It's time for a few new Appetizers from Gourmet Rubber Stamps! I had so much fun playing with these cute sets!
First up is Clothesline Greetings! There are two laundry lines in this set, each with its own coordinating sentiment! One is adorable baby clothes with the saying, "happy new baby!" Looks so sweet paper-pieced with some MME designer paper which will work whether the baby is a boy or a girl. I added some shading with my Copics just to give it a little more depth.
The other stamps in Clothesline Greetings include a summer clothesline and the sentiment, "sending warm thoughts!" Here I paper-pieced the center stripe of the towel and Copic colored the rest. The outside of this card was meant to have a sand and surf look...
...and the inside mimics the shallow waters of the tide pool. I love the way this sentiment looks alongside Message in a Bottle!
These two paper-pieced cards qualify for my friend Wendy's Friday free4all challenge at SCS..."mix 'n match!"
The second Appetizer set we're releasing is called Water Your Soul! I just love the sound of that (and I can imagine the sound of a fountain from somewhere nearby in this lovely garden)! This bench looks great with the arm rails and seat portion popped up for extra dimension...next time I think I'll try coloring some bricks in underneath it! The clay pot of tulips would be beautiful enough on its own but I really like the way they look grouped together, especially with this colorful Lawn Fawn floral paper!
Check out the GRS blog and what my design team mates have created with these fabulous new sets! They are amazingly talented and always inspire me! :)
