New Floral Stamp Sets & Samples, plus More Floral Ideas!

Hello everyone,

I'm back and I have so many wonderful projects to share with you today!  I got a bit carried away because I wanted to show a bunch of my favorites floral samples. We have 2 new floral theme Clear Art Stamp sets that will start shipping the first week in February - SL38 Art Blooms and SM35 Floral Art.

SL38 Art Blooms  is a 6x8” large Clear Art Stamp set with 41 separate stamps that are so much fun to color, stamp in different colored inks, or try paper-piecing! You can create single flowers, bouquets and floral scenes adding the 1.25” butterfly and 2”W bird. There are multiple styles of flower heads, buds, decorative leaves, stems, curly vines and berries! The larger flower heads work well for paper tole style projects, with the largest flower 2” wide. The words Smile, Bloom and Grow are separate stamps. You create tiny or build large designs from wild funky art in a rainbow of colors to beautiful pastel floral art accented with a shimmer of glitter. Made in USA from high quality photopolymer. Available Feb 2/11


Look at this pretty card DT member Heidi Blankenship designed with the Art Blooms set, stamping all the flower pieces in pink ink and shading the edges.


Heidi also created this pretty card using the Art Blooms stamps and stamped the background with our Floral Vines Small set.  You can see step by step photos HERE on Heidi's Blog.


I love this card DT member Michele Kovack designed using the Art Blooms Stamps and how she added the butterfly stamp and depth with green shading on the stem. You can see details HERE on Michele's blog.


DT member Pam Hooten designed this beautiful card with our new Art Blooms stamps and I love how she stamped the bird and flowers and added them popped up for dimension. You can see the details HERE on Pam's Blog.


DT leader Vicki Chrisman created this beautiful card HERE with the Art Blooms set and the flowers look so pretty cut out and added to her frame, accented with a bit of glitter.


Vicki also designed this fabulous Flower Pin by stamping flowers from the Art Blooms set on circles of muslin fabric and tissue that she made into a flower pin with a rhinestone center. You can get all the details on how to create these  HERE on Vicki's Flower Pin Tutorial!


Okay, now I have a second new floral set to show you! 
SM35 Floral Art is a 4 x 6” medium Clear Art Stamp set with 4 separate stamps. The 2 large floral images are taken from antique art history books and have been lovingly restored. The detail on both of the designs is exquisite and great for coloring, or simply stamped in a variety of ink colors. For a different effect try stamping metallic gold ink on solid cardstock, using resist inks. You can stamp either design randomly to create background papers or as a focal image on a card. The stamps “Hello” and “Dear Friend” are 1” long. Made in USA from high quality photopolymer.  Available Feb 2/11


I have a couple of samples to show you using this set that I've posted before in case you missed them, and both are stunning!  Click on the photo to see in detail this gorgeous frame DT Alumni Member Marisa Grosson created by stamping the one top stamp from Floral Art randomly on a wood frame. You can see the 3D flowers she added and color details HERE on Marisa's Blog .


Here is a fabulous card that DT Member Michele Kovack designed using the top stamp from our new Floral Art set and the stamp 'Hello' for a Faux Tile Tutorial she created for splitcoaststampers.com HERE, 


Now I wanted to show you a few fabulous stamping ideas DT leader Vicki Chrisman sent me using our other medium floral sets SM31 Rose and SM33 Dahlia! Look at how Vicki used the Rose stamp set to create background paper. She will be creating a future layout with this but I wanted to show you how versatile stamps can be 


Here Vicki used our SM33 Dahlia stamp to randomly stamp tissue paper. The great thing is it looks good on either side and you could create tissue paper in any theme for a gift bag.



Then Vicki took the same Dahlia stamp and randomly stamped on a plain white photo mat to create this stunning classy frame to hold a special photo of her son and his fiancee. See detail HERE on Vicki's past blog post.


Vicki also jazzed up some little gift boxes by stamping the Dahlia stamp on pink paper and adding a bit of glitter and sheer ribbon.  So, I encourage you to use your imagination and think of all the possible surfaces you could decorate!  Plus - the great thing about clear stamps, besides seeing exactly where you want to stamp, you can can also bend them to stamp a curved surface or over an edge.


I also have a link HERE to 5 Fantastic Flower Samples which DT Members Heidi (SM31 Rose), Marisa (SM32 Poppy and SM33 Dahlia), Michele (SM34 Sunflower) and Linda (SM31 Rose) created with our 4 medium Flower sets we released in the summer.

Plus, look at this beautiful card below that  Beate Johns from spitcoaststampsers.com created and also had a red rose published ine new Copic catalog. Beate has created several video tutorials using our stamps and the list HERE at the end of this post  along with several other great videos from other talented designers!


A few DT ladies didn't receive our new floral stamp sets as we had limited proofs to start but they got busy and created some wonderful samples with a floral theme I also want to show you!

Look at this pretty garden fairy keepsake frame DT member Julie Campbell created using a combination of images from our Altered Fairy and Garden Scraps! You can see the details HERE on Julie's Blog.


DT Member Flo Texeira from France designed this stunning botanical theme album with so many beautifully detailed pages you can see HERE on her blog.  You can click on the English translator button on the far right side



Flo used a large assortment of our Clear Art Stamps and images from all of these products!




DT member Mary Hamer created this very pretty album with a floral fairy theme using a combination of Creative Scraps from Little Blessings, Birds & Blossoms and Sew Nice.  You can see more pages HERE on Mary's Blog. Note: not all the vintage images are ours.
On this page below in her album Mary used some vintage sheet music that will be on our new CD - Creating With Vintage Patterns and she changed it from black to pink and printed it on white cardstock.  I hoped this CD (the first of 3 in this series) would be ready next month but it looks like it may take a bit longer as I keep adding more patterns and we will also be  featuring templates and projects on these CD's.  I will keep you posted on the progress.


Please come back on Monday to see the debut of our Farm Fresh Creative Scraps and a collection of fantastic samples using our Farm Chicks and Down on the Farm Clear Art Stamp sets!  If you haven't entered our GIVE AWAY for a Free Tea with Alice Stamp Set and 2 sheets of our Wonderland Tea Creative Scraps, you can enter just by leaving a comment HERE on this Wonderland Blog Post and a random winner will be announced Mon, Jan 24/11

Wishing you joy & creativity

I'm relatively new to your site, but am greatly enjoying it; glad to see main office in Canada--I could actually visit to buy :) in my own currency! :)

These new floral stamps are so stunning, and the projects created by some of the best DT members I've seen are amazing. I can't wait to get a look at the Farm Fresh next week. We're getting chickens for the first time this, and I'm sure they'll inspire me to create some things from your Farm Fresh line.
