Going Vintage with Flower Blocks

Hello Everyone!

Welcome to Day One of Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps March 
New Release Blog Hop! 
If you are tired of winter and longing for spring, you are in for a treat! Today we are showcasing the newest Flower Blocks Clear Stamp Set.  This is the third set in our Flower Blocks series.  These bold and beautiful blooms make the perfect focal image and can be easily paper pieced or colored. 
  

My pansy was watercolored with Inktense watercolor pencils. 




I used Copics on my rose to get a vintage feel, and then fussy cut it out.  The image was stamped a second time on patterned paper and the cut out rose was adhered to it.  
I am entering this card in Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge-Vintage or Retro .

Here are the details~


  • Stamp set includes 4 images and 4 sentiments
  • Set measures approximately 6" x 8"
  • The images measure approximately 2 5/8" x 2 5/8"
  • Designed by Korin Sutherland
