Introducing our new Cling Mounted stamps (by Glenda)

Hello everyone, it's been ages since I was last here!

As you may well know, I've been extremely busy lately putting all my energy into building a new website for Chocolate Baroque.  We finally finished and launched it just this week and as well as a fresh new layout and better navigation, we launched a brand new collection of individual cling mounted stamps.  Our wonderful designer, Sue, has done it again - aren't these gorgeous!

http://www.chocolatebaroque.com/cling-mounted-singles.html

I managed to squeeze in a little stamping time recently, but with most of my creative energy going into decisions about fonts sizes and heading colours, my crafting had to be super simple.  To me, that's the beauty of this collection of stamps - you don't really need to do much with them to get a good looking card.


The green panel on this card is a piece of watercolour paper, coloured with Distress Stains over which I have embossed the image in black.  I cut carefully around the swirls and layered it onto white then black and onto a 7 inch square card, with the corner flourishes from the gorgeous Butterfly Dreams stamp set.

I also had a little play with Stampbord.  These pieces are all coloured with dye inks or distress stains or a mixture of both.  I stamped with black Archival ink on all of them.






It's been a long time since we did a giveaway on the blog, so I'm going to ask you to pop over to the new website and check it out - read the new website guide if you have time (there's a link on the home page) and let me know what you think.

I will pick three lucky winners on Monday (22nd Dec) to receive a mystery Chocolate Baroque stamp bundle.  Who knows, it could be your lucky day!

Have a great weekend everyone,

    The new website is looking really fantastic, I've not had much time to have a really good look but what I've seen so far is very professional and easy to navigate. I shall be making good use of the new wish list feature too.
    Happy Christmas to you all

  9. The new website is a joy to use - easily navigable with clear instructions & information in abundance; it's actually far more than a shop front with all the info. The new stamps are a lovely addition to your range. As always I love it when you produce positive & negatives of the same image - the thrush looks super in both styles. Your bold & classy card demonstrates beautifully how these images can be used simply but effectively for all kinds of occasions & with older stamps. No prizes for guessing that my favourite of the stampbord pieces is the thrush!

  10. Well I popped over to the new website earlier in the week and saw these lovely stamps then. The website is a pleasure to use, very easy to find my way around. These new stamps include some really super designs. I love the Klimt panel, funnily enough I have been using my Klimt baubles to make some Christmas cards again this year. You artwork is great as always. So effective! Elaine

  15. Great new site....dropped big hints to husband but I'm probably better hoping for money to choose what I want rather than what he thinks I need!

    Seasons greetings

  22. The ite looks new and yet familiar at the same time, and everything worked fast and logically on my tablet. Hope you get to enjoy Christmas now that the worst web building is over! Thanks for all the inspiration your site and blogs offer :)

  23. The new site still feels familiar but the inspiration and product reviews are so easy to spot now.
    I also love the new layout of the website....... searching for stamps is far easier when you can enjoy just browsing through them all, or narrow it down by theme etc.
    Have a great Christmas.
