Hi everyone, Gretchen here! I wanted to share with you the April mid-month special releases from The Stamps of Life and a few samples I made to showcases them. These three new sets are really versatile, they are pattern2love, frilly4abc, and tinytitles2stamp.
Patterns2love is a beautiful background design that will work perfectly on cards and scrapbook backgrounds alike. It comes with a vertical “birthday wishes” sentiment. I made two tags to show how pretty this background stamp really is.
I used Versamark ink to stamp on the tags to give them a really subtle effect. The sweet sentiments are from the tinytitles2stamp set. This set, which has a ton of different sayings (15 in print and 15 in cursive for a total of 30!!!), might be my new favorite set. I love simple and cute sayings and these definitely fit the bill.
I decided to make a small, simple card to showcase the frilly4abc’s set. This cute little card measures 4” x 4”. The stamp set itself comes with a few additional letters to make stamping a breeze if you are stamping out a long word.
This card was very quick and easy to make: I rounded the corners, outlined the card, added some antique looking brads through the petite flowers, and wa-la! I was done. Sometimes you need a quick card to put into a gift bag and a 5 minute card is all you have time for. 5 minutes and it’s still super cute!
Don’t forget, if you have anything you would like to share with us, please feel free to upload your creations into the Create Scrapbooks Flickr Gallery.
