, I knew I had to have this stamp set and make this frame! Well, my box of goodies arrived on Thursday. . . it got unpacked and stamp sets put together – and Friday afternoon, this rolled off my craft table. I LOVE it!
This is a photpolymer stamp set with 13 stamps. Many small flowers and stems and 3 greetings. The colors I used are; Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pear Pizzaz, Rich Razzleberry and Soft Sky. It really has that watercolor look – but in this photo I didn't make it watercolory (hope that's a word!). But you can see the randomness of the flowers in the pic below. If you look closely, they are not all on top of stems! This could be a problem for those stampers who have to be "perfect".
The saying comes from the "An Open Heart" stamp set. You can see that I sponged Soft Sky in the background and on the saying pennant which is popped up on dimensionals. The button with a linen thread bow is a simple and perfect accent.
Adding a simple ribbon to the frame – Blackberry Bliss, just gives it a perfect finishing touch! This could be and will be an awesome gift! I think this is the perfect solution to my wonderment about what to do for co-worker gifts this year.
Yes, the Occasions catalog is on the way to you if you have purchased from me in the last year. You will also be getting a Sale-a-Bration catalog. You will want to set aside some time with a good cup of coffee or tea to look at this amazing catalog!
