It is time to unveil the final set in Wplus9's debut release. This set is the largest in the release, containing a total of 31 stamps! Like "Funky Foliage" this set is a true image building stamp set with endless possibilities. I am pleased to introduce "Funky Flowers".
Funky Flowers contains 31 stamps; 18 building images, and 13 sentiments.
For my first card I wanted to really showcase these flowers' "funk" by taking it old school and using vibrant colors that say "look at me"!
Wowza! Isn't that fun? I used 4 of the image building stamps to create the flower and two of the sentiment stamps to create the "Fabulous Friend". Here's a close up on the crispy images these stamps produce.
But don't let the "funky" fool you. This set can go soft and dreamy as well. For my next sample I used the owl image that comes with "Funky Flowers" and paired it with the branch from "Love Birds" and some hand-stitching. The result: just dreamy!
I used some masking to get the branch just where I wanted it and went all the way around the inner cirlce with a blanket stitch. I popped the owl on some dimensionals and added my sentiment. For the background I added some random hand-stiching around and in the punched cirlces to keep with the softness of the card.And finally, can this set go a little rustic, a little vintage? Why it sure can!
Change out the color pallete, add some stripes in white on sand, and a little machine stiching, and you've got it. I used the lines from "Just a Note" to create the background pattern of stripes. For the focal point I used 1 image, a pre-built collage of flowers for quick stamping, repeatedly across the front. A little embossing, some stitching, and a sentiment. Yum! Here's a close up of that focal image.
All of those completely different styles out of ONE set! I'd say that's versatile. And do you want to see one more? Hope on over to Maile Belles' blog to see how she used some of the images to create patterned paper. You do not want to miss it!
All sets will be available next week. Keep checking back for the exact date or subscribe at Wplus9.com an you will be notified by email as soon as The Studio opens. I will post all full preview of all sets and the Design Team will be creating more projects until then.
Thanks so much for riding along with me and excusing the little bumps along the way. Once we get this one under our belts, it will be a smooth ride from there.
