My very first stamp set!

I am so excited that my first stamp set that I illustrated will be released on November 1st by Sweet N Sassy stamps! It is called snowflake silhouettes and this is a sneak peek of 3 of the stamps included in my set. It is available for pre-order now.

The color challenge on Splitcoast was blushing bride, baja breeze, and crumb cake. I love this color combo and think that snowflakes look terrific in baja. I did not have blushing bride so I used blush blossom which I hope is close enough. I stamped my bg paper with 2 different snowflakes in baja and blush. The center panel- I stamped the largest snowflake in the set in blush then the beautiful sentiment in baja over the top of it. I was not able to get the best of pictures tonight. I stitched all the edges and sponged ink around the bg and the image panel. The layout is the cute card thursday sketch.

Hi Janette,

Your stamp set looks lovely! Also, I wanted to answer your question on my blog, but you didn't leave an email address. I use Memento ink to stamp all of my images. And, you're correct, it will smear with watercolors if you're not careful. Don't use too much water and don't brush hard over the ink lines.

Have fun!
