It is always dangerous for me to go to HEATHER'S STAMPING HAVEN in Ottawa. I never can get out of there without a new stamp (or two or three....)
Heather has designed the most super new stamp sets. She has had them made by The Stamp Barn but her designs are ingenius!
Here is one set I bought. See the birthday present outline? That is one stamp. Then she has designed three different inside decorations, if you will, to over stamp and decorate the present. For this card I chose the candles and balloons. Here is a photo of the stamp set and you can see the pansies and birds as well as a snowflake and candy design for the gift. Won't the snowfake/candy design be fun to use for Christmas gift tags? And the flowers and pansies for mother's day or shower gifts and cards?
Another set that I bought is her butterfly set that works the same way and I'm eager to make cards with them.
Click on the photos to enlarge so you can see the fun details in the overstamping you can create. Oh, and Heather does ship to the U.S. Just thought you'd like to know.
She also has a shoe set and if you are nuts for shoes that are "too cha-cha for words" you'll love the various shoe styles you can create.
For this card I watercolored the present with Tombow markers, added stickles, ribbon and copious amounts of Cuttlebugging from the embossed Happy Birthday background to the tags and mat die cuts. The sentiment is from SU.
I'm back to stamping. I've gone through terrible withdrawl pains these past few weeks not stamping and making cards but there have been just too many other things going on. I'm also doing a lot more sewing these days. But even with dogs, hogs and sewing I'll never stop card making and stamping. Nope! Never!
Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate it more than you can imagine!
