Gorgeous new Victorian stamp sets



Good Morning all you crafty Peeps, I've been such a bad blogger the last few days, no new posts, not a great deal of commenting for which I apologise but I've had my head down working on sample for a new venture, well for me it is anyhow. But I do so appreciate all your kind visits despite my absence.

Lots of you know our lovely Jo from C&C and her shop Lets Create, well recently she launched her very own range of stamps so I was thrilled to bits when she asked if I would be able to make her some samples using them. There are six sets each with several stamps on them, a good size and excellent stamping quality.


A package is on it's way to Jo a I type with my first batch of samples which she say's she will be using on her stand at the Lincoln Papercraft Show this coming Sunday and fingers crossed a TV channel familiar to lots of us very soon. Meanwhile she has given me the OK to blog a few to give you the heads up to look out for the stamps if you are visiting the show, but if not I think you can order them direct from the shop. You can find a link to her on her blog here.

The stamp sets all have a Victorian feel to them but I am finding them very versatile and they will work to either a Vintage or more modern them. The top card uses a floral spray from the Sealed with a Loving Kiss set, coloured with watercolours and glossy accents added. The lovely Victorian shoe on the second card comes from the Victorian Pleasures set, a fairly simple card where the image and Spellbinders does all the talking.

I hope you like Jo's new stamps and can recommend both the quality and versatility.

I would like to enter:

Everybody Art Challenges - Flowers
LEJ Desinges - Dies and puches
Visible Image - Brighten your Day ( I hope the flowers do)
Crafty Sentiments - Buttons (afraid the buttons a bit hidden but it's a very pretty one !)

Hopefully I will get a little time to do some blog hopping today.

How exciting.
I do hope we will get to know your new venture.
Your cards are beautiful as always Brenda and you are right, they can be used for far more than vintage cards.

Your olive green ribbon in the first provides such a lovely splash of colour to draw the eye & balance the bright fuchsia of the cardstock behind the lattice edging & I love how the ribbon ruffles echo those serrated leaf & petal edges. The second is my favourite - the sheer elegance with your pairing of the shoe with the die-cut panel & your decoupage is gorgeous.

Beautiful, Victorian style cards, Miss Brenda! Love the soft, feminine colors, and the pretty die cuts. Your use of flowers and leaves makes the stamp images feel even more magical. I like the folded "laced up" style binding on the second card, and the pretty use of ribbon on the first one. Gorgeous cards! hugs, de
