Tonic punch and stamp sets


Using the Rose/Pansy set, the veins on the flower and leaves are stamps which come as part of the sets

Good Morning Peeps, thank you all for your lovely comments yesterday about Marianne's work, they were all much appreciated. If you've not seen it yet do check out my prize celebration here and don't forget it's open to all styles and abilities of crafting and the winners will be randomly selected.

Today's is a quick post to share a few more of the card I have made using Ruth's Stamp and Punch sets from Tonic. The new sets were released last weekend and the first two sets are now available n the high street and I have added thumbnail links below for you to check them out.

Using the Lily set

The sets are so versatile and you can really let your imagination run wild with new variations.

Using the Rose set and turning the leaves the other way round to create a Daffodil


I dear, I nearly forgot to add the names that came out of the hat for last weeks stamp re-homing, I have three packages all ready to go if the following will mail me by Monday 11th with their full names and postal addys.

  13. I love the way you have replicated her corsage with the punched flowers & your decoupaging of the floral elements of the image. The colours are delightful. The colours & your unusual treatment of the stamped image really catch my eye in the second & this just has to be my favourite of this trio - so classy & elegant too.
    In your final sample I love the way you have used a cutaway design to allow the patterned paper to be visible. The two colours of sheer ribbon are a lovely touch & the flowers totally ingeniou - especially the way those orange centres echo the hint of orange in your internal patterned paper. The brown of the verse is perfect with this & very classy against the white.
