New Home Sweet Home stamps

We have just launched a brand new set of stamps over on the Chocolate Baroque website called Home Sweet Home.

This is a lovely little set (it's A5 size) which would work beautifully with many other landscape themed stamps.  I can see it working well with other sets such as Eastern Grasses, Tall Trees and Wild Meadow to name just a few.

I made this card for my father-in-law who is in hospital at the moment.  He loves the fact that all the hospital staff have been admiring it and he proudly tells them that I made it especially for him.  Hand made cards really do spread a little happiness.  The card was stamped with Versafine and coloured with Coloursoft pencils.

I also made a couple of videos showing how to make the card below using masking and coloured pencils.  If the embedded videos below don't work for you, you can find the videos (Sunburst 1 and Sunburst 2) on my YouTube channel.

I have a set of these new stamps to give away to a lucky winner and I will be picking one of our DT blogs at random, then picking one lucky winner from their comments at random.  That includes my own blog and this blog, so get your commenting hat on and who knows, it could be you.

Watch out for more artwork from the rest of the Design Team coming soon.

  11. Stunning and LOVE the tutorial, thank you!

  12. First rate. I love the way that sun provides a foil for the trees & your subtle use of greens for the hills. I've never really paid much attention to Clarice Cliff before this has made me very curious about the whole style. Thanks for all you do.
