Last month here in North Texas the Great American Scrapbook Convention came to town. I noticed a new (to me) company called "The Stamps of Life". Lots of fun images caught my eye and as I wandered into the booth, I met the very friendly owner, Stephanie Barnard. Stephanie used to design See D's stamps for the no-longer-in-business "Inique Boutique" line. She is so sweet and was happy to talk to browsers checking out the booth. Since I Iove paper-piecing and coloring, lots of her sets appealed to me!
Two things that made me spend money on her stamps are 1) the value -- so many stamps for a $12.95 a set. 2) They are very very versatile - you can mix them with other sets entirely, they "fit" with other sets (i.e., the petals of the butterfly can be paper pieced into the flower set (that I didn't get yet!). All the pieces are all separate, you can get very creative with the individual images.
I joined her monthly club (details here) and have already received my first monthly set! I haven't played with it yet (except I used the sentiment on the title image of this post), I already know it's going to be a fun one!!
The sets I had in my hand when I walked away were:
|Background is made with blue Pan Pastels, sentiment is from July's Club Member se.|
|Kite bows are made dimensional with Viva Glass Effects Gel Pen|
|Card cased from KWerner Designs|
And the sentiments I used are from this set -- which is AWESOME and so versatile!! :
TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
