Hello there, I hope you’re all good and ready for another week of fun and inspiration. Today marks the start of the blog hop between WOW Embossing powders and Catherine Pooler and I’m totally thrilled to be part of it.
I fell in love with this stamp from the “Love Is In The Air” set the minute I set eyes on it as it’s just gorgeous. I can see it’ll become one of my go to stamp sets in the future as it’s so virsatile.
As well as the stamp set I also used two beautiful Catherine Pooler ink pads and created the watercolour background by smooshing some on my craft mat and spritzing it with water. You really don’t need much as the colour is so juicy and intense.
I used Chocolate Caramel Pearl powder from WOW to emboss the image and the contrast is perfect.
Hello there and welcome if you’re new here. I’m thrilled to be taking part in this hop between WOW and Honey Bee Stamps. I was sent this gorgeous package from Honey Bee and I couldn’t wait to play with the goodies inside.
They very generously sent me a fabulous flower border stamp and die called Zen Floral which has a very useful die to go with it. I used it to create this bordered card along with a Honey Cuts die called Hello Gorgeous Words.
It’s always an anxious time launching something which has been in my head for ages, then sketched out and thought about for ever before seeing it realised into an actual product and hoping that someone somewhere will like it as much as you….. and breath! That was my feeling when I launched my own stamp designs just over a year ago. Since then they’ve been very popular and given me a huge confidence boost.
I’ve recently had to have a restock and this time they’re better than ever. They come this time with cling mount on the back which they didn’t have before giving them a much better stamped image plus much easier to mount on a stamping block.
There are five individual houses to choose from with phrases or words and a row of town houses together.
To buy these and more click on this link to go to the shop.
Have a good weekend and I’ll see you soon.
Woo hoo, at last they’re in the shop and available for purchase – excitement and nerves all in equal measure. They’re all red rubber and unmounted which means for the best stamping result I recommend using a sticky foam mount on the back but of course it’s not necessary. All you need is a stamping block and some stick pritt and you’re good to go. The individual houses are approx 11 x 4.5cm and the 4 houses in a row 11 x 9cm
There’s a Dutch house with the phrase ” Big City Life” that comes with it.
A French house with “La Maison” of course,
A Georgian house with “Home Sweet Home”,
A Luxembourgish house with “Chez Nous”,
A second Luxembourgish house because I couldn’t resist and the phrase “Down Town”,
and my little row of houses.
I can’t pick a favourite it’s just too hard.
To buy them they’re available here in the shop http://shop.basementstudio.lu/
I do hope you like them as much as I do.
