Sweet Stamp Shop June Release #2

This is my second post today. 
For Danielle's special Delivery Blog Hop please scroll down. Thank you!

Wohoo, it's the second June release today over at the Sweet Stamp Shop . And this months release is fabulous and cute and versatile - just what I love!

I made one card for every Set, so let me introduce to you:

1) Koala
Oh my gosh, I LOOOOVE those little guys - they are beyond cute and you can use them on a card for ANY occasion.  One of the most obvious might be a baby card, so that's what I did :)
I really wanted to keep the focus on those sweeties, co I made it very CAS:  Just a few flowers (from the Hats Set) and a very simple color scheme. Soft for a baby card, does make sense, huh? ;)

Wow, a set with different campers - have you ever seen campers as cute as that? They're so much fun to color. I created a backdrop with some white embossing paste on kraft, because you just can't go wrong with white on kraft. And wood veneers and kraft always make a great pair. The colors are all muted so the camper really pops. (Again, focus on the mail image ;) )

I think I never really made a sympathy card so far - it's tough for me. But set is versatile and not only good for sympathy cards, you know? I made a card for someone you love - a good friend, your partner, your parents - there are so many people to think of and to send love to, right?

Whenever you want to invite someone to a party or a dinner - this will be your go-to set. It's perfect for scrapbookers and cardmakers - and all the food-related projects that you might create. I made an invitation using the sentiment from Juggling Act and the hats from hats, hehe. I love repeated stamping with sentiments - one of the best ways to use all those awesome inkpads and combine colors like you want (or even for color-challenges!)

Okay, I hop you liked my inspiration parade. There are TONS of inspirations on the Sweet Stamp Shop Blog, so hop over, get inspired and fall in love ;)

Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Which brand of black ink do you use for stamping? These are just amazing, and the stamping is so solid & dark!

    1. Hi Dawn, I use memento tuxedo black for the party that are colored with markers. Setiments and stuff are stamped with Simon Sys Stamp Black Ink (Whick is really a crisp, dark, black).
      I sometimes don't get the best impression with Memento, U use Faber Castell Pitt Artist Pens in black to fix that.
      Hope that was helpful :)

  8. Oh Christine, four beautiful cards in one post! Each one is wonderfully put together for interest and eye-catching elements abound. Beautiful work!
