The first weekend of the month must mean it is a new Hunkydory launch of 'For the Love of Stamps' :)
This month I was lucky enough to get to use 3 of the latest stamp and mask releases to create my design team samples, and they were quite different in their styles giving me lots of opportunity to try out a variety of ideas.
Today I am going to show one sample from each of the collections to give you a taster, and the rest can be seen, along with all the different stamp sets available, on Create and Craft throughout today and tomorrow (please check the schedules for the actual show timings as they can be subject to change).
Shows can be seen on the following channels...

Here is my first project for you...
This mini notebook was created using the stamp and mask set 'Just My Type'. I created my own book using mount board and a cinch machine then used the mask with distress inks and texture paste to create the background. The lines stamp was also used to create extra interest behind the main image. The typewriter was stamped, cut out and coloured and one of the sentiments used on the 'paper'. The final touch was to use some of the letter stamps and then punch them out.
'Noble Knights and Naughty Dragons' is a fantastic set for creating a variety of scenes. Here I used the matching mask to create a shadowed castle and the grass outline. The main image was stamped and coloured using Illustrator markers from Spectrum Noir. The moon was created with a sticky note mask and water was flicked over the distress ink background to add some starry texture.
My final stamp set was great for combining with other sets that I had already. 'Simply Vases' gives you 3 different shaped and sized vases along with a variety of sentiments. The matching mask has lots of patterns for altering the vases which is how I created the scalloped pattern on this vase. I used the vase in combination with the Rose Bouquet stamp set from a previous launch and the sentiment is one of the many that comes on the vase set.
I am sure there will be lots of inspiring demonstrations across the weekend and I will try to pop back with some more of my samples over the coming weeks.
Have a lovely weekend!
