Funky Fossil New Stamp Set "More Furry Friends" Release Day

Today the fabulous Funky Fossil Designs new clear stamp set called "Furry Friends" is available to purchase. The stamp set is designed by the super talented Donna Gray and is a stand alone but also a continuation from her origianal "Furry Friends" stamp set.

For this card, I have mult- stamped the bone along the bottom of the card, adding the dog and the sentiment above the bones, all stamped in Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.  I have coloured the bones and the dog with a Posca Pen and added some Ranger "Glossy Accents" to the eye and nose area.

Funky Fossil Designs New Stamp Set "Small Print 2" Release

Yey!  Today the new Funky Fossil Designs "Small Print 2" clear stamp set is released.  It is a fabulous set of small words  and phrases that will be so handy for lots of projects.

For this card, I have used two of the new stamp sets.  For the background design, I have used the ball and the bone stamps from the "More Furry Friends" stamp set, colouring the image with blue and orange Posca Pens. 

I've then die cut a circle of card and multi stamped the sentiment of "How Old???", finally topping it with a circle of orange coloured card and the numbers 21 in blue card.

I used four shades of Distress Oxide Inks (Squeezed Lemonade, Ripe Persimmon, Kitsch Flamingo and Picked Raspberry) through the Funky Fossil "Bokeh Builder" stencil.

I used a Wow! embossing pad and Wow! Earthtone Blueberry embossing powder, heat set for the sentiment which is part of the new "Artsy" stamp set.

For this card I have used the new "Heartfelt Tree" stamp set, designed by my friend Tina Ashton.

I've stamped the sentiment and the bird house in Versafine Clair "Glamorous" pink ink, colouring it with "Picked Raspberry" and "Tea Dye" Distress Oxide Inks.

I used an embossing folder that came free with a magazine some time back for the textured background, die cutting both the stamped area and the embossed area with a stitched edge die.

Lavinia Stamps "Wren" on a gel plate and stencilled background

This evening I have had another play with my Lavinia Stamps, this time using the Lavinia "Foliage" stencil with Versafine Clair "Verdant" green ink over the top of gel plate and Brusho background I had created some time back. 

I stamped the Lavinia fairy "Wren" using Versafine Clair "Monarch" purple ink, highlighting her edges, wings and hair with a white Signo Pen, Sakura shimmer pen and Signo glitter pens.

The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp and is part of their "Tiny Words - Birthday" stamp set.
