December's Stamp of the Month - Steampunk Butterfly

I know Christmas is just weeks away now, but we are looking beyond that with our wonderful new stamp set, Steampunk Butterfly.

The rose on this set is cleverly drawn to look like it is made of riveted metal and Sue, our wonderful stamp artist, almost didn't include it. I'm so glad she did as it has been extremely popular with all of our design team and you will see it coming up over the next month in many different guises.  Pop over to my blog ( to read how I created this mixed media wood block.

The big butterfly on this set is a delightful collection of gears, cogs and bolts - just crying out to be embellished with watch parts, Ideology bits and pieces or decorated chipboard shapes.  The design team have really blown me away this month with their samples and I know you're going to love them too.

Steampunk Butterfly is our December Stamp of the Month and will be on special offer right through this month (there's a special price for our wholesale customers too).

But wait ... there's more!

Each Friday we are going to pick a favourite stamp set to put on offer for one week and this week, it is the turn of Family Christmas, a lovely A4 set with a nostalgic feel.

And finally, I had a few requests for specific Christmas sentiments, so I came up with a little handful which we have produced as clear stamps (so much easier to position) and they are available separately or as a multi-buy.  Visit the Clear Stamp department to see them all - they start at just £1.99.

I am finding these Christmas sentiments SO useful for quick cards, especially flat, no-embellishment cards (keeps the postage costs down too).

So, if you've read this far, you deserve a reward.  How about a giveaway?  It's been a while since we did one*, so please leave us a comment and we'll put your name into the draw.  I will pick two winners next Friday - one will win Steampunk Butterfly and one will win the full set of Christmas sentiments.

Tomorrow I will be back with news of a different kind - we have a new designer on the team!!

PS - last time we did a giveaway (Gothic Fragments), I never got round to announcing the winner.  We did contact the lucky lady (Lynn Hardy) and sent out her prize, but I do apologise to anyone waiting to hear - my bad!


  1. Wonderful steampunk butterflies and the rose is amazing too - a great set.

  2. What are you doing to us Glenda, more superb stamps. This set will have to go on my Xmas wish list.

    Fantastic rosé and super butterfly.

    Well done, another set of superb stamps



  3. Wow, stunning set! The rose is amazing! Love the butterflies too. Never really been into steampunk before, but this set could just change my mind!

  4. What a gorgeous set of steampunk stamps, and I can see why the rose stamp would be a favorite among the design team. The butterfly is amazing as well, and the cogs, perfect for backgrounds. It's right at the top of my wish list, so will be the next purchase I make.

  8. Goodness - there are such different & useful images on this Stamp of the Month set. That rose is quite something & I'm not surprised the DT have had fun with these. That big butterfly is a real gem. super selection of sentiments for Christmas too. Amazing that you managed to get them done for this year.
    Thanks for doing a giveaway too & looking forward to seeing who the new addition is.

  10. Loving the Steampunk, the butterfly is gorgeous. Fingers xd and thanks for the giveaway.

  11. Another brilliant steampunk set - that rose is lovely, I'm so glad it did get included! Steampunk, very definitely, but without the focus on cogs/watches that seems to overwhelm a lot of things. This is definitely going on my wish list for the new year (can't afford it before then or I'd be mugging the postman tomorrow!)

  12. This is a great set of stamps and I love the roses
    The Christmas sentiments are brilliant ......well done on getting them done for this year
    I love your multi media piece and I'm looking forward to seeing all the DT pieces and to who the new designer is
