Beautiful New Roses Set and Digital Flower Giveaway, Samples and Winner!

Hi Everyone,  it's Sandy and I have a NEW Digital Stamp Set to show you today called Roses and a Giveaway for all 4 Flower Sets (Dahlia, Roses, Poppies and Sunflower)  I'm working on expanding our Sunflower Set and the winner will get the updated version. Plus I have the winner from our Linky Party a bunch of some fabulous new samples and an update on having our house for sale!

The new Rose set includes all the designs from our old clear rose set but I've added several new large re-sizeable designs including a folder with 15 of them also in a brown sepia tone - and it's just $6.95. If you want to change to another color - I did a How To Change PNG Stamps To Colors Tutorial previously. 


You can see the sizes on the preview above and look how big some are! You can resize them and print them on a variety of mediums. I've also included all the samples shown below with the stamp set for inspiration.  There are 11 rose illustrations, 5 sentiments and a lady bug.

This beautiful framed sample was colored by our shipper Lyssa who tried to warn me it was her first time ever coloring a digital stamp - and look at how gorgeous it turned out!  Lyssa says she printed the 01 Rose in black on cheap copy paper and colored it with color pencils and layering oranges and red on the rose and wrote over the lettering with a light brown pencil adding some shading after.

Here is the same rose stamp colored by Theresa who told me she used 4 Copic Markers

R22,R24, G21, and Y28.  She printed the black 01 rose on ivory card stock and sponged Distress Ink Antique Linen on the background. 

Here is the same 01 rose printed in the brown sepia by DT Leader Kathy Clement who colored hers with chalks. Kathy will be posting her sample with all the details this Monday on her blog

Check out this pretty Rose card that DT Member Diane Hover created by printing the 18 Rose stamp on vellum and I love her technique to color the back with Copic Markers.

I have a bunch more samples but first I need to announce the lucky winner was #2 Loretta who won a $25.00 Digital Gift Card to buy anything that grabs her fancy in our store. I decided to give the new Rose Set as a gift to all the ladies who joined our Aug Linky Party. They did such a fantastic job and I want to thank them for their support!

Okay, I have more awesome samples to share like these fun Kitchey File Folder Cards by Kathy Clement,  she created for her sister's birthday party using our Retro Kitchen Kit! Kathy has a bunch more photos and all the details on her blog.

Look at this very cool rainbow vase card by DT Member Michele Kovack that she created with our Button Up Digital Set. You can see more photos and all the details on Michele's Blog.

How about this cute travel theme birthday card by DT Member Melody Clement she made using our CD 3 Creating With Vintage Typography and the trunk and postcard are from our Travel Scraps

Member Ginny Nemchak designed this great pocket card using a sheet of our Fall Cotton Scraps on sale for just $1.50 or buy all 6 themes left for $6.99 and Pastel Paper Pad paper with a ribbon and flowers from Really Reasonable Ribbon.

DT Member Diane Hover made this adorable friendship card using a illustration from our Wizard of Oz Digital Stamp Set and you can see a photo of how she added glitter to the Tin Man and Scarecrow.

I also have a fabulous Tutorial by Sheila Rumney on How To Highlight Text using Photoshop Elements. Sheila used paper from our CD #3 and she shows step by step photos.

I've been going to some scrapbook garage sales at local stores like Clipper Street and Country Lane
 and I met a lovely lady Linda who bought one of our Boys Chipboard Outfits at a previous sale and brought the sample she made to show me. I wanted to add it to our Linky Party but you need to link it to a Blog or Gallery and I never got a post done that night in time, so I'm sharing it here as it turned out so adorable.

So some of you may have wondered what the heck happened to me as I've been missing from the blog and DT Leader Kathy Clement has been running things for me.  Our house is for sale - which is just short of a miracle as we built the house 21 years ago and with 3 kids, my parents, 2 dogs, and the business it became filled to the rafters with stock, samples, old books, paper, postcards and way too much 'stuff' in general. I was a 'collector' or maybe a hoarder is a better term so I have been working like a busy bee to de-clutter. It's been a month and we've had 4 offers and really thought it was finally sold and then yesterday we found out the buyers didn't get financing which was so disappointing, I'm sure sad for them as well after paying $500 for an inspection.

So back to square one but I sure hope it sells this weekend! All my time is being used up cleaning and looking for the perfect townhouse close by the condo we found for my mom in White Rock. She's 83 and so excited as this will be the first time in her life to live on her own. She will be 1 block away from all the shops and not too far to the beach. I will my our house but I'm totally excited about the future!

Don't forget to leave a comment here to be entered to WIN All 4 of Our Digital Flower Stamp Sets. Which set do you like the best?   Roses,   Dahlias,   Poppies and the new soon to be larger  Sunflowers! A winner will be annouced next Wed Aug 26/15.

Wising you joy and creativity

It's almost impossible to choose, but if I must it would be the roses! But all are just beautiful!

KT Fit Kitty said...

Oh that is disappointing about your house, Sandy! But there seems to be lots of interest - it's a beautiful home - I know it will sell soon! So sorry I didn't enter this month's linky - I continued my blog break into August. But I think I have my mojo back - I started posting again yesterday - so think I will be coming off my blog break and I'll be participating next month for sure! Your new Roses set is absolutely stunning - the DT cards are beautiful! I looked at all the sets and the Roses are my favourites! Wishing you the best with your house sale!

Birgit said...

Beautiful inspiration all around by the design team! Your digital images are always beautiful and so full of detail and you can't go wrong with flowers. They're always a hit!

moknowsall said...

Everything is coming up roses. I love roses, and have over 15 plants in my yard. Love the vintage look - the design team entries are spectacular.


Theresa's Studio said...

I am so happy that I found your stamps by way of The Shabby Tea Room. I just love all the flowers and loved making my card with the Rose.

Sunflowers are my favorites at the moment since the outside edges of my deck are currently filled with them. They help give us some privacy when sitting out there in the evening. It is amazing how many shades of yellow they are.

Sue D said...

Beautiful flower sets. Sunflowers are my favorite flowers--they make me smile. Good luck selling your house.

Linda Carson said...

Love floral images! The Rose is so lovely! Beautiful work by your design team!

JG Designs said...

Jennifer Scull said...

all of the sets and projects are just beautiful! and Kathy is pretty fabulous, isn't she?! :)

I think I would have to say that sunflowers are my favorite right now, only because the birds, squirrels, and chippys are eating the seeds like crazy from the feeds on my front porch! every time I see the flowers blooming I think of how they will soon be feeding all of the wonderful critters that come by my house each and every day!

hope your house sells soon. I know that can be such a tumultuous time.

All of these stamp sets are just gorgeous! I am partial to roses, especially soft lavender roses. And roses make great shabby chic cards!

usagypsy said...

Retta said...

First thank you for the challenges! I've never anything before. I am so excited! I love all this digital goodness! I love Dahlia, but in looking at all the flowers, I think the Rose set is my favorite. Thank you so much again!

Love all the flowers but roses are always my true love. Hope you sell your house soon and your Mom loves her new place.

All the flower sets are very pretty! But, I love Roses, then Sunflowers and Poppies!
Good luck selling your can be a bit stressful when a sale falls through. Hang in there and things do work out for the best.

Thanks to everyone for all your wonderful comments! Congratulations to winner #8 Birgit who has won all 4 of our Digital Flower Sets! I finally finished the new Sunflower Set and just need to do a Blog post showing it off. I'm so excited with how it turned out!

PS – in response to my post, I’m happy to say we did receive a new and higher offer on our house and we have put an offer on a townhouse. We find out this weekend if the buyers qualify and then we can move early October. Thanks for the encouragement!
