{NEW RELEASE} BLOSSOM OVERTURE February/March 2015 Stamp Club Set

Hey there, STAMPlorations friends! I wanted to share the news that the February/March 2015 stamp club set is now available in the shop!

BLOSSOM OVERTURE is a 5" by 7" stamp set that features 3 flower images, 2 distressed/vintage style labels, and 20 words and phrases that can be mixed and matched to create your own special messages. The fun part is that you can fit up to 3 lines of text in the labels. If you own other STAMPlorations sets, you'll find that the images and sentiments in Blossom Overture go well with those too.

I had fun illustrating and designing this set, and I must admit, it's one of my favorites because it combines my love for sketchy/hand-drawn images with a vintage/distressed feel, typography, and sentiment building. Earlier today, I sat down and made a few one layer cards using the stamps. You'll get to see even more gorgeous projects from the STAMPlorations girls in the coming weeks.

I stamped the rose repeatedly, masking as I went along, and then loosely colored them with Chameleon alcohol markers. 

I used Faber-Castell watercolor pencils, layered the colors, and then went over the morning glory image with a damp brush to blend the colors.

To create the card above, I first stamped the label and masked it before stamping the big rose twice. I added spatters by flicking a wet brush loaded with a bit of mustard seed Distress ink.

Whether you're a CAS-loving cardmaker or you're someone who loves mixed media or you're somewhere in between, Blossom Overture offers lots of stamping possibilities. Check out Blossom Overture here. It's now available and ships immediately! Like the set? Consider signing up for the stamp club here to get the special club price + perks + free shipping anywhere in the world.

If you're already a stamp club subscriber, you can choose to receive this set when your subscription renews. You also get to pick any 2 ARTplorations stencils to go with your stamp club stamps! We've got 13 stencils (and growing -- I'm adding more over the next weeks) in the shop.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy stamping!
