New Stamp sets ~ Isometric Fun

Hello and welcome, we are showcasing a couple of new stamp sets yay!... although I had these at the Handmade fair I haven't had the chance to put them in the shop...
Isometric Fun
Like clockwork (coordinates with the Clockwork frame).

Please check out the amazing samples below the team have created some beautifully inspiring projects...

Kim





There are so many possibilities with the isometric fun set, I could have stamped so many different designs, the simple design means making custom backgrounds so very versatile.
The Like clockwork set was designed to coordinate initially with the Hatter frame, although it can easily be used in it's own right as shown here.



Chris
Chris made a journal layout using the stamp sets Isometric Fun used to stamp inside the hair outline, Female Face to create her face and Rose Layers to stamp the roses.


Delphine


Delphine created two CAS cards, stamping the grid from Isometric Fun on a white background. She then used elements from the set to have some coloured triangles. On her first card, she added the Just A Note sentiment from the Butterfly Pieridae set and the You Quote Comfort Zone rubber sentiment for her second card.

On these two CAS cards, Delphine created her backgrounds using watercolour markers, then stamped the Isometric Fun grid. For the blue card, she combined it with a candle from the Birthday Wishes set and a birthday sentiment. For the last card, she stamped Thank You in Versafine and added hearts from the Butterfly Pieridae using the grid's guidelines.



Tracey
Tracey created this beautiful angel using the large Paperangel stamp set along with its coordinating MDF substrates kit, with some texture detail from the Pop Dots - Design a Tweed sets.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your summer hols are off to a great start.
HuGs Kim and the Team x
