Good morning and welcome to day three of our previews, if you are new to us, we design clear Photopolymer stamps and we're having a new release tomorrow! We have 4 new sets coming out and you are invited back tomorrow for our Design Team blog waltz, and to see the stamp sets in their entirety! Hope you can make it, there will be inspiration and eye candy and we will draw the winners from the commenting competitions on this and the DT blogs!
I have a Christmas set for you today. I know, you're going to tell me it's a little late in the season for these, and yep, I'm going to agree with you!
Fact is these should have been out in October, along with a few other Christmas goodies, but you know the drill...we are about two months behind yada, yada, yada...
Anyhow, I was just saying to somebody the other day that since Christmas Stamps are pretty much the reason WMS exists in the first place, I could not resist letting a set through. The rest of our glorious Christmas designs will have to wait until next year...but this set, I had to have.
It works with dies from all three Spellbinder ornament dies template sets released so far and I love the sheer opulence of it!
DT ladies who are previewing this set with me today are:
Don't forget to leave comments on the girls blogs as you pass by, you could win some stamps!
I used the largest stamp in the set to create this very special tag It co-ordinates with the largest die in the 2010 Heirloom ornaments set which many of you may already have. Highly detailed this stamp looks fabby just stamped, but I chose to emboss it in gold and then colour in selected areas with copics - I kinda made up the colour scheme as I went along, and I love how it turned out. Basically the swirly bits were coloured red and then bits were picked out in a darker red. The stripes are coloured a mustard shade and the wee scalloped detail was coloured brown. I love colouring graphic images like this because there is no right or wrong, it's not like colouring in images of people where I struggle with tones. I find this sort of colouring very theraputic, almost like doodling.
The sentiment is also from the Ornate Ornamets set, there are some 4 different ornament stamps, 14 sentiment stamps and one rather special snowflake 'leg'.
See those snowflakes at the bottom of the gift baggy - these were created with the snowflake leg - there was not room in the set for a full snowflake, but there was room for a leg! See the photo below where I have stamped the leg twice in red ink:
You can see clearly the dot at the bottom of the leg image - it is there so that you can easily line up the next leg by placing the dot on the stamp directly over the dot from the first impression. Also those little curly lines - see how they just touch? If you keep goung round in a circle with the curls just touching and the dot centered you get a perfect snowflake! It is much easier to stamp it than read about it! LOL!
So since I'm itching to know what you think, I want to ask you to leave a comment here, telling me which set you think you like best from our samples so far - one commenter will win all 4 sets! I will make the draw tomorrow at 6:00pm just before the release goes live at 7:15pm!
