It's another very dull day here, but at least it's not as cold, so there's always an upside! Returning to the coast, though we can't see the sea from where we are, is wonderful - hearing Seagulls every morning reminds makes me pinch myself to make sure I'm not just dreaming! I absolutely love anything to do with the sea, so it's no surprise that I have included some watery designs in the new stamps sets.
Here are three more, starting with "Melissa" (PICSA6284) a Mermaid with a couple of her watery friends as well as some seaweed, wavy lines and an appropriate phrase. I'll be using this set a lot, I know!Here are some tags I made using the Melissa set, as well as some of the images I shared last night and some that I haven't posted yet. I've been really enjoying using lots of luscious colours. The words are either the phrases from the sets, or using my two new alphabet sets. The next set is simply called "Seaside" (PICSA6287) for obvious reasons! If you're on a beach can you resist picking up a shell and having a listen?! The third set is nothing to do with the sea! This is an A5 set called "shelves" (PICSA5277) which includes the craft shelf, toy shelf and gardening shelf which were released originally as wooden stamps. I've been asked at various demonstrations whether I'd be doing any more shelf designs so I have taken note and we now have the kitchen and teenage/mens shelf designs too. Here are two cards made using the Gardening shelf and the Kitchen version - hard to see in the pictures, but the shelves are 15 mm deep, so there's a lot of dimension. I'll try and get a better snap of them. I'll be writing instructions for how I typically use them - I'm sure these will be going up onto the PI website.
S0, there's another little preview and I'll share more later. The stamps will be available from March from anyone who stocks Personal Impressions products.
Right, I'm off to make some more show samples - I'm using Martha Stewart paints today and I've also got to cut out 80 post it note masks, stamp and tear out 30 phrases and stamp and cut out 50 assorted greetings for my Stitches workshops! My thumb is aching at the very thought!
